Impact Analysis of Covid-19
The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.
Industrial microbiology uses different microorganisms such as naturally occurring organisms, laboratory selected mutants, or even genetically modified organisms to produce a large variety of industrial products in large quantities. 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. This branch includes production of various products such as enzymes, foods, beverages, chemical feedstock, fuels and pharmaceuticals, and clean technologies employed for waste treatment and pollution control.
The South East Asia and South Asia industrial microbiology market is estimated to be valued at US$ 626.4 million in 2020 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.0% over the forecast period (2020-2027).

Increasing applications of industrial microbiology in healthcare and end-use industries is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period
Quality control in pharmaceutical and food industries is important as it directly influences product quality, efficacy, and safety. Microbial contamination in injectable, eye drops, drugs, nasal solutions, and food can be prevented with the help of micro-organisms and various tests such as bio-burden and growth promotion tests. Thus, rising application of industrial microbiology in healthcare and other end-use industries for the development of novel therapeutics is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), food contaminated with harmful bacteria, parasites, and viruses can cause more than 200 diseases ranging from diarrhea to cancer. Furthermore, as per same source, food contamination leads to loss of around 33 million lives every year.

South East Asia and South Asia Industrial Microbiology Market – Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe and the World Health Organization declared it a public health emergency. According to the World Health Organization’s report, the manifestation of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has resulted in more than 108.6 million infected individuals worldwide as of February 16, 2021. The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting nearly all industries and social functions, including the biopharmaceutical industry and bioprocessing. Even before the crisis, this essential industry had been undergoing significant, steady advances. Since last 20 years biopharmaceutical industry has been growing with around 12% annual growth rate and now has become matured at some extent at global level
South East Asia and South Asia Industrial Microbiology Market - Restraint
Contamination of microbial culture is the most common issue encountered in pharmaceutical manufacturing units. These contaminants can lead to serious consequences. Contamination in cell culture occurs due to the presence of impurities in media, serum, and water or sometimes the cell lines could get cross contaminated. Moreover, according to a research paper published by Tebu-bio, an in-vitro assay and reagent developing company, in 2016, around 20% to 36% cell lines used by scientists for research purposes were contaminated or misidentified, which also involves HeLa cells, which was first cultured in 1950 for cancerous cervical cells.
