Market outlook of the pharmaceutical market

Technavios research analyst predicts the global pharmaceutical packaging market to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period. The rapid demand for pre-fillable syringes is the primary growth driver for this market. These syringes offer several advantages such as minimization of drug waste, increasing useful product life, and convenience in drug administration and are integrated with advanced delivery systems such as pens and auto-injectors. Glass is the most popular packaging material for these syringes with the significant demand arising from the US and Europe.

However, the growing number of counterfeit products in the market is anticipated to deter the market growth during the forecast period. According to 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 instance, in Europe, under the new Anti-Falsification Directive, as of 2017, drugs that have been prescribed by doctors will have to be provided with a particular and unique code number, a feature that will represent that the packaging of the drug is new and authentic.

The grades of plastic used for packaging include PE, PP, polyolefin, PET, and PVC.

APAC
North America
ROW
Western Europe

North America dominated the market during 2015, accounting for a market share of around 35%.

The demand for innovative forms of packaging in the country is propelled by stringent regulations by agencies such as the FDA.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global pharmaceutical packaging market is highly fragmented with several multinational, regional, and local vendors. The local players have been offering innovative solutions at a lower price compared to the international players, leading to price wars.

The report predicts international players to grow inorganically during the forecast period by acquiring regional or local players.
