This market research study identifies Danaher, GE Healthcare, Merck, and Sartorius as the leading players in the global pharmaceutical filtration market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by technique (microfiltration, ultrafiltration, and others) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Global pharmaceutical filtration market forecast

The researchers are focusing on creating antibodies to fight against diseases like Ebola, rheumatoid arthritis, and diverse types of cancers. Similarly, monoclonal antibodies are designed in conjugation with anti-cancer drugs. Research analysis on the pharmaceutical filtration market identifies that increasing demand for monoclonal antibodies will be one of the major factors that will aid in increasing the pharmaceutical filtration market size. The production of monoclonal antibodies requires membrane filtration method to purify the antibody. Cell debris, whole cells, and particulates are removed in a typical purification process. The monoclonal antibodies are separated by elution, using a buffer solution. They are further purified through additional chromatography and virus clearance steps to create a good manufacturing product. This in turn, is used to develop drugs. Consequently, the increasing application of monoclonal antibodies will boost the application of pharmaceutical filtration products. According to the pharmaceutical filtration industry analysis, Technavio’s market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of about 11% by 2021.

Advancement in nanofiber membrane technology is identified as one of the key trends that will gain traction in the pharmaceutical filtration market during the forecast period. Nanofibers are used to improve air filtration efficiency of filters and media in pharmaceutical industries. Nanofiltration is highly preferred in pharmaceutical industries due to its high surface-to-volume ratio, low resistance, and enhanced filtration performance. Nanofiber webs are used over conventional purification methods because they act as protective fabrics against infectious and environmental agents.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The pharmaceutical filtration market is intensified due to the presence of diversified international and regional or local vendors. Key players of the ultrafiltration membrane market are focusing on internationally expanding their impression in the market. This makes it difficult for regional vendors to compete against key players in terms of quality, price, market reach, and financial resources. Increase in product innovations, product or service extensions, and mergers and acquisitions will strengthen the competitive environment of the market.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • Danaher
  • GE Healthcare
  • Merck
  • Sartorius

Other prominent vendors in the market include 3M, Amazon Filters, Cole-Parmer, Eaton, Graver Technologies, Hahnemühle, Infolabel, MAVAG, MEISSNER FILTRATION PRODUCTS, Microclar Argentina, Omicron Scientific, Parker Hannifin, Qorpak, Sefar, SiliCycle, and Westbury Filtermation.

Segmentation by technique and analysis of the pharmaceutical filtration market

  • Microfiltration
  • Ultrafiltration

The microfiltration technique is designed to separate colloidal compounds or large molecular weight suspended from dissolved solids using low-pressure methods. The microfiltration segment contributed the majority of shares during 2016 because it is used for various process purification, separation, and concentration processes. The segment will continue to grow for the next four years because it is extensively used for fractionation of milk proteins, treat water for portability, sterilize pharmaceuticals, treat wastewater, and harvest cell from fermentation broths. It can remove various particulates, organic materials, bacteria, viruses, certain dyes, taste, odor, and color.

Segmentation by geography and analysis of the pharmaceutical filtration market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

The Americas is witnessing growth in the pharmaceutical filtration market due to the presence of several big pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer, Novartis, and F. Hoffmann-La Roche. These companies increasingly rely on pharmaceutical filtration products to develop and produce new drugs and vaccines by organizing various types of research activities. The demand for pharmaceutical membrane filter technique will continue to increase in the region throughout the estimated period due to the rising investments in the healthcare sector.
