Blister Packaging Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028

The global blister packaging market size reached US$ 24.0 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 33.9 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.65% during 2023-2028.

Blister packaging refers to a pre-formed plastic packaging which comprises of a cavity that is made using a thermoformed plastic and a paper or aluminum foil back. This type of packaging displays a large part of the content to consumers while protecting it from heat, UV rays, humidity and contamination. Due to this, it eliminates the need for cartons and helps in reducing packaging costs. Additionally, as it provides easy product handling and transportation, it is extensively used for packing toys, consumer goods, food and medicines.

Market Drivers:
The growing need for convenient and tamper-free packaging has proliferated the demand for blister packaging in the pharmaceutical industry. Moreover, factors like rising demand for unit dose packaging, sales of OTC drugs and monitored dosage system for improving patient compliance are providing a thrust to the market growth. Further, technological advancements in the pharmaceutical and food industries have enabled manufacturers to incorporate radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags in blister packs for simplifying supply-chain management. In addition, products like child-resistant packaging with push-through, peelable, pressure-sensitive and anti-lock mechanism are modifying the production methods. Some of the other factors driving the market include rising prevalence of life style diseases, ageing population, stringent regulatory requirements and increasing demand of generic drugs.
