Hollow fiber filtration is the process in which the filtering system uses the porous, narrow, flexible, hollow fiber filter (membrane) to withstand high pressure. The hollow fiber membrane is placed in the PVC shell made up of artificial polymers. It is mainly used for microfiltration and reverse osmosis processes. This is one of the effective technology to remove contaminants from the liquid. The particles are filtered based on their size and molecular weight. There are two ways to operate the process, dead-end filtration (feed flows directly into the membrane) and crossflow filtration (feed is sent in the recirculation loop). Following are the advantages of the technique -

  • Removal of contaminants like viruses, bacteria, and fungi

  • Separation of non-chemicals with no risk alteration

  • Saves electrical energy and consumption

  • Avoids waste formation

  • Cost-effective 

The high density of the packing low fouling and flexibility are the benefits of the hollow fiber filtration system. The applications of the system are fed-batch cell culture, chromatography, perfusion cell culture, gene therapy, therapeutic protein production, vaccine production, biopharmaceutics, wastewater treatment, oil and gas processing, kidney dialysis, and ground and surface water purification. One of the examples of hollow fiber membranes is hollow fiber membranes for 3D Renal Cultures. The cell cultures of the membrane can be used for a bioartificial kidney for dialysis treatment. 

Development of the biologics is increasing leading to the investments of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. The drug candidates for discovery include biologics like proteins, monoclonal antibodies, and others. The research and development in these biologics boost the market contributing the pharmaceutical product and drug discovery. Companies are focusing on improving the filtration process system for higher yield and productivity paving way for the hollow fiber filtration market. The COVID-19 pandemic leading to the development of vaccines and drug production is also a major driving factor for the market. Demand for wastewater treatment is increased leading to the major adoption of hollow fiber filtration techniques. 

Apart from the advancements, there is still a lack of awareness about effective filtering and purification techniques. Strict regulations are followed by government agencies for ensuring drug safety. These can be some of the restraining factors for market growth. In 2018, a single hollow fiber membrane named grand green XL was invented by the Watersep Bioseparation company.

Recently Repligen Corporation company purchased Engineering Molding Technology for the expansion of its single-use filtration system. This developed the application of a single-use filtration system in the advancement of the hollow fiber filtration system. 

The market is segmented by material type, technique, application, and end-user. The type segment is based on polymeric and ceramic. The technique segment is based on microfiltration and ultrafiltration. The application segment is based upon continuous cell perfusion, harvest and clarification, concentration and diafiltration. The end-user segment is based on pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, contract research organizations and contract manufacturing organizations.

Based on regions, the market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa. North-America holds the largest market due to the advanced manufacturing techniques developed by the companies. Moreover, biopharmaceutical companies have developed cost-effective products boosting market growth. The Asia-Pacific region is likely to grow at the fastest growth rate during the forecast period.
