Pharmaceutical Packaging Products

As Quoted In KI Kunststoff Information

Led by prefillable syringes, vials, and premixed IV systems, parenteral containers will post the fastest growth in both revenue and unit demand for pharmaceutical packaging products.

US demand to rise 4.9% annually through 2018

Demand for pharmaceutical packaging products in the US will increase 4.9 percent annually to $22.1 billion in 2018. Primary containers will make up two-thirds of the total, with the remainder generated by closures, secondary containers, labels, and other packaging accessories. Led by prefillable syringes, vials, and premixed IV systems, parenteral containers will post the fastest growth in both revenue and unit demand as new injectable and infusion therapies based on biotechnology and other advanced life sciences are introduced into the marketplace. Demand for these containers will exceed that for blister packaging and will generate the second largest share of value demand among primary drug containers in 2018.

Plastic bottles to remain largest product segment

Reflecting usage in the bulk and prescription dose packaging of oral ethical drugs and the packaging of solid dose oral over-the-counter medicines in large quantities, plastic bottles will continue to record the largest demand among primary pharmaceutical containers, reaching $4.6 billion in 2018. Blister packaging will remain the leading competitor to plastic bottles in solid oral drug applications and, overall, will post above average revenue growth based on adaptability to unit dose and clinical trial dosage formats.

The value of demand generated by prefillable inhalers will expand somewhat faster than the overall average of primary pharmaceutical containers as the devices build applications in the delivery of asthma, COPD, and, most recently, insulin therapies. By contrast, the market for pharmaceutical pouches will grow at a slightly below average pace as uses remain limited to the unit dose packaging of transdermal, powder, and topical medicines. Advances in aesthetic and barrier properties will keep tubes a leading primary package for topical medication. However, the value of demand posted by these containers will increase at a comparatively slow pace due to competition from plastic dispensing bottles and unit dose pouches.

Dispensing closures among fastest growing accessories

Demand for pharmaceutical packaging accessories will expand at a slightly slower annual pace than primary containers through 2018. Dispensing closures, parenteral stoppers, security-enhanced labeling, and intelligent components will see the fastest revenue growth. Dispensing closures will see increased use in pharmaceutical applications as they offer improved functional properties. Parenteral stoppers will derive most revenue growth from new drug introductions, upward trends in shipments of injectable therapies, and advantages in drug storage safety.

Study coverage

This study analyzes the $17.4 billion US pharmaceutical packaging industry. It presents historical demand data for 2003, 2008 and 2013, and forecasts for 2018 and 2023 by raw and semi-finished material, by product (e.g., plastic bottles, blister packaging, parenteral containers, prefillable inhalers, pouches, medication tubes, glass containers), and by accessory (e.g., closures, secondary containers, labels).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 40 industry players, including Amcor, MeadWestvaco and West Pharmaceutical Services.
