Industrial Microbiology Market – Insights

Industrial microbiology is a branch of applied microbiology in which microorganisms are used in industrial processes. It finds application in the pharmaceutical, food and beverages, and chemical sectors. In the pharmaceutical sector, industrial microbiology is used in mass production of antibiotics and vitamins. In the food industry, fermentation through yeasts and bacteria is used in production of food products such as breads.

The global industrial microbiology market is estimated to account for US$ 10,816.6 Mn in terms of value in 2018 and is expected to reach US$ 20,227.1 Mn by the end of 2027.

Global Industrial Microbiology Market: Drivers

Increasing development and launch of antibiotics, vitamins, and vaccines is expected to boost growth of the global industrial microbiology market over the forecast period. For instance, in August 2019, Nabriva Therapeutics received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for launch of Xenleta, an antibiotic for the treatment of community-acquired bacterial pneumonia (CABP).

Moreover, development of new enzymes is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, in January 2020, CARBIOS, a provider of bio-industrial solutions, partnered with Novozymes, a biological solutions company, for the development of Carbios’ proprietary PET-degrading enzymes at both a demonstration level and an industrial scale.

North America region held dominant position in the global industrial microbiology market in 2018, accounting for 27.4% share in terms of value, followed by Europe.

Global Industrial Microbiology Market: Restraints

High costs involved in maintaining aseptic process and manufacturing of sterile goods is expected to hinder growth of the global industrial microbiology market. Sterilization of final products such as pharmaceutical excipients and intermediates, which are produced using microbial technology, is indispensable before packaging. This is owing to high risk of contamination. However, maintaining sterile conditions requires high capital investment.

Moreover, longer time required for incubation and product release is also expected to hamper growth of the market. Microbiology-based products depend on product release cycles and incubation time period of the microorganisms. However, incubation and product release is time consuming. 

Global Industrial Microbiology Market: Opportunities 

Increasing demand for microbiologic applications in vaccine development is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities for players in the market. Molecular biology provides a rationale-based approach for R&D of vaccines for the treatment of several diseases. The use of various bacterium to create recombinant vaccines is also expected to shorten vaccination regime within the veterinary field. Moreover, vaccine manufacturers are expected to significantly benefit from increasing production of influenza vaccines.  

Application of advanced techniques in comprehending patterns of infectious diseases is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, next generation sequencing is used in diagnosis and monitoring of infectious diseases using clinical microbiology. It is also used in understanding the spreading pattern of pathogens.

Equipments and systems segment in the global industrial microbiology market was valued at US$ 2,834.6 Mn in 2018 and is expected to reach US$ 5,893.4 Mn by 2027 at a CAGR of 8.4% during the forecast period.

Market Trends/Key Takeaways

The market is witnessing increasing application of industrial microbiology in manufacturing of empty capsules. Microbiological techniques are used to enhance the disintegration process of capsules. Moreover, increasing demand for and development of empty capsules is also boosting growth of the market. For inatance, in November 2019, Qualicaps, Inc presented its products and service offerings for the hard-capsule dosage form at the CPHI WORLDWIDE 2019 conference

The demand for fermentation is high in syrup formulations. Fermentation is a primitive process that is widely used in generating high value products such as drugs, beverages, and chemicals. The process applies the basic rules of microbiology where microbes play an important role and their tests are necessary to ensure the quality of the product.

Global Industrial Microbiology Market: Competitive Landscape

Major players operating in the global industrial microbiology market include, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc., Becton, Dickinson and Company, Asiagel Corporation, Eppendorf AG, bioMérieux SA, Novamed, QIAGEN, Sartorius AG, 3M, Merck KGaA, and Danaher Corporation.

Global Industrial Microbiology Market: Key Developments

Major players in the market are focused on launching new products to expand their product portfolio. For instance, in September 2019, Charles River Laboratories International, Inc. announced the launch of two new products in its Microbial Solutions portfolio: an updated EndoScan-V software platform for endotoxin detection and measurement; and the introduction of the Celsis automated detection solution for rapid sterility to ensure continued product quality and contamination control for pharmaceutical manufacturing clients.

In June 2019, Hygiena, a provider of rapid microbial detection, monitoring, and identification solutions, launched the new EnSureTouch Monitoring System – a next-generation monitoring system that collects, analyzes, and reports data from multiple quality tests.

Industrial Microbiology involves commercial use of micro-organisms in various industrial processes such as fermentation. Use of micro-organisms for production processes has been in use since 18th century and was facilitated by discovery of various microorganisms over the years. Depending on nature of process, the industrial microbiology has two aspects, namely production of microbial products through fermentation processes and use of microorganisms for services, such as pollution control, to curb the contamination, and waste treatment. Microbial products produced using microbiology include bread, beer, cheese, enzymes, energy sources, food ingredients, and pharmaceuticals. Pharmaceutical industries require sterile environments, especially, injectable manufacturing plants as injectable products interfere directly with the circulatory system, where microbiology plays an important role. Second aspect of the industrial microbiology is employed for pollution control and restricting and creating microbial free environment.
