Market Overview

The aseptic sampling market is registered a CAGR of nearly 10.24% during the forecast period. The major factors attributing to the growth of the aseptic sampling market are the rise in the demand for biopharmaceuticals which resulted in the increased adoption of single-use aseptic sampling products.

Movover, owing to the COVID 19 situation, there were many of the companies focused on the development of the effective vaccines, biologics and drugs to prevent/cure the disease. This is increased demand for aseptic testing. However, due to the slow down of development and manufacturing of other pharmaceuticals or biologics coupled with supply chain disruption, the market has witnessed difficulties in 2020.

On the other hand, with growing spending on healthcare and drug development by companies and governments all over the world, aseptic sampling is projected to grow notably over the period. According to the United States Food and Drug Administration, there were about 53 novel drugs approved in 2020 compared to 48 in 2019. Moreover, as per 10th march 2021, there were additional 12 novel drugs approved in United States. In additionas a result of the increase in government expenditure for healthcare, government regulations to ensure drug safety, R&D activities in the segment increase globally, fueling the aseptic sampling market.

Key Market Trends

Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Expected to Have Notable growth

In the aseptic sampling market, biotechnology and pharmaceutical manufacturers are expected to have notable growth owing to the growing R&D spending, growing biological and pharmaceutical pipeline. According to the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America 2020, in 2019, PhrMA company members have invested about USD 83 billion in worldwide R&D compared to compared to 79.6 billion in 2019. Similarly, according to the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations 2018, In 2017, there an estimated 35,200 million was spent on Pharmaceutical R&D in Europe. Furthermore, these are expected to increase further over the forecast period.

Also, advancements in product technologies and adoption by the pharma and biotech companies are expected to fuel the segment growth. For instance, in May 2020, Aventor Inc has launched OmniTop Sample Tubes Adjustable sampling system for designed specifically for the lower contamination risk and routine sampling in bioprocessing operations. 

Also, with the COVID 19 situation, the manufacturing of essential drugs has been increased tremendously in the majority of the countries in Europe and Asia. The countries around the world are focusing on strengthening the increasing the manufacturing capacity locally and strengthening it requirements on quality of the pharma and biotech procuducts, which is likely to fuel the market growth for aseptic sampling over the period.

Aseptic Sampling Market Key Trends

North America Projected to Have Significant Share Over the Forecast Period.

North America projected to have a notable share of the aseptic sampling market and expected to do the same in the forecast period. Also, the increase in government expenditure for the healthcare sector, early product launches, and stringent government regulations regarding the safety and quality of various drugs will drive the North American aseptic sampling market.

The United States expected to have a significant share owing to the presence of key market players and rising support of the government on production and quality of pharma and biotech products. According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) statistics 2020, in 2018, United States biotechnology companies has spent around 14.9% of the business expenditure of biotechnology. Whereas, Canada has spent only 3.6%.

The Asia Pacific aseptic sampling market is anticipated to show the highest growth rate in throughout the forecast period, owing to large-scale investments made by the key players. Furthermore, the increasing research activities in developing countries, such as China and India will give rise to advanced technological equipment and sampling techniques which boost the market growth in the region.
