According to a research report by Report Linker, the biopharmaceutical tubing market is expected to reach $6,013.27 million by 2028 from $3,442.82 million in 2021 registering an annual CAGR growth of 8.3%. An aging population and rising demand for minimally invasive procedures are contributing to this growth. Based on type, the global biopharmaceutical tubing market is segmented into plastic, metal and silicone. In 2020, the silicone segment held the largest share of the market. Based on application, the biopharmaceutical tubing market is segmented into pharmaceutical, medical devices, research and development, and others. The pharmaceutical segment held the largest market share in 2020, and it is further expected to be the largest shareholder in the market by 2028.
Fluid transfer is an essential part of pharmaceutical manufacturing processes, including the manufacturing of cough syrup and complex active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) such as vaccines or specific medications for cancer treatment, and the transfer process must be carried out in a highly regulated environment. Thus, with the growing emphasis on proper transfer tubing systems with escalating production capacities, the pharmaceutical industry demands ultra-pure and corrosion-resistant systems for liquid transfer that withstand the harsh environment of chemicals, which is bolstering the market growth of this segment.
“Our identical manufacturing facilities ensure high quality production in a cleanroom environment and a secure supply chain for customers. This is a reflection of Freudenberg’s commitment to providing the best and the safest tubing solutions. A dedicated sales and service team in India assures timely order processing and delivery,” added David Schwass.
