The bovine serum is used as a raw material for research activities conceded out in pharmaceutical organizations. The rising number of pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and diagnostics companies demand higher bovine serum for use. Moreover, governments of several emerging nations are supporting these research activities of pharmaceutical and biotechnology corporations across the world. The rising awareness about the nutritional benefits of bovine serum is boosting the growth of the bovine serum market. The bovine serum comprises of numerous macromolecular factors, amino acids, lipids, sugars, and hormones that are essential for cell growth.
The impact of COVID-19 remains positive for bovine serum market. As bovine serum is extensively used in in-vitro cell-culture preparation and vaccine development. The in vitro assessment of vaccine and antivirals usually requires a culture media in which the targeted virus or bacteria is cultured and the response is acknowledged. The bovine serum is used as an addition in the growth media for vaccines.
For example, as per the research article titled 'Role of Viral Transport Media in Sustaining COVID-19 Testing' published in October 2020, Viral Transport Media is usually made from Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). A viral transport media is used for preservative and transportation of samples. A viral transport media (VTM) is chosen over other types, as it is a non-toxic mixture of antimicrobials and buffered solutions that can reserve the COVID-19 virus while removing contaminant flora that might impede with testing. The bovine serum-based VTM has proven compatibility with a broad range of clinical tests from PCR to straight antigen testing to culture, permitting various tests to be run from the same sample. Thus, the bovine serum market is anticipated to experience rapid growth.
Stem cells have a broad range of applications in research studies and in the biopharmaceutical industry, due to which the market value for stem cells is the maximum, as compared to the markets for other product types. The efficiency of cellular reprogramming for induced pluripotent stem cells intends to the high demand for the product. Stem cells have benefits over other stem cell types due to the broad variety of their tissue sources. The broader range of application of the stem cell is expected to boost the segmental growth, as it needs bovine serum cell line for tissue culture. Additionally, the benefits of bovine serum in serum cell culture, such as its capability of stem cell morphology, differentiation, cell growth and expansion, and clonal efficacy, are boosting their adoption. A specific lot of bovine serum is tested widely for its capability to help in vitro growth of the undifferentiated stem cell lines. Moreover, there is an increasing trend of acceptance of technologically progressive stem cell lines, which pretences capabilities, containing steam-in-place (SIP) sterilization, filtration for sterility, and many others.
The pharmaceuticals segment was the largest contributor of revenue, and is anticipated to boost considerably, due to rise in adoption of biopharmaceuticals drugs and upsurge in the prevalence of chronic disease such as arthritis, cancer, and cardiovascular disease across the globe are the important factors anticipating the growth of market.
