Filter Integrity Test Market Size, Share, Trends, Growth, Production, Consumption, Revenue, Company Analysis and Forecast 2021-2028

The global Filter Integrity Test market size is expected to be worth around US$ 82.40 million by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Filter Integrity Test market size was valued at US$ 58.88 million in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 4.35% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.

Growth Factors

The introduction of stringent regulations pertaining to the evaluation of the integrity of filter products has driven the adoption of filter integrity test systems within biopharmaceutical, food & beverages, and other end-use settings. The tests are highly adopted by the aforementioned end-users to ensure the structural integrity of a sterilizing filter in order to meet all regulatory requirements as well as manufacturer’s specifications, which in turn, has spurred the revenue generation in this market.

The availability of fully automated testing systems has provided emerging key players with lucrative growth avenues. Automated systems are portable and easy-to-use and provide reliable data, thereby enable in saving time as well as reducing labor and other handling costs. Furthermore, advancements such as the touch screen user interface simplify the test process and accelerate the testing capabilities.

Report Highlights

Bubble point test serves as a simple, cost-effective, and non-destructive method, which can be applied to any filter at any time without the risk of contamination. These factors have resulted in its extensive application in the pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing workflows, thereby accounting for the maximum revenue share in 2020.

However, the bubble point test is based on a visual assessment of the bubbling rate, which can be affected by the diffusive gas flows. To combat this, the pressure hold test is recommended as an alternative to the bubble point test that has attributed to its projected growth rate for the forecast period. Therefore, this method is highly applicable to filter integrity testing in radiopharmaceuticals manufacturing.

Automated systems captured the largest revenue share in 2020 because automated testing is not affected by downstream interventions, manages the track record, eliminates the operator errors, and allows multiple validations. The automated system also facilitates the post-sterilization integrity tests without causing downstream contamination.

The availability of a substantial number of automated filter integrity tests in the market and constant improvements in the design of these systems have boosted the segment revenue. Furthermore, the high usage of automated instruments in industrial settings for the measurement of flow rate on the upstream side of the filter has also benefitted the segment in the past years.

On the other hand, manual testing systems accounted for the low penetration with respect to revenue share, yet it is expected to grow at a considerable pace throughout the forecast period. The small and mid-sized end-users usually adopt manual testing systems. Factors attributive for the adoption of these systems include simple designing and direct measurement or observation of gas flow.

Liquid filter integrity tests have accounted for the largest revenue share in 2020 owing to the high usage of hydrophilic filters, particularly for aqueous solutions. High penetration of forward flow (diffusion) test and bubble point test has resulted in the dominance of this segment. Furthermore, a liquid filtration system offers numerous advantages such as reduce process downtime, reduce waste disposal costs, and minimize maintenance time along with the expense. Thus, high usage of liquid filtration test has positively impacted its adoption.

Air filter integrity test is expected to witness the fastest growth rate during the forecast period due to an increase in the adoption rate of hydrophobic membrane for gas filtration. Moreover, high usage of automated test instruments, such as Integritest Exacta and Sartocheck 3, which incorporate several options for water-based testing of hydrophobic filters, result in rise in revenue generation from this segment.  

Driven by the high demand for biopharmaceuticals, usage of filter integrity testing is maximum in biopharmaceutical & pharmaceutical industries. Biopharma manufacturers are engaged in boosting their organic revenue through the establishment of new facilities or capacity expansion projects, both resulting in an increase in the use of single-use filtration technologies.

Moreover, currently, a substantial number of conventional pharmaceutical firms have shifted towards developing and due to technological advances in bioprocessing technology. These factors have resulted in the higher penetration of filter integrity tests in this end-use segment.

With government regulations becoming more stringent towards the standardization of food products, the food & beverage industry is anticipated to emerge as the lucrative source of revenue. Implementation of advanced microfiltration technology ensures aseptic production and packaging of perishable food products. Thus, with the expanding use of filtration systems in this segment, the implementation of filter integrity tests is anticipated to expand.

North America held the largest revenue share in 2020. A substantial number of biopharmaceutical manufacturers in the U.S. have attributed to the estimated share of North America. Furthermore, key OEMs are engaged in partnerships with biopharmaceutical manufacturers to accelerate the industrialization of their disposable filtration businesses.

The presence of global suppliers that provide services in the U.S. has boosted revenue growth. For example, Provantage Validation Specialists, is a service provided by Europe-based company EMD Millipore for product and water integrity testing of filters. Validation and testing services are provided by the company in the U.S.
