Market Insights and Analyst View:

Microcarriers are used in a variety of applications, from cell culture to drug delivery. They are employed to stimulate the growth of cells in culture media by providing a larger surface area for cell attachment. They can be used in applications such as vaccine production, biopharmaceuticals, and stem cell research. The microcarrier market's growth is attributed to the growing demand for cell-based vaccines and therapeutics, the rising incidence of various diseases and disorders like diabetes, cancer, hemophilia, rheumatoid arthritis, and others, huge investments for the development of innovative therapies, and consistent technological advancements in cell biology research.

Companies operating in the microcarriers market are focusing on strategic developments such as collaborations, expansions, agreements, partnerships, and new product launches, which help them improve their sales, expand their geographic reach, and enhance their capacities to cater to a larger than existing customer base. For instance, in October 2023, Kuraray Co., Ltd. developed PVA hydrogel microcarriers for cell cultures used in regenerative medicine. The product is scheduled for launch in January 2024 in Japan and overseas, beginning in the US.

Growth Drivers:

Need for Cell Therapies with Rising Incidence of Cancer and Infectious Diseases

World Health Organization (WHO) states that the global burden of cancer is estimated to rise to 27.5 million new cases and 16.3 million mortalities by 2040. The American Cancer Society projected 1,918,030 new cancer cases and 609,360 related deaths in the US for the year 2022, including nearly 350 deaths/day from lung cancer, which is a major cause of cancer mortality. According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, there were more than 324,000 hospitalizations for infectious diseases, and more than 4,700 hospitalizations due to COVID-19 infection in Australia in 2020–2021. Further, a total of 1.6 million people died from tuberculosis (TB) in 2021 (including 187,000 people with HIV). TB ranks 13th in the leading causes of mortality and 2nd among the major causes of deaths due to infectious diseases worldwide, after COVID-19 (above HIV and AIDS).

The increasing incidence of diseases where cell therapy can be effectively applied, such as cancers, urinary problems, autoimmune diseases, and infectious diseases, is associated with the growth of the microcarriers market. Microcarriers are small spheres or particles (typically 90–300 µm in diameter) used for culturing adherent cells in stirred-tank bioreactors. With the growing incidence of cancer and various infectious diseases, the need for proper medication and vaccines arises, which favors the microcarriers market growth.
