North America Dominates the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period

North America is expected to dominate the overall bioprocess container market throughout the forecast period. This dominance is mainly owing to the high demand for biopharmaceuticals due to the rise in geriatric population and advanced health care infrastructure in the United States. Also, due to the presence of leading players focusing on research activities and huge investments in health care by manufacturers based in the United States contributes to its outstanding market growth globally.

Next to North America, Europe holds for the second-highest market globally with a rise in the life science R&D companies and manufacturing units of biologics and biosimilars in the region. Thus, the requirement of bioprocess containers increased rapidly to minimize the process complications and contamination risks primarily contribute to the growth of the market in the region propelling the global market.

The Asia Pacific market is anticipated to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to the significant investments by key market players coupled with the increasing government support in the region. The advanced developments in countries like China, India, and Japan with a high R&D infrastructure of pharmaceutical manufacturing and comparatively cheaper labor cost fuel the market revenue. For instance, in May 2017, Merck opened its first joint bioprocess Scale-Up laboratory in Bengaluru, India with Stelis Biopharma to provide end-to-end solutions for pre-clinical, clinical and commercial supply indicating huge growth for the market in the region.
