Protein Purification and Ultrafiltration are the New Revenue Pockets for the Pharmaceutical Membrane Filtration Market
Membrane filtration is a widely used separation technique in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. It finds extensive applications in the biopharmaceutical industry as biopharmaceutical products and their intermediates are susceptible to degradation due to heat and chemical treatment, and so are difficult to separate using other separation techniques.
Like all other process equipment in the pharmaceutical industry, membrane filtration products approved for use in the pharmaceutical industry have high quality standards. Further, there is a high degree of consolidation in the market, with few large players dominating the market. Stringent regulatory requirements and high degree of consolidation are important entry barriers for new entrants in this market. Small and mid-size players have a small share of the market, and their business interests remain concentrated in local markets across emerging geographies.
The market is the most widely used technology for protein purification in the pharmaceutical industry. Other important applications of this technology in the pharmaceutical industry are cell separation and water treatment. Microfiltration and ultrafiltration are the most widely used filtration technologies in the pharmaceutical industry. In 2013, Europe was the largest market. However, the North American market is expected to grow rapidly in the forecast period between 2013 and 2018 and is expected to be as large as that of Europe by 2018.
The growth rate of the global market is expected to be high in the forecast period. Membrane filtration is a widely used separation technique in the pharmaceutical industry and its adoption rate in Europe and North America is very high. The growth in the pharmaceutical industry is the most important growth driver for the market. Further, the increasing adoption rate in the Asia-Pacific segment and the increasing demand for single use technology will further drive this market.
