Market Insights

In virus filtration process a membrane barrier is used to separate virus particles. This is a specifically designed polymeric membrane used to keep virus particles over the surface and within the membrane pores. The most important parameters that specifically focuses on the log reduction value (LRV) and throughput further affecting parameters due to key factors such as presence of foulants, concentration of protein, viral load, pressure, operating flux, and ionic strength, among others. The most vital part of virus filtration is selection and validation of suitable viral filter for the probable range of conditions.

In year 2017, virus filters and filtration systems accounted for the largest market share due to key market drivers such as high quality standards set by regulatory bodies, and developing medical device & pharmaceutical technologies assisting the market entry of new companies. Thus, overall industrial growth in healthcare industry is considered as the key factor responsible for growth of virus filtration market.

During the forecast period from 2018 to 2026, biological applications segment expected to grow significantly and dominate the overall virus filtration market. Biological application comprises vaccines & therapeutics, blood & blood products, cellular & gene therapy products, tissue & tissue products, and stem cell products. The majority products are found under biological applications due to which this segment dominates the market and expected to maintain that position throughout the forecast period. The stringent regulatory guidelines for biological products have increased the demand for virus filtration systems in biotechnology, pharmaceutical & medical device companies.

In 2017, North America dominated the global virus filtration and expected to maintain its position throughout the forecast period due to key factors responsible for its growth such as rising awareness related to risks associated with virus traces in biological products, and stringent policies designed by regulatory bodies in healthcare industry.
