Research and Markets: Global Pharmaceutical Packaging Market 2016-2020 – Rapid Demand for Pre-Fillable Syringes is Primary Growth Driver

January 11, 2016 | By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Pharmaceutical Packaging Market 2016-2020” report to their offering.

The report predicts the global pharmaceutical packaging market to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during the forecast period.

The rapid demand for pre-fillable syringes is the primary growth driver for this market. These syringes offer several advantages such as minimization of drug waste, increasing useful product life, and convenience in drug administration and are integrated with advanced delivery systems such as pens and auto-injectors.

Glass is the most popular packaging material for these syringes with the significant demand arising from the US and Europe.

However, the growing number of counterfeit products in the market is anticipated to deter the market growth during the forecast period. According to studies by the WHO, the counterfeiting rate among prescriptions sold through suspicious websites is nearly 50%.

Stringent regulations are being implemented by governments globally, to counter these risks. For instance, in Europe, under the new Anti-Falsification Directive, as of 2017, drugs that have been prescribed by doctors will have to be provided with a particular and unique code number, a feature that will represent that the packaging of the drug is new and authentic.
