At the forefront of driving demand in the global blow fill seal (BFS) technology market is the burgeoning pharmaceutical industry. In 2015, the pharmaceutical industry accounted for almost 99% of the demand in the market. In the years ahead, the demand for BFS technology in the pharmaceutical sector is expected to rise further on account of the consumer’s need for user-friendly and flexible container designs. The food and beverage segment is also responsible for driving up demand to a great extent.
Of all PE materials, LDPE accounts for most of the demand. This is because of strong resistance to acid and bases and non-reactivity at room tem temperature. The HDPE segment is also slated to see solid demand in the years to come, on account of its high strength to density ratio, leading to reduced spillage.
Another factor serving to boost demand for the product is prevention from the reutilization of a product. Since pharmaceutical products manufactured leveraging BFS technology cannot be resealed, the proliferation of counterfeit products can be eliminated with the usage of the technology.
