DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ptdnqk/global_and_u_s) has announced the addition of the "Global And U.S. Pharmaceutical Packaging Market For Manufacturing And Contract Packaging - Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends & Forecast, 2012 - 2018" report to their offering.
Development of new packaging solutions which provide product protection, quality, patient comfort and compliance, and security needs are expected to increase consumer consumption. This in turn is expected to drive the market for novel pharmaceutical packaging. In addition, increasing global drug counterfeit market and the subsequent development of anti-counterfeiting drug packaging technologies and products is expected to boost the demand for pharmaceutical packaging over the next few years. Furthermore, introduction and implementation of numerous stringent regulations and standards for pharmaceutical packaging by regulatory bodies such as Healthcare Compliance Packaging Council (HCPC), National Quality Forum (NQF) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to fuel the growth of the market within the forecast period. However, availability of raw materials and volatility in the price of raw materials is expected to hamper the growth of the market. Moreover, complicated registration procedure of packaging is expected to be a key challenge in the growth of the market.
North America dominated the pharmaceutical packaging market and accounted for over 30% of the market in 2011. The dominance of the North American region in the packaging market is primarily due to the large demand of pharmaceutical packaging in the U.S. and Canada. However, Asia Pacific is expected to show the fastest growth within the forecast period due to increased contract manufacturing activities, ageing population and growth of medical industry. Asia Pacific is expected to account for over 25% of the market by 2018.
The pharmaceutical packaging market was highly fragmented in nature with the top five companies accounting for less than 25% of the market in 2011.
