Biotechnology is the area of biology that uses biological systems, living organisms, or derivatives thereof, to develop or modify products and processes for specific use. Biotechnology deploys biomolecular and cellular processes to develop products and technologies for improving the quality of human life. It has major applications in agriculture, medicine and food science among others. Advent of new technology in biotechnology field is revolutionizing the market over the recent years, and thus will lead to industry expansion during the forecast period.

The 1900s is reminisced by the industrial historians as ‘the Information Technology Era’ and the ‘Advanced Physics Era’, whereas, the 2000s might be manifested as the ‘Biotechnology Era’. This is due to rapid developments in biotechnology that are projected to entirely transform numerous aspects of life in imminent decades.  However, the field of biotechnology can trace its accurate birth back to the beginning of civilization, when the early man discovered ability to ferment grains to prepare alcoholic brews. In addition, utility of cross-pollinating harvests to produce novel hybrid strains marks the most primitive form of genetic engineering. The late 19th century was recognized to be revolutionary in biology. Some of the significant advances throughout this period include:

  • Structures for exploratory fermentation and other microbial progresses were recognized by Pasteur, Joseph and Lister Robert Koch
  • Micro-organisms were discovered
  • Gregor Mendel's effort on genetics

In the modern period, scientists had access to almost all rudimentary tools for their applications. Mainstream of basic ideas was expounded through these tools, that accelerated the track to imperative scientific discoveries. These discoveries and studies have infinite applications and implications in the market space. Biotechnology has both destructive and beneficial potential. Opting it for humanity is expected to bring major advances and drive the market growth over the coming years.

Large patient pool worldwide to foster the market demand for biopharmaceuticals

Growing incidence of chronic ailments such as diabetes and cancer worldwide will primarily upsurge the market demand for biotechnology products over the forecast timeframe. According to the International Diabetes Federation, in 2017, diabetes affected more than 425 billion individuals worldwide and the number is estimated to exceed 625 billion people by 2045. Thus, increasing prevalence of such chronic diseases, owing to various factors including lifestyle changes, stress and unhealthy dietary patterns, will drive the demand for effective drugs and vaccines, thus boosting the industry progress over the forecast period.

Moreover, wide-ranging applications of biotechnology, improving healthcare access in remote areas, unmet medical needs in certain geographies and growing R&D investment in the field are some of the other factors that will spur the market revenue. Furthermore, rising demand for bio-based agricultural products and growing adoption of biotechnology practices in clinical research will accelerate the market expansion. However, risks associated with genetic information may hinder industry growth to certain extent in the coming years.
