World Medical Device Packaging

As Quoted In PIE Plastics Information Europe

The fastest growing markets include India, Mexico, China, and the more prosperous Africa/Mideast countries, where market and regulatory forces are raising packaging quality and functionality.

Global demand to rise 5.9% annually through 2017

World demand for medical device packaging is projected to increase 5.9 percent annually to $25.7 billion in 2017. Reflecting the operation of advanced and diversified medical product industries, the US, Western Europe, and Japan will continue to account for almost 60 percent of the total market. However, demand in these countries will expand below the average global pace as intensifying health care cost containment pressures and fierce multiple supplier competition weaken growth prospects for medical device production and heighten the price sensitivity of their producers to packaging costs. The fastest expanding medical device packaging markets will emerge in India, Mexico, China, and the more prosperous Africa/Mideast countries, where diversification, expansion, and stricter regulation of medical product industries are raising the quality and functional requirements of containers and related accessories.

US to remain top market

The US will continue to be the largest market for medical device packaging as its advanced medical product producers commercialize new high value-added supplies, instruments, and equipment with specialized packaging needs. Gains in West European and Japanese demand will also benefit from new product introductions, as well as from the upgrading of government and industry standards covering the barrier, security, and tracking properties of medical device packaging. In the developing world, China will provide the largest and broadest sales opportunities for medical device containers and related accessories due to burgeoning domestic and export markets for its medical goods. Spurred by rising internal and external investment, China is evolving into a leading worldwide developer and supplier of technologically advanced medical products.

Pouches, trays to remain fastest growing containers

Based on adaptability to cost effective infection-resistant and security-enhanced formats, pouches and trays will continue to lead sales among container types. Growth in pouch demand will reflect ongoing advances in strength, puncture resistance, and barrier properties, which will expand applications in the packaging of small- to medium-sized supplies and devices, including sharps. Multiple compartment trays will build sales as they virtually eliminate the risk of staff errors and the spread of infectious agents during the preparation of products for surgery and various other patient procedures. Clamshell packs will also fare well in the global marketplace as they match or exceed all the advantages of rigid trays while offering greater protection against product damage during transport and storage.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the $19.3 billion world market for medical device packaging. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by product (e.g., pouches, trays, clamshell packs, bags, boxes, labels, lidding), raw material (e.g., plastic resins, foils, paper and paperboard), world region and for 14 major countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 25 industry players, including Amcor, Bemis and Chesapeake.
