Bioreactors Market

Bioreactors Market projected to surpass US$ 20.5 Bn by 2023 due to rising demand for monoclonal antibodies and regenerative medicines




Bioreactors are vessels used to culture living cells and help produce therapeutic products such as vaccines, monoclonal antibodies, antibiotics, and recombinant proteins under controlled conditions. These bioreactors provide a protective and controlled environment for cell growth and allow cells to grow in large quantities for efficient production.

The global Bioreactors Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 20.5 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 11% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:
Rising demand for monoclonal antibodies and regenerative medicines is one of the key factors contributing to the growth of the bioreactors market. Monoclonal antibodies have wide applications in cancer treatment, inflammatory diseases, and infection control. With the increasing incidence of chronic diseases globally, demand for monoclonal antibodies is estimated to surge in the coming years. Moreover, advances in regenerative medicine have fostered the development of therapies involving stem cells and tissue engineering. Bioreactors play a vital role in culturing stem cells at a large scale, which is a prerequisite for the production of advanced therapies like gene and cell therapies. This is expected to boost the adoption of bioreactors over the forecast period.
