The global laboratory filtration market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 7.25% from 2024 to 2029 and be worth USD 16.15 billion by 2029 from USD 11.38 billion in 2024.

Filtration in Laboratories is a process of splitting particles, micro-organisms, or droplets from a liquid or gas. This process is used for many clinical, chemical, biological, and analytical labs for various applications like gas purification and many more.


Situations caused by COVID-19, the growing need for filtration in laboratories, increasing R&D, and technological developments are majorly augmenting the growth of the global laboratory filtration market. A wide range of filtration application processes, such as fluid monitoring, sterilizing, gas and venting filtration, and others, boost the growth of the global laboratory filtration market. Increased R & D initiatives by pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies leading to the emergence of novel and innovative techniques contribute to the growth of the laboratory filtration market. The formation of favorable regulatory policies in various nations is boosting the growth of this market. Increasing the adoption of laboratory filters in developing countries due to technological developments and digitalization is another major factor that catalyzes the growth of the worldwide laboratory filtration business.

The increasing scale of biotherapeutic molecule production leads to a boost in demand for ultra-filtration devices. It is expected to expand growth opportunities for the key players in the laboratory filtration market during the forecast period. The increasing focus of pharmaceutical giants on research and development activities is likely to offer growth opportunities for the stakeholders in the laboratory filtration demand during the projection period. The increasing adoption of lab filtration in biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries to develop large drug molecules is anticipated to provide growth opportunities for the laboratory filtration market players. Increasing focus on quality-controlling measures to manufacture ideal end products due to stringent regulations is another significant opportunity for the growth of the laboratory filtration market. 

Steadily increasing demand for purifying equipment and membrane filtration, technology offers lucrative growth opportunities for the target market and is likely to continue the trend over the outlook period. Also, the increasing economies of developed and developing countries like China, Brazil, India, and others leading to the expansion of healthcare and the growing focus of governments in the region to provide better facilities boost growth opportunities for the global laboratory filtration market.


The primary factor restraining the global laboratory filtration market's growth is the high costs associated with systems. Lack of skilled professionals and unwillingness to adapt to technically advanced techniques due to lack of knowledge limit the growth of this laboratory filtration industry.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global laboratory filtration market

The impact of COVID-19 has favored the laboratory filtration market, and the market demand levels are on the swing since March 2019. COVID-19 is declared as emergency healthcare by the World Health Organization (WHO). Due to COVID-19, many companies are in the race to determine a vaccine for the novel coronavirus disease. In clinical laboratories, laboratory filtration plays an important role in filtering the virus and bacteria. As there is an increasing number of COVID-19 patients worldwide, the prevalence of developing a vaccine is also rising enormously. The market growth is further expected to grow to better heights in the near future.
