Key Market Trends

Membrane Segment is Expected to Exhibit a Significant Market Growth in the Sterile Filtration Market

Membrane is a type of filter that have a uniform sized pores that traps the micro-organisms. The adoption of biologics, cell-culture based vaccines, etc. is growing, which is expected to grow the demand for filtration. For developing these biologics, cell filtration is a crucial part as the culture needs to be protected against introduction of unwanted bacteria, virus and other micro-organisms. Hence, a proper membrane filter is of utmost importance.

Furthermore, the clarification process involves centrifugation, microfiltration and harvesting of the culture. Cell separation and removal of cell debris are the primary goals of this procedure, for which membranes are required. Thus, it is expected to impact positively on the sterile filtration market.
