The global aseptic packaging market size is poised to reach around US$ 74.78 Bn by 2026 and growing at a CAGR of around 9.4% during forecast period 2019 to 2026.
Aseptic packaging plays a very important role in sealing sterilized products under an unsterilized atmosphere. Aseptic packaging is a concentrated process where both the package and the product are sterilized separately before filling. This decreases the probability of the presence of germs and makes the food safer and healthier. Hence, aseptic packaging is gaining awareness among people.
Aseptic packaging has become a strong substitute for canning and the use of preservatives for increasing shelf-life. Though there's a demand for high initial investment for material and packaging machinery that is specific to this process, the ROI achieved because of the reduced cost of cold chain logistics and distribution, as well as preservatives, has allowed manufacturers to reap benefits within 3 to 5 years. There is a growing demand for convenience food products with long shelf life, which are either free of or can delay bacterial contamination. Food preservatives are immensely utilized in food production to extend the shelf life and preserve the quality of the product. However, people are growing increasingly aware of the ill-effects of consuming processed foods with additives. According to a paper published by the Royal Society of Chemistry, in 2011, titled “Food & Functions”, there is a growing requirement to replace artificial preservatives by natural food ingredients with antimicrobial activity. However, natural ingredients are relatively high-ticket, and aseptic packaging is preferred for the packaging of expensive products, as they promise extended shelf life. Aseptic packaging also enhances the utilization of natural ingredients, allowing a manufacturer to produce a completely natural product, and make them increasingly shelf-stable.
