Key Market Trends

Pharmaceutical Industry Expected to Exhibit the Maximum Number of Adoption

  • The North American region dominates the pharmaceutical industry in terms of innovation and differentiation and an increasing number of initiatives taken by the pharmaceutical manufacturing companies towards R&D activities. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved 41 novel new drugs in 2014, representing the highest number in the past 18 years.
  • The increasing manufacturing and research activities give rise to rising demand for regulations to ensure drug safety and protection. So, manufactures are collaborating with contract packagers to develop a drug adherence package that communicates dosage information through print and graphics.
  • As per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations in the United States, pharmaceutical drugs need high barrier packaging materials and sealants that are impermeable and resistant to solvents, grease, chemicals, and heat for better security protection. Such needs and developments act as a major catalyst for the increase in demand for ampoules packaging solutions in the market.
  • Also, the increasing demand for injectable drugs, due to higher ROI, therapeutic efficiency, and rapid onset of action are expected to drive the growth of ampoules in the industry.
