DUBLIN, February 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/ssq9c3/pharmaceutical) has announced the addition of the "Pharmaceutical Packaging Market by Packaging Type. Raw Material & Drug Delivery Type - Global Trends & Forecast to 2018" report to their offering.

Pharmaceutical packaging is defined as an economical means of providing protection, presentation, identification, information, and convenience for pharmaceutical products from the moment of production until it is used or administered. Packaging of pharmaceutical products differs significantly from food packaging. It is quite broad, encompassing, and multi-faceted task and quite challenging as it requires the application of a large amount of scientific and engineering expertise. Drugs need more care in their packaging than do most other products, because any failure in their packing could result in changes in the drug that lead either to a failure to cure, to illness, to injury, or even cause death of the patient.

The packaging material choice drives the pharmaceutical product's appearance and consumer attributes. It determines how a product is manufactured, filled, sterilized, labeled, bundled, distributed, and presented to the customer. It can influence where a customer looks for a package in a retail store, how the customer uses the product at home, and how a hospital, nursing home, or retailer handles a product through their inventory and distribution system. The primary and secondary packaging of pharmaceutical products is directly associated to their production and constitutes an integral part of the value added process while tertiary packaging related to the logistics such as cold chain. The primary pharmaceutical packaging for dosing and filling includes Ampoules, blisters, tubes, vials, pens, inhalers, syringes etc. and secondary packaging includes packaging such as Ampoules, blisters, tubes, vials, pens, inhalers, and so on.

The global pharmaceutical packaging market by product type and drug delivery type, has witnessed a significant growth in the past few years and this growth is estimated to persist in the coming years. The primary pharmaceutical packaging products constitute majority of the market globally. While plastic bottles, blister packs, caps & closures, labels & accessories contribute largely to the pharmaceutical packaging market; pre-fillable syringes, inhalers, medication tubes, and other new products will drive the future growth in the industry.

North America, Western Europe and Japan dominated the pharmaceutical packaging market in 2012 and accounted for over 70% of the market. These developed regions dominate the packaging market due their mature markets which consist of health conscious and high-spending population. On the other hand, Asia-Pacific is expected to overtake the North American & European pharmaceutical packaging markets on account of its fastest-double digit growth rate by 2018.
