The global aseptic packaging market is expected to reach USD 85.47 billion by 2024, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Aseptic packaging allows the end –users to meet the consumer demand for sterile and safe food and pharmaceutical products. The technology offers extended shelf stability at ambient temperature, which eliminates the need for refrigeration. As a result, aseptic packaging is expected to witness high demand from the foodservice entities and retailers.
The aseptic packaging manufacturers supply their product either in the form of rolls or blanks. The roll-fed filling technique dominates the market and has been adopted by the major manufacturers such as Tetra Pack. Whereas, companies such as Elopak and SIG have adopted the blank filled systems. These two technologies are not interchangeable since the process and equipment associated with these two methods are different. As a result, buyers are unable to switch from one process to other. High capital investment is likely to be a key restraining factor for the industry.
