The global Downstream Processing market size is expected to be worth around US$ 79.6 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Downstream Processing market size was valued at US$ 21.4 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 15.9% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

The capacity requirements during the development of biologic drugs have changed over the past few years, wherein the demand for manufacturing high-volume products has shifted to developing small-volume, high potency products. This creates new avenues for single-use technologies.

As adoption of small-scale, single-use systems for process development and downstream processing is already high, evolutionary changes are expected in the area of single-use technologies for manufacturing small-volume, highly potent drugs. The development of novel film chemistries, closed systems, automation in clinical-scale single-use systems, and smart sensors are some noteworthy advancements in the field.

A rise in applications of downstream processing for the manufacture of biopharmaceuticals is expected to bring growth opportunities to the market. This has also led to an increase in strategic deals and development in the market. For instance, in February 2021, Evozyne, LLC collaborated with a leading rare disorders drug manufacturer for the manufacture and marketing of novel biopharmaceuticals for immune modulation.

Report Highlights

The chromatography systems segment dominated the market for downstream processing and accounted for the largest revenue share of 40.6% in 2020. Continuous R&D to improve the efficiency and speed of chromatography systems is anticipated to propel the segment growth. In December 2020, Bolt Biotherapeutics conducted chromatography modeling using GoSilico ChromX simulation software to accelerate bioprocessing.

A rise in the deals and developments pertaining to chromatography systems also facilitates segment growth. For instance, in January 2021, Sartorius Stedim Biotech announced to acquire the chromatography equipment business from Novasep. This will assist Sartorius to develop novel chromatography systems which in turn will overcome efficiency issues and bottlenecks in downstream processing.

The filters segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR from 2021 to 2028. The rise in the utility of filters for viral inactivation is the key factor driving this market for downstream processing. In September 2020, a team of researchers from Pennsylvania State University analyzed the efficiency of BioEX hollow fiber and Planova 20N virus filters for the removal of viral-size particles. Such studies are anticipated to increase the adoption rate of filters for downstream processing of biologics.

The production segment dominated the market for downstream processing and generated the largest revenue share of 32.9% in 2020 owing to the wide applications of antibiotics for the treatment of several disorders. More than 700,000 people die of antibiotic-resistant bacteria annually. This leads to high demand for the development of antibiotics which, in turn, propels the market growth.

Antibodies production grew at the fastest rate owing to the rise in demand for. The launch of novel products for efficient purification of antibodies also propels segment growth. For instance, in January 2021, Cytiva launched HiScreen Fibro PrismA for process development and purification of monoclonal antibody (mAb). The product features a fiber-based Protein A platform which enables a 20-fold increase in productivity.

The purification by chromatography segment dominated the downstream processing market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 40.9% in 2020. Single-use chromatography and filtration systems are considered the gold standards in downstream bioprocessing, hence companies are engaging in business development strategies such as acquisition, merger, and agreement for expanding their chromatography portfolio.

For instance, in October 2020, Repligen Corporation entered into a definitive agreement for the acquisition of ARTeSYN Biosolutions. ARTeSYN Biosolutions is an established provider of single-use filtration and chromatography systems. The company also offers a wide product range of single-use systems for continuous manufacturing, and media/buffer preparation workflows.

Similarly, in April 2020, Sartorius AG acquired Danaher Corporation’s chromatography hardware and resins, particle validation standards and microcarriers, and single-use tangential flow filtration business. This acquisition will help the company to expand its downstream processing offerings for chromatography systems.

Solid-liquid separation is expected to witness the highest CAGR of 16.9% during the forecast period. There are several advantages of solid-liquid separation such as it is simple, cost-effective, and well suited for continuous mode manufacturing. However, high shear forces generated is a common hurdle with this technique. Therefore, to cope up with such problems, recent developments such as depth filters include multistage depth filtration, alternating tangential flow microfiltration, and tangential flow filtration methods are increasingly adopted for high cell density processes.

North America dominated the market for downstream processing with the largest revenue share of 34.6% in 2020 owing to government support for promoting bioprocess technologies, rising medical expenditure, and developed healthcare infrastructure. In addition, the region has witnessed major collaborative activities with healthcare giants that are extensively investing in the R&D of biopharmaceuticals and vaccines.

In addition, key players operating in the market for downstream processing are expanding their foothold in this region. For instance, in December 2020, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announced further expansion in Europe and North America for the commercial manufacturing of medicines, vaccines, and therapies. The expansion added 15 development and cGMP commercial production lines, leveraging the company’s robust quality standards for supporting a range of manufacturing capabilities.

In Asia Pacific, the market for downstream processing is expected to register the highest growth rate of 17.3% due to the rising investments by developers and consumers in the field of biotechnology. The presence of a large population base is driving the need for advanced medical facilities for which players are keen on implementing rapid analytical methods to support in-process designing and bioprocessing.

China dominated the market share in the Asia Pacific owing to the growing biopharmaceutical industry and increasing demand for medicines and vaccines. The biopharmaceutical industry is amongst the most active economic sectors in China and is marked with continuous revolution with modern biopharmaceutical equipment and process.
