Sophisticated aseptic packaging equipment has found great acceptance in the United States in the last few years. To sustain this momentum, the companies in these markets should overcome the significant challenges of high capital costs and the associated expenditure incurred in installations and employing experienced technicians.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (chemicals.frost.com), U.S. Aseptic Packaging Markets, reveals that revenue in this industry totaled $4.61billion in 2004 and can reach $5.31 billion in 2011.

“To boost revenues, manufacturers of aseptic packaging equipment should highlight benefits such as extended shelf life and lower distribution costs and attempt to decrease the overall production costs,” explain Frost & Sullivan Research Analysts Ravi S. Sankar and Anupama Ramaswamy.
These companies must capitalize on their equipment sophistication, minimum distribution costs, and advanced technologies to provide better customer value in terms of creativity and comfort, ultimately spurring revenue growth.
“Aseptic packaging, based on the technique of high-temperature-less time, is ideal for the beverage market that has products with new flavors and high nutritional value and which are thermally sensitive,” elaborates Ramaswamy.
To profit from this favorable trend, enterprises should adeptly handle the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulation allowing only hydrogen peroxide as a cleaning agent for sterilization of filling equipment. The manufacturers, on the other hand, prefer a sanitizer composed of peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide that is more suitable for the turbulent airflow in rotary fillers.
Because of this FDA restriction, only linear equipment was widely used until recently for aseptic filling operations. The low filling rate and productivity of the linear filling equipment leaves rotary filling equipment as the only competitive aseptic technology in the markets.
To counter this, aseptic packagers must concentrate on research and development to improve equipment efficiency and accommodate hydrogen peroxide in high-speed rotary machines.
“In addition, manufacturers need to overcome the increasing risk of contamination in the operation and distribution processes,” points out Sankar. “Aseptic packagers must adhere to strict cleaning and sanitation policies and insist on zero-tolerance policy for errors at all times.”
Notably, these companies should provide in-depth training during the engineering, testing, and installation stages, emphasizing on building-up the knowledge base of installation laborers. This will reduce the installation time along with the costs incurred in maintaining technicians and engineers on-site.
