Effectiveness of Chemical Method Drives it to Fore Vis-à-vis Market Share

Depending upon the type of method, the global viral inactivation market can be divided segmented into chemical, radiation, and others such as pasteurization and dry and moist heat treatment. Of them, the chemical method leads the market with maximum share as it is a robust and effective method of inactivation of different types of viruses. It is also cost-effective, safe, and brings about a high degree of purity of sample. The chemical method is further sub-segmented into solvent detergent method, use of alkylating agent method, and pH concentration method. The solvent detergent method, among them, is projected to account for largest market share by the end of 2025.  

In terms of growth rate, however, the radiation method for viral inactivation is expected to outpace all others on account of the rising adoption of the method in blood centers in developed nations. The UV radiation method has been tested and developed for viral inactivation of blood and blood components at blood centers and at commercial manufacturing facilities.

Robust Biopharmaceutical Industry Makes North America Dominant Region

From a geographical standpoint, North America currently holds a sway over the global market on account of a robust biopharmaceutical industry, swift uptake of newer viral inactivation methodologies, rising demand for blood and blood components for transfusion therapy, and strict regulatory guidelines for the viral safety of biologics products. By growing at a CAGR of 7.2% in the forecast period, the market will likely become worth US$2.31 bn by 2025.

However, North America is slated to lose some of its market share to Asia Pacific, which is predicted to expand at maximum pace. The report by TMR projects the viral inactivation market in the region to clock a CAGR of 7.9% from 2017 to 2025. The region’s growth will be primarily powered by countries of South Korea, Japan, and Australia which have strict rules in place for purity of biologics and biosimilars products and also by China, India, and Malaysia having a booming biopharmaceutical industry.

Some of the dominant players in the global market for viral inactivation are Shandong Weigao Group Medical Polymer Company Limited, Sartorius AG, Cerus Corporation, Macopharma SA, and Terumo BCT, Inc.
