Microcarrier Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast (2024-2030)

Microcarrier Market was valued at USD 2.33 Billion in 2023, and it is expected to reach USD 4.84 Billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 11.02 % during the forecast period (2024-2030) A microcarrier is a support matrix that permits adherent cells to proliferate in bioreactors. Instead of being cultivated on a flat surface, cells are cultured on the surface of spherical microcarriers, with each particle carrying hundreds of cells, allowing expansion capacity to be amplified many times over. It enables simple scaling up of culture systems for industrial production of cell or protein-based medicines or for research objectives. These solid or porous spherical matrices have a diameter of 100-300 um to provide for ample surface area while preserving enough cell adhesion and support, and their density is just above that of water (1 g/ml) to keep them suspended in a stirred tank. They can be made of synthetic materials like acrylamide or natural ones like gelatin. The benefits of microcarrier technology in the biotech industry include (a) ease of scale-up, (b) the ability to precisely control cell growth conditions in sophisticated, computer-controlled bioreactors, (c) a reduction in the overall floor space and incubator volume required for a given-sized manufacturing operation, (d) a significant reduction in technician labour, and (e) a more natural environment for cell culture that promotes differentiation. The ability to contain more cells in smaller quantities is a significant benefit of employing microcarrier suspensions for cell culture over typical two-dimensional plates. Microcarrier cell suspensions in stirred tank bioreactors provide uniform distribution via homogeneous stirring. Furthermore, mechanical stimulation promotes natural cell morphology and differentiation in the three-dimensional and high-density suspension environment. Two-dimensional plate culture, on the other hand, tends to de-differentiate cells across numerous passages, hence the total number of passes must be controlled. Microcarrier suspensions may also be readily scaled up by using higher concentrations of microparticles in bigger stirred tank reactors, while maintaining a small amount of laboratory space for growth. Furthermore, microcarriers are being researched as a means of delivering cells for targeted tissue engineering.Microcarrier MarketTo know about the Research Methodology:-Request Free Sample Report

Microcarrier Market Dynamics

Rising demand for cell-based vaccines: Population expansion, climate change, and more human-animal interaction have all raised the risk of new viral epidemics. For example, influenza and COVID-19 have shown to be unpredictable and recurrent phenomena that impose a large economic and social impact. The WHO reported 117.33 million cases of COVID-19 worldwide as of March 10, 2022, including 2.61 million fatalities. The rising prevalence of infectious illnesses, as well as the increased threat of pandemics, are predicted to boost global vaccination demand. Cell culture is becoming an increasingly important aspect of vaccine manufacturing in the pharmaceutical business. Previously, vaccinations were created by cultivating and extracting viruses in chicken eggs, which was a time-consuming operation. Due to its shorter lead time and capacity to create vaccines in bigger numbers as needed, cell-based vaccine manufacturing has emerged as a significantly more efficient technology in this respect. Aside from these advantages, clinical research have shown that cell-based vaccinations are just as effective, safe, and efficient as egg-based vaccines. Adherent cell production: The most extensively utilised strategy for scaling up adherent cell production is to culture them on tiny spherical beads called microcarriers in a stirred bioreactor. Microcarriers, which are generally approximately 100 m in diameter, bypass surface area limits by adding a dimension for cell growth. Microcarrier-based biomanufacturing has grown well established and currently constitutes a sizable business at all production sizes. Cell therapy is a growing market for microcarriers and has overtaken vaccine manufacturing as the second largest market sector. The bulk of cell treatments are now based on non-adherent hematopoietic lineage cells that do not require a support substrate. However, as the therapeutic potential of adherent MSC and iPSC-based therapeutics grows, so will the demand for biomanufacturing capacity capable of scaling up these adherent cell types. Rising monoclonal antibody production: The increased popularity of targeted therapy options for diseases such as cancer and autoimmune and inflammatory disorders is driving up demand for monoclonal antibodies throughout the world. Because antibodies are given in high concentrations, the need for mAbs is also substantial. In December 2019, the FDA authorised 16 monoclonal antibody medicines globally, up from 10 in 2016. The bulk of these medications were approved for cancer and immune-related disorders. Development of cost-effective cells: Microcarriers contribute to the creation of low-cost cells by reducing both variable and fixed costs in large-scale production. Because of technical advancements, the current situation has altered, and the role of microcarriers in cell treatment has increased. Dissolvable microcarriers, for example, are now available on the market and are composed of cross-linked polysaccharide polymers that dissolve readily during the cell harvesting process. Because the microcarriers are totally dissolved, there is no need for separation, and the downstream process operates smoothly. As a result, these microcarriers are seen as potentially valuable beads for large-scale cell treatment or cell manufacturing. High cost of cell biology research: Cell biology entails considerable research and development of novel therapeutics such as stem cell and gene therapies. To deliver reliable findings, research equipment, media, reagents, and other goods must be of the highest quality. The cost of cell biology research has grown significantly as a result of the rising necessity to maintain high-quality standards (by the use of high-grade materials) and comply with regulatory body norms. As a result, many academic institutions and small businesses with limited funding are unable to pursue cell biology research. Because microcarriers are used in stem cell biology, this aspect is expected to limit market expansion. Furthermore, because microcarriers cling to cells, the cells must be collected, raising downstream processing costs. This is expected to restrain the growth of the microcarrier market.
