Lyophilization Equipment Market Overview:

The global lyophilization equipment market size was valued at $5015.2 million in 2020 and is projected to reach $10615.7 million by 2030 registering a CAGR of 7.80% from 2021 to 2030. Lyophilization involves freeze drying of products. In pharmaceutical industries, this process is widely used to increase the shelf-life of antibiotics, vaccines, and protein-based drugs. Biopharmaceutical companies are using lyophilization services to keep APIs and drugs sterile. Focus toward enhanced manufacturing practices is increasing the demand for lyophilization services.

Increase in demand for lyophilized products and preserved food drive the growth of the lyophilization equipment market. In addition, increase in production of protein-based drugs, injectable and biopharmaceuticals in biopharmaceutical companies that need the lyophilization equipment to give better stability, longer shelf life and broader range of temperature further fuel growth of the market. Furthermore, technological advancements in lyophilization equipment to enhance the scalability and quality of end products and reduce the time taken for the process are projected to further boost the growth of the market. However, growing utilization of alternative drying techniques in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, high setup and maintenance cost of freeze-drying equipment and strict regulatory guidelines are expected to hinder growth of the market during the forecast period. In addition, lack of skilled workforce further hamper growth of the market. On the other hand, rise in the contract lyophilization and manufacturing services are expected to offer profitable opportunities for growth of the market during the forecast period.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has disrupted workflows in the healthcare sector around the world. The disease has forced a number of industries to shut down temporarily, including several sub-domains of health care. However, there has been a positive impact on some services including lyophilization equipment as lyophilization technique, which is used by researchers for Sars-CoV-2 virus vaccines such as mRNA-LNP SARS-CoV-2 vaccines to improve stability of vaccine.

Lyophilization is a powerful technique that is being employed by researchers as the scientific community strives to stabilize the Sars-CoV-2 virus vaccines such as mRNA-LNP SARS-CoV-2 vaccines to aid in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, according to an article published in National Library of Medicine in April 2021, as the presence of water initiates degradation reactions in mRNA-LNPs, lyophilization is expected to be a logical step to improve the long-term stability of mRNA-LNP formulations. The head of viral vaccines research at Pfizer, Philip Dormitzer, has already mentioned Pfizer’s aspiration to use lyophilization for mRNA-LNP SARS-CoV-2 vaccines (Dolgin, 2020). Moreover, a lyophilized form of an mRNA-based cytomegalovirus vaccine (mRNA-1647) is used in a phase 2 clinical trial. It has a claimed shelf life at 5 °C of ≥ 18 months. Hence, the outbreak of COVID-19 has positively impacted the lyophilization equipment market.
