The pharmaceutical packaging market is projected to register a CAGR of 6%, in terms of value, between 2019 and 2024

The increasing demand for pharmaceuticals owing to increase in healthcare coverage, growing aging population, and an increase in non-communicable disease in emerging economies are the major drivers for the pharmaceutical packaging market.

Another factor driving the pharmaceutical packaging market is the new drug development and government initiatives to promote innovations in the pharmaceutical industry and to enhance the use of generics, in developed countries. However, the strict regulations for pharmaceutical packaging in developed countries such as the US, UK, and Japan lead to increase in overall packaging cost, which collectively restraints the pharmaceutical packaging market.

Pre-filled syringes segment is expected to be the fastest-growing type for pharmaceutical packaging during the forecast period

Pre-filled syringes are a replacement for traditional vials and syringes. The prefilled syringes aids to reduce wastage, provide patient compliance by offering self-administered metered dosage. The presence of the properties mentioned above, easy handling, and reduction in breakage failure provided by these syringes, boosts demand for pre-filled syringes. The rise in aging population, increase in non-communicable disease such as diabetes, are driving the demand for prefilled syringes.

Plastic & polymers are expected to be the largest raw material used in pharmaceutical packaging during the forecast period

Plastic & polymers are the major raw material type used for pharmaceutical packaging. Variety of plastics such as HDPE, LDPE, PET, and others are used for pharmaceutical packaging. These are cost-effective raw material with excellent shatter resistance hence reduces loss due to breakage.

Plastic can be easily formed in the required shapes such as vials, bottles, syringes, and others. Also, it can be combined with metals such as aluminum to form laminations for flexible packaging. Presence of these properties acts as the major driver for the use of plastic material in pharmaceutical packaging.

North America is projected to be the largest pharmaceutical packaging market during the forecast period

North America was the most promising market for pharmaceutical packaging in 2018 and is expected to be the same during the forecast period. The growing aging population, increased demand for generic drugs, healthcare coverage provided by the government are demanding more pharmaceutical drugs, hence driving the North American pharmaceutical packaging market. Also, technological advancements in drug formulations such as biologics and nutraceuticals are responsible for the high growth of the market.
