Recombinant Growth Factors to Account for Over 45% of Overall Demand through 2031: Persistence Market Research

Published On : Feb 05, 2021

Cell culture supplements are the backbone of culturing methods and techniques in mammalian and microbial cell culture. Routinely performed cell-based assays and cell expansion processes require several growth factors to boost cell growth in the culture. Recombinant cell culture supplements serve an array of applications, such as stem cell research, drug discovery, oncology research, and regenerative medicine. Recombinant cell culture supplements and growth factors are used for culturing stem cells for expansion and differentiation into other cell types. Stem cell research is growing and adoption is increasing with time. Recombinant cell culture supplements such as albumin and transferrin are key components of mammalian cell culture. Increasing bioprocessing activities for production of novel biologics are likely to upswing the growth of the recombinant cell culture supplements market over the coming years.

These days, a majority of supplements used in research and manufacturing are produced using recombinant technology. Recombinant supplements play an important role in gene and cell therapy. Cell therapy requires to grow the cells outside the human body, i.e. in-vitro, and, recombinant cell culture supplements are inevitable for such applications. Due to rapid development within the biopharmaceutical industry, recombinant cell culture supplements are anticipated to witness significant demand through 2031.

According to a latest report published by Persistence Market Research, the global recombinant cell culture supplements market was valued at US$ 441 Mn in 2020, and is predicted to witness an impressive CAGR of over 6% during the forecast period (2021 – 2031).
