The number of elderly people continues to grow worldwide. In European countries, the average life expectancy was over 75 years in 2010 and is expected to rise to over 80 years through the next decade, which can be credited to the advancement in medical practices. The need for the diagnosis and management of geriatric medical problems will therefore rise, augmenting the demand for cartridges, ampoules, and other parenteral products.

Vaccinations are a major health intervention that has a significant positive effect on the health of the population. Immunization has a significant correlation with parenteral demand. Accreditation plans such as the Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP) and the National Vaccine Plan (NVP) by the United States, which are introduced by the government on a regular basis to eradicate health issues such as hepatitis, polio, and others, are anticipated to fuel the parenteral packaging market further.


Supply and demand variations due to fluctuating costs of raw materials such as polymers and glass are, however, impacting the sales of parenteral package solutions globally. In addition, downward pressure on prices amid strong competition from multinational manufacturers is creating a hindrance to industry expansion. Despite these challenges, the mounting usage of injectable pharmaceuticals may lead to a recovery in cartridge production, fueling parenteral packaging industry growth over the estimated timeline.

In terms of packaging, parenteral packaging market value from the vials segment is anticipated to be worth over USD 6 billion by 2032. In the healthcare industry, vials are tiny containers or bottles made of glass or plastic. They are used as vials to keep medications in liquid form, but they may also hold tablets and powders. They are often bigger containers used to transport numerous medication dosages. Vials are sealed with a rubber plug or a screw on a cap, allowing them to be resealed & reopened. The demand for vials is expanding internationally owing to the expansion of the pharmaceutical sector. The pharmaceutical sector around the world is increasing due to rising therapeutical diseases.

Based on material, the parenteral packaging market is categorized into glass and polymers. The industry share from the glass segment is poised to depict a 7% CAGR through 2023-2032. Glass is primarily used in the production of vials, cartridges, ampoules, prefilled syringes, containers, bags, flasks, and other items. Because of its impermeable and non-porous character, as well as the ability to maintain product composition, it is one of the most used raw materials in parenteral packaging. Glass also shields goods from UV rays, extending product shelf life. The widespread use of generic injectable drugs, combined with high demand from the pharmaceutical industry.

Asia Pacific to emerge as a lucrative revenue pocket for parenteral packaging manufacturers

Parenteral Packaging Market, By Region

Asia Pacific parenteral packaging market is projected to reach over USD 27.5 billion by 2032. The rising emphasis on the creation of sustainable and biodegradable packaging solutions and the advancement in manufacturing processes are among the key growth drivers. Over the years, there has been an increase in investments in R&D projects to innovate packaging technologies. Initiatives such as these will stimulate the development of efficient parenteral packaging materials in the region. APAC is also home to some of the biggest healthcare markets in the world, indicating the significant potential for the industry.

Technological advancements, manufacturing processes, and innovations in parenteral packaging across companies have resulted in rapid industry growth. Chemotherapy medicines administered intravenously are frequently utilized to treat cancer. The demand for these medications has grown significantly over time because of the growing prevalence of cancer in the region. However, they must be packed properly to preserve the potency of the pharmaceutical components in the medications, which is predicted to fuel the expansion of the parenteral packaging market during the forecast period.

Manufacturing capacity expansion by major players to strengthen the industry outlook

Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD), Schott AG, Gerresheimer AG, Nipro Corporation, Ypsomed Holding AG, West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc., Baxter International Inc., Terumo Corporation, Stevanato Group S.p.A., Corning Inc., Catalent, Inc., and Sio2 Materials Science are some of the prominent players in the parenteral packaging industry. These firms are focusing on strategies such as manufacturing capacity expansion to boost their customer base and reinforce their presence in the market.

Impact of COVID-19 outbreak on parenteral packaging market trends

Immunization and vaccination became essential health activities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since vaccinations against potential variants of the virus have become a top priority, the sales of vials and glass tubes have soared, especially in the U.S. and Europe markets. The introduction of immunization campaigns has also encouraged ampoules producers to operate at breakneck rates to address the burgeoning vaccine demand. The escalating consumption of sterilized glass syringes for bio-pharma drugs will thus support parenteral packaging material developers, even in the post-pandemic era.
