Market Overview

The single-use bioprocessing probes and sensors market is projected to register a CAGR of 13% during the forecast period.

Unlike other industries, COVID-19 has significantly benefited the market in terms of adoption and revenue growth. The pandemic has accelerated the application of single-use solutions including sensors to meet the technology demand for therapeutics and vaccine manufacturing. Increasing collaboration between technology suppliers and biomanufacturers to boost vaccine manufacturing using single-use technology is a testament of positive impact of COVID-19 on the market. For example, in September 2020, Serum Institute of India Pvt. Ltd. collaborated with ABEC, a global provider of integrated solutions for biopharmaceutical manufacturing, for single-use COVID-19 vaccine manufacturing. This involves the use of disposables including single-use sensors for biomanufacturing of vaccines against COVID-19.

Single-use technologies have played great role in reshaping the biomanufacturing/bioprocessing industry by virtue of its significant commercial cost and time-saving advantages. With advent of disposables, single-use bioreactors have supplanted a major portion of the conventional solutions in the bioprocessing industry, leading to the high demand for single-use sensors.

Currently, the market is witnessing great demand for innovation in sensors by biopharmaceutical manufacturers. One of primary reasons is continuous requirement of increasingly detailed and complex measurement of processes by regulators. This demand for innovation is anticipated to grow remarkably in the coming years with increasing need of sensors for improved analytical methods and assay for process monitoring and control. Continuous development in sensors is expected to play a vital role in facilitating the process quantification and process analytical technology. As a result, sensor suppliers are working closely with OEMs and other key stakeholders to understand the market needs and introduce sensors with advanced features.

The key driving force of the market is the cost and time saving advantages associated with the usage of disposables across the bioprocessing workflows. Single-use technology requires less instrumentation and utility demandand abolishes the need of sterilization and cleaning processes, thereby reducing the overall production cost. Furthermore, disposables enable manufacturers to purchase more capacity with a limited start-up budget. These factors have spurred the adoption of single-use sensors among biomanufacturers. Furthermore, the therapy developers are making significant investments for expansion of their single-use facility. For instance, in February 2022, Thermo Fisher Scientific announced investment of USD 40 million for expansion of single-use technology manufacturing facility in Millersburg, Pennsylvania, United States. These factors are anticipated to drive the market with double-digit growth rate during the forecast period.

Key Market Trends

The pH sensor segment is expected to account for the major share

The pH sensor segment is expected to account for the major share during the forecast period owing to the highest penetration of the product in terms of usage and availability. The development of disposable pH sensors that combines the reliability and measurement capabilities of conventional sensors along with the ease of use as an integral part of single-use containers is driving the segment growth.

In March 2021, Mettler-Toledo International Inc. announced acquisition of PendoTECH, an independent supplier of single-use technology including pH sensors. This acquisition would expand client base for both the companies, thereby driving their business revenue. Such ongoing activities in the space are expected to significantly accelerate the segment growth.

Despite the presence of a high number of disposables pH sensors, this segment continues to witness demand for sensor innovation among biopharmaceutical manufacturers. As a result, market players are undertaking various market measures to address the industry needs. For instance, in March 2019, Pall Corporation collaborated with Broadley-James Corporation for the integration and distribution of Broadley-James’ advanced single-use probe and flow cell pH sensors into Pall Biotech’s single-use technologies and commercially available solutions. Also, a article was published by Senior Rosemount Measurement Product Engineer for Life Sciences from Emerson Electric Co. in March 2021 regarding the need of specialized pH sensing technology for single-use biopharmacutical manufacturing. Similarly, in August 2021, a article was published by BioProcess International that discussed the designing and performance of a new single-use pH sensor with long shelf life and high stability. The technology is deployed for launch of Emerson’s Rosemount 550pH single-use sensor. Such research articles are anticipated to drive developments under this segment.

Furthermore, market players are engaged in the development of systems that advance and compress unit operations, for example, smart consumables with integrated sensors for pH, Dissolved Oxygen (DO), and other parameters. These factors are anticipated to greatly benefit the segment growth in terms of revenue generation in the coming years.

single-use bioprocessing probes and sensors market trends

North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Market and Expected to Maintain its Dominance in the Forecast Period.

The key factor contributing to the dominance of North America is the presence of a substantial number of technology developers including OEMs and independent suppliers in the United States coupled with a high concentration of bioprocessing facilities in the region. The presence of major biomanufacturers such as Thermo Fisher, FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies U.S.A., Inc., AbbVie, Inc., Novartis AG, and CMC Biologics in the United States that deploys single-use solutions in their biomanufacturing facilities is anticipated to serve as one of the key driving forces of the market in North America. For instance, in March 2021, Thermo Fisher launched 3,000L and 5,000L HyPerforma DynaDrive single-use bioreactors for cell culture production. The DynaDrive 50L and 500L models were launched in 2020 with new features, including improved sensor technology alongside other features.

Rising popularity and demand for biotherapeutics that involve the use of bioprocessing instruments further pressure the manufacturers to reduce the timeline of final product launch while maintaining the yield and quality of production. This further spurs the adoption of single-use technology for biomanufacturing of biotherapeutics owing to the cost and time-saving advantages of disposables over conventional bioprocess instruments. For instance, in December 2021, Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies announced to invest USD 300 million for expansion of its advance therapy and vaccine manufacturing capacity by the addition of a new single-use cGMP production facility in its Texas site.
