How is the Adoption of Bioprocess Technology Aiding Market Growth?

The primary factor for the preference of the single-use (disposable) bioreactor in the bioprocess industry is the production of different biopharmaceutical therapeutics, using the same facility, in minimum time and with minimum cost.

The rising demand for personalized treatment for diseases like cancer is expected to increase the demand for bioprocess therapies like cell therapy. The decreasing cost of genetic sequencing shortly has enabled the development of personalized treatment plans and targeted therapies, which are more effective than less-specific therapies because they focus on a patient’s genetic and molecular makeup.

Techniques for process intensification also are being applied to biosimilar manufacturing. The increasing use of biosimilars in developed countries of Europe and the United States will boost the speed of the bioprocess technology adoption for rapid production of biosimilars.

What are the Key Opportunities for Market Players?

Favorable government policies for start-up companies, especially in developing countries are expected to create opportunities for the market players to invest in the bioprocess technology market.

Mergers, acquisitions & expansion of manufacturing facilities around the globe are expected to bose well for the market in the coming years. Introducing advanced bioprocess products to leverage untapped market opportunities will remain a key growth driver.

What is the Impact of the COVID-19 Crisis on the Market?

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to positively impact growth. It has created ample opportunities for players due to the increasing demand for bioprocess technology. Consumer behavior connected to epidemiological stages and government responses to the pandemic are resulting in high demand for bioprocess technology.

The outbreak has changed distribution channel operations and pushed traffic to e-commerce options. Supply chains were hampered during the second quarter of 2020 due to trade blocks that occurred globally to stop the surging cases of virus. These factors are however likely to subside through 2021 and beyond.

Vaccines are biopharmaceutical products, therefore, their manufacturing will require bioprocess technology.
