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 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). As the current pandemic situation, has caused the most significant impact in peoples life all over the world, the importance of studying Biotechnology and job opportunities in this sector is ever growing making it the most suitable career choice for young individuals.
