One of the major factors propelling the demand for laboratory filtration technology across the world is the soaring utilization of laboratory filtration products in the food and beverage industry. Membrane filtration processes are bring increasingly incorporated in the food and beverage industry owing to their extremely high efficiency in clarification, fractionation, concentration, and purification methods. Due to the incorporation of these highly effective methods, the quality of the food items increases drastically.
The other major factor fuelling the growing demand for laboratory filtration techniques is the development of cost-effective, highly efficient, and technologically advanced filtration products. For instance, the membrane filters help in retaining particulate matter on the smooth membrane surfaces. In addition to this, the numerous types of syringe filters offered by Sartorius AG such as the Minisart syringes are used for removing particulate matter and microorganisms from gases, liquids, and air.
Driven by the above-mentioned factors, the global laboratory filtration market, which generated revenue of $2.3 billion in 2017, is further expected to attain valuation of $3.5 billion by 2023. The market is also predicted to progress at a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period (2018–2023). Most of the filtration activities in laboratories are accomplished via a membrane that utilizes a physical barrier such as a filter or a membrane for separating the unwanted particles from a fluid.
Therefore, it can be said without any hesitation that due to the increasing requirement of advanced filtration methods, products, and technologies in a plethora of industries such as food and beverage and pharmaceuticals and the surging healthcare expenditure in several countries, the demand for laboratory filtration technologies will observe tremendous growth in the coming years.
