Increasing investment in the R&D by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies is another major factor supporting the growth of the sector. Technological advancements in filtration products is also expected to propel their adoption in manufacturing and research of biopharmaceuticals and other drugs. The technological advanced filters including membrane, pre-filters & depth media, and cartridges & capsules filters provide high reliability and efficiency during drug manufacturing process.

Report Highlights

In the product segment, membrane filters held the largest market share in 2020, owing to versatile usage in a wide range of applications such as ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, microfiltration, and cross-flow filtration. Since these membrane filters are used in a large number of applications they are also expected to substantially continue to gain market share during the forecast period.

The membrane filters segment is projected to witness growth at the fastest CAGR during the study period because of the rapid development of drugs and biologics companies. These companies are undergoing collaborations and partnerships to gain maximum share in the market. For instance, in June 2020, Novartis and Xencor Inc. entered into a strategic collaboration where Novartis received rights to develop T-cell-engaging bispecific antibodies intended for acute myeloid leukemia and B-cell malignancies treatment.

The membrane filters are widely used in the development and manufacturing processes including sterile filtration and end-stage processes. Thus, with the increase in the incidence of viral and chronic diseases such as anthrax, measles, influenza, tuberculosis, and chickenpox, the demand for advanced drugs and vaccines is expected to accelerate rapidly in the near future. According to CDC, around 5 to 20 percent of the population in the U.S. get infected with flu annually.

The single-use systems segment is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. These systems provide several advantages including reduced risk of contamination, minimizes operation time, and provides ease of convenience. Thus the demand for single-use systems is expected to rise in the near future. They are also compact in nature and take up less amount of space in the factory settings. For instance, Allegro MVP Single-Use System developed by Pall Corporation can be used across various applications like sterile filtration, depth filtration, virus inactivation, media, and buffer preparation.

The microfiltration technique was the highest revenue-generating segment in the year 2020. Product advancement is one of the key driving factors for the segment. For instance, in 2020, Merck KGaA launched a novel Viresolve Pro Shield H that is intended especially for the elimination of parvoviruses from therapeutic protein feed streams. This technique is extensively used by manufacturers for the separation of large particles including proteins and yeast from a liquid feed stream.

Ultrafiltration segment is estimated to grow at lucrative growth due to varied applications of this technique in protein purification, vaccines, and antibody processes. The manufacturers are highly focused on delivering the exact needs of filtration processes in the healthcare industry. For instance, in January 2013, Merck Millipore launched a new Mobius FlexReady Solution, a fully-automated system that ready to set up, which makes it ideal for CMOs and pilot plants that have rapidly changing demands.

The nanofiltration technique segment is projected to showcase a significant growth rate during the forecast period owing to innovations in nanofiber technology. The nanofibers are the innovative and next generation of nonwoven filter media, which deliver several unique properties such as good interconnectivity of pores along with the high potential to incorporate on a nanoscale.

Crossflow filtration is another technique that is gaining significant share owing to its increasing usage and added advantages such as filter cake flush away ability, long lifespan, and its deployment for the continuous separation process. In September 2016, Sartorius Stedim Biotech launched a novel ultrafilter Sartocon Slice 50, a new crossflow filter system, which is designed for various applications in the biotech industry including small-volume process development and membrane screening.

Final product processing held the largest share in the year 2020 owing to its large application in active pharmaceutical ingredient processing, protein purification, vaccines processing, antibody processing, and viral clearance. The final product processing segment is also projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

The advancement in technology such as cross-flow filtration, nanofiber, and ultrafiltration technology boosts the adoption of innovative filters for final product processing, which is estimated to drive growth. In addition, the rising adoption of biologics and other therapeutic proteins has led to high usage of protein purification processes in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry, which propels the market growth.

The pharmaceutical filtration processes are divided on the basis of the scale of operations into manufacturing scale, pilot scale, and R&D scale. The manufacturing scale of operations held the largest market share owing to the increase in the production of biopharmaceuticals, generic drugs, and vaccines which are being used for the treatment of various diseases.

The manufacturing scale of operations is expected to continue to flourish during the forecast period as well on the account of increased demand for novel biologics and therapeutic proteins for the treatment of chronic diseases. The rising prevalence of chronic diseases like cancer, arthritis, and diabetes is expected to boost the segment growth. According to the data provided by CDC, around 54 million individuals in the U.S. are suffering from arthritis. Thus, there is a high demand for efficient and productive downstream processing products, which is projected to boost growth.

Dominant pharmaceutical companies are largely investing in the production of biologics and therapeutic proteins generating an added demand for filtration products and accessories. Developing healthcare infrastructure in emerging countries like Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, China, and India along with rising demand for innovative therapeutics have spurred the demand for these products. The focus on the development of novel drugs and biological products by manufacturers along with availability advanced technologies are expected to drive the application of filtration in the pharmaceutical manufacturing procedure.

The research and development scale segment is estimated to witness significant CAGR over the forecast period due to the rising investment in R&D for new technology and product development. For instance, the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA)member companies have invested around USD 58.8 billion in 2015 for the R&D.

The North American region contributed to the largest share by virtue of large dominant pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies including Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd, Pfizer Inc., Merck KGaA, and Amgen Inc. in this region. Well-developed healthcare infrastructure and accessibility to advanced products in this region have fueled the growth of the regional market.

The European region is another dominant region in the market as a result of advanced healthcare infrastructure and the availability of technologically advanced products in the region. Increasing demand for biopharmaceuticals is also expected to drive growth in this region.  European based leading market players like Merck KGaA and Sartorius Stedim Biotech S.A. have a wide distribution network in the region. This enables the European region to capture considerable share owing to the development of new systems and devices.

The Asia Pacific pharmaceutical filtration market is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to untapped market potential in the region. The proliferation of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies in this region has resulted in immense growth. Heavy investments by CMOs (Contract Manufacturing Organizations) and CROs (Contract Research Organizations) for the production of drugs and biologics as well as less stringent government regulations act in the favor of these companies fueling the growth of the market. Developing healthcare infrastructure and the availability of large genome pools are major attributes causing the growth of the market.
