This report studies the global Pharmaceutical Packaging Equipment Market, with forecast to 2018.

The Pharmaceutical Packaging Equipment Market has experienced extensive growth in the past few years, mainly due to the various advancements in the pharmaceutical industry related to drug delivery technologies. Factors that are expected to boost the market growth include a majority of the drugs going off-patent in the forecast period leading to an increase in demand for packaging equipment for pharmaceutical products and the shift in use of conventional packaging lines in response to the rising demand for flexible, automated, and integrated packaging lines from the pharmaceutical industry. However, the increasing cost of raw materials, use of refurbished packaging equipment for cost-cutting activities preferred among smaller pharmaceutical manufacturers in the emerging markets across APAC and the Latin American region, and the increasingly competitive environment are factors that inhibit the growth of the market to a certain extent.
