Category-wise Insights

Which Transfer Membrane Type is Most Popular?

“PVDF Transfer Membranes to Have Dominant Outlook”

PVDF transfer membranes are highly popular owing to their wide scope of application in western blotting techniques. Beneficial characteristic properties of PVDF transfer membranes such as better chemical compatibility, higher membrane strength, and better protein retention will also drive segment growth over the decade.

Transfer membrane producing companies are focusing on developing improved PVDF transfer membranes to boost their sales and revenue generation potential, and key market players are promoting their proven product portfolio to strengthen their market stance. Bio-Rad PVDF transfer membranes are used frequently across the global landscape.

The PVDF transfer membrane market is projected to exhibit expansion at 1.9% CAGR from 2022 to 2032 and account for a market value of US$ 125.9 million by the end of the forecast period.

Immobilon transfer membranes are also gaining popularity as they are capable of binding proteins that are transferred from various gel matrices. They are microporous PVDF transfer membranes and are hydrophobic with a high binding capacity.

COVID-19 Impact Evaluation

The world witnessed a major unprecedented outbreak of coronavirus in 2020 and this led to a paradigm shift in world activity. A pandemic of such epic proportions had a negative impact on the world economy, which, in turn, caused several markets to topple under pressure from lockdown restrictions across the world.

The transfer membrane market took a hit amidst the COVID-19 pandemic as several research and development projects were closed due to lockdown restrictions. All of the research was focused on developing vaccines for coronavirus, which kept the transfer membrane market afloat to a certain extent; however, for a major part, the industry experienced a negative growth trend.

Demand for transfer membranes is predicted to rise at a slow CAGR in the post-pandemic era but will see some good opportunities owing to increasing investments in the R&D sector by public and private institutions alike.
