Vaccine Packaging Market Trends

Emphasis on Immunization Campaigns by Governments

Countries such as India, China, the United States, and various European nations have swiftly developed and acquired COVID-19 vaccines through concerted government efforts. These nations have also executed extensive vaccine distribution programs to curb the spread of the virus. As of July 2022, the Indian government administered nearly 2 billion COVID-19 vaccinations.

Beyond COVID-19, governments worldwide are intensifying their efforts against other diseases like monkeypox and polio. In 2022, numerous countries experienced the spread of monkeypox, with over 47,600 confirmed cases worldwide as of August 2022, including over 17,000 cases in the United States. Governments are also fortifying vaccine supply chains for diseases like monkeypox. For example, the United States government announced in August 2022 that it would contribute approximately USD 11 million to support Bavarian Nordic in packaging its BAVA.CO Jynneos monkeypox vaccine at a U.S.-based manufacturing facility.

Furthermore, funding for immunization campaigns has been on the rise. In the case of polio, the United States government's support has increased from USD 134 million in FY 2009 to USD 253 million in FY 2022.

Asia-Pacific is Expected to Grow with the Highest CAGR

Glass packaging manufacturers and suppliers are strategically relocating to China, India, and Brazil due to the burgeoning opportunities presented by the pharmaceutical industry in these countries, particularly in vaccine packaging. As the vaccine packaging sector in the region experiences remarkable growth alongside the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, market players are committed to securing a stable supply of pharmaceutical glass.

SCHOTT, for instance, is investing nearly EUR 70 million in expanding its Indian tubing site in Jambusar, Gujarat, resulting in a more than 30% increase in the facility's overall Indian production capacity. This investment aligns with the government's vision of India becoming a global pharmaceutical hub. Additionally, the Indo-German joint venture between specialty glass manufacturers Schott AG and Kaisha anticipates selling approximately 380 million vials for COVID-19 vaccines in 2021-2022.

China has pledged to make its COVID-19 vaccines a global public good, exporting and donating them to as many nations as possible. Vaccine manufacturers are also expanding their facilities across Southeast and East Asian countries to enhance supply flow management. For example, in February 2022, COVID-19 vaccine producer Moderna announced its expansion in Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, and Malaysia to better serve Asian markets, contributing to the growth of the vaccine packaging market in the region.
