Pharmaceutical filtration is the process of separation of solid particles by forcing the mixture through a porous medium and depositing the solid particle on the medium. It is one of the physical techniques for collecting solid particles in various industries along with pharmaceutical industry. Filtration process is utilized in many processes such as solvent & bulk filtration, air filtration, and water filtration. Protein-based drugs are nowadays widely used in inflammatory, infectious and cardiovascular diseases across the world. Increasing incidence of diabetes worldwide is contributing to the rising prevalence of these diseases. Thus, the rising demand of macromolecules such as proteins in the biopharmaceutical industry is likely to boost the growth of the global pharmaceutical filtration market. In addition, stringent regulatory protocols in manufacturing facilities has led to a high demand for pharmaceutical filtration techniques, which further contributes to the growth of the global pharmaceutical filtration market. However, challenges such as involvement of high costs and regulatory protocols for validation and qualification procedures are likely to hamper the market growth of pharmaceutical filtration.
