The R&D industry has always required substantial capital investment due to the lengthy research and regulatory procedures involved. Governments recognize the significance of R&D as a crucial investment for their country's prosperity, international competitiveness, and public welfare. Consequently, R&D funding and investment have consistently grown over the years. In the life sciences industry, R&D investment rose by 22% from 2018 to 2019.

Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies allocate significant resources to research in order to develop groundbreaking compounds to meet the growing demands of the healthcare sector and address emerging diseases. The pharmaceutical R&D sector worldwide accounts for more than 80% of the total R&D investment in the life sciences industry.


Synthetic biology poses a significant biosafety risk due to the deliberate or accidental introduction of artificial organisms into the environment during research and other applications.

Such introduction of synthetic bacteria could result in mutations or interactions with other species, leading to crossbreeding and biological errors, which may pose a threat to the natural habitat. Additionally, the emergence of antibiotic-resistant superbugs is another crucial biosafety concern. To address this issue, the European Union (EU) has funded various research initiatives on the environmental consequences of genetically modified bacteria released intentionally for plant growth or bioremediation.


The medical applications category is anticipated to exhibit the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR). This can be attributed to the ample corporate and government funding available for the advancement of innovative remedies, coupled with extensive research into improved and novel therapies, which are the primary factors propelling the growth of this segment.
