High Barrier Packaging Films for Pharmaceuticals Market

2019 Analysis and Review of High Barrier Packaging Films for Pharmaceuticals Market by Product - Cold-formable Films, Coextruded Films, and Thermo-formable Films for 2019 - 2029

Plastic Materials Show No Signs of Faltering

Manufacturers continue to flock to plastics for developing high barrier packaging films for pharmaceuticals owing to their excellent mechanical properties. Among various plastics, polypropylene (PP), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC)/ polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC) would remain the preferable material during the manufacturing process.

Stringent regulatory framework to tackle plastic waste generation is putting pressure on manufacturers to turn to sustainable alternatives such as aluminum. However, the attractive performance and cost benefits of plastics are enabling their broader adoption, as such, would be the material of choice over the foreseeable timeframe.

North America to Lead; Asia to Offer White Spaces

Strong foothold of leading manufacturers and stable growth of pharmaceutical industry despite reaching saturation are providing impetus to high barrier packaging films for pharmaceuticals market in North America. Represented by the US, the developed regional market would generate over a third total return to stakeholders. Going forward, pharmaceutical makers in Asia, especially China, and India, are producing drugs at large scales. Market players must grab this value-capture opportunity to stay ahead of their peers.

Market Players Embracing Advanced Packaging Systems

Premium pharmaceutical products are stored in specific environmental conditions to prevent the quality from deterioration. Flexible packaging manufacturers in the pharmaceutical industry are seeking high-performance films that provide custom barrier properties for various pharmaceutical drugs.

They are leveraging modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and controlled atmosphere packaging (CAP) as they keep the environment within the packaging as per product requirement. Further, high barrier packaging films for pharmaceuticals complemented with these advanced packaging solutions avoid exchange of gases across packaging and maximize the shelf life of drugs.

How Growth will Unfold

Growing prevalence of unit dosing in order to prevent contamination of primary products is boosting the application of pharmaceutical blisters. Capturing nearly 3/5 of total market value, manufacturers would glean better margins from blisters as compared to bags & pouches. However, this FMI study highlights usage of pharmaceutical bags & pouches to grow at healthy pace in due course of time. Despite their faster adoption, market players would stay focused on blister packaging to maintain product portfolio.
