Microbial Culture Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Demand for Microbial Culture from Food to Drive the Global Market - Food and water are the easiest and the most common method of pathogen transmission. Concerns for food safety have witnessed a rise owing to the growing incidences of food poisoning over the years. With strict government regulations and guidelines about food safety and preservation coupled with the rising number of eatable manufacturing and processing entities, the microbial culture market is expected to witness lucrative growth in the global market over the forecast period. For instance, it was estimated that around 2 billion metric tons of food were consumed across the globe in 2021.

  • Rising Demand for Microbial Culture in Water Testing Industries – there is a higher demand for microbial culture for wastewater treatment to prevent decomposition. It is used to decrease BOD, COD, and SS concentrations. For instance, in 2020, it was projected that more than 55% of the wastewater flown from household settings was treated safely globally.

  • Rising Occurrences of Infectious Diseases - The growing cases of infections, diseases, pandemics, and the need to identify the organism causing the disease combined with the ongoing research and development in the healthcare sector are some of the factors anticipated to drive the growth of the global microbiological culture market over the coming years. Additionally, the technological advancements in ‘starter cultures’ will play an imperative role in widening the applications of microbial culture during the forecast period. For instance, in 2021, nearly 15 thousand people died on account of infectious diseases in Japan alone.

  • Growing Demand for Antibiotics – a microbial culture is used to identify any sort of germs or fungus in antibiotics to prevent any kind of infection. Based on the data released by World Health Organization (WHO), it was stated that antimicrobial resistance will put nearly 24 million people into poverty by 2030.  

Challenges

  • Escalating Prizes of Antibiotics
  • Despite the increasing research and development activities by various leading companies for the development of antibiotics through microbial culture, the rising price of antibiotics coupled with the resistance to antibiotics against certain infections are a few limitations that are anticipated to directly affect the growth of the global microbial culture market. Additionally, the high price related to different types of media culture is expected to hamper the expansion of the microbial culture market over the forecast period.
  • Escalated Requirement for Invasive Specimens

Microbial Culture Segmentation

Culture Type (Bacterial Culture, Eukaryotic Culture)

The global microbial culture market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by culture type into the bacterial culture and eukaryotic culture. Out of these two types, the bacterial culture segment is estimated to gain the largest market share in the year 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the increasing application in pharmaceutical microbiology for developing antibiotics and vaccines, food microbiology, and disease research. Bacterial cultures are performed to diagnose any sort of bacterial infection by using various types of samples such as blood, spinal fluid, stool, mucus, urine, skin, and others. Hence, the presence of various types of bacteria and viruses causing infectious diseases is also estimated to drive market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in 2019, it was anticipated that nearly 1 thousand species of viruses and bacteria existed in this world. Hence, all these factors are anticipated to hike the segment growth over the forecast period.

Media (Simple, Complex, Synthetic, Special Media)

The global microbial culture market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by media into simple, complex, synthetic, and special media. Amongst these segments, the complex media segment is expected to garner a significant share in the year 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the capacity of the complex media to provide a full range of growth factors required to cultivate an unknown bacteria or bacteria with complex nutritional requirements. Further, the demand for ready-to-use, off-the-shelf items in dehydrated and prepared culture media has increased substantially which is expected to further propel the growth of this segment in the coming years. Complex media has plenty of nutrients containing water-soluble extracts of animal or plant tissues. Common instances of complex media are chocolate agar, nutrient broth, tryptic soy broth, and others. Complex media is added to microbial strains to add particular characteristics.
