Packaging is an important part for the pharmaceutical product. There are several types of packaging for pharmaceutical products. Manufacturers are mainly used to create durable pharmaceutical casing for packaging, shielding layers for packaging products such as closures and lids, and many more. Packaging products are mainly used to store liquid, solid and semisolid formulations, such as syrups, tablets, capsules and topical drug formulations.
Asia-Pacific Pharmaceutical Packaging Market Dynamics
- Rising demand for plastics and polymers based pharmaceutical packaging
There are various types of plastic resins options available in the market including polyethylene, polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate, polyvinyl chloride and bioplastic which are extensively used for manufacturing syringes, pouches, sachets, cartridges, pharmaceutical vials, bottles, closures, tubes, and blister packs. Polypropylene accounted for the largest share in the plastic and polymers material segment because it provides a combination of beneficial properties, such as electrical, mechanical, physical and thermal characteristics. Thus, the rising demand for plastics and polymers based pharmaceutical packaging is expected to drive the growth rate of the market.
- Increasing demand of child resistant packaging
Plastic bottles are widely used for the pharmaceutical packaging which comprise child-resistant closure and caps. According to the United States Food and Drug Administration, pharmaceutical plastic packaging manufacturers also have to use the label to highlight “child-resistant packaging” on the pharmaceutical product to describe the customer. Pouches and Ziplock bags are also gaining considerable drive in the pharmaceutical packaging market because it needs a skill to slide the zipper and access the product, which aids to keeping the product away from the children. Therefore, increasing demand of child resistant packaging is anticipated to drive market growth rate, Opportunities
- Surging innovations in pharmaceutical packaging
The companies of pharmaceutical packaging are focusing on innovations to decrease the usage of plastics and carbon emissions which has associated with blister packaging. For instance, a global shift has been witnessed in the pharmaceutical companies in the European Union and other regulated markets for generics towards eco-friendly and sustainable primary packaging, resulting in the increasing preference toward the polylactic acid (PLA) based packaging among pharmaceutical manufacturers. Moreover, according to the data which has published by Honeywell International Inc. in January 2022, polylactic acid (PLA) consumes 65% less energy during the production. As a result of all these factor increase the demand for the eco-friendly and sustainable primary packaging which will create numerous opportunities factor for the growth of the market during the forecast period
- Stringent regulations for using plastic packaging
Government imposed strict rules for using plastic based packaging in pharmaceutical packaging which may act as major restraint for some extent. It has adversely impacted the profit of the manufacturers. On the other hand, using biodegradable raw materials is very costly than non-biodegradable which increases the overall production costs. Therefore, growing cost pressure will also restrain the growth of the market.
