 Reasons for Doing This Study

Cell culture is the process by which cells are grown in a laboratory in a controlled environment. Media, sera and reagents used in this technique have a major role to play in the growth and quality of cells. Cell culture is one of the key tools used in cellular and molecular biology. It provides excellent prototypical systems for studying the normal physiology and biochemistry of cells and is also used to study the effects of drugs and toxic compounds on cells as well as mutagenesis and carcinogenesis. Cell culture also plays an important role in the pharmaceutical industry as it is used in drug screening, development, and large-scale manufacturing of biological compounds. Extensive research in the field of media, sera and reagents in cell culture has revealed their usage in developing efficient, user-friendly and affordable products. Modern industries have now begun to explore the advantages of cell culture techniques/products in their productions and processes. This has led to a steady market for media, sera and reagents used in cell cultures.

R&D spending, along with increasing competition, patent expiries and new technologies are giving the market a new direction. The advancements and increased emphasis on the discovery of new biotherapeutics for a better healthcare system, along with new product launches, are expected to drive the market to grow in the future. This study looks at most of the systems affected by these factors.

Acquisition strategies and collaborations by companies are also covered in this report. This study discusses the strengths and weaknesses of each type of product in light of new technologies, growing competition, and changing customer needs.
