This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the global vials packaging market by types of materials (glass and plastic) and by geography (APAC, Europe, North America, and ROW). The leading vendors in the market include Corning, Gerresheimer, O.Berkm, Schott, and Thermo Fisher.


Overview of the global vials packaging market 

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts that the global vials packaging market will grow at a CAGR of more than 11% by 2020. Stringent government regulations and industry standards for packaging of pharmaceutical related products have a positive impact on the growth of the vials primary packaging market. As per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations in the US, pharmaceutical drugs need high barrier packaging materials and sealants that are impermeable and resistant to solvents, grease, chemicals, and heat for better security protection. Several developing countries like China and India have upgraded their industry standards for vials packaging of medical supplies to maintain quality, safety, and reduce breakage, spillage, and contamination. Increased government regulations and standardization related to pharmaceutical devices and products are compelling the vendors to upgrade their products, which will increase the demand for vials primary packaging during the forecast period.

Packaging companies are focusing on the use of superior quality plastic materials such as cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) and cycloolefin polymer (COP) because of their exceptional barrier characteristics. These materials exhibit a unique combination of properties such as low density, excellent moisture barrier capabilities, high transparency, and resistance to aqueous and polar organic media. COCs are ten times less permeable to water vapor than PVC or any other packaging material, are halogen-free and eco-friendly. For instance, Topas Advance Polymer uses COC in vials, prefilled syringes, needleless injectors, and other drug delivery systems.

Segmentation by type of materials an analysis of the vials packaging market 

  • Glass
  • plastic

The global vials packaging market will see a rapid rise in the demand for plastic packaging in the forecast period owing to the various advantages it offers such as lightweight, cost-effective, and easy availability of raw material. Plastic resins are becoming popular in the plastic packaging segment because of their low cost, reduction in landfill waste, decrease in greenhouse gas emissions, and lower consumption of energy during their production compared to glass vials packaging.

Geographical segmentation ad analysis of the vials packaging market 

  • APAC
  • Europe
  • North America
  • ROW

During 2015, North America dominated the vials packaging market and accounted for more than 34% of the total market share by 2020. The demand for vials has been growing consistently in the region owing to the increased occurrences of diseases and increased need of preservation of the medical solutions. Glass vials packaging accounts for a major share of the region and the growing demand for innovative forms of pharmaceutical packaging in the US will boost the dominance of North America in this market during the forecast period.
