Industry growth is further aided by increased funding from various public and private sectors and increased investments in the development of improved products and devices. Furthermore, the rise in the elderly population is attributable to rising life expectancy, better healthcare awareness, and enhanced specialty care. These factors promote the pharmaceutical industry's expansion, which is driving up demand for pharmaceutical processing seals across the globe.

According to the Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the senior population is anticipated to treble by 2050, reaching 2.1 billion. The senior populations in Europe and North America are the largest. In other regions, the elderly population is predicted to expand as well; by 2050, the elderly population in Europe will account for 35% of the total population, 28% in North America, 25% in Latin America and the Caribbean, 24% in Asia, 23% in Oceania, and 9% in Africa. These reasons are projected to contribute to medicinal processing seals manufacturers with several chances to expand their product lines, production facilities, and solutions in the near future.

However, the growing preference for refurbished equipment is the factor that is hindering the industry growth during the forecast period. The primary reason for the growing desire for reconditioned equipment is that it can save 40–45 percent of the costs associated with new machinery, cutting capital expenditure. These difficulties function as a stumbling block to the pharma processing seals' progress. Also, the aftermarket consumes a large portion of these processing seals. They have a shorter lifespan in pharma manufacture than the technology in which they are employed. The rising usage of used equipment is unlikely to influence seal demand in the aftermarket, while OEMs' limited requirements are likely to restrict demand to some extent.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The industry has observed extensive developments in the last few decades, supported by factors such as the rising prevalence of chronic diseases and increasing demand for pharmaceutical seals. Pharmaceutical processing seals market demand is driven by the growing healthcare sector and rising pharma drug consumption. Chronic diseases have become more common due to rising environmental concerns, poor lifestyles, and junk eating habits. An unhealthy lifestyle includes malnutrition, poor nutrition, smoking, alcohol consumption, drug addiction, stress, and other factors that contribute to diseases such as metabolic disorders, joint difficulties, cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, and obesity.

In addition, as per the WHO, the obese population has more than tripled globally, since 1975. Around 1.8 bn individuals aged over 18 years were overweight, in 2016, with a count around 650 Mn. Obesity harm more individuals than under-weight in most of the global population. In 2020, 39 million children under 5 years of five were overweight or obese. One of the key causes of the rising occurrence of chronic health issues is an unhealthy lifestyle. Thus, the rising chronic diseases are boosting the industry growth during the forecast period.

Insight by Type

Based on the type segment, the O-rings segment is expected to be the most significant revenue contributor in the global market in 2021 and is expected to retain its dominance in the foreseen period. In the pharmaceutical processing seals market, O-rings had the most market share. Pharma equipment that is utilized in the manufacture of pharma medications uses O-rings. The rise of the pharmaceutical production business is driving up demand for pharma processing seals. O-rings are employed in cryogenic, bioprocessing, and other applications. Agitators and hydraulic cylinders are two types of equipment that use a lot of O-rings, and their high consumption is projected to boost the worldwide pharmaceutical processing seals market.

Geographic Overview

In terms of geography, North America had the highest share, in 2021. Due to the general region's strong and developed healthcare sector, it is the largest market for pharmaceutical processing seals. The region's large-scale production of medications has bolstered the pharma equipment market, rising demand for pharmaceutical processing seals. Growing demands for generic and biosimilar pharmaceuticals, high healthcare spending, an aging population, and an increase in the frequency of lifestyle disorders contribute to the region's high pharma output. The pharmaceutical processing seals market is likely to be driven by the region's large production and consumption of pharmaceuticals.

Moreover, Asia-pacific is expected to witness a high CAGR in the global market in 2021. The region is expected to expand due to increased investment in healthcare capacity expansion and increased pharma equipment production due to favorable rules and regulations in the region. Furthermore, the rising demand for improved pharma drugs to treat critical medical problems has increased the demand for residential pharmaceutical manufacturing, which is expected to drive the growth for pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment and, as a result, increase demand for pharmaceutical processing seals in the region.
