SAN FRANCISCO, June 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The global pharmaceutical glass packaging market size is

expected to reach USD 22.05 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period. Spiraling sale of generic drugs in developed as well as developing
economies is projected to drive the demand for pharmaceutical glass packaging. Glass has a well-defined supply chain in the pharmaceutical industry and is traditionally used for parenteral drug packaging. Extensive R&D is being conducted by product manufacturers in order to minimize negative aspects of glass, such as high susceptibility to breaking and delamination, as well as to improve the quality & efficacy of the product.

The pharmerging market is anticipated to witness phenomenal growth owing to favorable government policies and increased healthcare awareness. Governments of developing nations are expanding their public or private healthcare coverage and simultaneously making efforts to minimize out-of-pocket medical expenses for the consumers. Increasing government efforts to reduce healthcare cost and promotion of low-cost generic drugs are estimated to fuel the utilization of glass packaging over the coming years.

Emergence of novel drugs such as cancer drugs and bio-therapeutics is likely to help the market gain traction over the coming years. In an effort to safeguard patient health, guidelines for packaging of biological drugs have been made highly stringent, which necessitates constant development in the field of pharmaceutical packaging. Aforementioned factors promote manufacturers to adopt advanced techniques, thereby driving the market.

In primary pharmaceutical packaging, glass has an advantage over plastic as plastic production requires raw materials such as polyethylene, polypropylene, and polystyrene, which are largely dependent on fluctuating petroleum industry. Manufacturers use soda lime, quartz, and other additives for manufacturing glass. These raw materials are easily available in the market by numerous suppliers. Recent developments in the pharmaceutical glass packaging include launch of Gx Baked-On RTF and an Omniflex plunger, a prefilled syringe, by Gerresheimer AG in September 2017. This technology has the ability to minimize particle loads and meet strict requirements for therapeutic protein products for better deliver of drug.
