Pharmaceutical Packaging to Register Two-fold Revenue Growth

On account of increasing population, consumer awareness and rising disposable income, the global pharmaceutical packaging market will grow 2.2X from 2019 to 2029. Developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil cater to a millennial population which demands convenient packaging solutions such as auto-injectors, and pre-filed syringes. When coupled with frequent deadly disease outbreaks such as Corona virus, H1N1, countries are compelled to make incremental investments in healthcare to increase life expectancy. This filters down to an increase in demand for pharmaceutical packaging. Developed regions, on the other hand, are witnessing a proliferation of their geriatric population. This consumer segment is highly dependent on pharmaceutical drugs for maintaining good health thus adding to the demand for pharmaceutical drugs packaging.

Preference for Plastics & Polymers to Remain Intact

Polypropylene, a sub segment of plastics & polymer will experience accentuating demand on the back of favorable mechanical, thermal, physical, and electrical properties. The material exhibits high tensile strength along with superior resistance against chemicals, organic solvents, and electrolyte attacks. Plastics & Polymer segment accounts for more than 38% share of total market value. Glass is another material of importance with the second highest market share. The silica based packaging material will continue to experience rising demand, owing to the prevalence of atmosphere sensitive pharmaceutical drugs. For instance, oral solutions are always at risk of potential degradation via oxidation and hydrolysis, glass containers prevent that from happening. Another factor that ensures growth of this segment is the practice of dosing. Pharmaceuticals sold in glass packaging are administered to consumers in doses which necessitates durable packaging material of this kind.
