Increasing global drug counterfeit market, subsequent development of anti-counterfeiting drug packaging technologies and products expected to boost global demand for pharmaceutical packaging over next few years, according to report

DUBLIN , January 17, 2014 (press release) – Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/brbpd7/global_and_u_s) has announced the addition of the "2013 Report on the International and U.S. Pharmaceutical Packaging Market - Trends & Forecast to 2018" report to their offering.

Packaging of pharmaceuticals ensures protection of the product from various factors such as sunlight, moisture and other environmental factors. This in turn inhibits microbial growth and consequently extends the shelf life of the drug. Pharmaceutical packaging includes bottles, ampoules, blisters, pouches, vials, prefilled syringes and tubes among others. They exhibit various properties such as leakage avoidance, inhibiting the growth of bacteria and barrier against moisture.

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.

Growing demand for pharmaceutical packaging from Asia Pacific on account of increased contract manufacturing, ageing population and growth of pharmaceutical industry are expected to open new opportunities for the market. In addition, shift towards nano-enabled packaging to enhance barrier properties against light, moisture, and mechanical forces is expected to open opportunities for the growth of the market over the next few years.
