Global Pharmaceutical Glass Packaging Market to Reach US$ 12.63 Billion by 2027, Spurred by Expanding Pharmaceutical Industry

Published on Jun 01, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Pharmaceutical Glass Packaging Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global pharmaceutical glass packaging market size reached US$ 8.05 Billion in 2021. Glass is widely utilized as a primary packaging material for various pharmaceutical products. It extends the shelf life, preserves volatile ingredients, minimizes the chances of accidental breakage, and protects the pharmaceutical products against damage caused by the external environment such as air, moisture, and light. In addition, colored glass, such as amber and red-colored glass, protects the contents from ultraviolet (UV) rays and specific wavelengths. Moreover, glass packaging finds extensive applications in the pharmaceutical industry as it preserves temperature-sensitive drugs such as vaccines and insulin.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Pharmaceutical Glass Packaging Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the expanding pharmaceutical industry. Nowadays, glass packaging is used to protect pharmaceutical contents against physical damage, hydrolysis, and oxidation, prevent their biological contamination and reduce the drug’s susceptibility to degradation. In addition, the introduction of innovative product variants by leading manufacturers, such as thin and lightweight glass bottles to minimize the overall consumption of energy and raw materials, represents another major growth-inducing factor. Besides this, governing authorities of numerous countries are taking several favorable initiatives to encourage the usage of recycled glass to reduce the carbon footprint. This, coupled with the widespread prevalence of chronic diseases like diabetes and obesity and the rising healthcare consciousness among the masses, is contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the growing awareness regarding the adverse effects of plastic packaging, ongoing research and development (R&D) activities, and the emerging demand for patient-oriented medicines such as biologics is creating a favorable market outlook across the globe. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 12.63 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.40% during the forecast period (2022-2027).
