Global Single-use Bioreactors Market: Overview
The use of single-use bioreactors across the global pharmaceutical industry has significantly increased since inception roughly two decades back. The market for these disposable bioreactors continues to tread along a healthy growth path as pharmaceutical companies begin to understand the immense flexibility and several other advantages associated with their use. For multi-drug producing pharmaceutical units, especially, single-use bioreactors mitigate the risk of cross-contamination and save significant time that is otherwise spent for cleaning and clearance validation to assure that no compounds are carried over from prior batches.
By lowering down the costs involved in cleaning and sterilizing bioreactors and increasing the operational flexibility of the entire drug manufacturing process, the use of single-use bioreactors leads to reduced capital expenditure costs. Owing to these factors, the preference for single-use bioreactors has significantly increased over the conventional stainless steel reactors in the past years.
An increasingly rising number of pharmaceutical companies are presently preferring the use of disposables for applications such as filtration, media preparation, purification, cell harvesting, virus inactivation, and buffer preparation. In the next few years, single-use bioreactors will play a central role in the pharmaceutical industry, supporting the need for the rapid development of novel drug varieties to tackle the vast array of diseases that are presently untreated or are becoming increasingly prevalent.
