Syringe filter, commonly known as wheel filter, is fitted with a cartridge at the end of a syringe. Syringe filter works with the help of a lock fitting which is used to provide a secure fitting to the syringe. The use of a needle is optimal and can be fitted to the end of the syringe filter during usage. The syringe filter generally consists of a plastic wrapped with a membrane like substance, which serves as a filter. The fluid used to be purified can be cleaned by drawing it through the syringe filters and forcing the unfiltered fluid out. Syringe filters can be used to filter solid drugs prior to injection. The filters get rid of many impurities present in drugs in the form of fungal spores, bacteria, or fillers. However, usage of pills and other drugs in liquid form for administering into the body can bring a profit to the pharmaceutical industry.
High prevalence of diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, neurological diseases, cancer, and other infectious diseases, rise in patient awareness, and growth in research and development initiatives are the driving factors for the syringe filters market. Presence of fungal spores and bactericidal in the semipermeable membrane of syringe filters is expected to hamper the syringe filters market growth during the forecast period.
The global syringe filters market has been segmented based on type, application, end-user, and geography. In terms of type, the market for syringe filter is classified into cellulose acetate syringe filter, glass fiber syringe filter, nitrocellulose polymer syringe filter, nylon syringe filter, polyethersulfone polymer syringe filter, and others.
