Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Contract Packaging Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global contract packaging market: Deufol, FedEx, Stamar Packaging, Unicep, Sonoco, and Multi-Pack Solutions.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Growing e-commerce industry. The rising Internet penetration and increasing trend of online buying will boost the global contract packaging market during the forecast period. This is because companies that are selling their products through the e-commerce platform lack in-house packaging facility. Therefore, they are bound to go with third-party packaging or contract packaging services.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Technology implementations. With growing technological implementations in the global contract packaging market, the market is growing because of fast-paced solutions provided by companies. In August 2017, Surepharm Services, a Contract Manufacturing Organization, installed the Blister Express Center 300 (BEC 300) to enhance its productivity. It offers easy, quick, and reliable solutions to fulfil the packaging needs with minimum 10 medicines in varying pack sizes, besides enhancing the flexibility to meet the broad range of contracts. This machine features a three-dimensional (3D) format changeover in less than 30 minutes.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is In-house packaging. The manufacturing companies are sometimes comfortable with having the control of the complete production cycle, beginning from production and culminating in the distribution of products. Additionally, contract packaging can be time-consuming as products are transported several times among manufacturers and packagers. Some other reasons that may encourage the use of in-house packaging are an unwillingness to share information with contract packagers, availability of in-house machinery and staff, and high switching costs in situations when the relation between manufacturer and packager does not go well.
