Despite the driving factors, stringent government regulations & policies coupled with the high cost of the freeze-drying technique are estimated to negatively hamper the market growth. The rising utilization of alternative drying techniques, especially in the pharma and biotech sector is also expected to restrain the market growth. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the market experienced a negative impact due to challenges in the supply chain and manufacturing.

Growth Influencers:

Increasing demand for freeze-drying of new biologic drugs and injectable formulations

Biologics are complex and need to be processed as well as stored under strict quality control guidelines. They need specialized conditions for preserving the integrity of the drug’s activity. According to an article by PCI Synthesis, as of August 2019, about 16% of the top 100 drugs are lyophilized. As per the same source, the percentage of lyophilized biological drugs is more than 35%. Such rising demand for freeze-drying of new biologic drugs and injectable formulations is expected to boost market growth.

Increasing contract manufacturing and lyophilization services

Lyophilization services are adopted by biopharmaceutical companies for keeping their APIs and drugs sterile. Also, these companies adopt 2 ways for bringing their drugs to market. One of these ways is contract manufacturing. Contract manufacturing organizations require freeze-drying equipment for the transportation of the drugs. Therefore, the rising adoption of lyophilization services and contract manufacturing organizations is expected to boost market growth.
