Bioreactors are equipment used to cultivate living cells or tissues under highly controlled conditions for production of biologics, vaccines, and therapeutics. They are widely used in cell culture and enzyme engineering. Bioreactors offer distinct advantages over conventional processes such as enhanced control, favorable growth environments, and high product yields. Growing adoption of bioreactors in the biopharmaceutical industry for cell and gene therapies has been a major driver for the market.
The Global Bioreactors Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 23.62 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 11% over the forecast period 2024 to 2030.
The extensive application of bioreactors in developing cell and gene therapies is a major driver for the market. Cell therapies involve cultivation of human cells using bioreactors for drug development and testing. Bioreactors have also emerged as a promising technology for manufacturing viral vectors used in gene and immunotherapy. Growing demand for biologics and investments in biopharma R&D further support the bioreactors market.
Political: Bioreactor manufacturing and use is regulated by various governmental agencies like FDA in U.S. and EMA in Europe to ensure safety and efficacy. The regulations require manufacturing authorizations and certificates to allow marketing of biotherapeutic products developed using bioreactors.
