Biotechnology - Endless Scope, Endless Hope

Imagine if we could cure cancer by exploiting the bacteria in the guts! Imagine if we can predict and even prevent a heart attack! Though scientists are already exploring such methods using biotechnology solutions with an aim to bring a revolution in the healthcare ecosystem, we still have just scratched the surface of the potential that biotechnology holds. The global biotechnology market size is expected to reach $727.1 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 7.4 percent, reported Grand View Research. This growth will be majorly pushed by regenerative medicine and genetics in diagnostics.

Solutions like genetic engineering or genetic hacking could possibly include human enhancement to alter a particular trait of one's physical body and treat the currently incurable disorders. On the other hand, using food engineering, the industry can replace meat and dairy industries by creating food using cutting edge technologies to reduce the colossal damage we do to the environment. These are just few examples of how biotechnology can be used to better human and earth life. There are many such examples and usage of biotechnology that holds the power to alter the present scene.
