Top Companies in the India Pharmaceutical Packaging Industry

Top Companies in the India Pharmaceutical Packaging Industry

The India pharmaceutical packaging market size is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.8% during 2023-2028. Pharmaceutical packaging assists in storing, protecting, tracing, and identifying different pharmaceutical products. It involves primary, secondary, and tertiary packaging that safeguards medicinal products from environmental, chemical, mechanical, and other hazards. It also provides information about drugs and prevents damage to products during transportation. Owing to these properties, various packaging products, such as ampoules, bottles, vials, blister packs, and sachets, are widely used across the pharmaceutical industry in India.

As per the analysis by IMARC Group, the top pharmaceutical packaging companies are leveraging strategic collaborative initiatives to increase their market share and maximize their profitability. They are also launching innovative product variants to strengthen their foothold in the market. For instance, Uflex collaborated with flexible packaging manufacturer Mespack and custom injection molding innovator Hoffer Plastics to develop easily recyclable polypropylene (PP)-based hot-fill pouches with material-reducing spout caps. This new pouch is designed to offer enhanced barrier properties, easy heat salability, and longer shelf life. Similarly, West Pharmaceutical Services Inc. has introduced the NovaGuard SA Pro safety system, which is a single-use accessory for prefilled ISO standard 0.5 mL and 1mL long staked-needle syringes to help mitigate needle stick injuries.
