Microcarriers are beneficial as a support matrix for the growth of adherent cells. These microcarriers are placed in a bioreactor to help proliferate the growth of cells. Microcarrier dry powder, related equipment are in greater demand by the pharmaceutical companies as well as research institutes to carry out rigorous R&D activities. Growing burden of disease worldwide has boosted the R&D activities with an aim to provide therapeutically effective drugs/vaccines resulting in demand for microcarrier products. Thus, owing to the above mentioned factors, microcarrier market is expected to witness a strong growth during the forecast period.

The major factor driving the global microcarrier market is the growing need for therapeutically efficient vaccines and drugs have led to the increase in the product demand for microcarrier. This is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period.

However, as cell culture requires extensive R&D investment for products such as reagents, media, cells lines etc., to yield accurate results. Availability of lesser budget to the academic & research institutes or companies results in lower adoption of cell culture product. This is expected to hinder the market growth.
