DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/l5zlpp/aseptic_packaging) has announced the addition of the "Aseptic Packaging Market in the APAC Region 2015-2019" report to their offering.
The Aseptic Packaging market in the APAC region will grow at a CAGR of 11.35% over the period 2014-2019
Aseptic packaging involves the filling of sterilized perishable items in pre-sterilized packages made of rigid and flexible plastics, metal, and other materials in a sterile environment. Aseptic packages ensure ESL for the contents inside them and maintain the original texture, aroma, and other functional characteristics of the contents. Though packages are generally sterilized using thermal processing methods, which involve the application of hot water, steam-air mixture, and microwave energy, they can also be sterilized using chemical reagents and radiation treatment. The items inside are sterilized using UHT treatment and do not need any additives for preservation.
One key trend emerging in this market is the enhanced production capacity of vendors. The major vendors in the market are expected to witness double-digit growth rates in their production capacity during the forecast period. The main reason for the rapid increase in production capacity is the growing demand for aseptically packaged products such as packaged foods.
According to the report, one key driver in the market is the lack of proper cold-chain facilities in this region. The long distances these perishable items have to travel before they reach the end consumer takes a toll on the product quality and also reduces their nutritional value. They have to go through a complex process of transportation and warehousing before they reach their final point of sale. Hence, aseptic packaging is gaining popularity in the absence of proper cold-chain facilities.
Further, the report states that one key challenge in the market is the high capital expenditure incurred by vendors because of problems with the working efficiency of the equipment that can arise during its implementation. Moreover, overheads increase if the working efficiency of the equipment needs to be improved.
Based on the application type, the Aseptic Packaging market in the APAC region can be divided into four segments: Milk, Beverages, Dairy Products, and Other Products. The key end-users are the Dairy sector, F&B sector, and the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare sector.
