Blister Packaging Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024

The global blister packaging market reached a value of US$ 20.7 Billion in 2018. Blister packaging refers to a pre-formed plastic packaging which comprises of a cavity that is made using a thermoformed plastic and a paper or aluminum foil back. This type of packaging displays a large part of the content to consumers while protecting it from heat, UV rays, humidity and contamination. Due to this, it eliminates the need for cartons and helps in reducing packaging costs. Additionally, as it provides easy product handling and transportation, it is extensively used for packing toys, consumer goods, food and medicines.
