Child resistant closures are an essential requirement, especially when it is related to pharmaceuticals.Despite a decrease in cases of accidental poisoning in recent years, accidental child poisoning remains a significant risk in several homes, with prescription medicines and over-the-counter presenting the most significant risk.

Market Overview

Europe has a well-established personal care industry and is the largest market for cosmetics and other personal care products worldwide.The European Union’s (EU) stringent regulations, implementing child resistant packaging for chemicals, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical products, have impacted the market in the region positively.

Moreover, numerous pharmaceutical manufacturing companies in the region increasingly adopt child-proof closures for their products, which is expected to boost the market growth.The rise in concerns about child safety and the risk of children ingesting harmful chemicals and drugs among the population, are the major factors driving the growth of the Europe child resistant closures market.

According to the NCBI, in the European Union (EU), poisoning is the fifth leading cause of unintentional death among children and adolescents. Research from the European Child Safety Alliance estimates that 3,000 children under the age of 14 die from acute poisoning every year. This has sparked increased efforts to improve parental education in ‘child-proofing’ homes, and patients and stakeholders are calling on end-use industries to recognize the importance of child resistant closures (CRCs). Thus, such government regulations about child resistant packaging in the region are further expected to drive the Europe child resistant closures market during the forecast period.
