For instance, single-use bioreactors are emerging as a key technology in the field of pharmaceuticals. In March 2021, Thermo Fisher rolled out 3,000 and 5,000 L single-use bioreactors (S.U.B). The first-of-its-size 5,000 L S.U.B. is Thermo’s largest commercially available S.U.B., enabling biopharmaceutical companies to integrate single-use technologies into large-scale bioprocesses, including perfusion cell culture and cGMP manufacturing at very high cell density.

Increasing demand for biologics across the globe is expected to boost growth of the global single-use bioreactor market over the forecast period. For instance, the increase in the development of biologics around the world has led to an increase in demand for SUBs. In November 2022, Juvena Therapeutics, Inc. raised US$ 41 million in an oversubscribed Series A, bringing its total funding to US$ 50 million. The new funding will power the expansion of Juvena’s drug discovery platform and advance the company’s biologics pipeline targeting chronic and age-related diseases. This in turn is driving the single-use bioreactor market growth.

Global Single-Use Bioreactor Market Opportunities:

Rising burden of chronic and infectious disease across the world is expected to offer significant growth opportunities for players in the single-use bioreactor market. For instance, bioreactors have been used for decades to produce a range of therapeutics, showing promise for the treatment of many acute and chronic diseases. Chronic diseases are the leading causes of death and disability worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cardiovascular diseases account for most NCD deaths, or 17.9 million people annually, followed by cancers (9.3 million), chronic respiratory diseases (4.1 million), and diabetes (2.0 million).

Outbreak of COVID-19 around the world is expected to provide significant growth opportunities for players in the global single-use bioreactor market. For instance, bioreactors are being widely used in cell culture-based viral vaccine production, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. In September 2020, ABEC delivered six 4,000L CSR bioreactors to Serum Institute of India to speed up the production of NVX CoV2373, Novavax’ COVID-19 vaccine candidate. Moreover, Serum Institute had used ABEC’s single-use technology to accelerate supply of NVX CoV2373 throughout India and other low- and middle-income countries.
