Newborn Calf Serum Market

Newborn Calf Serum Market Propelled by Rising Demand from Stem Cell and Biotechnology Research

Newborn calf serum is derived from blood extracted from newborn calves less than 20 days old. It is commonly used in cell culture media as a supplement for propagating and maintaining the growth of various cell types due to its richness in growth factors, attachment and nutrient factors. Newborn calf serum is a rich source of nutrients that enhance cell attachment and growth for various cell types including stem cells, primary cells and immortalized cell lines. The Global Newborn Calf Serum Market Size is estimated to be valued at US$ 730 million in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 9.9% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

The rising demand from biotechnology and stem cell research is the major trend propelling the growth of the newborn calf serum market. Newborn calf serum is considered the gold standard in cell culture media and is majorly used as a cell culture supplement in stem cell therapeutics development, bioprocessing, vaccine production and biomedical research. According to a report by the International Society for Stem Cell Research, over 700 clinical trials using stem cell therapeutics were underway globally in 2020, indicating rising interest from pharmaceutical companies towards stem cell-based therapies. This is expected to significantly drive the consumption of newborn calf serum for stem cell bioprocessing and research activities. Furthermore, growing R&D in regenerative medicines and rollout of advanced stem cell clinical trials for various diseases including COVID-19 is further augmenting the demand for newborn calf serum.
