世界の医薬品包装市場は、2020年まで約6%の年平均成長率 (CAGR) で成長する見通しです。市場成長の主な促進要因として、事前充填シリンジの急速な需要拡大などが挙げられます。一方、偽造品が市場に大量に供給されているため、医薬品包装に対する規制が厳格化しており、例えば欧州では2017年から、医師が処方した医薬品に特定のコード番号を添付することが義務付けられることとなっています。医薬品包装にもそうした市場の動きへの対応が求められています。材質別にみると、プラスチック (ポリエチレン、ポリプロピレン、ポリオレフィン、PET、ポリ塩化ビニルなど) の人気が高く、全体の約61%ものシェアを有しています。
Technavios research analyst predicts the global pharmaceutical packaging market to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period. The rapid demand for pre-fillable syringes is the primary growth driver for this market. These syringes offer several advantages such as minimization of drug waste, increasing useful product life, and convenience in drug administration and are integrated with advanced delivery systems such as pens and auto-injectors. Glass is the most popular packaging material for these syringes with the significant demand arising from the US and Europe.
However, the growing number of counterfeit products in the market is anticipated to deter the market growth during the forecast period. According to studies by the WHO, the counterfeiting rate among prescriptions sold through suspicious websites is nearly 50%. Stringent regulations are being implemented by governments globally, to counter these risks. For instance, in Europe, under the new Anti-Falsification Directive, as of 2017, drugs that have been prescribed by doctors will have to be provided with a particular and unique code number, a feature that will represent that the packaging of the drug is new and authentic.
Plastic pharmaceutical packaging accounted for a market share of around 61% during 2015. Plastic is the most preferred packaging material as it is available in a variety of grades, has significant barrier properties, is chemically inert, and can be used to create attractive packages with esthetic appeal, which helps in the marketing and promotional activities for the drug. The grades of plastic used for packaging include PE, PP, polyolefin, PET, and PVC.
North America dominated the market during 2015, accounting for a market share of around 35%. The pharmaceutical packaging market in North America is dominated by the US, which is a highly competitive market. The demand for innovative forms of packaging in the country is propelled by stringent regulations by agencies such as the FDA.
The global pharmaceutical packaging market is highly fragmented with several multinational, regional, and local vendors. The local players have been offering innovative solutions at a lower price compared to the international players, leading to price wars. The small and local vendors compete on the basis of cost, as it is difficult for them to compete with international vendors in terms of quality, features, and range of offerings. The report predicts international players to grow inorganically during the forecast period by acquiring regional or local players.
