The global transfer membrane market size was valued at USD 494.5 million in 2023, driven by the increasing investment in drug development across the globe. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period of 2024-2032, with the values likely to rise to USD 725.8 million by 2032.
A transfer membrane is used in molecular biology and biochemistry techniques to transfer proteins, DNA, RNA, or other biological elements from a gel matrix to a solid support so that further detection and analysis may be performed. It is also known as a blotting membrane. Transfer membranes are available in different pore sizes, which may differ based on molecule being transferred. It can be made of nitrocellulose or PDVF, as they compatible with protein and nucleic acid bindings. The gel electrophoresis process plays a critical role in transfer membrane process.
After the COVID-19 outbreak, the demand for diagnostic tests has significantly increased. The rising investments to expediate drug and vaccine development has seen an upswing, accredited to high occurrence of genetic diseases. As a result, the transfer membrane market value has grown owing to its crucial involvement in the study of diseases, drug development as well as diagnostic tests.
The transfer membranes hold immense significance in pharmaceutical industry for protein purification and analysis. This has led to novel innovations, aimed at fostering quality outcomes. One such common example is the launch of Immobilon® NOW by Merck. This is a transfer membrane roll which allows features like single-cut convenience, minimal waste, compact packaging to save space in the research lab and compatibility with mini or midi gels.
As per research, it has been indicated that PVDF membrane type has more advantages over nitrocellulose. They are compatible with several detection chemistries including chemogenic, radioactive, fluorescent, and chemiluminescent techniques. Therefore, to meet the high demand, Merck has four different types of PVDF membranes under the Immobilon® membranes section. These membranes offer high protein binding and durability, which is set to cater to the high transfer membrane market demand in upcoming years.
