Key Market Dynamics

Coupled with production of portable water and industrial effluent cleaning process, the membrane filter technology is widely used for concentration, purification, and fractionation of macromolecular mixtures in food and drug industries. In addition, it also finds application in separation of vapors and gases.

Attributed to growing production levels and R&D investments in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and life sciences industries, the membrane filter technology is anticipated to gain traction over the forecast period. The market is especially expected to observe higher sales in separation and purification of drug components, in pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and life sciences industries.

From drug research in laboratories to production of pharmaceuticals on a large scale, the demand for membrane technology in various stages of drug development is foreseen to remain high, providing an impetus to the market throughout the forecast period as well.

There are several other applications of membrane technology, such as lab-scale DNA and protein separation, analysis, drug screening, cell culture and examination, and virus removal, which are likely to fuel the market growth. Moreover, the membrane filter technology offers a wide range of products, including microarray products, multi-well filters, syringe membranes filters, and bottle top filters. This is another strong factor that will continue to favor the market growth through to 2019.

Stringent environmental regulations, and strict quality and safety standards in pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries, including Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) will sustain the demand for membrane technology in pharmaceutical, biopharma, and life sciences industry. Periodical replacement need will continue to favor the sales of membrane filters, as more efficient alternatives are not currently available in the market.

Limitation of the materials used in making membranes, high investment and operational costs, chances of membrane fouling, are a few of the key restraints that are predicted to detain the market growth during 2014-2019.
