The blow-fill-seal equipment is used for the forming and packaging of containers. The forming, packaging and sealing is carried out in only one machine without any human interventions. This key factor is useful for the packaging of products in the contamination-free environment. The blow-fill-seal equipment is suitable for the pharmaceutical packaging due to the high speed operation and aseptic packaging. The global blow-fill-seal equipment market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.9% by the end of the forecast period.
Modern BFS technology is considered an advanced Aseptic Processing technology and is widely accepted by the regulatory authorities (FDA, USP, and EMEA). The Food and Drug Administration's (FDA's) has characterized blow-fill-seal equipment as an “advanced aseptic processor."
From the invention of the blow-fill-seal equipment, the equipment is primarily used for the pharmaceutical packaging. The high cost and complex operating standards are restraining the adaptation of blow-fill-seal equipment in the industries other than the pharmaceutical industry. It is essential that packaging of drugs and medicines is done in a clean room and away from the dust and moisture. The blow-fill-seal equipment is equipped with clean room technology. The food and drug authority permitted blow-fill-seal equipment as suitable equipment for pharmaceutical packaging. The ampoules, vials, bottles and prefilled syringes are mainly packaged in the blow-fill-seal equipment.
The blow-fill-seal equipment is expensive, but it can be economical for the high production output as compared to traditional aseptic packaging. The contract packaging companies in the pharmaceutical industry are adopting the blow-fill-seal equipment due to the properties such as performance and output speed. The pharmaceutical industry uses blow-fill-seal equipment as it require less labor/human resource for the packaging. Pharmaceutical companies adopt the blow-fill-seal equipment due to the availability of packaging in many size of containers. The blow-fill-seal equipment can produce small (0.1 ml) and large size (more than 1 liter) liquid filled containers in the aseptic environment. The production of smaller batch sizes is achieved by the blow-fill-seal equipment, which is important in the pharmaceutical industry. The all packaging processes in one system is helpful to reduce the time taken in manufacturing. The integrated filling system in the blow-fill-seal equipment is contributes in reduction of waste of the pharmaceutical ingredient.
The blow-fill-seal equipment is acceptable globally for the pharmaceutical packaging. The APEJ is the largest user of blow-fill-seal equipment for pharmaceutical packaging purpose followed by North America and Western Europe. Chinese and Indian pharmaceutical packaging companies are primary consumers of the blow-fill-seal equipment in the APEJ market. The global key manufacturer of drugs and medicines are focusing on APEJ region for establishing the manufacturing plants, due to which the demand for pharmaceutical blow-fill-seal equipment is increasing.
The blow-fill-seal equipment manufacturers are focussing on the development of the pharmaceutical blow-fill-seal equipment instead of other end-user segments. The key manufacturers such as Rommelag and Weiler Engineering are also focusing only on the aseptic blow-fill-seal equipment for the pharmaceutical industry. The manufacturers and suppliers of aseptic packaging lines are engaged in the development of blow-fill-seal equipment which can perform additional functions such as feeding and labeling. The leading manufacturer of blow-fill-seal equipment, Sidel S.A. has developed the model which can operates five functions such as feeding, blowing, filling, sealing and labeling. The manufacturers are improving the blow-fill-seal equipment which consumes less human and energy resources. The sole purpose of research and development in the blow-fill-seal equipment is to minimize the overall cost of packaging.
