The global downstream processing market is projected to reach USD 22.03 billion by 2021 from USD 10.32 billion in 2016, at a CAGR of 16.4% from 2016 to 2021. Increasing demand for biopharmaceuticals and increasing R&D expenditure in the biopharmaceutical industry are the major factors driving the growth of the global downstream processing market.
Developing markets in Asia-Pacific such as Japan, China, India, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, and Singapore are lucrative markets for downstream processing, rising geriatric population, growing per capita income, increasing investments in the healthcare industry by key market players, and increasing outsourcing services by various pharmaceutical companies from these countries are the major factors driving the growth of the downstream processing market in this region.
In this report, the downstream processing market is broadly segmented on the basis of technique, product, application, end user, and region. Based on application, the downstream processing market is classified into monoclonal antibody (mAbs) production, vaccine production, insulin production, immunoglobulin production, erythropoietin production, and other applications. The mAbs production segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. This high growth is attributed to the increasing adoption of targeted immunotherapy and increasing number of U.S. FDA-cleared therapeutic monoclonal antibodies.
On the basis of technique, the market is segmented into purification, solid-liquid separation, and clarification/concentration. In 2016, the purification segment accounted for the largest share of the downstream processing market. The large share as well as the high growth of this segment is attributed to the growing need for highly pure biopharmaceutical products.
On the basis of product, the downstream processing market is segmented into chromatography columns and resins, filters, membrane adsorbers, single-use products, and other products. In 2016, the chromatography columns and resins segment accounted for the largest share of the downstream processing market. The constant need for newer and different types of columns and resins is likely to fuel market growth.
On the basis of end user, the downstream processing market is segmented into biopharmaceutical manufacturers and contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs). The contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
New and innovative product launches was the dominant strategy adopted by key industry participants to increase their market share and cater to unmet needs. Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (U.S.), GE Healthcare (U.S.), Sartorius Stedim Biotech S.A. (France), Merck Millipore (Germany), and Danaher Corporation (U.S.) are some of the leading manufacturing companies that adopted this strategy.
