Analysts’ Viewpoint

A shift toward smaller and flexible drug manufacturing production lines during the ongoing COVID-19 situation is predicted to keep economies running. Innovations in pouch filling equipment for pharmaceuticals are contributing toward the growth of the aseptic transfer system market. However, ensuring a contaminant-free production line due to human intervention can be potentially challenging. In order to overcome this, manufacturers should adopt measures such as thorough disinfection and no open-door interventions to ensure a contaminant-free production line. As such, manufacturers are increasing their production capabilities in single use aseptic fitments and bag-in-box filling equipment to facilitate hygienic and non-invasive product transfer.
