Filtration Market Overview

The global filtration market size is estimated to grow from USD 5.1 billion in 2023 to USD 15 billion by 2035, representing a CAGR of 9% during the forecast period 2023-2035.

Biologics represents one of the fastest growing segments of the healthcare sector. In last five years, over 50 biologics been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and close to 10,000 biologics are being evaluated across different stages of development. The growing demand for biologics has consequently led to the need for development of advanced technologies for the purification of these drug substances. This need is primarily driven by the fact that biologics are sensitive to heat and other chemically driven purification treatments, which may result in degradation of the final product. 

Biopharmaceutical filtration refers to the process of purification and sterilization of biological drug products without the application of heat and chemicals.  A key advancement in this industry has been the introduction of novel filtration systems, such as depth filtration, tangential flow filtration, virus filtration and chromatography filtration systems. These systems can be applied to a wide variety of application areas due to their flexible nature. In fact, several large pharma companies have already made investments and technological advancements to improve their conventional filtration technologies. The primary goal behind introducing these filters is to achieve the highest possible purity and yield of the desired biological product, along with maintaining its safety and efficacy for use in human or animal health. Given the ongoing advancements in the nature of biologics, several companies have developed and launched their proprietary biopharmaceutical filtration systems for more efficient purification of biologics. Overall, the global filtration market growth is expected to be driven by the rising demand for biologics.
