Blow Fill Seal Technology Market

By using BFS technology, the plastic is blown, filled with the formulated product and sealed inside the machine continuously without any kind of external contamination. It is a fast, precise, and safe method for pharmaceutical filling and it uses lesser energy. The material used is often recyclable and more durable than glass. The machine is capable of producing different shapes according to the end user’s requirements. As BFS technology increases processing speed and supports contamination free packaging, this technology becomes a first choice of many end users.

The BFS technology finds application across diverse industries. However, pharmaceutical industry remains its key end user. Main products produced using this technology are the bottles, ampoules, vials and pre-filled syringes, etc. which are used in filling of medicines, vaccines, ophthalmic, respiratory, injectable drugs, wound care, and biologics. Apart from this, BFS technology has applications in food & beverage, cosmetic and personal care, and many other industries.

Blow Fill Seal Technology Aids in Curbing Medical Non Adherence Issues

Over the past two decades, medical adherence has created a very critical situation for healthcare & pharmaceutical industry.

  • For instance: in USA, according to FMI study, it has been noticed that ~40%-50% of prescribed medications are not taken by the patients appropriately. Along with this, according to a study conducted by the Intercontinental Medical Statistics (IMS) health, it has been noticed that the matter of not taking medicine appropriately at right time is costing patients more than $200 Bn.

To contain the issue, the pharmaceutical industry is continually making efforts for improving medication packaging. The industry is focusing on appropriate and easy packaging for ensuring the matter of “right dose at right time”.

Against this backdrop, the demand for technologies that can instruct the patients to take accurate dose in a timely manner is rising. Companies, especially in North America are adopting blow fill seal technology to help to ensure better drug intake in a single dose.
