Membrane Technology Market in Pharmaceutical, Biopharma and Life Sciences - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2019

Globally, the membrane technology market is witnessing significant growth due to increasing research and development and production in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and life sciences industries. There has been a substantial rise in the number of membrane technology applications, including separation and purification of drug components, in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and life sciences industries. Thus, rise in pharmaceutical production and increasing number of membrane technology applications worldwide are driving growth of membrane technology in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and life sciences industries. In addition, stringent regulations and usage of single-use disposable technique are playing a major role in the growth of the membrane technology market. Presence of various filtration techniques such as ultrafiltration, nanofiltration and microfiltration, under membrane technology has increased its acceptance in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and life science industries for separation and purification of components and biomolecules over conventional techniques. The global membrane technology market for pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and life science industries is expected to be USD 7,029.9 million in 2014. It is likely to grow at a CAGR of 9.1% during 2014 to 2019 to reach USD 10,886 million in 2019.

 

North America is the largest market, and biopharmaceutical industry is the largest segment in the global market for membrane technology in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and life sciences industries. However, Asia is the fastest growing region in the membrane technology market. Additionally, nanofiltration is the fastest growing technology in the global market for membrane technology in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and life sciences industries.

 

The membrane technology market in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and life sciences industries accounted for USD 4,590 million in revenue in 2009.

 

Biopharmaceuticals commanded the largest share in the overall membrane technology market in 2009. It was estimated to grow at a CAGR of 9% from 2009 to 2013.

In the field of pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and life sciences, membrane technology makes use of four key technologies: nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, chromatography, and microfiltration. 

 

The research report is an in-depth evaluation of the membrane technology market and assesses its involvement in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and life sciences industries from 2014 through 2019. The report focuses on the structure, elements, dynamics, growth factors, challenges, and prominent players of the membrane technology market by presenting data in a qualitative as well as quantitative format. 

 

Overview of the global membrane technology market in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and life sciences industries 

 

According to the report, the global market for membrane technology in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and life sciences industries is set to grow from a market value of US$6,461.3 million in 2013 to US$10,886 million by 2019 by registering a CAGR of 9.1% between 2014 and 2019.

 

The membrane technology market for pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and life sciences industries has grown in recent times owing to the global rise in pharmaceutical production, the adoption of single-use disposable technique for biopharmaceutical applications, enforcement of stringent regulations, and focus on product modification and product innovation. 

 

On the flip side, the limitations associated with membrane materials, need for major capital investments, sky-high operational costs, and the adverse effects of membrane fouling have threatened to hamper the growth of the membrane technology market in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and life sciences industries.

 

North America currently dominates the global membrane technology market, with a 41% share in 2012. Thanks to the flourishing pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical markets in the U.S. and the presence of a strong regulatory board such as the FDA, the membrane technology market in North America is expected to retain the lead in the coming years. Numerous organizations, associations, and societies have been actively involved in the development of membrane technology in Europe, making it the second largest market in the world. However, presenting a 13% CAGR from 2014 to 2019 owing to a large patient pool, increased health awareness and spending, and rising prevalence of chronic diseases, Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest developing geographical segment of the membrane technology market.
