Latin America Blow Fill Seal (BFS) Technology Market - Snapshot
The BFS or blow-fill-seal process refers to the simple combination of an automated seal, fill, and form packaging sequence into one single machine. Plastic containers are filled and blow-molded with liquid product and sealed in one ongoing operation under aseptic processing conditions. The Latin America blow fill seal (BFS) technology market is estimated to be driven by augmented use of the technology in the pharmaceutical sector.
In this manufacturing technology, large (over 500 mL) and small (0.1 mL) volume of liquid filled containers are produced. This technique finds augmented utilization in the pharmaceutical sector to fill up parental preparation with minimum intervention of people.
Demand to Rise with the Growth of the Pharmaceutical Industry
The Latin America blow fill seal (BFS) technology market is estimated to witness considerable growth in the years to come owing to the growing pharmaceutical sector in the region. This blow fill seal technology is considered as an improved form of aseptic processing by many of the medicinal regulatory agencies such as FDA in the US in the packaging of pharmaceutical and healthcare products.

On the other hand, high manufacturing cost is estimated to be one of the main factors that are restricting the expansion of the Latin America blow fill seal (BFS) technology market.
Latin America Blow Fill Seal (BFS) Technology Market: Snapshot
Thanks to the rising demand for pharmaceutical products that are manufactured using aseptic technology, the market for blow fill seal (BFS) technology in Latin Africa has been displaying a substantial rise in its size and valuation. Over the forthcoming years, this market is expected to be greatly influenced by several market trends, such as the advent of co-extrusion and blow fill insert seal technologies.
The leading players operating in this market are focusing aggressively on improvements in the production process in order to minimize the generation of non-viable particulate matter, which is likely to support the growth of this market substantially in the near future. The opportunity in this market is estimated to increase at a CAGR of 6.40% between 2016 and 2024, rising from US$205.5 mn in 2016 to a value of US$337.8 mn by the end of 2024.
Demand for Polyethylene Material to Remain High
Polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), and several other materials, such as ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) are the key components required for the production of blow fill seal. With a share of 62.4%, the PE segment led this Latin American market in 2016 and is expected to continue to rise significantly over the next few years. Due to its low gas and water permeability, PE does not interfere with the drug. This factor is expected to fuel the growth of this segment in the years to come. Among all PE materials, LDPE is reporting a higher demand due to its excellent resistance to acid and bases and non reactivity at room temperature. HDPE is also projected to witness increased demand over the years to come, thanks to its high strength to density ratio, resulting in less spillage occurrences.
The pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, and the cosmetics and personal care industries have emerged as the key end users of BFS technology in Latin America. The products available in the Latin America market for BFS technology is primarily utilized in the pharmaceutical industry, which acquired a demand share of 98.4% in 2015. Researchers expect this scenario to remain so over the next few years, thanks to the growing need for user-friendly and flexible container designs among consumers. Among others, the food and beverages industry is poised to be the next lucrative end-use segment for BFS product manufacturers in the near future. The rising demand for sports and nutritional drinks is anticipated to fuel the uptake of BFS technology in the food and beverages industry in this region.
Brazil to Continue on Top
In terms of geography, the Latin America market for BFS technology reports its presence across Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, and the Rest of Latin America. In 2016, Brazil held a share of nearly 43% in the overall market, registering its dominance. Researchers project this domestic market to remain on the top over the next few years, thanks to the significant rise in its pharmaceutical sector. Mexico, which stood second in the overall market in 2015, is also estimated to witness high growth in its BFS market in the coming years due to a relatively stable economy and the growing trade relations with the U.S.
Nephron Pharmaceuticals Corp., Weiler Engineering Inc., Horizon Pharmaceuticals Inc., Rommelag Kunststoff-Maschinen Vertriebsgesellschaft mbH, Unipharma LLC, Brevetti Angela S.R.L., Takeda Pharmaceuticals International AG, and Unither Pharmaceuticals are leading players in the Latin America BFS technology market.
