Filtration is an important process in pharmaceutical, biotechnological, and bioscientific laboratories. Pharmaceutical filtration devices are widely used in drug manufacturing, research & development, and others. There are various types of filers available such as membrane filters, prefilters and depth media filters, and cartridge & capsule filters according to the requirement.

Increasing research and development activities for new drug development is expected to drive growth of the global pharmaceutical filters market in the near future

Pharmaceutical filters are widely used in research and development of new drugs, thus increasing R&D activities is expected to increase demand for pharmaceutical filters. According to International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & Associations, 2017, around 56 new medicines were launched in 2015, while over 7,000 compounds were at different stages of development, globally. The research-based pharmaceutical industry invested over US$ 149.8 billion on R&D per year, according to the same source. Growing generic and biologics manufacturing market is also expected to lead to high demand for pharmaceutical filters, as these are primarily used in drug manufacturing processes.
