Blow-fill-seal Equipment is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.9% by the end of the forecast period 2022-2028

The global blow-fill-seal equipment market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.9% by the end of the forecast period (2022-2028). Growth in the market is underpinned by rapid development and advancement in packaging industries, coupled with rising application in diverse end-use sectors.

Increasing demand for aseptic packaging in the pharmaceutical industry is projected to be a critical factor driving the sales of blow-fill-seal equipment-required for packaging forms including vials, bottles, prefilled syringes, and ampoules. Moreover, unique ability of blow-fill-seal equipment to pack formulated drugs in clean and contamination free environment, without any human interface, thereby increasing the product safety, is also projected to increase the demand for blow-fill-seal equipment, during the assessment period 2022-2028.

Other than liquid filled containers, packaging of different types of ointments, gels, and food products including soft drinks and milk products, is also expected to influence the global blow-fill-seal equipment market. However, the pharmaceutical industry is evaluated to hold a lion’s share to the tune of nearly 90% of the global blow-fill-seal equipment market.

Ever since the inception of blow-fill-seal equipment, the technology has remained a sustainable process for packaging biological products, considering its aseptic nature and high automations and low production errors. Moreover, increasing pharmaceutical demands for efficient drug packaging through smaller batch size production, efficient time-to-market, and less API waste would also drive the blow-fill-seal equipment market.

Given the risks associated with glass vials and syringes, plastic for blow-fill-seal equipment is evaluated to dominate the global blow-fill-seal equipment market. Chances of either glass fragments entering the patient’s body or glass packaging breaking during production or transportation are some key factors complementing the demand for plastic containers made though blow-fill-seal technologies.

 To address packaging limitations including delamination (flaking) and breakage, the pharmaceutical industry is also moving towards alternative packaging formats like polymer containers, enabling a broad array of designs similar to blow-fill-seal packaging. Additionally, universal acceptance of blow-fill-seal equipment and technologies by various global authorities including FDA, EMEA, and USP will further boost the growth of global blow-fill-seal equipment market.

The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) has characterized blow-fill-seal technology as an advanced aseptic processing machine. Government and regulatory bodies’ positive nod to BFS technology in the packaging of liquid products is a critical factor driving the blow-fill-seal equipment market, globally. However, high initial set up cost including operator training, establishing technology-specific quality systems, allocation of validation resources is projected to restrict the sales of blow-fill-seal equipment in the global market”, Lead Analyst, Packaging Industry, Future Market Insights
