Aseptic processing is defined as a process to commercially sterilize a product into sterilized containers followed by hermetic sealing with a sterilized closure in a manner that prevents viable microbiological recontamination of the sterile product. The process is beneficial as it longer shelf life, wider packaging sizes, wider container materials, and improved nutritional and sensory properties.

North America represented one of the most attractive markets amongst all the markets in the world for aseptic pharma processing in 2020. However, Europe is anticipated to gain more market shares than North America in the coming years, which can be attributed to a large number of contract drug manufacturers (CDMOs) present in the region. Also, the demand for aseptic processing is higher in European countries. However, China is expected to be the fastest-growing nation globally, with many local manufacturers in the region.

The global aseptic pharma processing market was valued to be $10,633.3 million in 2020 and is expected to reach $24,364.0 million by 2031, witnessing a CAGR of 7.90% during the forecast period 2021-2031.

The growth is attributed to the reduced risk of high-cost product loss, high growth in the generics and biopharmaceuticals markets, and growing demand for contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) for aseptic manufacturing of pharmaceutical products. Further, continued significant investments by biotechnology firms to improve the aseptic processing technology by incorporating automated instruments has also promoted the prominence of the aseptic pharma processing market.
