Filtration is one of the most important processes used in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries to maintain the quality of the final products. Some factors, such as strict regulatory requirements in terms of product purity and the increase in the importance of filters in pharmaceutical industries, such as the manufacturing of monoclonal antibodies, recombinant proteins, antibiotics, growth media purification, and depyrogenation, are driving the growth of the pharmaceutical filters market globally. It is observed that membrane filters held the largest market share due to their efficiency and applicability to clarify and filter different pharmaceuticals such as syrups, large volume parenteral, small volume parenteral, active pharmaceutical ingredients, as well as biological products such as blood plasma, blood fractions, animal sera, fermentation broths, cell culture media, and veterinary products.

The global pharmaceutical filtration market is divided into the following segments based on application:

  • Final product processing
  • API Filtration
  • Sterile Filtration
  • Protein Purification
  • Vaccines and Antibody Processing
  • Formulation and Filling Solutions
  • Viral Clearance
  • Raw Material Filtration
  • Media and Buffer
  • Pre-filtration
  • Bioburden Testing
  • Cell Separation
  • Water Purification
  • Air Purification

The increasing use of pharmaceutical filters in the processing of APIs, biologics, culture media, controlling bioburden, LVPs, SVPs, and topical products is driving the growth of the pharmaceutical filter market globally. It is observed that, in the base year 2016, final product processing was a major revenue-generating segment due to the growing number of pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. Stringent regulatory guidelines to maintain a clean manufacturing process and delivery of quality products are prime factors driving the growth of the pharmaceutical filtration market globally. An increase in the use of biological drug products, the growing use of filters in the protein purification process, and technological advances in the filtration process that led to increased adoption of the filtration process in final product processing—all these factors are contributing to the market growth of final product processing.

Based on technology type, the global pharmaceutical filtration market is segmented as follows:

  • Microfiltration
  • Ultrafiltration
  • Nano-filtration
  • Other Techniques

It is known that filters are widely used in the pharmaceutical industry to filter and clarify plasma, APIs, and cell culture harvests. For the purpose of the study, the pharmaceutical filtration market is segmented on the basis of technology such as microfiltration, ultrafiltration, nano-filtration, and other techniques. According to research, demand for microfilters is increasing in the pharmaceutical market due to benefits such as precision, higher speed, low operating pressure, low energy consumption, and low-cost availability, which are driving the market growth of microfilters. Microfiltration membranes have a pore size of 0.1–10 m, which is large enough to restrain all types of bacteria, turbidity, macromolecules, and colloidal particles. Thus, microfiltration is commonly used during cold sterilization of pharmaceutical products, effluent treatment, separation of water oil-water emulsion, water bacteria reduction, and pretreatment for nano-filtration and reverse osmosis.

For the purpose of this study, the global pharmaceutical filtration market is categorized into three segments:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)

Currently, North America occupies the largest share in the global pharmaceutical filtration market due to the well-established research and development infrastructure of the biotechnology and life science industries, the presence of a large number of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies, and favorable government policies leading to the advancement in biotech and pharmaceutical research, which are key factors driving the market's growth. The pharmaceutical market's key players are based in North America, giving them an advantage in the pharmaceutical filtration market's growth. Conversely, growing penetration activities of large market players in emerging economies increased strategic collaborations, and a growing number of pharmaceutical industries in Asia Pacific's emerging countries would result in the fastest-growing regional market.
