Depth Filteration Market Analysis

The depth filtration market is expected to register a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period. The impact of COVID-19 was adverse on the market owing to the cancellations in research and development activities of therapies and drugs for medical conditions other than COVID-19 and the supply chain of the pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceuticals, and medical devices around the world, which impacted the studied market. For instance, according to the August 2021 article published in the BioProcess International journal, the COVID-19 pandemic continued to impact biopharma supply chains. As per the article, the pandemic affected supply chains for 87% of respondents which was the same proportion as in 2020. However, the market started to gain traction as the research and development activities and supply chain of pharmaceuticals resumed. Thus COVID-19 pandemic impacted the studied market.

In addition, the increasing adoption of single-use technologies, low-cost and user-friendly, and rising research and development expenditure are actively affecting the growth of the studied market.

Single-use technologies are becoming more widely used in the bioprocessing industry, even with a long-standing demand for stainless steel, reusable devices in large-scale production remain largely unabated. For instance, according to an article titled, "Rise of Single-Use Bioprocessing Technologies: Dominating Most R&D and Clinical Manufacture" published in the American Pharmaceutical Review in February 2020, the annual growth rate of adoption of single-use bioreactors was around 11% in 2020. According to the same source, when adoption rates and the percentage of the industry using single-use (SUS) devices by stage of manufacture were compared, single-use bioreactors were discovered to be used by 71.2% of the industry in process development but only 36% in commercial production. Despite this, more than 55% use single-use sampling systems in clinical or commercial production, compared to only 28% in research and development. This reflects the relative advantages of using disposable versus reusable devices throughout the process stream. The advantage of single-use technologies is anticipated to augment the market growth.

With the rising investments by biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies in expanding their product lines and increasing their geographical reach in single-use technologies, the demand for depth filtration is increasing which is expected to augment the growth in the studied market. For instance, in July 2021 Cytiva and Pall Corporation invested USD 1.5 billion for the coming two years to meet the rising demand for biotechnology solutions, out of which over 300 million was to be used in single-use technologies including bioreactor bags for growing cells used to make personalized medicines and single-use filters to expand operations in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Therefore, owing to the abovementioned factors, the studied market is anticipated to witness growth over the analysis period. However, high capital investment is likely to impede the market growth.

Depth Filteration Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Depth Filteration Market according to our research experts:

Cartridge Filters is Expected to Witness Growth Over The Forecast Period.

Cartridge Filters are estimated to witness growth in the future attributed to high dirt holding capacity, long service life, cost-effectiveness, reliability, and high performance. Cartridge filters are the tubular filtration equipment used across several industries for filtration such as starting from pre-filter for high purity water to final product processing and filtration of chemicals, As these filters are very effective against small contaminants which results in wide adoption in wastewater treatment.

Biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical companies have boosted their research and development spending significantly. According to the Congressional Budget Office report published in April 2021, these companies spend over a quarter of their sales on research and development. The rising research by biopharma and pharmaceutical companies will likely lead to increased demand for cartridge filters to maintain accuracy and avoid infections, thereby expected to propel the segment's growth.

Additionally, the advancements in technology and increasing product approvals, along with partnerships by critical players are helping in the market growth. For instance, in October 2021, the Industrial Gas Filtration and Generation Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation launched two new aftermarket cartridge filters. The designed filters are intended to meet special applications to help customers improve their bottom line. These launches are predicted to boost the demand for cartridge filters and in turn projected to augment the segment growth.

North America is Expected Dominate the Depth Filtration Market Over The Forecast Period

North America is expected to dominate the market owing to factors such as the increasing number of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, rising concern regarding purification, quality, protection of contaminants, and growth in water filtration, filtration, food & beverage, and raw material purification products, the strong presence of industry players in the region.

According to National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics included in the National Science Foundation June 2022 report, the estimated investment in research and experimental development performed in the United States totaled for 2020, based on performer-reported expectations, was USD 708.0 billion. The high investment in the country is projected to augment the studied market in the region.

As per the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers Association (PhRMA), United States companies conduct over half the world's research and development (R&D) in biopharmaceuticals which are ultimately propelling the growth of depth filtration as these processes are crucial in biopharmaceuticals as well as food & beverage, water purification and many more which further boost the overall market in this region. For instance, in February 2021, Hangzhou Sciwind Biosciences Co. Ltd (Sciwind), a clinical-stage fast-growing biopharmaceutical company, received USD 37 million Series B financing from LYFE Capital to accelerate research and development of innovative biologics in the therapeutic area of chronic metabolic and immunological diseases.

Also, in October 2021, the National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals (NIIMBL) of the United States granted funding of USD 3 million for six new biopharmaceutical manufacturing products. The institute that will receive the financing includes North Carolina State University, the University of Massachusetts, the University of Georgia, the University of Michigan, the University of Delaware, and Carnegie Mellon University. The surge in regional research and development funding is likely to augment market growth.

Therefore, owing to the factors mentioned above, the growth of the studied market is anticipated in the North America Region.
