CAREER PROSPECTS

Biotechnology is a product-based industry and not a service industry. Biotechnologist will be working with DNA, tissues, bacteria, virus, and complex proteins. Depending specialization and/or expertise, someone will be working as a medical biotechnologist, pharmaceutical biotechnologist, agricultural biotechnologist, food biotechnologist, environmental biotechnologist or industrial biotechnologist etc.

The Global biotechnology market size was valued at over $330.3 billion in 2015, and is expected more than double to $775.2 billion by 2024, at a compound annual growth rate of 9.9 percent.

The biotechnology segment is the fastest growing segment in India. It is valued about $11 billion currently and it will touch the $ 100 billion mark by 2025 as per the forecast of the Association of Biotechnology Led Enterprises (ABLE). Furthermore, the biotech industry is expected to grow at 30% growth rate every year (according to Make in India website).

Top Ten Indian Biotech Giants,

Biocon, Bangalore Serum Institute of India, Pune Panacea Biotec Limited, Hyderabad Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Limited, Hyderabad Wockhardt, Mumbai GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals Limited Bharat Serums and Vaccines Limited, Mumbai Novozymes, Mumbai Indian Immunologicals Limited, Hyderabad Shantha Biotechnics Limited, Hyderabad

Graduates can also opt for alternative career options like, Medical Writing (Technical Copy Writing), Scientific Journalism, Healthcare Informatics, Data Science & Big Data Analytics, Product Marketing & Management, Technical Sales, FAS & Business Development, Market Research & Consulting, Intellectual Property & Patent Law and Entrepreneurship.
