Market Overview

The Track-Etched Membrane Market is expected to register a CAGR of 11.1% during the forecast period. Increasing number of research and development activities related to pharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals, and advancement in the product is expected to boost the track-etched membrane market growth. The advantages of track-etched membrane over the conventional membrane gives an edge over. The track-etched membrane has precise pore size when compared to conventional membrane as it involves bombardment of heavy ions on the film. It enables low protein binding which leads to minimal contamination of the sample. Furthermore, the membrane filtration technique plays an important role in case of developing drug, testing drug toxicity, efficacy, and in developing bioactive molecules also. Nano-sized porous membrane with controlled physical and chemical properties enables efficient drug delivery process.

Key Market Trends

Cell Biology Segment is Expected to Hold a Major Market Share in the Track-Etched Membrane Market

  • Cell culture is one of the important process which is involved in developing vaccines, biologic, monoclonal bodies,etc. One of its crucial part is cell filtration 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, with track-etched membrane as controlled precise pore size is possible. Also, these membranes are tend to provide more surface area. Since the adoption of biologic, cell-culture based vaccines, etc. is growing, the demand for track-etched membrane filter is also expected to increase.
  • Clarification process consists of centrifugation, micro-filtration and harvesting of the culture. Cell separation and removal of cell debris are the primary goals of this procedure, for which membrane filtration technique is required.
