In pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical product manufacturing, contamination prevention is a crucial part of the process. The proper handling and storage of fluids are essential to limit the possibility of contamination. Facility layout helps determine the method used by companies to handle fluid transfer and storage. The growing adoption of single-use systems (SUS) reduces product cross-contamination and eliminates the need for cleaning between batches, hence improving efficiency. The SUSs are made in a cleanroom; they are double bagged, and gamma, ethylene oxide, or x-ray methods are used to ensure a sterile system for every batch.
During the development of several pharmaceutical products such as vaccines, monoclonal antibodies, and personalized medicines, SUS is used as it offers a faster, simpler, and less expensive manufacturing process. Due to the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, there is a growing demand for effective drugs and products. Hence, companies are increasingly opting for SUS because it enhances the efficiency of processes and reduces costs related to cleaning, sterilization, and maintenance. In addition, low risk of contamination and low water consumption are a few factors supporting the pharmaceutical fluid handling market growth. The market growth is also attributed to increased company activities and rapid adoption of various business strategies such as collaborations, partnerships, and product launches. For instance, in April 2022, Merck signed an agreement with Wuxi National High-Tech Industrial Development Zone to expand its first Asia Pacific Mobius Single-Use manufacturing center.
Thus, the increased use of SUS in the production and transfer of sterile fluids is driving the growth of the pharmaceutical fluid handling market.
Vaccines strengthen the immune system of different age groups, providing protection against infectious diseases. In the past few decades, effective immunization has eliminated polio and smallpox, which registered high mortality rates. In recent years, there has been an increase in vaccination demand due to the rising incidences of viral and bacterial infectious diseases. Further, government foundations, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies are focusing on regular vaccine administration by providing cost-effective immunization globally. This is boosting the demand for vaccine production, which is likely to promote the growth of the pharmaceutical fluid handling market. For instance, the Indian Universal Immunization Programme (UPI) rolled out its pneumococcal conjugate vaccine to 21 lakh children. Additionally, government funding and company investments are stimulating R&D to launch new products. According to World Health Organization, in November 2022, a total of 16 billion vaccine doses, valued at US$ 141 billion, were supplied in 2021, which is approximately three times more than the doses supplied in 2019, i.e., 5.8 billion. The Serum Institute of India (SII) postponed HPV vaccine production for two years due to the focus on the development of COVID-19 vaccines; however, it will begin supplying HPV vaccine to the Government of India by 2023 in small quantities. Thus, an increase in vaccine production is anticipated to create an opportunity for the pharmaceutical fluid handling market during the forecast period.
Based on tubing, the global pharmaceutical fluid handling market is segmented into thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and silicone. In 2022, the silicone segment held the largest share of the market. The TPE segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during 2022–2028. Thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) offer excellent processability, making them suitable for all conventional extrusion plants and injection molding. They are cost-effective and have lower emissions and reliable reusability. High-quality, specialized tubing is vital to design a system of efficient pharmaceutical fluid processing; the pre-sterilized tubing is required to meet specific manufacturing standards, and sterilization capability is necessary when the tubing is exposed to autoclaving, gas treatment, gamma irradiation, and other sterilization methods. A significant consideration for biopharmaceutical tubing is its welding and sealing capability; TPEs can be welded and heat-sealed. For example, on May 18, 2022, Freudenberg Medical, a manufacturer of medical and pharmaceutical devices, launched HelixFlex, which combines all benefits, i.e., weldable, translucent, sealable, and can be used in peristaltic pumping applications. A high-purity thermoplastic elastomer TPE tubing is designed for biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical applications.
Based on application, the pharmaceutical fluid handling market is segmented into fluid handling & management, fluid preparation, integration & automation, aseptic processing, buffer management, and others. The fluid handling & management segment held the largest market share in 2021; however, the integration & automation segment is further expected to be the largest shareholder in the market by 2028. Automation is inevitable and ever expansive. As technology continues to advance, automation shows the potential to transform processes and introduce performance improvements. In the pharmaceutical industry, the use of automation also reduces the chance of human error through its capability to consistently perform repetitive tasks. Pharmaceutical companies have been integrating automation into specific processes such as drug development, serialization, and anti-counterfeiting. In manufacturing examples, automation has become prevalent in processes such as fluid handling and management. Automation is essential for in vitro diagnostics (IVD), molecular analysis, flow cytometry, next-generation sequencing (NGS), or cell biology systems. Furthermore, combining mixing technology with filtration and fluid management permits the automated preparation of fluids using standard recipes to mix, adjust pH, and filter process buffers. Thus, growing demand for automaton is expected to drive the market for pharmaceutical fluid handling in the coming years.
