Microcarriers Market Regional Analysis

The market has been segmented, by region, into the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and the Middle East & Africa (MEA).

Geographically, the Americas is expected to dominate the global microcarriers market owing to the alarming cases of cancer and other chronic diseases, growing investments by venture capital firms, and a well-developed healthcare sector. According to data published by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), close to 1,633,390 new cases of cancer were reported in the year 2015, and 595,919 people died of cancer in the U.S. in the same year. Favorable reimbursement packages can facilitate market growth in the region.

Europe is expected to hold the second largest position in the global microcarriers market. The market growth can be attributed to the availability of funds for research, approval of cell culture, and establishment of facilities of biopharmaceutical companies in the region.

APAC is anticipated to showcase the fastest growth in the market due to the presence of a huge patient population, rising demand for cell-based vaccines, and availability of grants and funds for cell-based research. Development in microcarriers for effective patient management can drive the regional microcarriers market growth.

On the other hand, the Middle East and Africa had the lowest market share.
