VALLEY COTTAGE, New York, July 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

In North America, pharmaceutical

companies are extensively employing blow fill seal (BFS) technology to facilitate their need for unit dose packaging. A greater demand for unit dose packaging in pharmaceutical industries is prevalent in other parts of the world, as well. Latin American
countries such as Brazil and Mexico are witnessing a shift from conventional packaging to advanced pharmaceutical packaging, wherein unit dose packaging solutions are gaining preference. Through BFS technology, unit dose packaging solutions can improve patient adherence to prescribed drug regime. In addition to this, packaging companies are actively adopting blow fill seal machines due to their low energy consumption, reduced waste generation, and an overall low carbon imprint.

Prefilled Syringes & Injectables - Top-selling Products of BFS Technology 

With the use of blow fill seal technology, packaging companies are improving the flexibility of products namely, bottles, ampules, vials, and prefilled syringes & injectables. The report estimates that towards the end of 2027, more than 14 billion units of products developed by BFS technology will be sold across the globe. Among these, the sales of prefilled syringes & injectables will be considerably higher. Throughout the forecast period, nearly three-fourth of global BFS technology market value will be accounted by sales of prefilled syringes and injectables.

The report also projects a steadfast rise in adoption of polypropylene as raw material. In 2017, over US$ 1.1 Bn worth of BFS products sold in the global market will made from polypropylene. However, in terms of revenue share, the global market for BFS technology is anticipated to witness dominance of polyethylene materials. With more than 60% share on global revenues, polyethylene materials will be a widely-preferred raw material in the global blow fill seal technology market, however, their adoption will incur a marginal decline towards the latter half of the forecast period.

North America - Largest Market for BFS Technology  

A key highlight of the report reveals that pharmaceutical packaging is the outright dominant end-use of BFS technology. While the adoption of blow fill seal machines is likely to gain momentum in the food & beverage industry, pharmaceutical end-use of BFS technology will procure over 97% share on global market, throughout the forecast period. Thriving pharmaceutical sectors across countries such as the UK, Canada, India, China and the US are likely to boost the market's growth to a significant degree.
