The growing prevalence of chronic diseases coupled with the growth of the pharmaceutical industry is anticipated to augment the consumption of pharmaceutical packaging products.
Growing penetration of retail pharmacies in developing regions and a rising focus on brand enhancement and product differentiation by pharmaceutical manufacturers are anticipated to drive market growth. Packaging products are primarily utilized for storing solid, liquid, and semisolid forms of formulations, such as tablets, capsules, syrups, and topical drug formulations. The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases due to changing lifestyles, eating habits, and alternation in sleep cycles are contributing to an increased need for medications
Plastics & polymers hold the greatest revenue share of 38.1% in 2020. Various types of plastic resins including PE, PET, PP, PVC, PS, and bioplastic are widely used for manufacturing pharmaceutical vials, bottles, closures, syringes, pouches, sachets, cartridges, tubes, and blister packs. Paper & paperboard are majorly used in secondary and tertiary packaging of pharmaceutical products. Excellent printability, low cost, wide availability, and sustainability of paper & paperboard make them lucrative secondary and tertiary packaging options.
Glass is impervious to gases, moisture, odors, and microorganisms, thus, is widely employed in the packaging of liquid and semisolid pharmaceutical formulations. Glass is used for manufacturing injectable vials, syrup bottles, cartridges, syringes, and other products. Aluminum is another commonly used material for pharmaceutical packaging. It is used as a lidding material in blister packs owing to its strong barrier and easy-to-tear properties.
The primary product segment lead for the largest revenue share of over 76.3% in 2020 and is likely to retain its leading position over the forecast period. Primary packaging, such as bottles, tubes, or blister packs, directly comes in contact with the drug and thereby envelopes the drug and protects it from contamination. Secondary pharmaceutical packaging is a consecutive covering or package, which stores several groups of pharmaceutical packages together and protecting the packages from external impacts.
Tertiary packaging is used for wrapping or packaging a set of products. The packaging is used for safe handling and smooth transportation of goods. Some of the examples of tertiary packaging include brown cardboard boxes, shrink-wraps, and plastic bags.
Pharma manufacturing is the key end-use segment that accounted for the highest share of 51.2% in 2020 and is expected to witness strong growth from 2021 to 2030. This is owing to the increasing demand for medicines.
Market players in the pharmaceutical industry have increased the outsourcing of packaging activities to save their expenses and time. Instead of investing in packaging products, manufacturers are outsourcing packaging operations to specialized and highly capable contractors to ensure efficient packaging. This is expected to push the demand for contract manufacturing.
Retail pharmacies are increasingly incorporating branding activities on their packaging to differentiate them from others. Polybags and paper pouches are the commonly used packaging products by such retail pharmacies. The increasing penetration of retail, especially in developing countries like India, China, and Brazil, is expected to boost the retail pharmacy end-use segment.
North America accounted the market with a revenue share of 38.1% in 2020, wherein pharma manufacturing, which includes in-house production, was the largest end-use segment in the region.
Asia Pacific is projected to register the fastest CAGR of more than 13% from 2021 to 2030. Growing health awareness among consumers in Asia Pacific, especially in developing countries including China and India, coupled with the rising disposable income levels is anticipated to boost the growth of the pharmaceutical industry over the forecast period augmenting demand for its packaging. Europe is expected to have considerable growth owing to the rising research & development activities and introduction of new medicines aimed at improving patient health and their quality of life.
