Persistence Market Research
Conventional technology used in microbial cell cultivation have trailed behind array-based automated tools for genetic manipulation and discovery of biological systems. Due to this there is a need for systems that enable optimization, rapid testing, and bioprocess developments in low volume, parallel investigations with setup and in short duration that remain nearly independent of the number of bioreactors. Micro bioreactors is a step toward high-throughput bioprocess development, wherein fabrication, designing, fabrication and characterization of polymer based micro bioreactors are integrated with automated sensors and actuators. Plugin-and-flow microfluidic connectors along with fabricated polymer micro-optical lenses are combined in the micro bioreactors for fast set up and ease in use. Also there are various applications of micro bioreactors in possibility of culturing microbial cells for batch, continuous and fed-batch operations. Over the coming years the global micro bioreactors market is expected to witness substantial revenue growth owing to increasing applications and adoption of this technique for production of various by products.
Increase in the R&D expenditure in industrial and life sciences sector is expected to bolster the demand for micro bioreactors technique, especially in the pharmaceutical and food and beverage industry sector. Technical advancements and collaborations among companies and academic institutions for bioprocess development and in vitro toxicity testing and better portfolio management by life sciences companies for extended use and further development of micro bioreactors is expected to boost revenue growth of the micro bioreactors market over the forecast period. Furthermore micro bioreactors offers flexibility and controller of bench-scale reactors resulting in faster and precise results as compared to large-scale fermentations. Also there are additional advantages provided by manufacturers such as small footprint, potential for automation and the availability of online cultivation data is expected to boost the demand for micro bioreactors over the forecast period. However, even though the micro bioreactors industry is expected to witness substantial growth over the forecast period regulatory concerns may hinder the growth of the market. Moreover lack of knowledge and expertise among emerging countries may reduce the pace of revenue growth over the forecast period.
