On the basis of type, the APIs segment garnered highest biotech ingredients market share in 2020, owing to increase in use of generic medicines in the wake of pandemic, especially herbal immunity boosters. The APIs segment garnered the highest market share for year 2020 owing to increased use of generic medicines in the wake of pandemic especially herbal immunity boosters. However, biosimilars are expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. This is owed to the fact that they are used abundantly as both finished as well as raw material for many generics as well as patent medicines and other products.
Biosimilars is projected as the most lucrative segment.
Biotech Ingredients Market, by Product
Depending on product, the monoclonal antibodies segment dominated the biotech ingredients market share for 2020, owing to growing demand for organic and herbal medicines for various diseases. However, hormones & growth factors segment is projected to grow at higher CAGR during the forecast period. this can be attributed to owing to increasing health and hormonal problems that arise from current lifestyles.
Hormones and Growth Factors Ingredients are projected as the most lucrative segment.
Biotech Ingredients Market, by Expression Systems
On the basis of expression systems, the microbial expression systems segment dominated the market share in 2020 owing to low cost of production and simple procedure. However, mammalian expression systems segment is expected to grow at faster pace during the forecast period owing to use in production of antibodies and therapeutic proteins.
By Expression Systems
Mammalian Expression Systems are projected as the most lucrative segment.
Biotech Ingredients Market, by Region
By region, the biotech ingredient market analysis is done across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Europe region dominated the market in 2020 on account of large consumer base, end-use sectors, and favorable support from government. Asia-Pacific is expected to grow fastest forecast period owing to presence of large bio-pharmaceutical companies in the countries such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea. In-addition the region also has a rich history of using herbal medicines that also adds to its rich expertise in the biotech ingredients.
Asia-Pacific is projected as the most lucrative market.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic had led to partial or complete shutdown of production facilities, which do not come under essential goods, owing to prolonged lockdown in major countries such as the U.S., China, Japan, India, and Germany. It has led to either closure or suspension of their production activities in most industrial units across the globe. Furthermore, the global economy was deeply impacted by implementation of lockdown, as many activities came to halt. The biotech ingredients market saw a decline in its growth as the pandemic progressed. This can be attributed to the fact that research and development activities were halted as funds were being directed for sustaining economic unrest by many players. Moreover, supply demand chain for raw materials was disrupted that only added to already scarce availability pertaining in the market.

According to the insights from CXOs, the biotech ingredients market is highly fragmented in nature. Biotech ingredients are substances made from biologically copying DNA or engineering similar compounds that offer several benefits. This is also marked with significant shift experienced in consumers opting for biotech ingredient-based products instead of synthetic ingredients harmful for human as well as environment. The market is still at a stage where research and development activities are still large part of the industry’s growth. Market players are continuously engaged in launching new products with increased application of biotech ingredients. Moreover, demand from food & beverages, personal care, and health supplements industries act as growth drivers for the industry. In addition, production process for the same is costly and have high complexities. This leads to low availability of raw materials, which restrains the biotech ingredients market growth.
