Pharmaceutical Packaging Equipment Market by Package Type (Blister, Strip, Bottle, Tube, Aseptic Packaging, Wrapping, Labeling & Serialization), by Product Type (Tablet, Powder, Cream, Syrup, Aseptic Liquid, Aerosol) - Global Forecast to 2020
The global pharmaceutical packaging equipment market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2020. The market is poised to reach USD 7.24 billion by 2020 from USD 5.18 billion in 2015. The market is primarily driven by the growth of the generics market, rising need for novel and flexible packaging equipment, growing offshore manufacturing and contract manufacturing of pharmaceutical packaging equipment, and regulatory compliance mandating the replacement of old equipment.
In this report, the pharmaceutical packaging equipment market is segmented on the basis of package type, product type, and region. On the basis of package, the market is segmented into primary packaging, secondary packaging, and labeling and serialization equipment. The primary packaging equipment market is further segmented into aseptic filling and sealing equipment, bottle filling and capping equipment, blister packaging equipment, soft tube filling and sealing machines, sachet packaging equipment, strip packaging equipment, counting equipment, and others. The secondary packaging equipment market is further subsegmented into cartoning equipment, tray-packaging equipment, wrapping equipment, case packaging equipment, and palletizing and de-palletizing equipment. The market, based on product type, is primarily segmented into solid packaging equipment, semi-solid packaging equipment, liquid packaging equipment, and other product packaging equipment.
In 2014, aseptic filling and sealing equipment accounted for the largest share of the primary packaging equipment market. The large share of this segment is majorly attributed to the increasing use of parenteral vials and pre-fillable syringes. The growing demand for biopharmaceutical products has further increased the demand for containers with higher hydrolytic resistance and pH stability, which is also driving the growth of this market segment.
In 2014, North America accounted for the largest share of the global pharmaceutical packaging equipment market, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World. Asia-Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region during the forecast period, owing to rising contract manufacturing and offshoring of pharmaceutical manufacturing to Asia-Pacific markets such as India and China.
