Impact of covid-19 on Biopreservation Market

Biopreservation Market Analysis:

Biopreservation is the process or technique which helps in preserving biospecimens such as cells, DNA, saliva, and plasma. Biopreservation keeps the biospecimens intact and protects them from getting damaged outside their natural environment for a longer time. long-term storage capabilities increase the efficiency of the preservation process. Biopreservation is utilized in multiple healthcare institutes and setups for retaining the functionality and integrity of various clinical trial materials, eggs, sperm, embryos, and others. The biopreservation process ensures the purity and stability of biospecimens and increases shelf life as well. Medical researches related to personalized medicine and genomics research is widely using biobanking, a type of biopreservation. Growing applications and demand owing to various benefits have facilitated the market growth.

Rising prevalence of chronic diseases, development of regenerative medicine, and growing biospecimen testing are the major factors driving the market growth

One of the major factors driving the market growth is the rising prevalence of chronic diseases and obesity across the globe. Growing patients of chronic diseases like diabetes, cardiac, degenerative conditions affecting the joints, nerves, bones, and others are increasing demand for biopreservation. As per an updated report from the World Health Organization (WHO) from September 2019, more than 17 million people die annually due to cardiovascular diseases, making it the number one cause of deaths worldwide. Another report from WHO from April 2020 states that approximately 1.9 billion adults are overweight across the globe, of which 650 million adults fall under the obese category. Chronic diseases have been rising significantly over the past decade. Growth in the number of patients has led to a major strain on the healthcare sector to use better biospecimen preserving techniques. This has led to major adoption and usage of biopreservation techniques and has facilitated market growth. Further, a major shortage of donors for the purpose of transplantation has increased the global demand for regenerative medicines. Regenerative medicines are used for controlling and treating multiple chronic diseases and degenerative conditions. Regenerative medicines extensively require biopreservation technique to keep the integrity and functionality intact. Growing usage of regenerative medicines has directly helped the demand for biopreservation to grow exponentially. Also, growing testing by the general population owing to multiple health conditions has increased the strain on the healthcare sector to preserve biospecimens. The growing load of preservation has directly increased the demand for biopreservation techniques.

High costs involved in biopreservation, stability issues, and development of cheaper techniques are restraining the market growth

Biopreservation is an advanced preservation technique and usually requires high costs owing to costly processes and equipment used during the preservation process. Biopreservation further has major stability issues with occurrences of tissue injuries during thawing and freezing. Also, with the development of cheap and cost-effective preservation techniques such as room temperature preservation processes will hamper the market growth.

Increasing investments in R&D of new drugs, growing bio-banks, and government initiatives to create lucrative market opportunities

There have been major investments by public and private organizations towards research and development activities related to the development of new drugs, which could potentially help fight the growing cases of chronic diseases. The major surge in investments is aimed at providing access to advanced products and quality healthcare that includes biopreservation facilities. The rising number of biobanks, which preserve biospecimens specifically has created massive growth opportunities for the biopreservation market. Governments across the globe are taking multiple initiatives to support cell therapies in the treatment of various diseases. Government healthcare initiatives are providing grants, contracts, and funds for research work, which has led to increased expenditure in R&D activities by organizations. This has facilitated significant growth in the biopreservation technology and also has led to wider adoption of advanced bio-preservation techniques. These advancements include the formulation of next-generation cryopreservation techniques, hypothermic storage processes, and integrate and design nanoscale technologies. All these factors are majorly increasing the demand for biopreservation techniques and creating lucrative market opportunities.
