Biotech total market value amounted to $369.62B in 2016 and, according to a research conducted by Global Market Insight, Biotech market is expected to exceed $775.2B by 2024.

Its annual grow rate – equal to 9.9% - is justified by the increase of  chronic deseases and the consequential demand for new technology useful to eradicate cancer, cardiovascular and other deseases. At the same time Biotech increase is encouraged by inadequate agricultural land, water scarcity, growing demand for agricultural food products in countries like US and China and also by lack of non-renewable resources. Actually, Biotech industry is divided into four branches: bioagriculture, bioservices, bioindustrial and biopharmacy and each branch try to find a solution to these problems.
