Aseptic Packaging

As Quoted In Dairy Reporter

Growth in US aseptic packaging demand will be driven by drug sterility requirements and ambient distribution and storage advantages for food and beverages.

US demand to rise 8% annually through 2015

Demand for aseptic packaging is projected to expand 8.0 percent per year to $5.1 billion in 2015, outpacing overall packaging demand. In unit terms, demand is expected to expand 4.1 percent annually to 52.4 billion. Growth will be driven by drug sterility requirements and distribution and storage advantages for food and beverages.

Dominant pharmaceutical market to lead gains

Through 2015, demand for aseptic packaging in the dominant pharmaceutical market is forecast to advance 8.4 percent annually to $3.4 billion. Growth will reflect the broadening availability and consumption of biotechnology-based drugs, and aseptic filling requirements with other liquid pharmaceuticals. Additionally, opportunities will be driven by preferences among health care providers for unit-dose delivery formats, such as vials, ampuls, prefillable syringes and premixed IV solutions, for increased dosing accuracy.

Growth for aseptic packaging in the beverage market will be supported by consumption trends in beverages that tend to be packaged aseptically, along with cost and environmental benefits, especially in terms of ambient shipping and storage. Gains in the food market will be driven by shelf-stability advantages, as well as by expanding applications in liquid, lowparticulate and pumpable foods, often supplanting metal cans and glass jars.

Prefillable syringes to be fastest growing product

The ongoing commercialization of biotechnology-based drugs will fuel above-average demand growth for aseptic vials and ampuls, and prefillable syringes, which are prevalent delivery systems for these drugs. Prefillable syringes will represent the fastest growing aseptic packaging product type through 2015, with demand projected to expand 11.0 percent yearly to $1.1 billion. Moreover, opportunities for aseptic prefillable syringes will benefit from safety and convenience advantages and the prevalence of chronic conditions necessitating lifetime drug regimens.

Though aseptic carton prospects will be moderated by slow unit demand growth in fruit beverage applications, robust increases are expected in other uses based on favorable consumption trends in ready-to-drink wellness-type beverages, improving aesthetics and the perception that products packaged in these containers are of higher quality than those in other container types. Safety concerns regarding bisphenol-A (BPA), a chemical used as an inner coating in metal cans, will fuel increased interest in BPA-free alternatives such as aseptic cartons. Continued opportunities are anticipated for aseptic bags and pouches, especially for bag-in-box and other large bags sold to the foodservice and food processing industries.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $3.5 billion US aseptic packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product (e.g., plastic bottles, vials and ampuls, prefillable syringes, bags and pouches, cartons, cups, glass bottles) and market (e.g., pharmaceuticals, beverages, food).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 34 industry competitors, including Tetra Pak, Becton Dickinson and West Pharmaceutical Services.
