Growth Propelling and Limiting Factors for the Global Pharmaceutical Glass Packaging Market
Pharmaceutical packaging plays an important role in the delivery of medicines and other related products. In addition, packaging of pharmaceutical products such as medicines is a complex process, as its contamination can damage the quality and usability of the drugs. Some of the drugs are sensitive to direct contact with sunlight, air, and other environmental components. Therefore, medicinal companies adopt glass material for packaging which aids to protect from contamination. The glass material has various properties including resistant to chemicals, recyclability, transparency, and impermeability to air & moisture, which is another factor expected to support growth of the global market. Increasing consumption of generic drugs and growing access to healthcare services are some of the major factors expected to drive growth of the global market. Increasing governments’ initiatives to manufacture generic medicines to support the usage of these medicines against chronic diseases is a factor anticipated to propel the target market growth over the 10-year forecast period.
However, glass is fragile in nature, so lack of durability is one of the major factors hampering the target market growth. In addition, availability of alternative packaging solutions including plastic is a factor that could challenge growth of the global market to some extent.
