Aseptic transfer systems are used in the sterile transfer of APIs and formulation ingredients during aseptic processes. Furthermore, these help prevent contamination of components, contributing to the prevention of infections in patients. Aseptic systems are considered the next-generation application of single use systems in API manufacturing. Interest of pharmaceutical companies in downstream processing is increasing even though aseptic fillings drive investments in the market. The expansion of the pharmaceutical industry, along with the application of aseptic transfer systems across various areas of the pharmaceutical industry propel the market.

Technological Advancements to Boost Market Growth

  • Aseptic processing and transfer are essential in manufacturing of sterile biopharmaceutical products. Improving aseptic transfer is necessary for the enhancement of product quality, increase in product availability, affordability, and sustaining patient health.
  • The advent of isolators and RABS led to the development of newer techniques for aseptic transfer. These devices are considered advanced aseptic manufacturing technology and are known to be better than conventional lines.
  • Getinge AB developed a specialized technology called DPTE system, which is a sterile transfer system for validated aseptic transfer along the production chain
  • These newer technologies aid in rapid processing and aseptic transfer of products and materials. This enables improvement in the process, enhancements of workflow operations, and in speeding up response and processing times.

Focus of Pharmaceutical Companies on Adopting Flexible Manufacturing Lines to Hamper Market

  • Aseptic transfer systems form a significant part of the pharmaceutical industry; however, rise in focus of drug manufacturers on shifting toward smaller and more flexible production lines is likely to restrain the global market
  • Flexible manufacturing systems are anticipated to dominate the pharmaceutical industry in the near future, owing to challenges of volatility, complexity, ambiguity, and uncertainty
  • Flexible production lines work by identifying cross-over steps in the manufacturing process, when two or more processes share a similar step, allowing the same piece of equipment to be used in both processes. This enables drug manufacturers to employ single equipment to work on multiple production lines, creating instant flexible production.
  • Rise in adoption of flexible manufacturing lines by drug manufacturers is expected to hamper the growth of aseptic transfer systems, which need sterilization after every process and do not allow the conduction of two similar processes in the same equipment

High Performance RTPs Help Achieve Full Containment

Cutting-edge alpha ports, beta assemblies, and single use beta bags are intensifying market competition. DESTACO— a global supplier of comprehensive automation, workholding, and containment solutions, is increasing its manufacturing capabilities in high performance alpha ports and beta assemblies that help to improve efficiency in aseptic processing. Manufacturers in the aseptic transfer system market are increasing the availability of ports that have optional door materials meant to provide flexibility for diverse applications.

Manufacturers in the aseptic transfer system market are integrating mechanical interlocks in rapid transfer ports (RTP) to prevent the improper operation of the transfer port. They are designing RTPs that can be used in conjunction with single use beta bag products. RTPs are being extensively used to achieve full containment at all times such as during product loading, transferring, and equipment cleaning.

Patented Liquid Aseptic Transfer Technologies Intensify Market Competition

The aseptic transfer system market is expected to register a healthy CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. Innovations in liquid transfer systems are helping to bolster market growth. This is evident since liquid transfer systems are predicted to hold a higher revenue share compared to solid transfer systems. Liquibox— a provider of sustainable and flexible packaging solutions, is increasing its product portfolio with its patented Intasept aseptic transfer technology to deliver sterile packaging for pharmaceutical and medical liquids. This has led to the popularity of flexible packaging solutions to keep non-invasive pharmaceutical liquids safe and sterile for controlled use in labs and medical facilities.

The growing application of inter-hospital transit and biological testing has fueled the expansion of the aseptic transfer system market. Companies are catering to the needs of clients to facilitate bulk packaging of pharmaceuticals in intermediate bulk containers (IBC). This involves management of oral and eye care products as well as tasks pertaining to working with chemicals and solutions for biological testing.

Additive-free PE Laminated Films Allow Safe Packaging of Non-invasive Liquids
