The report predicts the global pharmaceutical packaging market to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period. 

One of the major trend is the rise in demand for ampules and vials. These containers are popular owing to the high bioavailability and fast action rates of the drug, and the drug is administered in the injectable form. In addition, trends that will keep on pushing the market are integration with protective technologies, popularity of superior plastics as a raw material, and growth in contract manufacturing will further fuel the growth of the market.

According to the report, increased adoption of prefillable syringes is a major driver, which is expected to propel the growth of the market during the forecast period. These syringes are gaining popularity because of the rise in chronic diseases where patients need to self-administer drugs multiple times in a week. This is fueling innovations in syringes such as multi-chambered syringes and technology to minimize leachables and extractables, thus driving the growth of global market.

Further, the report states that one of the key challenges is the fragmentation of the market. Most of the players operating in the market are micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs). The business models of large corporations are different from the business models of these small companies.

Plastic pharmaceutical packaging accounted for a market share of around 61% during 2015.
