However, high-capital investment involved in the establishment of an ampoules packaging manufacturing unit is encumbering the market growth.

Growing Demand for High-quality Pharmaceutical Packaging will drive the Market Growth

The demand for high-quality packaging is growing in healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors. Quality assurance from pharmaceuticals for  the products that are packaged, manufactured, and are stored in a controlled and uncontaminated environment, has become an important component. Moreover, many innovative drugs are being released in the market, which require the right packaging solutions, with an emphasis on quality standards. Owing to these aspects, companies and manufacturers are following ISO standards, such as ISO 9001. To serve the growing demand, major companies like SCHOTT invested EUR 12 million in a newly established manufacturing plant in Russia, which serves approximately 500 million vials and ampoules every year.

Pharmaceutical Industry to Create a Huge Demand for Ampoules Packaging

Owing to the significant growth of the pharmaceutical packaging market, the global ampoules packaging market is accelerating. The advent of novel injectable therapies, due to research and advancements in the field of biotechnology, is also augmenting the market.  Moreover, strict government regulatory frameworks and industry standards for pharmaceutical packaging, are encouraging the growth of the ampoules packaging in developed countries, like the United States, Germany, etc. Light and UV penetration concerns have led to the increase in usage of ampoules in the pharmaceutical industry. These provide maximum protection from different wavelengths of light and are mandated in case of many drugs.  Due to its extremely moldable nature, ampoules plastic allows various shapes and sizes of packaging,  for varied applications in the pharmaceutical industry. This ready-to-use packaging solution facilitates pharmaceutical companies to react faster to new industry trends, without building specific manufacturing capabilities. This made companies invest in efficient pharmaceutical packaging, such as Gerresheimer, which offers a broad portfolio of highly-competitive pharmaceutical ampoules in pharma glass.

North America Dominates the Market
