Global Industrial Microbiology Market to Reach US$ 21.7 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Expanding Pharmaceutical Industry

November 07, 2022 | Healthcare

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Industrial Microbiology Market Report by Product (Equipment and Systems, Reaction Consumables, and Others), Test Type (Sterility Testing, Microbial Limits Testing, Bio-burden Testing, Water and Environmental Testing), End Use Industry (Food and Beverages, Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Agricultural, Environmental, Cosmetic and Personal Care, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," finds that the global industrial microbiology market reached a value of US$ 11.4 Billion in 2023. Industrial microbiology, also known as microbial biotechnology, is the process of using various microorganisms, such as naturally occurring organisms, laboratory-selected mutants, and genetically modified organisms (GMO), for the production of crucial substances, such as food products, antibiotics, enzymes, amino acids, vaccines, and fine chemicals. It assists in replacing non-biodegradable plastics, fossil fuels, and highly polluting chemical processes with biocompatible alternatives. Besides this, industrial microbiology finds extensive application in manufacturing alcohol and acetone across the globe.

Global Industrial Microbiology Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the expanding pharmaceutical industry. Industrial microbiology is used to manufacture vaccines, antibiotics, and steroids. It also aids in preventing microbial contamination of injectables, nasal solutions, drugs, eye drops, and inhalation products. In addition, the rising product adoption in the food and beverage (F&B) industry is to produce fermented food products and convert industrial food waste into value-added products. Besides this, industrial microbiology finds extensive applications in the oil and gas industry as it is not impacted by crude oil prices and does not require vast energy inputs. This, coupled with the rapid depletion of oil resources and increasing energy demands, is catalyzing the need for eco-friendly and cost-effective oil recovery technologies. Moreover, the increasing utilization of industrial microbiology in the cosmetics and personal care industry is anticipated to propel market growth in the coming years. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach a value of US$ 21.7 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
