                        RD_Global Bioprocess Containers: Current Scenario and Forecast (2020-2027)

Bioprocess Containers Market is expected to register a CAGR growth of 26% during the forecast period (2021-2027). Bioprocess containers are flexile and single-use containers widely used in the Biopharmaceutical industry for the handling of sterile liquids, media preparation, and vaccine production. These containers are used for the storage of sterile containers and to speed up the ongoing biopharmaceutical process. In addition, these containers are less costly and are equipped with ports, fittings, tubing, and plastic films. In the production of biologics, the bioprocess containers are coupled with high-performance systems. These containers offer several advantages over the conventional stainless-steel system such as physical & chemical properties and biological compatibility. Bioprocess containers are widely exploited across pharma & biotech, bioresearch, consumer health, coatings & composites, and agro ingredients. They are also utilized for bioprocess systems, cell culture products, and drug discovery. Moreover, they lower energy costs, reduce chemical & water use, minimize cleaning validation efforts, and enable manufacturing flexibility. COVID-19 is an incomparable global public health emergency that has affected almost every industry, and the long-term effects are projected to impact the industry growth during the forecast period. With the World Health Organization (WHO) officially declaring the outbreak of the virus as a pandemic, a mix of established pharmaceutical companies, as well as players in the bioprocess containers market, have stepped forward to develop treatments and vaccines that target the infection caused by the novel coronavirus. A few instances in this regard are:

  • In March 2021, Pall Corporation (US) acquired Pall-Austar Lifesciences Limited (China), which is a joint venture established by Pall and Austar Group. This acquisition expanded Pall’s manufacturing capacity to primarily support the single-use technology supply chain demand in China to support the development of COVID-19 vaccines.
  • In March 2021, Merck (Germany) invested ~USD 30 million (EUR 25 million) to add a single-use assembly production unit at its Life Sciences Center in Molsheim, France. With this expansion, the company is accelerating its European expansion plans for single-use technology, which is used to produce COVID-19 vaccines and other lifesaving therapies.
