Virus purification kits provide fast and simple procedures to concentrate and purify viral vectors from cell lysate and cell culture media. A large number of vaccines are produced from cell-culture derived virus particles. Downstream purification strategies can be expensive and account for 70% of the overall manufacturing costs, which has been fueling the demand for innovative technologies for virus purification in the last few years. North America dominated the global virus purification kits market, in terms of revenue, in 2019. It is expected to continue its market dominance by the end of 2030.

Rise in Research Funding by Public and Private Players to Drive Market

R&D is a vital source of innovation, as it contributes to critical knowledge-based assets as well as strengthens absorptive capacities. Furthermore, an increase in competition in the market is prompting companies to focus on R&D by allocating more resources, both in the form of investments and trained workforce. For instance, Danaher Corporation’s investment in research & development increased from ~US$ 956 Mn in 2017 to US$ 1.1 Bn in 2019. The higher yield of virus particles received with the help of virus purification kits is also fuelling the global virus purification kits market.

Increase in support from governmental bodies for biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries and consistent expansion of biopharmaceutical & biotechnology industries are major factors driving the global virus purification kits market.

Chromatography to be Lucrative Technology

Based on technology, the global virus purification kits market has been divided into ultracentrifugation, chromatography, nanofiltration, and others. The ultracentrifugation segment dominated the global virus purification kits market due to cost-effective methods and the availability of a large number of products by major companies. Chromatography is likely to be a highly lucrative segment during the forecast period, owing to faster processing time, higher recovery rate of virus, simple methods, and highly purified virus offered by this technology.

Adenovirus Dominated Global Market

In terms of virus type, the global virus purification kits market has been segmented into adenovirus, lentivirus, retrovirus, and others. The adenovirus segment accounted for a major share of the market in 2019. It is expected to dominate the global virus purification kits market by 2030. Higher yield of adenovirus particles by latest virus purification kits, major application in viral vector based drugs, and rising incidence of adenoviruses-associated respiratory diseases are key drivers of the segment.

Contract Research Organizations (CROs) to be Promising End User

Based on end user, the global virus purification kits market has been divided into academic & research institutes, biopharmaceutical & biotechnology companies, contract research organizations (CROs), and others. The biopharmaceutical & biotechnology companies segment dominated the global virus purification kits market in 2019 due to the rise in adoption of biotherapeutics across the globe and research activities for drug discovery. Contract research organizations (CROs) is a highly lucrative segment, which is expected to expand at a high CAGR during the forecast period, owing to investments in R&D and initiation of research projects across the globe.

Single-use Membrane Chromatography Reduces Manufacturing Costs of Vaccines

The virus purification kits market is expected to reach US$ 3.2 Bn by the end of 2030. However, high costs involving complex procedures for vaccine production and gene therapy pose as barriers for market growth. Hence, manufacturers are using single-use membrane chromatography to bolster productivity levels and reduce manufacturing costs. For instance, the Natrix® single-use membrane chromatography procedure is highly sought after for high binding and short residence times in developing viral vectors for gene therapy.

In order to test new constructs, parallel and fast purification of different adenoviruses is essential. In order to achieve this, companies are introducing simple and affordable spin column based purification kits. On the other hand, researchers and scientists are conducting virus purification using the membrane adsorber technology.

Higher Yields in Recovery of Particles Preferred by Researchers and Academicians

Fast and safe virus purification kits are becoming increasingly popular in the healthcare landscape. The U.S. multinational pharmaceutical company Merck is increasing its production capacities for Millipore’s fast-trap adenovirus and lentivirus purification and concentration kits that are emerging as a fast and safe alternative to conventional kits. Companies in the virus purification kits market are focusing on high recovery of viable viral particles with good purity.

Time efficiency and higher yields in recovery of particles are preferred in virus purification kits. There is a growing demand for kits that eliminate messy purification steps and eliminate the need for expensive equipment. As such, companies in the virus purification kits market are developing close vacuum devices that eliminate risks of potential spills and meet the convenience of researchers and healthcare professionals. Advanced virus purification kits are solving issues of labor intensive procedures in laboratory and academic research settings.

Adenovirus Purification Kits Eliminate Need for Time-consuming Ultracentrifugation Procedures

The virus purification kits market is expected to advance at a striking CAGR of ~11% during the assessment period. This can be attributed to innovations in kits that help deliver fast and efficient purification of recombinant virus. For instance, BioVision-a supplier of high quality assay kits has a wide product portfolio in adenovirus, lentivirus, and retrovirus purification kits. As such, adenovirus purification kits are anticipated to dominate the highest revenue share among all virus types in the virus purification kits market.

Manufacturers are increasing the availability of ready-to-use reagents in virus purification kits to make the procedure of particle recovery simple, easy, and convenient. They are developing kits that eliminate the need for ultracentrifugation, since this procedure is time consuming and limited to the amount of cell lysate to be processed.

North America to Lead Global Market

In terms of region, the global virus purification kits market has been divided into five major regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America accounted for a major share of the global virus purification kits market in 2019, owing to favorable policies & regulatory scenario established by governments for biopharmaceutical industries in the region, highly developed healthcare sector, increase in preference for biopharmaceuticals over conventional counterparts, and continuous evolution of technology. A survey report conducted by Pharmaceutical Researchers and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) indicated that the total pharmaceutical R&D expenditure in the U.S. was US$ 48.6 Bn in 2011, which increased to US$ 71.4 Bn in 2017. The market in Asia Pacific is projected to expand at a high CAGR during the forecast period due to the expansion of the healthcare sector, growing clinical trials for new drug development, and low cost of products and labor in the region.
