Subsequently, key players are continuously innovating their product development activities to come up with solutions that allow pharmaceutical manufacturers to save cost while also deliver value to consumers and end-users.

Solutions such as embedding repeated watermarks in flexible composite structures or multi-layer rigid packaging formats allow manufacturers to prevent anti-counterfeiting of pharmaceutical products.

Anti-counterfeit technology embedded in packaging maintains the integrity of packaging as well as pharmaceutical products throughout complex supply chains. Hence, manufacturers in pharmaceutical industry are increasingly demanding packaging solutions that have a cost-effective anti-counterfeit solutions.

Temperature and Moisture Control Pharmaceutical Packaging to Assert Dominance

Biopharmaceutical industry faced losses of approximately US$ 35 billion due to temperature abuse in 2019. To maintain the stability and extend shelf-life of pharmaceutical products, extremely protective and active packaging are introduced by manufacturers.

High-quality, temperature and odor controlled, stabilizers, and moisture scavenging packaging is gaining immense popularity among pharmaceutical and healthcare solution providers. Manufacturing of embedded pharmaceutical packaging formats such as vials and ampoules, prefilled syringe and cartridges among others are expected to increase the demand for drug delivery solutions.

Key Takeaways

“Innovative packaging designs made from newer materials is expected to push sales of drug delivery solutions globally. In order to carve a niche, manufacturers are providing advanced packaging solutions. This is expected to boost the demand in drug delivery solutions market,”  says a FMI analyst.

Plastic is a Blessing in Disguise for Drug Delivery Solutions Market

Glass has been traditionally used in the manufacture of pharmaceutical packaging solutions, including bottles, ampoules, and vials.

However, there has been a gradual adoption of plastic as an alternative material solution and introduction of blow fill seal (BFS) technology. In order to capitalize on this trend, major drug delivery solution producers are providing plastic packaging solutions.

The delicate and heavy weight characteristics of the glass makes a challenge in the transport and shipping of the products in a long and complex supply chain in the pharmaceutical industry. Therefore, glass pharmaceutical packaging products are mostly being fill-in by packaging products made of plastics, including PET, HDPE, LDPE, PVC, and PP.

Plastics are cost-effective and easy to procure, to apply across product ranges, and convenient to transport. Plastic pharmaceutical packaging offers cost savings to stakeholders across the value chain, including manufacturers, wholesalers, suppliers, and end-users.

Plastics have also allowed fast-paced advancement in technology, including injection blow-molding, extrusion blow-molding, and 3-D design software for design improvement. Hence, manufacturers are extensively using plastic for drug delivery solutions.

Competitive Landscape

Companies operating in the drug delivery solutions market are aiming at expansions and strategic partnerships with other manufacturers to expand their product manufacturing capabilities and strengthen their global footprints.
