“Pre-filled syringes segment is expected to be the fastest-growing type for pharmaceutical packaging during the forecast period.”

Pre-filled syringes are a replacement for traditional vials and syringes. The prefilled syringes aids to reduce wastage, provide patient compliance by offering self-administered metered dosage. The presence of the properties mentioned above, easy handling, and reduction in breakage failure provided by these syringes, boosts demand for pre-filled syringes. The rise in aging population, increase in non-communicable disease such as diabetes, are driving the demand for pre-filled syringes.

“Plastic & polymers is expected to be the largest raw material used in pharmaceutical packaging during the forecast period.”

Plastic & polymers are the major raw material type used for pharmaceutical packaging. Variety of plastics such as HDPE, LDPE, PET, and others are used for pharmaceutical packaging. These are cost-effective raw material with excellent shatter resistance hence reduces loss due to breakage.

Plastic can be easily formed in the required shapes such as vials, bottles, syringes, and others. Also, it can be combined with metals such as aluminum to form laminations for flexible packaging. Presence of these properties acts as the major driver for the use of plastic material in pharmaceutical packaging.

“North America is projected to be the largest pharmaceutical packaging market during the forecast period.”
