Biopreservation is a technique used for the storage of cells and tissues in a hypothermic or chemical environment to preserve biological samples with sustained integrity. Cryopreservation, vitrification and hypothermic storage are the common biopreservation procedures used widely in laboratory and clinical settings. The increase in cell-banking systems like adult stem cell banking, tissue banking, and umbilical cord blood banking has led to an increase in demand for the concept of biopreservation. Antibodies and proteins obtained from high-yielding cell-lines are required by biotech and pharmaceutical companies for research, diagnostic or clinical purposes. These high-yielding cell lines need to be preserved to give optimum yield, viability and productivity.
The global biobank (biospecimen/ biorepository/biopreservation) market for equipment and media is broadly categorized into two segments, namely, biopreservation media market, and biopreservation equipment market. These markets are dominated by the U.S. in 2012, followed by Europe, Asia, and Rest of the World (RoW), due to government investments and tremendous research activities in this geographical region.
The global biobank (biospecimen/ biorepository/biopreservation) market for equipment and media witnesses high competitive intensity. Segment rivalry is high, as there are a few big firms and many small firms with similar product offerings. The firms operating in the market fight to garner market share, leading to frequent price wars, advertising battles, incessant launch of new products, and increased customer services & warranties.
