Key Projections for the Market on Dehydrated Culture Media from 2023 to 2033

According to Future Market Insights’ report, the dehydrated culture media market is forecast to grow at a 7.7% CAGR from 2023 to 2033. As per its findings, a valuation of US$ 4 billion is expected as of 2023, and will ultimately reach US$ 8.4 billion by 2033. Dehydrated culture media applications include checking microbial flora in any samples, including tablets, milk, water, food, or air, and identifying microbes at the species level.

Culture media is of fundamental importance for most microbiological tests: to obtain pure cultures, to grow and count microbial cells, and to cultivate and select microorganisms. Without high-quality media, the possibility of achieving accurate, reproducible, and repeatable microbiological test results is reduced. A microbiological culture medium is a substance that encourages microorganisms' growth, support, and survival. Culture media contains nutrients, growth-promoting factors, energy sources, buffer salts, minerals, metals, and gelling agents.

Since there are many types of microorganisms, each having unique properties and requiring specific nutrients for growth, there are many types based on what nutrients they contain and what function they play in the growth of microorganisms. Given the wide potential of dehydrated culture media, many pharmaceutical and healthcare companies specialize in this field, offering top-of-the-line product portfolios.

Thermo Fischer Scientific, for instance, offers a line of dehydrated culture media products, including convenience formats. These formats include pre-weigh dehydrated culture media sachets and bagged enriched media. Other products include vegetable peptones, laboratory preparations, DCM supplements, and standard packs. Similarly, BD supplies over 400 different BD DifcoTM and BD BBLTM brand media formulations and ingredients in dehydrated form. These media are typically used for laboratorian and bioprocessing specialists. The individual ingredients and final dehydrated product are carefully quality controlled to assure consistent, high-quality performance and obviate the need for media to be prepared in the laboratory from raw materials.

Likewise, Merck’s GranuCultTM Culture Media is a granulated, dehydrated cultured media which are quality controlled by an ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited laboratory, certifying full compliance with EN ISO 11133:2014 as well as with individual standards. Merck’s granulated culture media possess excellent wettability, solubility, and free-flowing properties, making them much easier to use than traditional powdered media. Granulated culture media are also more homogenous, thereby minimizing the separation of components and clumping even under warm or humid conditions and prolonging the shelf life of products to up to five years.

The COVID-19 pandemic opened more opportunistic doors for the market on dehydrated culture media. Since its early stages, the disease made it clear genomics was going to have a big role to play, not only because it was an available technology but also because of its cost-effectiveness. Since March 2020, the increasing number of infections led to a sharp increase in blood culture utilization to assess the intensity of the infection.

Researchers are recognizing the limitations of two-dimensional (2D) cell cultures, given the fact that they do not reproduce the morphology and biochemical features that the cells possess in the original tissue. As an alternative, the three-dimensional (3D) cell culture approach offers researchers the possibility to study cell growth and differentiation under conditions that more closely resemble the in vivo situation of cell shape and cellular environment. Currently, 3D culture models are being employed in many areas of biomedical research because they offer a more realistic milieu than 2D cultures. The era of 2D culture techniques is moving towards a new epoch of culture systems in 3D.

What are the key Drivers of Dehydrated Culture Media Demand Outlook?

Due to recent technological advances, the demand for regenerative drugs has increased sharply in the media market. This has led to the development of new biomedical techniques such as targeted differentiation in the development of regenerative drugs.

In addition, new technologies for rejuvenating worn body parts by injecting new cells have led to the widespread use of regenerative drugs. It also has many uses in the treatment of cardiovascular disease. These events help a global, drained cultural media market to strengthen the growth base, thus opening up new opportunities.

The current COVID19 outbreak has had a positive impact on the growth of the market, as biopharmaceutical innovators are at the forefront of in vitro research and development to find vaccines and antiviral drugs.

In vitro evaluation of vaccines and antiviral agents usually requires a medium in which the target virus or bacteria can be grown and the response determined. The increasing focus on R&D in the pharmaceutical industry is driving the demand for dehydrated cultural media.

The dehydrated culture media demand outlook is anticipated to grow at a higher rate due to the increasing R&D investments by the private as well as publically listed companies for various vaccines and drugs that work against various microorganisms. These increased R&D activities are fueled by the rising problem of viral infections amongst the population, globally.

Advanced Granulation Technology (AGT): The Latest Technology to Transform Dehydrated Culture Media Demand Outlook

Thermo Fisher Scientific has launched the most advanced cell culture media format available in the industry. With today’s high application requirements for productivity, efficiency, and safety, the researchers need an advanced media format that has better performance than traditional dry formats and is available in commercial products Success, thereby speeding up time to market.

The Advanced Granulation Technology has many advantages over the traditional dry media problems like complex culture preparation, difficult filtration process along with multi-step process and batch inconsistency. The Gibco AGT media is set to overcome all these shortcomings and achieve more goals in the culture media industry.
