Sterility Testing Market Dynamics

Drivers: Rising expansion of pharmaceutical & biopharmaceutical production capacities

In pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries, sterility testing is conducted at all manufacturing stages to minimize the risk of product contamination. Subsequently, the growth of this end-use industry in the coming years will considerably boost the utilization of sterility testing.

The production capacity expansion of pharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals worldwide will augment the demand for sterility testing products and services. Sterility testing is mandatory during the production process of pharmaceuticals and biopharmaceuticals. Therefore, the rising production capacities of pharmaceutical & biopharmaceutical companies will drive the adoption of additional kits, reagents, and instruments for sterility tests.

For instance:

In 2022, Novartis (Switzerland) invested USD 300 million to bolster the capacity and capabilities for next-generation bio-therapeutics across Switzerland, Slovenia, and Austria.

In 2022, Eli Lilly and Company (US) invested USD 1.5 billion to establish two new manufacturing facilities: Concord, NC, and Limerick, Ireland. Of the total investment, the company aims to invest USD 500 million, specifically in Limerick, to create a new biologics active ingredients site.

Restraints: Growing adoption of single-use technology

Single-use technology substitutes the stainless-steel and hard-piped configurations used in aseptic processing and sterile manufacturing. Gamma-irradiated pre-assembled process systems are used under single-use technology. Such technology is used for aseptic filling as well as upstream & downstream processing. The main benefit of SUT is that time and money are not invested in labor-intensive and expensive cleaning, sterilization validation tests, or their recurring revalidation. Moreover, it eliminates system cleaning and sterilization requirement between batches. Adopting such technologies will hamper the demand for sterility testing products and services.

However, the chances of human error will continue, even if closed systems and single-use technology are used more frequently. Personnel continues to be the principal source of contamination for pharmaceutical & biopharmaceutical formulations that cannot be terminally sterilized. Thus, a thorough training program is essential. When adhering to GMP and quality standards, operator comprehension is a crucial factor.

Opportunities: Emerging markets

Emerging markets such as Brazil, India, and China are expected to present significant opportunities for the growth of the market. This can mainly be attributed to increased R&D funding for research in these countries. For instance, China & current healthcare expenditure (% of GDP) went from 5.1% in 2017 to 5.4% in 2019. Similarly, for India, the healthcare expenditure rose from 2.9% in 2017 to 3.0% in 2019, while for Brazil, it was 9.5% in 2017 and increased to 9.6% in 2019. (Source: World Bank)

Moreover, CDMOs and CROs based in emerging markets offer cost-efficient development and manufacturing services to pharma & biotech companies. Sterility testing is a mandatory step in pharmaceutical drug discovery & development. Therefore, the growing production capacities of CROs and CDMOs in emerging nations will augment the demand for sterility testing products and services. A few examples of such capacity expansions are as follows:

  • In August 2022, Samsung Biologics announced plans to build a second biopharmaceutical campus, named Bio Campus II, at Songdo, Incheon, South Korea
  • In July 2022, Wuxi Biologics announced a USD 1.4 billion investment for expanding its research, development, and large-scale drug substance and drug product manufacturing capacity and capabilities in Singapore.
