San Francisco, California, May 22, 2017 : TMR Research notes down the key factors of influence currently affecting the demand for aseptic processing solutions, in “Aseptic Processing Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast 2017 – 2025.” Aseptic packaging implies the use of processes and materials that promote a completely sterile and aseptic packaging of products. One of the key applications of aseptic packaging comes from the global pharmaceutical industry due to a high priority given to the sterile packaging for drugs and medicines. Sterility is often obtained through a process known as flash heating, where the packaging undergoes a rapid increase in temperature which can help reduce empty spaces between packaging and product, while maintaining the nutritive qualities of the product. This also employs a lower rate of energy consumption as opposed to methods such as retort, canning, or hot-fill methods.
One of the leading factors promoting the growth of the global aseptic processing market is the increasing preference of eco-friendly packaging. Despite the complications faced by eco-friendly packaging in the context of terminal sterilization as well as canning, the growing demand for it from convenience foods manufacturers and pharmaceutical suppliers is creating a spur in the rate of technological advancements. Aseptic processing allows longer shelf life and therefore generates a greater demand. While the cost of aseptic processing can be higher than conventional processing, the increasing disposable income of consumers can create a heightened demand for various products, driving the global aseptic processing market.
Players in the global aseptic processing market are also expected to witness a high rate of growth over the coming years through improvements in their production capacities. The increased demand for aseptic processing of goods has required manufacturers to expand their business and production capacities in various regions. The cosmetics and dairy sectors are two additional segments that are demanding a greater volume of aseptic processing, thus pushing the growth of the market.
On the basis of geography, the global aseptic processing market can be said to be spurred over the coming years by the growing demand from the nations of China, India, Brazil, and Argentina. Emerging economies are therefore expected to play a pivotal role in the growth of the global aseptic processing market in the near future. This increase in demand can be attributed to the increasingly hectic lifestyle led by the growing urban populations in these regions. As their demand for ready-to-eat meals and modern pharmaceuticals increases, so does the scope of growth of players in the global aseptic processing market based in these regions.
The leading players in the global aseptic processing market at the moment, include JBT Corporation, Greatview Aseptic Packaging Co. Ltd., GEA Group, Amcor Limited, Becton, Dickinson and Co., GEA Group, Tetra Laval International S.A., E.I. Du Pont De Nemours and Company, and Robert Bosch GmbH.
