Biotechnology Market worth over $950bn by 2027

  • Published Date: May 19, 2021

Biotechnology Market size is set to surpass USD 950 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Rising demand for products developed using agricultural biotechnology and growing penetration of biotech tools to develop or modify genetic traits of plants will drive the market growth. Extensive utilization of biotech tools across agriculture such as tissue culture, marker-assisted selection, genetically modified (GM) crops & genetic engineering has resulted in higher yield and pest resistant crops. Genetically engineered crops develop resistance against specific pests, plant diseases and insects that further help in reducing the use of synthetic pesticides. The increased use of novel biotech processes in agricultural disciple would help in meeting the rising needs of the population. Furthermore, bioagriculture-based firms are emphasizing on enhancing the current technologies to offer advanced agricultural innovations for increasing productivity.

Increasing prevalence of chronic ailments will boost the biotechnology market expansion

Rising prevalence of chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes and respiratory disorders across the world will stimulate the adoption of biotechnology across the global market. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2020, the prevalence of chronic conditions was projected to be around 57% across the globe. Moreover, according to the Global Burden of Disease Study, there has been tremendous growth in various risk factors as well as non-communicable diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and cancer. Additionally, growth in numbers of deaths owing to cardiovascular disease has risen to more than 16% in 2020. Life expectancy in the U.S. has decreased to around 79 as compared to other high-income countries. Similar trends are observed on the global scale with significant rise in chronic ailments that would offer numerous opportunities, thereby facilitating the industry growth.

Over the last three decades, chronic conditions have showcased exponential increase. For instance, leading conditions responsible for deaths are stroke, diabetes, chronic kidney disease, lung cancer and ischemic heart disease in the elderly population. Comprehensive applications of biotechnology in developing diagnostics, therapeutics medications and gene therapies for treating these chronic conditions is expected to foster the industry expansion globally. Heavy investments to discover and produce effective therapeutic solutions against chronic diseases will bolster the market revenue.

High product acceptance with continuous product development will impel the biotechnology market value
