BPSA Releases Market Data to Benchmark Performance of Single-Use Systems (SUS)

ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bio-Process Systems Alliance (BPSA) today announced the publication of a 20-page Market Data Report – A Data-Driven Assessment of Single-Use System Reliability: 2016-2018. 

"BPSA-members understand the need to publish market data as a resource for business planning and to benchmark performance," said BPSA Executive Director Kevin Ott. "Quantifying 'business intelligence' is a critical role for non-profit industry groups such as BPSA, and our Alliance is proud to now add Market Data reports to our value portfolio for the benefit of our 60 member organizations."

The report, funded and overseen by members of BPSA, used a confidential third-party to undertake this priority project that now allows SUS end-users to quantitatively assess the overall performance of SUS in order to make comprehensive business decisions.

Additionally, this initiative allows each SUS supplier to benchmark their own performance against industry averages. Both end-users and suppliers can then target improvement initiatives toward complaint rate categories that align with their specific business or quality goals. Through initiatives of this sort, BPSA aims to enable industry-wide improvements in SUS reliability. 

The five product categories covered in the report are:

  • 2D & 3D Bioreactors
  • 3D Storage and Transport Bag Assemblies
  • 2D Storage and Transport Bag Assemblies
  • Transfer (Tube) Sets
  • Mixing Bag Assemblies

Nine aggregated complaint categories are also covered, totaling 135 individual data points across three years, all illustrated in the report.

At the discretion of BPSA members, publication of additional aggregated data is planned in 2020, covering units shipped and industry growth rates and trends.
