Sales Analysis of Pyrogen Testing from 2016 to 2020 Vs Market Outlook for 2021 to 2031

The global market for pyrogen testing expanded at a CAGR of 8% over the last five years (2016-2020).

Increasing burden of chronic illnesses needs standard requirements for approval of medical products and services through various tests. The pyrogen test determines the presence or absence of pyrogen in parenteral medicines, and is governed by several standards by organizations such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), United States Pharmacopeia (USP), and European Pharmacopoeia (EP).

The Limulus Amebocyte Lysate test was incorporated as one of the most reliable and accurate tools for quality testing in the pharmaceutical industry. It is approved by the European Pharmacopoeia and other pharmacopoeias.

The Rabbit Pyrogen Test (RPT) measures the rise in rabbit body temperature after an intravenous injection of the tested product. RPT gives qualitative results and is very insensitive. The robustness of the study is also limited due to repeated injections to the rabbit during the study or the development of pyrogen resistance after stress.

Introduction of the Monocyte Activation Test (MAT) was the latest development in the field of pyrogen testing in pharmaceutical and medical products & services. MAT is an alternative to animal-based methods for detecting both, endotoxin and non-endotoxin pyrogens. Due to its higher sensitivities toward all the pyrogens compared to other tests, and better quantitative results & accuracy, these are being preferred by all healthcare product manufacturers. They are used in testing pyrogens in pharmaceuticals, biologics, vaccines, and many other therapeutic areas.

The global pyrogen testing products market is predicted to surge ahead at a CAGR of 12.2% and record sales worth US$ 4.58 Bn by the end of 2031.

What’s Restraining Demand for Pyrogen Testing Products to Some Extent?

“Increasing Regulations on Animal-based Pyrogen Testing across Regions”

According to the European Pharmacopoeia's general chapter 2.6.30, the rabbit pyrogen test will gradually be replaced by other pyrogen tests, which is a significant step forward in terms of animal welfare, in accordance with the Council of Europe's European Convention for the Protection of Vertebrate Animals Used for Experimental and Other Scientific Purposes.

Following the European Pharmacopoeia's introduction of this reform, a number of other regulatory bodies throughout the world followed suit. In the near future, demand for rabbit pyrogen testing will greatly reduce.

MAT is the most recent advancement in the pyrogen testing industry. There isn't enough money in developing countries to invest in cutting-edge technology when they emerge. As a result, adoption of novel technology is slower in these regions.
