Market Insights

Increasing Demand for Transgenic Plants Bolsters Plant Tissue Culture Market Growth

Transgenic plants are those plants whose DNA is modified using genetic engineering techniques to introduce a new trait to the plant that does not occur naturally. These transgenic plants are generated using genetic engineering techniques in the laboratory by altering the genetic makeup, usually by adding one or more genes to a plant's genome. Transgenic plants are mainly developed to provide the necessary nutrients and cope with the food demand worldwide.

Millions of people suffer from malnutrition, which is more prevalent in developing and under-developed countries. According to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2019, approximately 462 million people were underweight. According to UNICEF, nearly half of all the deaths in children under five are attributed to undernutrition. Moreover, in 2020, about 45.4 million children under the age of five were wasted, and about 13.6 million out of these were severely wasted. According to Global Change Data Lab, in 2019, 8.9% of the world’s population was undernourished. Undernourished people are those who have calorie intake below minimum energy requirements. Researchers are focusing on developing transgenic plants that provide the required calories to meet these calorie requirements. The demand for transgenic plants is fueling the growth of the plant tissue culture market.

In many countries, COVID-19 had limited the mobility of people across borders and lockdowns had contributed to labour shortages for agricultural sectors, particularly those characterized by periods of peak seasonal labour demand or labour-intensive production. For example, travel bans within the European Union, as well as the shutting down of the Schengen Area, have significantly reduced the available workforce for the fruit and vegetable sector in a many of the European countries. Shortage of labour had lead to production losses and shortages in the market. The COVID-19 emergency had impaired the logistics, distribution and supply chains of horticultural products. This created food insecurity, due to breaks in the agricultural products supply chain and, consequently, large part of the population faced difficulty in accessing fresh food at reasonable prices Such aforementioned factors had a serious impact on the overall plant tissue culture industry.  

In 2022, North America held the largest share of the plant tissue culture market. The market growth in this region is attributed to a rise in research and development activities in the field of tissue culture. Moreover, Asia Pacific is expected to register the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. China, Japan, and India are the major contributors to the plant tissue culture market is this region. The market growth in APAC is attributed to increasing government investments in promoting tissue culture-based research, rising scales of adoption of advanced technologies, and improvements in infrastructure supporting the tissue culture laboratories.

By geography, the plant tissue culture market is segmented into North America (US, Canada, and Mexico), Europe (UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the Rest of Europe), Asia Pacific (China, Japan, India, South Korea, Australia, Rest of Asia Pacific), the Middle East & Africa (UAE, Saudi Arabia, Africa, and the Rest of Middle East & Africa), and South & Central America (Brazil, Argentina, and the Rest of South & Central America).
