Global Single-Use Technologies for Biopharmaceuticals Market: Key Trends and Opportunities
The global single-use technologies for biopharmaceuticals market is earning a considerably positive reception from healthcare organizations due to the increased convenience that these products impart to medical procedures. This comes from a protective perspective as single-use instruments do not need specialized cleaning and sterilization processes, thereby reducing the need for large numbers of sterilization chambers or autoclaves. The single-use technologies for biopharmaceuticals also provides the healthcare industry the golden opportunity of reducing the overall spreading of nosocomial infections, which are currently observed to be on the rise. These pre-assembled and sterile instruments are expected to be in great demand over the coming years.
The single-use technologies for biopharmaceuticals includes instruments based on culture systems used, and includes pipettes, vials, microtiter plates, flasks, and petriplates. The common sample transfer and collection systems involved in single-use technologies for biopharmaceuticals include reservoirs, plugs, filters, and tubing. Bags and containers are generally the two disposal products being used for these instruments. Meanwhile, the global single-use technologies for biopharmaceuticals market offers several bioreactors and other accessories, such as agitated single use bioreactors, stirred tank single use bioreactors, sensors, and pumps.
The scope of use of single-use technologies for biopharmaceuticals over the coming years is likely to remain very high, primarily due to the growing need for tools and instruments that fit the increasingly rapid processes in the healthcare industry. The growing patient numbers and the increased focus on solving current key diseases is driving the use of disposable instruments as they complement the speed at which treatments can take place. Furthermore, the global single-use technologies for biopharmaceuticals market is also expected to be driven by factors such as increasing maintenance cost of multiple use apparatus, increasing strict regulatory frameworks regarding reuse of medical apparatus, and the growing demand for automation of manufacturing processes.
