Global Cell Culture Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global cell culture market size is estimated to grow USD 30.9 billion by 2027 from USD 18.69 billion in 2022. This market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 10.60% during the forecast period. The biotechnology sector has gained importance in the past years due to R&D in healthcare and biological application. The market is experiencing growth due to the demand for monoclonal antibodies, the growing awareness about cell culture-based vaccines, and the importance of single-cell technology for research.

Cell culture is when a cell is removed from an animal or plant tissue and placed in a fluid medium. Under proper conditions, the cell can live and grow. Using this technique, cell lines are established, which are then used for different research purposes such as for chronic diseases and to test new vaccines and medications.

COVID-19 impact on the cell culture market:

Increasing adoption of cell culture techniques for the development of vaccines and biopharmaceuticals is a significant factor driving the growth of the cell culture market. In addition, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a rise in the demand for cell culture product, as the vaccine for COVID -19 are in the trial phase there is the requirement of cell line and different cell culture techniques are used there will be substantial growth in the market from 2020 to 2024.


Expanding the number of regulatory approvals for the increasing demand for improving decisions for single-use technologies, monoclonal antibodies, cell culture-based vaccines, funding for cell-based analysis, and the boat of forwarding cell culture outcomes are primary growth drivers to the global cell culture market. This bottom of the exceptional and forward system is required to improve the global cell culture market in the long run, especially for production on a large-scale basis. The advantages of this are that it is most productive as well as retains a shallow contamination hazard. That serves as a great deal to the players of the market. Besides, with the growing trend encompassing the practice of animal-derived and component-free factors and this recognition of specialization and chemically defined mediums, the global cell culture market is yet to observe extraordinary growth in the following years.

Furthermore, shifting trends towards personalized medicines are major factors anticipated to present growth opportunities for the market. In addition, a rise in the demand for cell culture-based vaccines across the world, which plays an immense role in the healthcare domain, is leveling up the growth of the Cell Culture Market. Furthermore, increasing the scale of research institutes to develop quality drugs in concern towards people's safety is likely to bolster the demand of the cell culture market. Besides, increasing the number of patients suffering from chronic diseases is also accelerating the market's growth extensively. Furthermore, the rise in support from the government by changing schemes to evaluate treatment procedures for ordinary people creates chances for the cell culture market to grow.


Factors like the raised official quality set by leaders of the market and robust regulatory framework imposition may hinder the overall growth of the market in the future years. Moreover, strict regulations and fetal bovine serum that is for cell culture production are to restrict the market growth. Additionally, ethical rules and statutes similar to using great expense in terms of support also act as a controlling administrator for the future extension of the market.

Additionally, market leaders' high standards of quality and the introduction of a robust regulatory framework are the main challenges for the market's growth over the next few years. The ethical rules and regulations that are proportionate to expensive infrastructure spending are also limiting factors for future market growth.

This research report on the global cell culture market has been segmented and sub-segmented based on product, application, end-user, and region.

Cell Culture Market - By Product:

  • Equipment
    • Bioreactors
    • Cell Culture Vessels
    • Cell Culture Storage Equipment
    • Cell Culture Supporting Equipment
  • Consumables
    • Sera, Media & Reagents
    • Bioreactor Accessories

Based on the product, the equipment product-based segment is expected to occupy most of the market share during the forecast period. The growing scale of pharmaceutical industries is escalating the growth of the market.

The sera, media, and reagent segment has accounted for the largest share of the market. Sera and media is an integral part of the cell culture experiment; it gives a better result. Moreover, the segment has a large share because of repeated orders. 

Cell Culture Market - By Application:

  • Biopharmaceutical
    • Vaccine Production
    • Diagnostics
    • Recombinant Therapeutic Proteins
  • Cancer Research
  • Stem Cell Technologies
  • Drug Screening and Development
  • Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine
  • Other Applications

Based on the application, the Biopharmaceutical application type leads with the most significant shares of the market. Increasing funds from private and public organizations are also elevating the demand of the cell culture market eventually.

Cell Culture Market - By End-User:

  • Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Companies
  • Research Institutes

By end-user, the Pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies' end-user category is positioned top in leading the highest shares of the market. The rise in the number of healthcare centers and pharmaceutical companies to meet various drugs and vaccines is prompting the market's growth. Also, the acceptance of single-use technologies in the medical sector is bolstering the demand of the market.

Cell Culture Market - By Region:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
  • The Middle East and Africa

Regionally, North America dominated the global cell culture market in 2019, accounting for 38% of the overall market share. North America has a large share of the market because of animal-component free media and an automated cell culture system, which reduces the time and increases production. -In addition, well-established healthcare demand for biopharmaceutical products, the research in pharmaceuticals, and the presence of the crucial player attribute in the growth of the cell culture market.

Europe and Asia-Pacific are in the 2nd and 3rd in holding the shares, respectively. Asia-Pacific to increase in the coming years, as is evident from the high CAGR value for the region. Another promising area for the Latin American market is to show high growth rates in the coming years.

The Asia Pacific region is to boost the market in the coming years. Due to the introduction and growth of mechanized cell culture methods and growing use of stem cell treatment in the sub-continent, cell culture finds the most application in Canadian and the United States life science labs.
