High-throughput screening technology has turned out to be the need of the hour, especially with large number of biological/chemical compounds being tested to target a particular ailment. As such, leveraging automation and robotics for quick testing of biochemical or biological activities is bound to drive the automated cell culture systems market.

Besides, 3D cell cultures, which were cumbersome and costly earlier, have become feasible, owing to advent of spheroids. Also, they imitate tumors better due to hypoxic core and presence of nutrient gradient.

Researchers in the US and Germany have come up with a protocol to grow 3D cultures of generally used cancer cells to facilitate drug screenings. These factors will continue to put North America and Europe at the top pedestal in the automated cell culture systems market.

Further, requirement of cell lines for devising vaccines against COVID-19 infection will augur well for the automated cell culture market in spite of the pandemic-induced economic downturn.

Key Takeaways from Automated Cell Culture Systems Market

  • Consumables are expected to reach US$ 11 Bn by 2030
  • Academic institutes are expected to take greater interests in research related to cell culture over the forecast period due to increased government funding in developed countries
  • North America and Europe collectively accounted for more than 60% of market share in 2019
  • Infinite cell line cultures held close to 75% of market share in 2019

"Advancements in technology, coupled with large-scale applications in cell-based drug delivery and drug discovery, are projected to drive the global automated cell culture systems market” - says the FMI analyst.
