Over the past several years, advances in reagents and related substances have increased the quality and performance of IVD packaging configurations. This trend is aiding the use of higher value-added closures, containers, and packaging accessories. Nonetheless, the relative cost of packaging to IVD product shipments is expected to decrease gradually through 2025. This slight, but steady drop will reflect efficiency improvements achieved by producers in the design and selection of packaging systems.

Blood collection tubes to become top-selling IVD group

Culture and media plates and bottles will post the fastest revenue growth among primary IVD containers through 2020 and beyond based on expanding uses in cancer testing and the detection of complex infectious diseases. Blood collection tubes will become the top-selling group of IVD containers by 2025, reflecting their adaptability to virtually all types of IVD procedures and end-user preferences for higher value-added types with enhanced seals and premium additives.

Over the long term, reagent and solution bottles will continue to dominate the packaging of consumables for clinical chemistry and immunoassay procedures. On the downside, these containers will generate below average revenue growth as advances in technology reduce the volume of reagents required for many patient tests.

Screw-threaded remain the closure of choice

Due to ease of opening and the increasing availability of tight seal varieties, screw-threaded designs will remain the closure of choice for reagent and solution bottles, blood collection tubes, culture and media bottles, sample and transport tubes, and tubular vials. Straight plug stoppers will be incorporated in an expanding percentage of IVD containers based on strong moisture-, oxygen-, and hydrocarbon-resistant properties.

Boxes, cartons & trays to exhibit above average growth

Availability of point-of-care test kits will generate above average growth for folding paperboard boxes and cartons and trays. In contrast, the overall market for IVD microplates will expand at a decelerating pace as a number of immunoassays performed in clinical and hospital laboratories are replaced by point-of-care tests and professional molecular diagnostic procedures. Security labels, package inserts, expanded content and intelligent components will generate the most rapid sales advances among other IVD packaging products.
