Introduction & Scope





In recent years, single-use/disposable use technology has been used throughout the various stages of bio-production and has become the chief component in reducing the

cost and time of the production processing and eliminating or reducing contamination risks. BCC Research's objective in creating this report was to weigh, investigate and

comprehend the market perspective and the current and future characteristics of the global market for single-use technologies. The report provides a comprehensive

analysis and future direction of single-use technologies in the production process. This report explores present and future strategies within the single-use technology

market, which includes many different kinds of systems for upstream processing such as single-use or disposable bioreactors, membrane adsorbers, media bags, bioprocess

containers, disposable mixers and samplers, as well as the downstream processing with products such as disposable filter cartridges, depth filters, tangential flow filters,

tubing and connectors.


A detailed analysis of single-use technology industry structure has been conducted. The revenues are broken down by the region and are projected for the five-year period

from 2014 through 2019. Market leaders and their market shares, profiles of leading companies, alliances and mergers, regulatory aspects, and significant patents and their

allotments in each category are also covered. The report discusses the market for single-use technology both by application and by end user, with emphasis on the use of these technologies in biopharmaceutical production.



Single-use technologies can be applied to upstream as well as downstream bioprocessing, from formulation to filling. These technologies are used in the production of all types of biopharmaceuticals. Changes in lifestyles and healthcare systems, and increasing demand for drugs at reduced prices, has led to the development of facilities that can produce more than one product, offering flexibility and scalability. Single-use systems address these specialized needs by reducing capital costs of drugs and their time-to-market. R&D spending, increasing competition and new technologies are all serving to give the market new impetus. The advancements and the new product launches have influenced the market to grow in the foreseeable future. Acquisition strategies and collaborations by companies are covered in this report. This study also discusses the strength and weaknesses of each type/technology in light of the growing competition and changing customer needs.



The report offers a view on the necessity of implementing single-use techniques from the perspective of quality product development. This study looks at the growth of

single-use technology equipment manufacturers and users. Pharmaceutical, biotechnical companies and research institutes will find this study to be of interest.



The scope of this report includes the single-use technologies used in the bioprocessing industry. These are single-use bioreactors, membrane adsorbers, media bags, tubing

and connectors, bioprocess containers, disposable mixing systems, samplers, filter cartridges, depth filtration system, tangential flow filtration system and other

single-use products such as valves, clamps, etc. The report covers market application areas such as monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), vaccines, gene therapy, recombinant proteins, blood derivatives and anti-cancer drugs, and the market by end users, which include contract manufacturing organizations and biopharmaceutical manufacturers. Excluded from this report are control software and the custom-designed software used with single-use biopharmaceutical manufacturing technologies.


BCC Research analyzes each market from a global scope and its application, regulatory environment, technologies involved, market projections and market shares. The emerging market covers countries like India, China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, etc. Key restraints include leachables and extractables, cost constraints and breakage of bags. The report includes relevant patent analysis and comprehensive profiles of companies that lead the single-use technology market, such as EMD Millipore, GE Healthcare, Pall Corp., Sartorius Stedim Biotech and Thermo Fisher Scientific, among others.



Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in preparing this study. BCC Research conducted a comprehensive literature search, which included technical

newsletters and journals, and many other sources. Data were collected through interviews and correspondence with manufacturers of single-use processing experts. Projections were based on estimates such as the current number of end users, potential end users, mergers and acquisitions, and market trends.



Relevant data for this study were gathered from various industry sources, including manufacturers and end users of single-use technology. BCC Research spoke with industry officials, consulted newsletters, company literature, product literature, and technical articles, journals, indexes and abstracts. Exhaustive investigations of databases by key terminology were completed. In addition, data were compiled from current financial, trade and government sources.
