The global pharmaceutical membrane filtration market is projected to reach USD 19.6 billion by 2029 from USD 10.6 billion in 2024, at a CAGR of 13.1% during the forecast period of 2024 to 2029. The growth of this market can be attributed to increasing purity requirements in end-use industries. In the life sciences industry, ultrapure water is essential for genomics, proteomics, immunology, pharmacology, cell and tissue culture, and drug discovery. Due to the increasing demand for Type I, ultrapure, or research-grade water in life science research, pure lab water supply has become one of the most important and fastest-growing markets in the laboratory industry. This trend is expected to drive the growth of the pharmaceutical membrane filtration market in the coming years.

“The sterile filtration segment accounted for the largest share by type in 2023.”
In 2023, the sterile filtration segment accounted for the largest share by type in the global pharmaceutical membrane filtration market. Sterile filtration is the process of microbial removal and plays an important role in assuring final product sterility. Sterile filters are widely used for the intermediate and final filtration of liquid drug products. According to regulatory authorities, sterile-grade filters are required for the final product processing of drugs and are of utmost importance during final product processing. Moreover, there are various advantages of sterile filters over non-sterile filters, which make them the preferred choice for upstream and downstream processing in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries.

“The US has continued to dominate the pharmaceutical membrane filtration market during the forecast period of 2024-2029.”
