2012 Cell Culture Life Science Dashboard™ Series 4 (North America/Europe)

  • ID: 2387270
  • Report
  • September 2012
  • Region: North America, Europe
  • 158 Pages

The growth and propagation of mammalian cells in culture is a routine but critical precursor to the investigation of such fundamental cellular processes as gene expression and protein function and to the development of therapeutics. Cell culture products are widely used not only by scientists working with traditional cell lines but also by researchers engaged in experiments with such emerging model systems as stem cells and engineered cell lines.

This Cell Culture Dashboard was developed based upon the aggregated responses to a 21-question survey completed by 487 scientists actively engaged in mammalian cell culture predominantly located in North America and Europe. This Dashboard reveals key market indicators for the research market for cell culture products as a whole as well as for the following product segments:

  • Basal media
  • Fetal bovine serum
  • Animal sera
  • Balanced salt solutions
  • Serum free media
  • Dry powdered media
  • Growth and attachment factors
  • Stem cell culture reagents

The publisher's 2012 Cell Culture Dashboard™, the fourth in a series of reports, examines the characteristics and dynamics of the market for cell culture products. This 2012 Dashboard provides a snapshot of the current market landscape that has been compared with data from the 2010 and 2008 Cell Culture Dashboards, providing an ongoing story of how the market is adapting to new products, new competitors, new cell culture methods, and new sales and marketing strategies.

Survey Methodology

In June of 2012, the publisher fielded the Mammalian Cell Culture Survey to a subset of the company’s panel of more than 60,000 life scientists. Individuals were invited by e-mail blast to click through to a webpage at perceptabioanalytix.com where the survey was hosted. Invitations were delivered on June 20, 2012, and results collected through June 25, 2012. A total of 514 scientists participated in the survey, of which 487 are actively engaged in performing mammalian cell culture and 9 plan to culture mammalian cells in the next 12 months. Results based on the aggregate of collected responses are revealed in this Cell Culture Dashboard.

Important Note: This report only includes analyses related to the research market for cell culture products and not the market for products used in bioproduction or pharmaceutical manufacturing.

Respondent Demographics

Respondents from the academic, government and commercial market segments are well represented. 62.5% of respondents are employed in an academic setting, of which 51.8% of respondents work at universities, colleges, or medical schools, 7.2% are employed at hospitals or medical centers, and 3.5% in private research institutes. 4.9% of respondents work for a government organization. 17.1% of respondents work for biotechnology companies, while 10.7% are employed by pharmaceutical companies. Overall, 31.1% of respondents work in industrial laboratories.

66.1% of respondents are from North America (60.7% in the United States and 5.4% in Canada); while 32.9% reside in Europe.

Junior (Lab Tech, Grad Students, Post-Doctoral Fellow), mid-level (Department Manager, Project Manager, Scientist, Core Manager, Professor, Instructor, Lab Manager) and senior (PI, Group Leader, Lab Director, Senior Scientist, CEO) scientists are well represented in the data set, with the most cited job titles being Post-doctoral or Research Fellow (15.8% of respondents) and Scientist (13.0%).

A wide variety of scientific areas of specialization is also evident, led by cell biology (indicated by 23.5% of respondents as their primary area of expertise), biochemistry (12.6%), microbiology / infectious disease/virology (11.1%), immunology (8.6%), and drug discovery (8.2%).

Small (1 to 5 scientists), medium (6 to 10 scientists) and large (>10 scientists) laboratories are well represented. A total of 51.8% of respondents are from laboratories where between 1 and 5 scientists perform cell culture. 25.1% of respondents work in labs where between 6 and 10 people culture mammalian cells, while 20.5% are from labs where more than 10 people perform this technique.
