The global tangential flow filtration market size was valued at USD 786.75 Million in 2023. It is further estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 12% and worth USD 1386.53 Million by 2027.
Tangential flow filtration, also known as cross-flow filtration, is a useful downstream processing technique used in bio-manufacturing and the upstream cell harvesting process (separation of cells from fermentation broth). The injected solution flows tangentially over the filter's surface, with the pressure difference directing components smaller than the pores through the filter. A wide range of biomolecules, including antibodies, nucleic acids, and recombinant proteins, are separated and purified using tangential flow filtration. This approach has numerous advantages, including the flexibility to be used in various biological domains such as immunology, protein chemistry, molecular biology, biochemistry, and microbiology, as well as its flexibility to a variety of volumes for separation and purification. Tangential flow filtration is used to concentrate and desalt sample solutions ranging from ten milliliters to thousands of liters. It has several benefits, including easy scaling up and scaling down, simple set-up and operation, and time and money savings. It allows researchers to conduct a wide range of biological domains such as immunology, protein chemistry, molecular biology, biochemistry, and microbiology. Approximately 115 vaccine candidates and 155 compounds are currently being developed in the R&D pipeline.
The increase in the biopharmaceutical sector primarily drives the growth of the global tangential flow filtration market. It includes the benefits of tangential flow filtration over standard flow filtration, the rising usage of single-use technologies, and growing cGMP acceptance. Additionally, the market is likely to grow due to increased investment from pharmaceutical firms, increased acceptance of single-use technologies, and the benefits associated with tangential flow filtering. The other factors driving this market include an increase in biologics manufacturing, investments by large pharmaceutical firms and CMOs in newer facilities to meet expanding biologics demand, and a need for efficient and cost-effective downstream processing technologies in bio-manufacturing.
A wide range of biomolecules, including antibodies, nucleic acids, and recombinant proteins, are separated and purified using tangential flow filtration. This methodology has several advantages, including the capacity to be used in various biological domains such as immunology, protein chemistry, molecular biology, biochemistry, and microbiology, as well as its flexibility to a variety of volumes. Increasing the global usage of single-use TFF systems and the advantages of these completely automated single-use systems are less validation, lower capital costs, and fewer cleaning requirements. Single-pass disposable tangential flow filters might easily fix this problem. As a result, emerging products, such as disposable technologies, have a considerable potential to accelerate the growth of the global tangential flow filtration market throughout the projection period. The current market dynamics have created a demand for innovative manufacturing facility designs that are flexible and productive, allowing for low-cost scale changes in a smaller footprint.
The large capital expenditure necessary to build up new manufacturing facilities, on the other hand, is a key factor limiting the growth of the global tangential flow filtration market. Additionally, the availability of rival technologies such as centrifugation, direct flow filtration, and pre-coat filtration is expected to limit the market.
Impact of COVID-19 on the global tangential flow filtration market:
The global COVID-19 pandemic has affected the economy and the different sectors of the market. Pharmaceutical markets have been boosted during the pandemic period. Pharmaceutical and biotech companies, in collaboration with governments throughout the world, are striving to combat the COVID-19 epidemic, from vaccine research to planning for obstacles in the pharmaceutical supply chain. Approximately 115 vaccine candidates and 155 compounds are currently being developed in the R&D pipeline. Furthermore, regularly used medications like Hydroxychloroquine have shown a significant increase in demand for the treatment of COVID-19. Due to the increased demand for these treatments, makers of COVID-19 management medications have a huge potential since many wealthy nations are running out of them. The pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries are predicted to increase significantly due to the demand for COVID-19 vaccines and treatment medications. COVID-19 is predicted to have a substantial influence on the Tangential Flow Filtration Market due to these factors. However, the market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period.
