Monoclonal Antibody Production Towers over Other Applications with Topping Share

The worldwide single-use bioprocessing systems market finds application in a variety of biotechnology segments such as patient specific cell therapies, plant cell cultivation, vaccine production, and monoclonal antibody production. Amongst these, for the forecast period, the monoclonal antibody production segment is anticipated to secure a whopping 66.0% share in the worldwide market at a significant CAGR. The success of this market is stemmed from the important support by the U.S. and Europe governments which gave the green signal in 2015 for 10 antibody therapeutics. The latest consents given by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Union (EU) for monoclonal antibodies have offered a strong boost to the monoclonal antibody production segment. Much of the demand is also attributed to the clinical trial phases accommodating a robust increase in the count of monoclonal antibodies.

Bioprocessing bags are one product which have gained immense impetus in the global single-use bioprocessing technologies market. This could be on account of their extensive usage across a gamut of applications such as transfer, storage, mixing, and filtration during the production of drug molecules, vaccines, and monoclonal antibodies. Besides different downstream and upstream functions, bioprocessing bags can be customized as per the requirements of end users.

With a swelling awareness about the advantages of single-use bioprocessing technologies, the pharmaceuticals market is envisioned to take grip of a colossal share in terms of end user.

Europe and North America Lead Global Market Shoulder to Shoulder

There has been a pilot adoption of single-use bioprocessing technologies by specialized multiproduct biopharmaceutical and biotechnology firms, not to forget contract research organizations (CROs) and contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs), in Europe and North America. As a result, both the regions had shared their dominance in the global single-use bioprocessing technologies market in 2015 and are predicted to continue with it until 2024. The clustered developments and innovations in bioscience and avant-garde biologics research and development in these geographies could raise the bar of revenue growth. Besides this, most giant vendors in the field have headquartered their companies in Europe and North America, which is undoubtedly prophesied to welcome higher shares in these regions.

The elevated unmet need of the developing countries in Asia Pacific regarding revolutionary vaccines and therapies for cancer could offer lucrative hopes for the region in the single-use bioprocessing technologies market. The Asia Pacific market is not only poised on the back of its disease-burdened population but also the resourceful contract research services furnished to China and India by various pharmaceutical organizations.

Single-use Bioprocessing Systems Market: Trends and Opportunities

Bioprocessing is a significant part of biopharmaceutical development and production processes and single-use bioprocessing systems, which are meant for one-time use, have recently found their unique position in the biopharmaceutical and biotherapeutics industry. Biomanufacturing facilities which once housed only stainless steel equipment are paving the way for a hybrid setup which also incorporates single-use technologies. New facilities manufacturing biologics, especially CRO’s/CMO’s and small biotechnology startups are increasingly opting for fully single-use plants. These systems have made the production of clinical trial drugs as well as commercially manufactured drugs cost-effective and flexible. The market for single-use bioprocessing systems is expected to grow at a double-digit figure during the forecast period from 2016 to 2024 and shall be driven by factors such as lowered labor efforts, lowered capital cost, and riddance of time, money, and efforts spent on sterilization procedures.
