World Pharmaceutical Packaging, a new study just released by the Cleveland, Ohio-based The Freedonia Group, analyzes the world market for pharmaceutical packaging products, which consist of containers, closures and related accessories for ethical and over-the-counter medication.
Specific products examined in the study include plastic bottles, blister packaging, pouch and strip packs, prefillable syringes, medication tubes, prefillable inhalers, vials and ampuls. Other products examined are IV containers, glass bottles and jars, other primary containers (such as aerosol containers and paperboard boxes), standard and specialty caps and closures, secondary containers, prescription containers, and labels and packaging accessories. Existing and emerging applications for pharmaceutical packaging in the world’s leading drug-producing countries are analyzed in detail within the body of the study.
Historical data (1994, 1999, 2004) and forecasts to 2009 and 2014 are provided in current U.S. dollars for pharmaceutical packaging products by type, region and selected countries. World consumption levels of pharmaceutical packaging raw materials, including plastic resins, paperboard, aluminum foil and glass, are also provided in the study.
The cost of this 445-page study is US$5,500.
