The biotechnology market is expected to show substantial growth over the forecast period, owing to government support offered to various biotechnology companies.

Outsourcing of clinical trials, contract manufacturing, and drug discovery have emerged as a key trend, leading to the growth of the bioservices industry in the developing economies of India, Thailand, Malaysia, and China. The developing countries provide superior research and trial facility at lower cost.

North America dominated the global market, accounting for over 42% of the overall biotechnology revenue in 2011.
