World Pharmaceutical Packaging

Demand for pharmaceutical packaging products worldwide will grow to more than $100 billion in 2019, an annual increase of 6.5 percent. Nearly 60 percent of total demand will come from developed economies, while accelerating pharmaceutical manufacturing capabilities and the adoption of stricter regulations to boost quality will spur India and China to the fastest rates of growth.

New Therapies will Drive the Fastest Growing Products
Prefillable syringes and parenteral vials will experience above average growth due to the development of new injectable biotherapies and other advanced life sciences. As in past years, plastic bottles will record the largest demand.

Developed Economies will Continue to be the Top Markets
On a national level, the US comprises the largest pharmaceutical packaging market, spurred by an advanced drug manufacturing sector that will commercialize sophisticated new therapies that require specialized packaging. Enhanced government regulations and new product development will ensure continued high demand and steady market expansion in Western Europe.
