Aseptic packaging is the last step in aseptic food processing, wherein the products being packaged, such as dairy foods, beverages, pharmaceuticals, and numerous others, are sterilised separately from the packaging. These sterilised contents are then packaged into the packaging container under aseptic conditions. Aseptic packaging is a vital part of the processes of food processing, pharmaceutical, medical and dairy industries. Rising urbanisation coupled with increase in awareness regarding the usage of sterile products and convenient products has catalysed the growth of aseptic packaging market over the last decade. The growing demand for packaged foods including ready-to-eat meals, dairy products, frozen meals, cake mixes, and snack foods is anticipated to have a positive impact on the industry growth over the forecast period. In addition to this, this type of packaging eliminates the need for refrigeration, which makes it convenient for the ‘on-the–go’ consumers. The surge in urbanisation, especially in the countries like China and India, is giving rise to the demand of packaged food products. In addition, the growth in the milk and dairy products market has been generating the traction for the aseptic packaging market.
Driving factors of the Aseptic Packaging Market:
Shift in consumer preference against the use of food preservatives is observed to be the biggest driving factor of the Aseptic Packaging Market. There is a growing demand for on the go food products with a long shelf life, which are either entirely free of or can delay bacterial contamination. Today, there is a growing requirement to replace artificial preservatives by natural food ingredients with antimicrobial activity. However, organically grown ingredients are more expensive as compared to the ingredients that are artificial and having a longer shelf life, because of which aseptic packaging is preferred when it comes to the packaging of expensive products, as they promise an extended shelf life. Aseptic packaging allows the use of natural ingredients, which are healthier and costlier, but also preferred by the consumers, allowing the manufacturers to produce a completely organic product, and make it more shelf stable.
Aseptic packaging is a process in which both the packaging materials and the products are sterilised separately before filling. This decreases the probability of the presence of any harmful bacteria, thus making the food safer and healthier. Hence, aseptic packaging is gaining awareness among people. The rising amount of laws and regulations of the governments of countries across the board against the use of food preservatives, especially in developed countries, is driving the use of aseptic packaging.
