Global Single-Use Bioreactors Market to Reach US$ 11.1 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Increasing Demand for Biopharmaceutical Products

March 23, 2023 | Healthcare

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Single-Use Bioreactors Market Report by Product Type (Single-use Bioreactor Systems, Media Bags, Filtration Assemblies, and Others), Type (Stirred-tank Bioreactors, Wave-induced Bioreactors, Bubble-column Bioreactors, and Others), Cell Type (Mammalian Cell, Bacteria, Yeast, and Others), Molecule Type (Vaccines, Monoclonal Antibodies, Stem Cells, Recombinant Proteins, and Others), End User (Pharmaceutical and Biopharmaceutical Companies, Contract Research Organizations, Academic and Research Institutes, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global single-use bioreactors market reached a value of US$ 3.4 Billion in 2023. Single-use bioreactors are bioreactors with disposable bags that allow processors to implement disposable technology in the production process steps that had previously been earmarked for stainless steel equipment. There are two types of single-use bioreactors, stirred and rocking. A stirred single-use bioreactor utilizes single-use materials already incorporated in the plastic bag. In contrast, a rocking single-use bioreactor doesn't require stirrers within the single-use bag and is agitated by a rocking motion. These bioreactors lower the risks of cross-contamination and improve biological and process safety. They are used only once and are then disposed of after their use. They are made of plastic and are available in various sizes and shapes, depending on the application. Single-use bioreactors are used in the bioprocessing industry to produce biopharmaceutical products, such as vaccines and therapeutic products. They are designed to offer maximum convenience and flexibility in setup, cleaning, and operation.

Global Single-Use Bioreactors Market Trends:

The global market is majorly driven by the increasing demand for biopharmaceuticals. In line with this, the rising investments by the leading players for producing advanced and effective equipment are significantly contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the cost-effectiveness, high mass production capability, and versatility of single-use bioreactors are accelerating the product demand for various applications. Apart from this, the growing production of new bio-therapeutics, including vaccines, antibodies, enzymes, and hormones, is positively influencing the market. Moreover, the escalating uptake of disposable technology in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry is catalyzing the market. Besides, rapid technological developments in single-use bioreactors and the increasing acceptance of single-use bioreactors amongst small companies and start-ups are propelling the market. Additionally, the growing research and development expenditure on biopharmaceuticals is favoring the market expansion. Several market players are focusing on improving the designs, sensor systems, film technology, and stirring mechanism of single-use bioreactors, which, in turn, is expected to provide a boost to the market growth. Some of the other factors driving the market include the rapid adoption of single-use bioreactors by CMOs among biopharma innovators for small and mid-scale bioprocessing, large-scale commercial manufacturing, and the increasing rates of infections worldwide. On account of the factors above, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 11.1 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 13.8% during 2024-2032.
