Blow fill seal (BFS) technology is used to fill a variety of liquids from small to large volumes into containers. The technology is more prevalent in the pharmaceutical, food, and beverage processing and many more industries. The BFS technology has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for sage in a superior form of aseptic processing for producing medicines of pharmaceutical and healthcare products.

The technology consists of various processes including extrusion, molding, sealing, filling in a single process without the use of any external intervention. The fully automatic BFS technology includes a process for filling and sealing in a single process which provides maximum process and product reliability with precision filling.

Hence blow fill seal (BFS) technology is preferred in a wide variety of applications including pharmaceuticals, cosmetic creams, nutraceuticals, food & beverages, and many others.

Market Dynamics:

The market is driven by the rising demand for blow fill seal (BFS) technology for reducing human intervention by reducing the risk of microbial contamination and foreign particulates in the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals. BFS technology is widely accepted for continuous filling of pharmaceutical liquid, drugs in small containers, as well as larger volume containers such as dextrose and saline solutions.

According to the (IFPMA) in 2020, the global pharmaceutical market estimated to reach approximately US$ 1,430 billion. It propels the demand for the BFS technology market used in the manufacturing of pharmaceutical drugs. However high cost of automation requires the blow fill seal (BFS) technology hinders the market growth.

There is rising technological advancement for rapid, more accurate, and risk-free, automated blow fills seal technology by mitigating human intervention has created a huge opportunity for this market. For instance on 26th March Jefferies Financial Group supported ApiJect Systems America (ApiJect), a public-benefit corporation the first private-sector company.

The support is provided for developing a high-volume packaging solution using advanced technology of a new consortium called Rapid Aseptic Packaging of Injectable Drugs (RAPID) with the help of Blow-Fill-Seal (BFS) technology. It helps to surge capacity “to fill and finish, on a rapid basis, with hundreds of millions of prefilled syringes to respond quickly during health emergencies such as the novel coronavirus outbreak.

Segment Analysis

The global blow fills seal (BFS) technology market is segmented based on the product, raw materials, technology, capacity, end-user, and region.

In terms of product, the global blow fill seal (BFS) technology market is bifurcated into bottles, ophthalmic and inhalation, syringes and injectable, vials, drugs, ampoules, and others. Among these bottles, the segment has the highest market share in 2019 for the BFS technology market owing to rising demand for bottles for several purposes including for drinking, medicines, food & beverages, etc. Similarly, ophthalmic and inhalation, syringes and injectable, vials, drugs, ampoules segments are also growing at a faster pace owing to rising the demand for syringes, vials, drugs due to the rising prevalence of infectious diseases. According to Worldometer Data, the global prevalence of coronavirus infection reached more than 27.49 million cases with 0.89 million deaths. This has been propelled the demand for syringes, injectable, drugs, ophthalmic and inhalation devices to cure the Covid-19 patients.

Depending upon the raw material, the global BFS technology market is divided into Low-density polyethylene (LDPE), Polypropylene, and others. Among this Polypropylene, the segment has the highest market share owing to rising consumption in the manufacturing of the pharmaceutical, food, and beverages plastic cans, bottles, and many others.

Similarly, the low-density polyethylene (LDPE) segment is also growing at a faster pace owing to raising the demand for LDPE for packing fast-moving consumer goods including milk, dairy products, and cold drinks using BFS technology.

Based on the technology, the global BFS technology market is segmented into fully automatic, semi-automatic, and manual. Among these fully automatic BFS technology has the highest market share owing to raising its usage in the pharmaceutical industries to avoid contaminations by mitigating human intervention while manufacturing drugs and medicines.

Similarly, semi-automatic and manual segments are also growing owing to increasing the demand for food & beverages and personal healthcare products around the globe.

In terms of capacity, the global BFS technology market is segmented into Small Volume (0.1 ml to 100 mL) and large-volume (above 100 mL). Among this small volume, the segment has the highest market share owing to increasing demand for personal care products including eye drops, medicines, inhalation, syringes, injectables, vials, and ophthalmics.

Similarly, large volume (above 100 mL) segments are also growing at a faster pace owing to rising demand for the food & beverages industries.

Depending on the end-user, the global Blow Fill Seal (BFS) Technology market is divided into food & beverages, pharmaceutical, personal care, and others.
