Biopharma Buffer Market

Biopharma Buffer Market is Estimated To Witness High Growth Owing to Increasing Demand for Biologics

The Biopharma Buffer Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 3.68 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.1% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:
Biopharma buffers are aqueous solutions consisting of salts and acids or bases that are used in biopharmaceutical manufacturing to maintain and stabilize the optimum pH of biological products. Biopharma buffers help maintain biological products at their optimum pH level and prevent them from undergoing undesirable chemical changes during purification, transportation, and storage. They play a vital role in cell culture, downstream processing, analytical applications, and final drug formulation.

Market key trends:
Biopharma buffers market is witnessing high growth owing to the increasing demand for biologics. Biologics have complex molecular structures which require controlled pH environments for stability. As biologics production is increasing significantly, the demand for high-quality buffers to maintain stability at each stage of biopharma manufacturing is also increasing. Furthermore, advancements in continuous bioprocessing is another key trend spurring the demand for buffers, as continuous biomanufacturing requires precisely pH-controlled liquid handling at each stage for consistent outputs. Wide use of buffers in bioprocessing, analytical testing, and formulations is expected to drive the biopharma buffer market substantially in the forecast period.
