The Key Factors Who will Drives the Market Growth?
- Increasing demand for food preservation
- Rising demand for lyophilized products in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries
- Rapid growth in contract manufacturing and lyophilization services across the world
- Technological advancements in lyophilization methods
Freeze-Drying Equipment Market Growth Opportunities: Loss of patent protection of several biologics;
The biologics market is one of the major contributors to the growth of the freeze-drying market in the healthcare industry. Biosimilars are expected to drive the growth of the biotechnology industry in the next decade. This is because several key biologics are expected to lose their patent in the coming years.
An increasing number of biosimilars are being developed in the market as a cost-effective alternative for biopharmaceutical medications for chronic disorders. The growing R&D and emergence of biosimilars will drive the market for the lyophilization of biologics and biopharmaceutical products. In recent years, over 30% of US FDA-approved parenterals were lyophilized drugs. Soon, more than half of all injectable drugs will require lyophilization, which will further create the demand for lyophilization solutions in the pharmaceutical industry.
