Microbes Market and Microbial Products Reviewed in New Research Report at

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) August 08, 2013

This report addresses the global market for microbes and microbial products used in commercial applications during the period from 2012 through 2018. These applications include agricultural, healthcare, manufacturing, energy and environmental applications. Viruses are sometimes classified as microbes, but this report excludes them because they are non-living.

The format of this study includes the following major elements:
summary, definitions, description of microbes, end users and applications of microbes, regulation, recent technological developments, market size and segmentation, 2012 to 2018, company profiles and key patents.

A microbe is a minute living organism, such as a bacterium, yeast, or fungus. The first commercial applications of microbes date back to around 1750 BC, when the ancient Sumerians used yeast to brew beer. Microbes were used for centuries to produce bread, wine, vinegar and other common products—without anyone knowing the scientific basis for the ingredient.

The systematic study ( of microbes began in the 17th century with the work of scientists like Antonie Van Leeuwenhoek and Robert Hooke. However, the discipline known today as microbiology was not established until the late 19th century through the work of pioneers like Louis Pasteur, Robert Koch, Martinus Beijerinck and Sergei Winogradsky.

The technology related to microbial production of metabolites such as ethanol, lactic acid, butanol, riboflavin, etc. and enzymes such as protease, amylase and invertase were developed as early as the first few decades of the 20th century. Large-scale production of the antibiotic penicillin from Penicillium fungi was perfected during World War II and the microbial production of other antibiotics, amino acids, nucleotides, enzymes and such soon followed.

Today, genetically engineered microbes are used for the commercial production of nonmicrobial products such as insulin, interferon, human growth hormone and viral vaccines. Microbes are also used to produce energy (e.g., biodiesel and bioethanol) and to clean up environmental pollutants such as sewage and oil spills. As the active ingredient in biofertilizers and biopesticides, microbes contribute to increasing agricultural productivity, and microbes form the basis of cost-effective methods of mining and metallurgy.

Goals and Objectives
Yet all this seems to be only the beginning: The commercial possibilities of microbes are seemingly endless. However, intuition alone tells us that not all of these technological possibilities are likely to become commercial realities.

This report is an update of an earlier BCC Research report published in 2011. Its goal is to survey microbial applications in a wide range of fields based on the most recent data, identify the applications that appear to have significant commercial potential in the near- to mid-term and to develop quantitative estimates of their current and/or future sales.

The updated report’s specific objectives support this broad goal. These objectives include identifying microbial technologies and applications that have the greatest commercial potential in the 2013 through 2018 time frame, identifying market drivers, evaluating obstacles to their successful commercialization, and projecting future sales of each application.
