Viruses are small infectious agents or particles that are undesired, especially in pharmaceuticals industry, which need to be removed for drug sterility. Filtration is the removal of viruses, with advantages such as easy operability and minimal damage to the products. Recent examples of virus contamination, for instance, hepatitis A form contaminated Factor VIII have gained attention towards virus removal. Virus filtration is generally performed at the end of the purification step of any process. Virus filters act as a protecting medium or barrier for bioreactors by filtering buffer solutions and media. The growth of pharmaceuticals industries and helping hands of government towards these pharmaceuticals and biotechnology industries plays important role in growth of virus filtration market.
Factors driving the world virus filtration market are the rise in R&D expenditure, increase in therapeutics contamination by viruses, adoption of single-use technologies, and government support.
