Single use bioprocessing equipment in a relatively short span of time has become widely accepted in the field of bioprocessing. First single use bioreactor entered the market approximately 10 years ago. It was Wave rocker platforms by GE Healthcare. Since, then the new entrants continue to launch their innovative products. Bioprocess is a process that is used to obtain desired products from the living cells or their components such as chloroplasts, bacteria, enzymes and others in containers. The technology aims on the development of disposable accessories and bio-processing equipment to manufacture biopharmaceutical products. The main idea behind this technology is to reduce the cost engaged with maintenance of the steel based bioreactor systems. Furthermore, the technology also enables the reduction of complex steps involved in sterilization and cleaning of the steel based bioreactor systems and accessories. These equipment also known as disposable equipment continue to be used in wide range of biopharmaceutical applications such as purification, filtration, upstream expression, mixing, storage and separations.
The report on single use bioprocessing systems market can be segmented on the basis of application. The segment can be categorized into research and development (R&D) support single use systems and GMP/commercial single use systems. R&D support single use systems comprises containers, tubing, sampling systems, connectors, mixers, disposable bioreactors, purification devices and columns and probes and sensors. GMP single use systems comprise manifolds, tubing storage containers and disposable used in stainless steel based bioreactors. Of these two segments research and development accounts for the majority share of the market and only approximately 25% of the market share is captured by the commercial and GMP segment. It has been observed that currently there are very few disposable equipment available for GMP applications as the technology is still considered new in this segment. However, with the penetration of single use technology the commercial development sector is expected to witness a significant growth rate in the future. Geographically the market for single use bioprocessing systems would estimate the market size for North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and rest of the world.
Growing demand for the use of biodisposables in the manufacture of vaccines, monoclonals and other biopharmaceuticals is a major factor that is expected to drive the market for single use equipment to a higher end. Reduced risk of contamination, eliminated step of cleaning and improved system of flexibility are the other benefits of single use reactors that is further triggering the growth of this market. However, issue such as safety and uncertainties are the key factors that are anticipated to hold back the market. As the commercial application of single use bioreactors is primarily concerned with the safety hence, for biopharmaceutical manufacture safety is prime concern. Moreover, plastic used in this technology have been used for decades thus, these polymers might be inappropriate for product contact application associated with biopharmaceutical manufacturing.
The market for single use bioprocessing systems is highly fragmented hence intense competitive rivalry is seen among the players operating in this segment. The major players operating in this market includes GE Healthcare, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Merck & Co. Inc., Sartorius Stedim Biotech SA, Eppendorf AG, Broadley-James Ltd., Parker Hannifin Corporation, Saint-Gobain Corporation, STI Components Inc., Tarpon Biosystems Inc., Cellexus Ltd., Pall Corporation and others. Among all the players ThermoFisher Scientific occupies a share of more than 40% followed by other players. These players dominate the market due to innovative and highly effective products.
