The demand for single use products is increasing and fueling growth of the global bioseparation systems market. Blockbuster biologics are going off patent, leaving the market open for developing and manufacturing low cost biosimilars. The Asian countries of India, Singapore, South Korea and China are fast becoming biomanufacturing hubs, producing biosimilars for their own large populations and for Southeast Asia.

Bioseparation systems can be categorized into three types: chromatography, membranes/filters and centrifuges. In this report, each is examined in detail, including market size, drivers and restrictors, competitors and technology. In 2013, chromatography will contribute $1.8 billion to the global bioseparation systems market. Membranes/filters will contribute $1.4 billion, followed by centrifuges ($400 million).
