Global Industrial Microbiology Market to Reach US$ 15.8 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Expanding Pharmaceutical Industry

Published on Nov 07, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Industrial Microbiology Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027," finds that the global industrial microbiology market size reached a value of US$ 9.7 Billion in 2021. 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.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

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$ 15.8 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.4% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
