Market outlook of the pharmaceutical sector

Technavios research analyst forecasts the overall pharmaceutical packaging market to increase at a compound annual Growth rate of around 6% during the projection horizon. The quick demand for pre-fillable syringes is the primary growth driver for this sector. These syringes offer various advantages including minimization of drug waste, growing beneficial product life, and convenience in drug administration and are integrated with advanced delivery systems including pens and auto-injectors. Glass is the most popular packaging material for these syringes with the serious demand arising from the USA and EU.

Nevertheless, the increasing number of counterfeit products in the industry is anticipated to deter the market increase during the outlook period. As reported by studies by the WHO, the counterfeiting rate among prescriptions sold through suspicious websites is nearly 50%. Stringent regulations are being implemented by governments globally, to counter these risks. For example, in Europe (EU), under the additional Anti-Falsification Directive, as of 2017, drugs that have been prescribed by doctors will have to be provided with a unique and singular code number, a feature that will represent that the packaging of the drug is additional and authentic.
