Global Depth Filtration Market Trajectory & Analytics, 2021-2026 - Shifting Industrial Paradigms in Bioprocessing Spur Innovation in Depth Filtration -

November 8, 2021 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 8, 2021--

The “Depth Filtration - Global Market Trajectory & Analytics” report has been added to’s offering.

The global market for Depth Filtration estimated at US$1.8 Billion in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of US$2.9 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 8.3% over the analysis period.

Diatomaceous Earth, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to grow at a 9.2% CAGR to reach US$1.3 Billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Cellulose segment is readjusted to a revised 8.2% CAGR for the next 7-year period. This segment currently accounts for a 28.4% share of the global Depth Filtration market.


Depth filtration process is extensively used in downstream bioprocessing, for separating cells and cell debris and such other colloidal material from liquids. A wide range of filter sheet media are used for depth filtration for turbidity removal, polishing filtration, removal of chill haze, colloidal removal, removal of microorganisms like bacterial, yeast and mold, and microbial spoilage removal among others.

A major growth driver for the market is the rising large molecules and biologics production. Growing biopharmaceuticals demand combined with increasing expenditure on biopharmaceutical R&D drive market growth. The pharmaceutical industry is increasing demand for high quality and clean filter products for use in production of APIs and for filtering different buffers and media.

The filters are mainly used for downstream purification of turbid feed streams and cell culture centrates prior to loading them on chromatography columns. The market for depth filtration is also driven by increasing use of single-use or disposable filtration technologies. Depth filtration is a critical process required for manufacturing high quality and pure products.

Depth filters would also be extensively used in wastewater purification. Deep bed-sand filters are used in final stages in treatment of potable water. Growing emphasis on wastewater purification in countries across the world would therefore emerge as an important growth driver for the market over the coming years. Furthermore, depth filters are inexpensive and can be used easily, two other factors driving their increased adoption.


Moreover, technological advancements are leading to constant changes in designs of depth filters. Depth filters available today offer better filtration capabilities than the ones before. The market is witnessing increasing demand for lower capacity filters with higher density harvest. Manufacturers are presently making all efforts to meet this market demand. Manufacturers are also focused on developing synthetic polymer depth filters which can eliminate the current limitations with conventional cellulose media.
