Advancements in Single-Use Bioprocessing: Driving Growth and Efficiency

The global single-use bioprocessing market is expected to reach USD 20.8 billion by 2026 from USD 8.2 billion in 2021, at a CAGR of 20.5% during the forecast period. The growth in this market is attributed to the increasing demand for low-cost biopharmaceuticals, as single-use bioprocessing systems play a significant role in reducing the initial investments and R&D costs involved in the manufacturing process of biologics. Moreover, the deployment of single-use bioprocessing systems increases the productivity of manufacturing processes as a result of reductions in cost and complexity of automation, and elimination of the need for change-over cleaning/validation between consecutive operations. However, issues such as plastic waste, extractability and leachability of the materials used in bioprocessing are expected to restrict the growth of this market.
