Pharmaceutical Packaging

As Quoted In Healthcare Packaging

Demand for pharmaceutical packaging in the US is forecast to increase 5.3 percent annually through 2014. Gains will be driven by recently upgraded regulations and standards that will boost demand for high value-added containers and accessories. Parenteral containers and labels will be among the fastest growing types.

This study analyzes the $14.3 billion US pharmaceutical packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2018 by material, type (e.g., plastic bottles, blister packaging, parenteral containers, pouches, prefillable inhalers, tubes, closures, secondary containers, labels) and market (e.g., pharmaceutical manufacturing, contract packaging, retail pharmacies).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 33 industry players, including MeadWestvaco, Rexam and Amcor.
