Pharmaceutical Filtration Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global pharmaceutical filtration market size is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 9% between 2022 to 2027 and be worth USD 27.35 billion by 2027, from USD 17.78 billion in 2022.

The process that helps separate suspended particles from a medium by passing them through a membrane is filtration. Filtration is a physical technique employed in various fields, including the pharmaceutical industry. It is one of the essential processes adopted in the pharmaceutical industry. The filtration process can also be combined with other operations. It is different from sieving, where separation is carried out using a single perforated layer. It is unlike filtration, where a multi-layer lattice is generally used. This technique is used in many processes such as air filtration, bulk and solvent filtration, and water filtration. The market is expected to expand at a fast rate during the forecast period.


Factors such as strict cleanliness requirements in manufacturing facilities, an increase in the production of various large molecules, a rise in the manufacture of vaccines due to the incidence of various diseases such as chikungunya, dengue, and malaria are driving the pharmaceutical filtration market. Furthermore, an increase in R&D funding, technological advancement, infiltration techniques, and growth in the generic drugs market also propels the European pharmaceutical filtration market.

Existing economies are expected to offer tremendous opportunities in the global pharmaceutical filtration market, owing to the biopharmaceutical industry's growth. Developing countries like India, China, Russia, and Brazil provide immense growth opportunities for the pharmaceutical filtration market players. Growth in the healthcare sector and the low manufacturing cost are expected to offer more than enough market players chances.     

An increase in the products' sales in a particular market and demand for pharmaceutical filtration in developing countries offer lucrative opportunities to the global market players.


However, large capital requirements and strict validation and qualification procedures in different countries are expected to hamper the pharmaceutical filtration market during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global pharmaceutical filtration market:

The novel COVID 19 caused by the SARS-CoV-2 agent affects millions of people, the business sector, and healthcare. The governments have imposed a severe lockdown from March to May. Many pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies have temporarily shut their doors due to a lack of workforce to avoid widespread disease. The pandemic has created a positive effect on the pharmaceutical filtration market. The filtration technologies play a vital role in response to the impact of COVID 19. The majority of the pharmaceutical filtration manufacturers worldwide interrupted their activities during COVID 19 pandemic lockdown. The demand for these filtration systems has risen over the pandemic time. The increase is due to continuous research and development of vaccines to recover from the virus-infected patients. The pharmaceutical filtration market demand is due to the threat of COVID 19 transmission via air in indoor space. The Nanotech filter coating air filters to capture airborne or droplets of the virus. The demand for this market is accumulating to develop purity.
