Progressing tissue engineering technologies, development of orphan drugs, and growing antibodies production are also identified as the typical trends which are significantly driving the bioreactors market share. Biopharma manufacturers, CMOs (Contract manufacturing organizations) and R&D organizations are the three predominant end-use industries in the worldwide bioreactor market. Holding more than 30% of overall bioreactor industry share in 2016, biopharmaceutical manufacturers have enabled effective drug delivery systems and combination products. The bioreactor industry is likely to spectate growing collaborations in biopharmaceutical sector through strategic partnerships with diagnostic developers, medical device manufacturers, and even academic institutions.

One such example is of Sartorius Stedim Biotech, a leading global supplier in the biopharmaceutical industry acquisition of U.S. start-up kSep Holdings, Inc. in 2016.  kSep Systems leverages its innovation and engineering expertise to develop automated centrifugation systems which are widely used in manufacturing of monoclonal antibodies, cell-based therapeutics, and vaccines. This USD 28 million deal successfully expanded Sartorius’ bioprocessing solutions portfolio.
