Need for Antibiotics Production on Large Scale Augments Microbiology Culture Demand

The increasing practices of microbiology culture on account of an aggressive demand for antibiotics could be key for the rise of the world microbiology culture market. Produced by microorganisms, antibiotics as secondary metabolites are extensively used in the treatment of various protozoan and bacterial infections. Since antibiotics occur naturally, their available quantity in the natural environment does not match with the quantity required for large-scale production. This has been foretold to intensify the requirement of microbial culture for obtaining antibiotics.

In the coming years, the demand for microbial culture could increase with the elevating consumption of antibiotics triggered by surging access to antibiotic drugs, improving healthcare expenditure, and telling frequency of infectious diseases. Furthermore, the BRICS economies that have secured a significant share in the consumption of antibiotics over the last decade, according to the Lancet Infectious Diseases Commission, have been prognosticated to raise the hopes of players functioning in the world microbiology culture market.

Expensive and Continual Functioning of Fermentation Vessels Increases Costs

High costs associated with culture media and the requirement of continual running of fermentation vessels over several weeks have been projected to impede the rise of the worldwide microbiology culture market. Producers of antibiotics could find it difficult to curb the cost of fermentation operated on a large scale. Moreover, alternative nutrient sources essential for the growth of various microorganisms have been forecasted to be difficult to identify, which could delay the growth in the worldwide microbiology culture market.

The title of the report is “Bone Morphogenetic Proteins Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2014 – 2022”.

This 65 page report gives readers a comprehensive overview of the bone morphogenetic proteins market. Browse through 13 data tables and 16 figures to unlock the hidden opportunities in this market:

According to the report, the market for bone morphogenetic proteins is fuelled by the growing geriatric population, increasing sports and trauma injuries, and the increasing count of spinal fusion surgeries. In addition, the growing demand for minimally invasive surgeries and a rise in population having lower back pain issues will also augment the demand for bone morphogenetic proteins. On the other hand, factors such as the presence of a number of other bone graft substitutes and the detrimental side-effects caused by the off-label usage of bone morphogenetic proteins may impede the growth of the market in the coming years. Furthermore, the soaring costs of bone morphogenetic proteins may also pose a negative effect on the growth of the market.

The report segments the market on the basis of type into rhBMP-2 and rhBMP-7. Amongst these, in 2013, the segment of rhBMP-2 held the largest share in the market on the basis of revenue. This is because rhBMP-2 has been broadly accepted by surgeons and physicians globally owing to it being effective in carrying out lower back spinal fusions. On the other hand, the segment of rhBMP-7 is predicted to lose all of its market share in the forthcoming years owing to the elimination of OP-1/Opgenra from the market, starting from August 2014.
