Summary and Highlights
Single-use technology products are playing a pivotal role in the biopharmaceutical industry. The expanding field of biopharmaceuticals is allowing manufacturers to focus on single-use technology products, which play important roles in the bioprocessing of a large number of products like vaccines, drugs, antibodies and proteins. With the rise of infectious diseases, there is an urgent need for better healthcare conditions to treat diseases.

The production of biopharmaceuticals requires handling living organisms and thus requires cleaning and sterilization to eliminate contaminants. In addition, the raw materials required for bioproduction need to undergo a quality check. With the change in healthcare systems around the world, there is an increased demand for drugs at reduced prices. This has resulted in the creation of pioneering techniques such as single-use technology to reduce capital investment without sacrificing production rates and quality.

In the last decade, the overall single-use technology market has witnessed a tremendous increase in the usage of novel products. The focus of the companies is to enhance the production of life saving moieties by using advancement in technologies in order to provide better quality of treatment and therapies. In addition, increased government spending in biopharmaceutical sector is also expected to support the growth of the market.

The single-use technology market includes single-use bioreactors, membrane adsorbers, disposable filter cartridges, tubing and connectors, media bags, bioprocess containers, depth filtration systems, tangential flow filtration systems, samplers, single-use mixers and other single-use products.
