This report studies the freeze drying equipment market over the forecast period of 2014 to 2019. The global freeze drying market is estimated to be worth $1,969.7 million by the end of 2014 and is expected to reach $2,655.9 million by 2019, at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2014 to 2019.
Today, a number of pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers are increasingly expanding their existing lyophilization capacities in order to enhance the lifespan of the high value products such as vaccines, antibodies, proteins, enzymes, hormones, blood plasma, and bacteria-derived compounds. In addition, there is an increasing adoption of technologically advanced lyophilization solutions in the pharmaceutical industry to minimize human intervention in the lyophilization process to avoid contamination risks for the high value pharmaceutical and biotech products. However, shortage of skilled personnel with the expertise to operate, maintain, and scale up lyophilization systems, expensive set up and maintenance costs of lyophilization systems, rising adoption of refurbished freeze drying systems by pharmaceutical companies for cost-cutting activities, emergence and increasing utilization of alternative drying techniques in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry, may restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period of 2014 to 2019.
In this report, the freeze drying market is segmented on the basis of different types of equipment and accessories, and geographies. This report also discusses the key market drivers, restraints, opportunities, and challenges for this market and its submarkets.
