Pharmaceutical Plastic Bottles Market Outlook - 2027

Pharmaceutical plastic bottles are rigid packaging solutions that are used for packaging of liquid as well as solid pharmaceutical products. The use of appropriate materials to manufacture pharmaceutical plastic bottles is an important factor to ensure that the packaging material is best suited for the intended use. In case of pharmaceutical packaging, the material characteristics must match the performance requirement of the drug packaged inside. The different types of plastics used for the manufacturing of pharmaceutical plastic bottles are low-density polyethylene (LDPE), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polypropylene (PP), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). 

COVID-19 Scenario analysis:

  • COVID-19 crisis is likely to affect the pharmaceutical plastic bottles industry negatively, as a result of halted manufacturing and massive reduction in demand for luxury and non-essential services globally.
  • COVID-19 crisis had a mixed impact on the packaging industry, mainly due to closure of physical retail stores globally. However, the availability of online retailing has absorbed the high impact of this shutdown.
  • The requirement of ecommerce specific packaging is likely to remain strong, although the ecommerce companies would have to focus on protection of goods and sanitization of packages. 
  • In addition, the food packaging industry is on the frontline within the global packaging market, owing to the demand for essential products such as groceries and fresh food mainly from local e-retail sites. 
  • Industrial, transportation, and bulk packaging has faced a sharp decline, owing to decreased demand for non-essential goods during the first two quarters of 2020. 
  • Owing to the lowered disposable income of maximum population and weak demand for packaging from industrial goods, the packaging industry might face significant pressure of reduction in both wholesale as well as retail costs. 
  • Consumers are likely to stay hesitant for consumption of luxury products, travel, and hospitality services, which is expected to hinder the packaging industry growth in the future after the COVID-19 crisis. 

Drivers, restraints, and opportunities

Growth in the pharmaceutical industry worldwide supported with growing demand for blister packaging is a major factor that is expected to drive the growth of the pharmaceutical plastic bottles market. Besides, emergence of new innovative packaging technologies is another key factor that can potentially fuel the growth of the pharmaceutical plastic bottles market. Moreover, features of pharmaceutical plastic bottles such as cost-effective and lightweight can boost the growth of the pharmaceutical plastic bottles market. However, rising environmental concerns regarding usage of plastics are the restraining factors that are hindering the market growth. On the contrary, business growth strategies by key market players such as new product developments, mergers, acquisitions, and others are anticipated to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the pharmaceutical plastic bottles market during the forecast period.
