Global membrane chromatography market Report Segment Insights:
Based on techniques, the global membrane chromatography market is divided into ion exchange membrane chromatography, affinity film chromatography, and hydrophobic interaction membrane chromatography. Ion exchange membrane chromatography is set to have a rapid growth in the forecasted period. Extensive utilization of ion exchange membrane chromatography in virus purification and anti-body polishing applications, is providing lucrative opportunities in the market. It possesses numerous advantages such as rapid processing, disposable nature, scalability, robustness, reduce battery consumption, scalability, good report, and a validation free environment. Both the segments are also benefitted due to rising use of cartridges and capsules for the purification applications in process development processes, manufacturing, and large-scale production. In terms of operation modes, the market is fragmented into flow-through membrane chromatography and bind-elute membrane chromatography. The flow-through membrane chromatography is expected to be the dominating segment in the forecasted period. The growth of this operational mode is due to the wide use of flow-through technology for monoclonal antibody polishing processes. It has various benefits including high flow rate and reduced mass transfer resistance, and better process efficiency and cost advantages. On the basis of regions, the global membrane chromatography market is segmented into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, the Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. North America is the leading market in the segment.
