Global Aseptic Pharma Processing Equipment Market- Overview

Aseptic pharma processing is a technique of packaging commercially thermally sterilizing liquid products, mainly pharmaceuticals into sterilized containers under a sterile environment to make the product shelf-stable that doesn't need to be refrigerated.This process involves ensuring the product is free of impurities/contaminantsand thus minimizing the risk of infection among patients. Under this process, the air supply, materials, equipment, etc., are regulated to control microbial and particulate contamination to acceptable levels.

 

Global Aseptic Pharma Processing Equipment Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing Use of Robotics in Aseptic Processing

Pharmaceutical manufacturing companies are increasingly incorporating robotics into their processes in order to minimize the physical contact of personnel so as to maintain maximum protection against microbial contamination. Robotic integration is gaining huge popularity in the pharmaceutical industry for the primary packaging of RTU containers such as vials, cartridges, and syringes. The adoption of robotic solutions offers cost-effective and faster performance for aseptic processes to meet the growing demand for pharmaceuticals. This factor is anticipated to drive the global aseptic pharma processing equipment market in the forecast period.

The Growing Demand for Drugs and Medicines

The pharmaceutical sector has experienced tremendous growth in recent years, and experts predict that this trend will continue in the coming years as well. The growth in the pharmaceutical industry will directly impact the global aseptic pharma processing market. The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, medical expenditures, and the emergence of various medical insurance provisions will all have a direct impact on the growth of the global aseptic pharmaceutical processing market. Thus, pharmaceutical manufacturers are expanding their operational capacities to meet the growing demand, which is expected to drive the market demand for aseptic pharma processing.

Restraints

The Lack of Skilled Labor in Emerging Economies

The global aseptic pharma processing is still witnessing restrictive growth due to the lack of skilled labor in emerging economies. Although emerging economies such as China, India, and Japan are showing impressive growth in the pharmaceutical industry, a shortage of qualified personnel to deal with aseptic processing techniques acts as a barrier. Furthermore, this technique requires specialized knowledge and training, and hiring such professionals will ultimately escalate overhead expenses, which may not be very suitable for price-sensitive markets such as India.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Aseptic Pharma Processing Equipment Market

The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 put a lot of strain on the entire healthcare system in the world. As a result of the community transmission of the virus, more patients had to be admitted into healthcare facilities, resulting in an increase in chronic and infectious diseases. This resulted in a rapid surge in the demand for various drugs and medicines for treatment purposes. Because of this, the global aseptic pharma processing equipment witnessed tremendous growth during the COVID-19 period. Furthermore, the expansion in the pharmaceutical production activities is also providing growth opportunities to the global aseptic pharma processing equipment market.

Global Aseptic Pharma Processing Equipment Market - By Product

Based on products, the global aseptic pharma processing equipment market is segmented into processing equipment and packaging equipment. The demand for pharma processing equipment accounts for the largest market share. This segment is further classified into drying equipment, extruders, mills, granulation equipment, tablet compression equipment, feeders, fill/finish equipment, mixing equipment, and pneumatic conveying equipment. The aseptic processing of the drugs and medicines minimizes the risk of microbial contamination into the product as it moves through the manufacturing procedure, which is why pharmaceutical companies are increasingly adopting aseptic processing equipment.

Global Aseptic Pharma Processing Equipment Market - By Application

Based on applications, the global aseptic pharma processing equipment market is segmented into ophthalmic suspensions, reconstituted lyophilized powders for injection, sterile injectables, aqueous-based aerosols for inhalation, and other applications. Among these, the ophthalmic suspension segment holds the largest market share. The ophthalmic products contain at least one active pharmaceutical ingredient and are intended for use primarily on the conjunctiva or eyelids. The chances of microbial content or the bio-burden of the raw materials are very high, because of which the aseptic pharma processing technique becomes very crucial. Therefore, this application is a significant growth factor for the global aseptic pharma processing equipment market.

Global Aseptic Pharma Processing Equipment Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the global aseptic pharma processing equipment market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle-East & Africa. Among these regions, North America dominates the market because of the high concentration of pharmaceutical industry giants such as Pfizer, Merck & Co., AbbVie, etc. Increasing healthcare expenditures and rigorous regulatory policies for sterilization of pharmaceuticals are also contributing to the growth of the aseptic pharma processing equipment market in North America. Europe also covers a substantial share in the market with Germany and Denmark being some of the biggest exporters of drugs and medicines, which propels the demand for aseptic pharma processing equipment.
