report has been added to's

The global plant cell culture equipment market size is estimated to
reach USD 1.05 billion by 2025.

The global market is estimated to register a CAGR of 13.1% during the
forecast years. The demand for transgenic crops has been rising owing to
various benefits offered by these crops, such as improvement in the
yield, productivity, and quality and development of insect-resistant
cultivars in crops. Transgenic plants are the ones whose genomes are
modified using genetic engineering processes in order to introduce more
species or new traits to the plant. Inserting a combination of genes in
a plant makes the plant more productive.

Transgenic plants are also produced to cater to specific needs of the
pharmaceutical sector. Emergence of various genetic engineering
processes is expected to drive the market over the forecast period.
Plant cell culture systems are a potential renewable source of valuable
medicinal compounds, colorants, fragrances, and flavors which are
difficult to reproduce by chemical synthesis or microbial cells. Plant
cell culture technology enables the development of agricultural crops
that offer both higher yield and more resistance to pathogens and
adverse environmental conditions. Moreover, this technology could be
used in providing a reliable and continuous source of plant

Plant cell culture can be used as an alternative to the cultivation or
collection of plants. The number of natural products isolated using
plant cell cultures is huge and is increasing gradually. On a large
scale, unlike the culture of microorganisms, the cells are cultured in a
fermenter. The fermentation process offers certain advantages over the
collection of plant material or field cultivation for the isolation of
high-value chemicals. These advantages include continuous supply of
plants as raw material and production of entirely new compounds and
plant cells under controlled conditions.

Key market participants include Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc. (U.S.);
Tecan Group Ltd. (Switzerland); LGC Limited (London); LabRepCo, Inc.
(U.S.); Geneq, Inc. (Canada); and Conviron (Canada).
