Pharmaceutical packaging is the economical means of providing protection, identification information, presentation, convenience, and compliance for the product during transport, storage, display, and until the product is consumed. Different types of packaging are used for pharmaceutical products such as primary, secondary, and tertiary, and are primarily used for storing semisolid, solid, and liquid forms of formulations, including syrups, capsules, tablets, and topical drug formulations.

"Ken Research shares 5 key insights on this high opportunity market from its latest research study".

1.   Pharma Industry has witnessed a Rapid Surge in Eco-Friendly and Sustainable Packaging post-2020

Pharmaceutical packaging is essential to protect drugs from any kind of damage or contamination. Sustainable and environmentally friendly pharmaceutical packaging is gaining importance owing to rising concerns related to the environment among consumers as well as manufacturers. Governmental bodies and manufacturers are taking initiatives to introduce sustainable packaging in the pharmaceutical industry to reduce carbon footprints and address environmental-related challenges. However, the shortage of raw materials and inflated prices may affect the manufacturers especially the small-scale manufacturer of pharmaceutical packaging, which is anticipated to hamper the growth of the market.
The growing usage of smart packaging for patient identification and engagement is creating immense opportunities for the growth of the global pharmaceutical packaging market. According to Ken Research estimates, the Global Pharmaceutical Packaging Market – valued at around US$ 110 Bn by 2022 – is expected to grow around US$ 180 Bn opportunity by 2028.

2.   The Demand for Child Resistance Packaging is Driving the Market Growth

The increase in demand for innovative childproof pharmaceutical packaging to avoid access to drugs for children is expected to propel the growth of the market. The demand for child resistance packaging is increasing as a safety measure to prevent the unintended and harmful intake of drugs by children. Packaging manufacturers also ensure child-resistance packaging by introducing single-dose blister packaging, safety caps or closures, and other products. The increase in the cases of child death due to acute poisoning from pharmaceutical products has increased the demand for child-resistance pharmaceutical packaging. According to European Child Safety Alliance, around 3,000 children in the EU under the age of 14 die from acute poisoning each year after gaining access to pharmaceutical products.

3.   Fluctuating Prices and Shortage of Raw Materials are the Most Significant Barrier to the Growth of the Pharmaceutical Packaging Market

The volatility in the raw material prices including wood pulp and others for pharmaceutical packaging may hamper the growth of the market. The shortage of raw materials such as plastic, paper, glass, and others especially due to COVID-19 restrictions has upended the manufacturing process of pharmaceutical packaging as well as elevated the prices. The COVID-19 pandemic led to the shortage of workers and the shutdown of factories which resulted in disruption in the manufacturing of raw materials as well as their transportation.

The above-mentioned factor is expected to hinder the growth of the pharmaceutical packaging market globally. In March 2022, the cost of pulp, which is a key raw material for paper and corrugated boxes, has increased by over 25% due to higher quality environmental standards, and increased fuel prices which ultimately increased the transportation cost, and scarcity of raw material.
