Global Microbial Growth Media Market 2017-2021

About Microbial Growth Media

Growth media is of great importance for microbiological tests; it helps obtain pure cultures, grow and count microbial cells, and cultivate and select microorganisms. High-quality growth media is important to achieve accurate and reproducible results of microbiological tests. The microbial growth medium encourages the growth of microorganisms. Microbial growth media contains nutrients, growth promoting factors, energy sources, buffer salts, minerals, metals, and gelling agents. It has been used by microbiologists since the nineteenth century. Although, due to increased use of rapid methods and technology, pharmaceutical quality control laboratories and food and beverage industry still rely on microbial growth media.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global microbial growth media market to grow at a CAGR of 6.36% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Microbial Growth Media Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global microbial growth media market: BD, bioMérieux, Merck Millipore, and Thermo Fisher Scientific.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bio-Rad Laboratories, Eiken Chemical, HiMedia Laboratories, Neogen, and Scharlab.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is increase trend of biomimetic. Biomimetic is the study and development of synthetic systems that mimic the structure and function of biologically produced substances, and biological mechanisms and processes. Several research studies are being conducted in this field. For instance, in an effort to lower the long-term inflammatory effects in patients undergoing transplantation, genetically engineered bacteria and viruses are used to mediate the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which reduces the severity and length of inflammatory response of the body where transplantation is carried out. It also accelerates the healing of the transplanted area. Electricity producing capacity of microorganisms like yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and bacteria (Escherichia coli) from wastewater are also being studied.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is high demand for improved antibiotics. The prevalence of infectious diseases has increased. and based on the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 19.1 million people visited physician offices for infectious and parasitic diseases in 2013. The most common infectious diseases are common cold, lyme disease, influenza, HIV/AIDS, whooping cough, tuberculosis etc. whereas, tuberculosis has infected one-third of the global population, with approximately 10,000 new cases reported in the US alone in 2013.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is high cost of specific media components. The microbial growth medium is the major component for culturing of microorganisms as it provides the important nutrients, growth factors, and hormones for microbial growth and also controls the pH and osmotic pressure of the microbial growth. Although earlier experiments were carried out by using natural media extracted from a plant tissue or body fluids, the need for standardization and media quality led to the discovery of defined media. Several selective and differential media have been discovered which have various components specific to particular microorganisms, for instance, MacConkey Agar and Blood Agar.
