What is the Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on the Pharmaceutical Primary Packaging Label Market?

Rise in adoption of expanded content label design and growth in demand for cryogenic labels during COVID-19, as vaccines must be stored or transported in incredibly cold temperatures to maintain proper quality, are projected to further boost the growth of the market. However, stringent government regulations and standards expected to hinder growth of the market during the forecast period. On the other hand, growth in use of the smart labelling for patient engagement and identification are expected to offer profitable opportunities for growth of the market during the forecast period.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has disrupted workflows in the health care sector around the world. The disease has forced a number of industries to shut their doors temporarily, including several sub-domains of health care. The global pharmaceutical primary packaging label market also declined in 2020, owing to global economic recession led by COVID-19. In addition, the COVID-19 outbreak disrupted the supply chain across various end-user industries such as foods & beverages, healthcare, and industrial. However, the market is expected to witness recovery in the year 2021, owing to increase in demand for pharmaceutical products such as antibiotics & antiviral drugs and COVID-19 vaccines, which also increases demand for pharmaceutical primary packaging labels. 

For instance, in August 2020, Weiler Labeling Systems (WLS), part of ProMach Pharma Solutions, introduced their VR-72 labeler for COVID-19 vaccine packaging applications. Fully servo-driven with a modular design, this continuous motion pressure-sensitive system applies wrap-around labels to vials and other cylindrical products at speeds in excess of 600 vials per minute. In addition, increase in demand for cryogenic labels during COVID-19 for distribution of vaccines, which has positively impacted the pharmaceutical primary packaging label market.
