Global industrial bioprocessing market has been witnessing strong growth over the past few years on account of increasing demand for bio-based products. Industrial bioprocessing includes manufacturing of food, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, chemicals and polymers. Advantages associated with bio-based products include non-toxicity and environmental friendliness. Shift in trend towards developing industrial bio-based products such as specialty chemicals, pharmaceuticals, fuels and chemical feedstock through biological sources is expected to have a positive impact on the global industrial bioprocessing market over the next seven years. Bioprocessing helps in producing value-added products from renewable sources such as vegetable oils and fatty acids Volatile prices of petroleum resulted in industries shifting their demand towards bio-based products. This trend is expected to complement the market growth over the forecast period.
Major application of industrial bioprocessing includes production of vaccines, bio-pharmaceuticals, tissue engineering, biosensors, bioelectronics, therapeutic monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) bio-arrays and bio-technology. Other applications of bioprocessing technology include bio-fabrication for the production of bio-fluidics and other biomaterials. Bioprocessing products are used as critical components in the production of most widely used drugs and vaccines. Bioprocessing technology for mAbs production has developed over the past decade. Increasing demand for mAbs from pharmaceutical industry is further expected to drive the market over the forecast period. Bioprocessing has found major application in the production of single-use systems such as disposable bags, columns and bioreactors. Single use systems address growing demand and produce more amount of biological products rather than producing in bulk which require large, expensive and permanent facilities. Growing demand for these single use systems is anticipated to augment the market growth over the next seven years.
Pharmaceutical industry was the major end-use for industrial bioprocessing market over the past few years and the trend is expected to continue over the forecast period. Increasing demand for single use products such as disposable bags, gloves, medical syringes, and bioreactors have been driving the market growth. Owing to volatile prices of petroleum, chemical industry has been witnessing significant demand for industrial bioprocessing over the past few years. Increasing environmental concerns and growing demand for bio-based chemicals is further expected to drive the industrial bioprocessing market.
Major companies in the industrial bioprocessing market are actively involved in R&D to develop high quality products through biotechnology. Growing initiatives towards R&D by major market players is expected to drive market competitiveness. In order to improve their R&D, companies have further affiliated with research institutes such as Center for Queensland University of Technology, Bioprocess Engineering Research and KGI Amgen Bioprocessing Center. Mergers and acquisitions are common in the market along with technology sharing and marketing & sales agreements. These strategies are employed by companies to strengthen their market share and gain competitive advantage. Major companies operating in the global industrial processing market include BD Biosciences, BioPharm International and GE Healthcare Lifesciences.
