Single-use assemblies also known as disposable assemblies are single-use components used in biopharmaceutical manufacturing for applications like filtration, mixing, storage, and transfer of intermediate and final drug products. These assemblies reduce the complexity and costs associated with cleaning and sterilization of traditional stainless-steel equipment. The global Single Use Assemblies Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 13 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 17% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key Trends:
ontinuous adoption of continuous manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industry has been a key factor driving the growth of the single use assemblies market. Continuous manufacturing allows for real-time monitoring and control of the manufacturing process which reduces production time and costs significantly. Assemblies with single use components are ideal for continuous manufacturing applications as they eliminate the need for cleaning and sterilization between batches. This enhances process flexibility and speed. Growing preference for continuously manufactured biopharmaceutical drugs is expected to further propel the demand for single use assemblies during the forecast period.
Strength: The global single use assemblies market offers benefits such as lower risk of cross-contamination, reduced cleaning validation requirements and lower capital investments.
Weakness: Single use assemblies can be more expensive than traditional stainless steel assemblies over the long run due to disposability. Supply chain issues and raw material shortages also pose challenges.
Opportunity: Growing biopharmaceutical industry, increasing R&D investment in cell and gene therapy and supportive regulatory guidelines are driving demand for single use assemblies. Advent of advanced materials will further support market growth.
Threats: Environmental concerns around plastic waste generation and stringent regulations around its disposal may hamper the market. Strong bargaining power of large players impact pricing and supply.
The Global Single Use Assemblies Market Growth is expected to witness high growth over the forecast period supported by increasing demand from biopharmaceutical industry.
Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at fastest pace during the forecast period due to rising biomanufacturing activities, increasing government support and presence of emerging contract manufacturing hubs in countries like China, Japan and South Korea.
