Some of the major factors contributing to the growth of cell and tissue culture supplies industry are growing applications of cell and tissue culture equipment and consumables across numerous fields, such as vaccines and antibodies production, disease treatment, and drug discovery; increasing prevalence of chronic diseases; rising awareness about cell culture techniques; and advent of 3D cell culture models in the life sciences industry.
The market players are strengthening their position in the cell and tissue culture supplies market by adopting the acquisition strategy. For instance, in September 2018, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (Thermo Fisher), signed a definitive agreement with Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD), a medical technology company, to acquire BD’s Advanced Bioprocessing business. The acquisition is subjected to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in early 2019. After the completion of this acquisition, the acquired business would be integrated into Thermo Fisher’s Life Sciences Solutions segment. Thermo Fisher Life Sciences, through its various service programs, will enhance cell culture media formulations to improve yield and reduce variability in biopharmaceutical applications.
Some of the other key players in the cell and tissue culture supplies industry are Merck KGaA; VWR International LLC; Lonza Group; Corning Inc.; DWK Life Sciences Inc.; Affymetrix Inc.; Becton, Dickinson and Company; GE Healthcare; and Eppendorf AG.
