Single-Use Bioprocessing Market Size to Touch US$ 84.12 Billion By 2030

The global single-use bioprocessing market size is expected to grow from an estimated USD 21.98 billion in 2021 to USD 21.98 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 16.1% during the forecast period.

Single-use bioprocessing systems are known for developing pharmaceuticals such as medicines, vaccines, and monoclonal antibodies by using disposable or single-use technologies. The use of single-use bioprocessing technologies during the development phase of drugs has witnessed exponential growth in the past few years.

The single-use bioprocessing technologies are being used increasingly by the contract manufacturers in biopharmaceutical industry for acquiring the benefits such as low investment, low environmental footprint, and reliability. This is one of the primary factors propelling the growth of the global single-use bioprocessing market.

The growing geriatric population is boosting the market growth significantly. The growing prevalence of chronic conditions and diseases amongst the old age population is boosting the demand for the biopharmaceutical medicines.

According to the United Nations, the old age population of 65 years or above will reach up to 1.5 billion by 2050. This is estimated to foster the single-use bioprocessing market in the future. Moreover, increasing investments in the development of numerous vaccines, drugs, and diagnostic tests is positively impacting the market growth.

The global single-use bioprocessing market size is expected to grow from an estimated USD 21.98 billion in 2021 to USD 21.98 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 16.1% during the forecast period.

Single-Use Bioprocessing Market – Regional Snapshots

North America is the leading single-use bioprocessing market owing to the increased spending on healthcare, technological development in bioprocessing, and growing importance of life science research. Growing adoption of disposable systems and increased energy efficiency coupled with the minimal risk of product cross-contamination are the beneficial factors associated with the use of single-use bioprocessing products. Further, the introduction of automation, big data technology, and artificial intelligence in the single-use system has been gaining rapid traction in North America.

These latest technologies in the manufacturing units are expected to boost production and helps the manufacturers to achieve cost-efficiency and reduce wastages.The presence of a large number of big and small contract manufacturing organizations in the region are increasingly using the single-use bioprocessing technology due to its low cost and improved output. The increased economic activity of these contract manufacturers will significantly drive the growth of the single-use bioprocessing market in North America.

Asia Pacific is characterized by growing production of biosimilars, cell therapy, vaccines, and various other types of biopharmaceutical products. Moreover, China is the second largest biopharmaceutical market just after the US. China’s economic policies to attract FDIs for setting up manufacturing plants for biopharmaceutical products is exponentially fostering the demand for single-use bioprocessing technology. Moreover, nations like India, Japan, and South Korea have been a leading player in the Asia Pacific region. Biocon of India and Samsung Biologics of South Korea have earned FDA and European Medicines Agency approval respectively, for their new biosimilar products in 2017. Therefore, the single-use bioprocessing market has huge growth potential in the Asia Pacific region.

Single-Use Bioprocessing Market Dynamics

Drivers – The single-use bioprocessing market is significantly driven by the growing demand from the biopharmaceutical industry. Majority of the biopharmaceutical companies are increasingly adopting the single-use bioprocessing technology because the single-use bioprocessing systems increases the efficiency in the process and reduces the costs associated with sterilization, cleaning, and maintenance of steel bioreactors. This drives the higher adoption of disposable bioprocessing systems in the biopharmaceutical industry.

Restraints – The Bio-Process System Alliance has published a set of tests to be performed regarding the extractable and leachable contamination. The leachable and extractable are the unwanted products produced by the single-use bioprocessing system. The disposable bioprocessing system are made of plastic and often faces contamination issues. This may hamper the single-use bioprocessing market growth.

Opportunities – The emerging markets such as China and India have a high growth potential. The growing investments by the major players, growing geriatric population, and rapidly growing biotechnology in the industry is providing lucrative growth opportunities to the single-use bioprocessing market players.

Challenges – The plastic wastes generated by the disposable bioprocessing system is a major challenge faced by the market players due to the growing environmental concerns and government regulation regarding plastic wastes.
