Global Biologics Safety Testing Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global biological safety testing market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.13% from 2024 to 2029 and the market size is forecasted to grow from USD 4.63 billion in 2024 and USD 8.97 billion by 2029.

Current Biologics Safety Testing Market

For new product categories, biological safety testing is essential. For example, biological safety testing guarantees that vaccines and biopharmaceuticals are not contaminated and meet safety quality standards. Biopharmaceutical products are used to diagnose, prevent, and treat a wide range of disorders. Biologics are complex compounds made from the genes of live organisms and combined utilizing modern DNA technologies. Biologics are advanced medications used to treat cancer, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and other diseases. Recombinant proteins, tissues, genes, allergens, cells, blood components, and vaccinations are examples of biological medications made from live organisms.


The rising threat of pandemics and viral diseases worldwide is anticipated to boost the global biological safety testing market growth.

Pandemics and communicable diseases have become much more common in recent years. In addition, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries' growth and significant R&D expenditure by key companies in the life sciences industry, and an increase in the number of new drug launches in recent years are driving the market. These factors are expected to help boost the worldwide biological safety testing market forward.The norms and legislation very strictly regulate quality control. The microbial contamination of the medicine could be harmful to patients' health and lead to long-term repercussions such as cancer or other health problems. These factors create a lucrative possibility for the market's expansion. Furthermore, rising markets and growing biopharmaceutical outsourcing are likely to present considerable growth opportunities for participants in the global biological safety testing market. Biotechnology-derived products, often known as biologicals, have found their way into many facets of healthcare, including illness diagnosis, prevention, and therapy.However, there are certain possible safety concerns that stem from the production procedures and the products' complex biological and structural properties. As a result, rigorous and systematic biological safety testing is required for these products, which will finally allow for a sufficient safety assessment prior to any clinical inquiry. As a result, the market is likely to grow during the forecast period.


The lack of qualified professionals to undertake biological safety testing procedures and the high investment costs connected with biological safety cabinets may hinder market growth to some extent. Reluctance to accept the product on the market is also regarded as a barrier to the market's overall expansion. The constraints and regulations regulating the use of UV lights in safety cabinets are also seen as a key challenge to the market's development.

Global Biological Safety Testing Market Analysis  By Products & Services

In 2023, the services segment accounted for the largest share of the global biological safety testing market. The large share of this segment can be attributed to biopharmaceutical manufacturers' limited financial resources, capacity constraints, the need to reduce time to market, complex manufacturing requirements, significant investments required to set up manufacturing facilities, and the growing drugs pipeline, all of which have prompted a shift toward outsourcing biologics safety testing to service providers.

Global Biological Safety Testing Market Analysis By Test Type

Over the forecast period, the bioburden testing segment is expected to hold a considerable proportion of the global biological safety testing market. In addition, organizations such as the World Health Organization have also released guidance for health managers and workers on the infrastructure and standard processes that must be in place for proper sterilization and decontamination of medical devices. These factors are expected to drive up demand for proper sterilization, which will drive up demand for Bioburden testing, which serves as an effective tool in the validation and revalidation of sterilization processes and the assessment of cleaning process efficiency and routine monitoring of manufacturing processes to ensure safety.

Global Biological Safety Testing Market Analysis By Application

The monoclonal antibody manufacturing segment held the most significant share in the global biological safety testing market during the forecast period due to the growing prevalence of diseases and increased government initiatives to develop monoclonal antibody therapies.

Global Biological Safety Testing Market Analysis By End-User

Research laboratories include a wide range of capabilities, including drug discovery, cell line development, and cell culture, all of which will necessitate biologics safety testing to provide pathogen-free products and services. In addition, rising academic institutes require installing advanced equipment to comply with biosafety regulations. As a result of the increased focus on research and academia, demand for biological safety testing is expected to increase in the forecast period.
