The bioprocess container market is projected to grow from USD $2.9 billion in 2021 to USD $9.6 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 26.3% during the forecast period, according to a recent market research report from MarketsandMarkets. 

The report, entitled Bioprocess Containers Market by Type(2D and 3D Bags, Accessories), Application(Process development, Upstream and Downstream Process), End User(Pharma & Biopharma Companies, CMOs & CROs, Academic & Research Institute), & Region – Global Forecast to 2026, attributes the projected growth to factors including:

  • A buoyant biologics market
  • The affordability and sustainability of single-use bioprocess technologies
  • Rising biopharmaceutical research and development

Commenting on the report, ALLpaQ Managing Director Phill Allen said the findings chimed with those experienced by his own company over the past two years. “The liquid handling market has indeed seen increasing demand from pharmaceutical, life science and biotechnology companies for sustainable secondary packaging solutions,” remarked Mr Allen. 

MarketsandMarkets’ research follows hot on the heels of another report, from Axiom Market Research & Consulting, which named ALLpaQ as a ‘key player’ in the growth of the bioprocess containment market

The research report also found a thriving bioprocess containment market buoyed by increasing demand for low-cost biologic drugs and considerations around the sustainability of single-use technologies.

MarketsandMarkets’ research report also provides insights as regards the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19, the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered novel coronavirus, has been declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). Since the outbreak began in December 2019, pharmaceutical companies, along with players in the bioprocess containers market, have led the way in the development of treatments and vaccines. 

MarketsandMarkets’s research finds that, since the majority of the prevailing COVID-19 vaccine programmes harness novel approaches, including mRNA, DNA vaccine, and vectors, these platforms are largely built on single-use technology. 

As such, most of the pandemic-related new facilities are choosing to embrace single-use systems. This, according to the report, is “due to their flexibility combined with high speed and much lower capital investment when compared to traditional stainless steel equipment”.  

The surge in single-use technologies for COVID-19 pandemic-related research along with increasing vaccine development is therefore projected to have a positive impact on the bioprocess containers market.
