Sensing huge potentials in the field of biotechnology huge number of students are now queuing up in front of educational institutes to get admitted for biotechnology course. It is primarily a research based subject that deals with varied industry sectors including health and medicine, agriculture and animal husbandry, cropping management, cell biology, ecology, soil conservation science, physiology of plants, biostatistics, seed technology and other related fields of operation.

The following are the factors that are responsible for increasing career scope for biotechnologists.


Factors for the growth of Biotechnology in India

  • Occupying about 2.4% of total global land, India has a wide variety of flora and fauna. Studies have revealed that India has about 7.6% of total mammal species, 12.6% of bird species, 11% of fish and approximately 6% of the total flowering plants of the world.
  • Multinational companies find India to be quite convenient place for conducting successful field research works because of the nation's varied biodiversity, being one of the largest agro based countries and multiple climatic zones.
  • India has a biotech market due to its high population rate. Within the next decade the consumption of the biotech products is expected to be increasing by four times of the present. The human needs and animal care market is studied to be growing by at least 20%.
  • India has enough manpower, which is accounted to be an asset for this knowledge based Industry
  • India has already proved high competency level in new fields of biotechnology like bioprocess engineering, manipulation of genes in microbes and animal cells, down stream processing and methods of isolation and recombinant DNA technology of animals and plants.
