The Global Blow Fill Seal BFS Market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4%, from $8,024 million in 2018 to reach $14,635 million by 2028. The significant growth in the overall market can be attributed to the growing demand for rigid packaging materials and the rise in globalization across various industries such as pharmaceuticals, food & beverage, cosmetics, and personal care, which are driving up the demand for new BFS machines.
Blow Fill Seal BFS is a market where the items are typically large and bulky. These products are sealed by using equipment to inflate air into them before they are heated or cooled, hence the term "Blow-Fill-Seal".
A typical blow fill seal machine has automatic inseam welding machines that weld together two sheets of metal foil which have been joined via an adhesive strip. The molten plastic material is then injected under high pressure through this seam while it's still hot from the welding process, filling any voids between the jointed panels as well as forming a complete surface layer on top of both pieces of foil.
On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), and Other. Polyethylene dominated this segment with a share of 39% during 2018 and is projected to retain its lead throughout the given forecast period. This can be attributed to wide usage for packaging food items, pharmaceuticals as well as cosmetic products such as shampoo, conditioner, etc. PP accounted for 26% revenue contribution followed by other types which together accounted for 34%.
Polyethylene is a thermoplastic polymer that shares the same properties as polypropylene, such as low density and high strength. Polyethylene can be used for many applications from non-food contact surfaces to food packaging. The most common use of polyethylene is in plastic bags and bottles which are easier to recycle than other plastics like PET or PVC because it has lower permeability (or gas/moisture transfer) rates.
Polypropylene is a type of thermoplastic that has been around since the 1940s. There are many different types of polypropylene, but PP can be used in a wide range of applications such as packaging and piping. It is made with ethane, propene ligands, and chlorine to create this plastic that forms into pellets or granules. The advantages include cost-effectiveness, good chemical resistance, and transparency. However, it does not have high heat tolerance so its use on large-scale projects may be limited.
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into Pharmaceuticals, Food & Beverage, Cosmetics, and Personal Care.
Blow Fill Seal BFS is used for pharmaceuticals to seal the vials of drugs. It also helps in preventing any leakage from these containers and thus ensures that it remains safe for use when taken by patients.
PE is the most commonly used polymer in Blow Fill Seal BFS. The PE blow fill seal has a wide range of applications, such as for food and beverage, packaging, healthcare product, cosmetic products, and more. It can also be customized to meet customers' specific requirements with regard to quality levels or production capacity. Pharmaceuticals are another important sector where Blow Fill Seal BFS has been widely applied due to its high-quality standards that ensure safety during transportation and storage.
Blow Fill Seal BFS is a container packing method that seals the product inside an airtight plastic bag and then fills it with gas to keep it fresh. This process helps in preserving the quality of cosmetic products like shampoo, conditioner, soap bars, etc. Blow Fill Seal BFS can also be used for packaging food items or other goods which require preservation from external factors such as humidity. The primary advantage of this technique is its safety features which provide a high level of protection against leakage or puncturing since the final package are sealed before filling. There are various types of packages available depending on the use case; namely, ziplock bags (typically made out of polyethylene), stand-up pouches (made out of thermoplastic polyester), and clamshells (made out of polypropylene).
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The European market accounts for a significant share in the global demand owing to its high consumption rates coupled with stringent norms on quality standards. This region would be one of the most lucrative markets globally during the forecast period due to increasing investments by leading players into R&D activities as well as product innovations through acquisitions & joint ventures etc.
The Asia Pacific is expected to generate considerable revenue from 2019 onwards whereas Middle East & Africa has been witnessing a sluggish growth rate over the last few years on account of economic recession coupled with geopolitical unrests which have led to a decline in demand.
Depending on the country, the market players and their strategies vary drastically across different regions of the world. The Asia Pacific is one such region that has witnessed exponential growth rates owing to evolving consumer preferences coupled with changing lifestyle patterns as well as growing disposable incomes among consumers fuelling investments by leading companies into this region for product distribution & development purposes.
The major drivers for the global Blow Fill Seal BFS Market are increasing demand for convenience products such as ready-to-eat food items or snacks which require packaging that can be sealed before filling due to their short shelf life. Rising awareness among consumers about various health benefits provided by plastic materials will also provide opportunities for growth over the forecast period. Globally, developing economies show higher potential due to an increase in disposable incomes and changing lifestyle patterns; thus driving consumer trends towards packaged goods rather than fresh produce or other perishables.
