Process Analytical Technology Market Dynamics

Drivers: Rising need for quality improvements in manufacturing processes

PAT instruments are robust tools used to analyze and control Critical Quality Attributes (CQAs) in pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturing processes by measuring Critical Process Parameters (CPPs). These tools are implemented to increase the efficiency of the production process to obtain quality products and improve the final product & overall performance. PAT allows continuous monitoring of pharmaceutical production by generating real-time product quality information and reduces final batch discarding or reprocessing. The technology aids in controlling costs in the manufacturing process and provides financial benefits through faster product release by eliminating post-production testing. It also reduces the cycle time and energy consumption to run the equipment. Automation in the process thus reduces the overall labor cost.

These benefits of PAT in improving manufacturing process efficiencies are expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.

Restraints: High cost of PAT deployment

The technological developments have increased the prices of these systems. For instance, the cost of a new spectroscopy instrument may vary from USD 75,000 to USD 500,000. The price for an HPLC system ranges from USD 10,000 to USD 40,000, while a dynamic light-scattering particle size analyzer may cost around USD 30,000 to USD 60,000, depending on the associated accessories. Despite the operational and cost-saving benefits of PAT implementation in the pharmaceutical industry, its adoption has been slow in emerging economies.

By product & service, analyzers segment accounted for the largest share of the process analytical technology market during the forecast period.

Process analytical products include analyzers, sensors & probes, and samplers, which are used in the R&D and manufacturing process to measure various quality attributes of a sample. The need for effective and efficient drug manufacturing processes, stringent regulations to provide assured product quality and performance, and a growing number of research and development activities in the biopharmaceutical industry are the major factors driving the demand for analyzers in drug manufacturing.

By technology, spectroscopy segment of the process analytical technology market, is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period.

Based on the type of technology, the global market has been classified into spectroscopy, chromatography, particle size analysis, capillary electrophoresis, and other technologies. The spectroscopy segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. Mass spectrometry (MS) is used to derive quantitative data for pharmacokinetic & pharmacodynamic drug development along with chromatography. Owing to the broad use of spectroscopy in qualitative and quantitative analysis of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products, the spectroscopy segment to register robust growth in near future.

In terms of application, large molecule segment of the process analytical technology market, to register the highest growth from 2022 to 2027

Based on application, the market is broadly segmented into small molecules, large molecules, manufacturing applications, and other applications. The large molecule segment to register the highest growth from 2022 to 2027. In recent years, biologics research has been at the forefront of drug development, offering treatment options for many medical conditions such as cancer, Rheumatic Arthritis, Psoriasis, Crohn's disease, and diabetes, among others. Thus, rising incidences of chronic diseases coupled with growing research for developing novel molecules to drive segment growth.
