Pharmaceutical Filtration Market Growth & Trends

Various players involved in biopharmaceutical manufacturing are entering into collaborations or regional regulatory bodies are allowing for offshore manufacturing of large molecule drugs which provides a strong impetus to the market growth. For instance, in August 2022, Europe Medicines Agency provided Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certification to a CDMO, Charles River Laboratories of the U.S.

The following certification will now allow for offshore manufacturing of allogenic cell therapy products, thereby increasing the demand for pharmaceutical filtration products. Additionally, various market players are introducing filtration technology at both upstream and downstream levels of biopharmaceutical manufacturing, hence, proportionating the demand for pharmaceutical filter products. For example, in November 2022, Alfa Laval launched a multipurpose membrane filtration system for upstream and downstream application levels for both food and pharmaceutical manufacturing.

Due to the onset of the pandemic, a surge in the development of vaccines and biologics led to a positive impact on pharmaceutical filtration products as biopharmaceutical manufacturing requiring the usage of vaccines necessitate filtration processes. Furthermore, the utilization of single-use filtration products provided immense traction to the market, as manufacturers and researchers had to avoid any chance of cross-contamination with the viral strains used.

For instance, in September 2022, Pall Corporation announced the launch of three new Allegro Connect Systems, in continuation with the single-use portfolio of filter systems. The following product will provide automation control and control the risks, adding immense value to the pharmaceutical production of therapeutic drugs and vaccines. However, the pandemic also imposed various issues in the supply chain, which in turn negatively impacted the manufacturing and commercialization process of the COVID-19 vaccines to a certain extent.
