Blister Packaging Industry Report by Regional Category Spend, Price Analysis, Key Demand, and Price Indicators, and Best Buying Practices

The global Blister Packaging market reached a value of about USD 15.71 billion in 2021. The industry is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 4.75% in the forecast period of 2022-2027 to reach a value of about USD 20.76 billion by 2027.

The global Blister Packaging industry report gives a comprehensive analysis of the industry, including key segments, trends, drivers, restraints, the competitive landscape, and other essential market aspects. The market is being driven by the growing demand for cost-effective and tamper-evident design for protective packaging in end-user sectors, including healthcare, food, consumer products, and industrial goods. In the industry report, the key demand indicator is the highest category spender by region—Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Industry Definition and Segmentation

Blister packs are pre-formed plastic cards containing pharmaceutical pills or capsules that are separately wrapped in a clear plastic casing sealed to the card. This generally has a paperboard backing, aluminium foil, or plastic lidding closure, and a clamshell blister flips over on itself. The packs are excellent for safeguarding materials from environmental influences such as humidity and contamination for long periods. Light-sensitive items are also protected from UV radiation by opaque blisters. The Blister Packaging industry report comprises segments by component (Films, Lidding materials, Semiconductor Container, Packaging Accessories), by type (Compartment Packs, Slide Packs, Wallet Packs), and region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa, and South America).

Europe and Middle East & Africa Regions are Driving the Growth of the Industry

Europe, the Middle East and Africa are the regions holding the largest share in the market due to the improvements in the healthcare system encouraging the rise of blister packs. Due to increased healthcare improvements and the sale of OTC pharmaceuticals, the blister packaging market is propelling.

The market is being driven by the growing demand for packaging that is distinct and difficult to imitate. Packaging is a viable alternative as the need for product safety from businesses, consumers, and regulatory bodies is rising. Product integrity and longer shelf life are critical in the pharmaceutical industry, given that most consumers store their medications in a temperature-variable environment that might damage unprotected pharmaceuticals. Adherence is better when drugs are packaged in blisters because customers can track their pills and doses. Blisters' unit dose feature decreases the chance of incorrect dosing, further driving the demand. Other factors driving the market include the increased prevalence of lifestyle illnesses, the ageing population, rigorous regulatory requirements, and the rising need for generic medications. Furthermore, increasing demand for unit-dose packaging, OTC medicine sales, and monitored dosage systems for improved patient compliance propel the market forward.

However, the inability of the packaging to carry heavy-weight products is hampering the industry growth.

Best Procurement Practices

Category Management Studies

In thermoforming, a plastic film or sheet is unwound off the reel and directed along the blister line through a pre-heating station. The plastic will soften and become malleable as the temperature of the pre-heating plates (upper and lower plates) rises. The heated plastic will then be sent to a forming station, where it will be formed into a harmful mould under high pressure (4 to 8 bar). When the mould is withdrawn from the oven, the plastic becomes stiff again and keeps its shape.

An aluminium-based laminate sheet is pushed into a mould using a stamp in the case of cold forming, and the metal will be extended while still maintaining its shape. These blisters are known as cold form foil (CFF) blisters in the industry. Aluminium in cold form foil blisters provides a nearly complete barrier for water and oxygen, allowing for a more extended product expiration date. The following are the main drawbacks of cold form foil blisters: slower manufacturing speed than the thermoforming, loss of package transparency (a therapeutic compliance issue), and bigger blister card size (aluminium cannot be formed with tight 90-degree angles).

Product Innovations, Further Augmenting the Procurement of Blister Packaging

The packaging is also employed in various consumer items, industrial goods, and food-related applications. In addition, blister packaging is utilised with a smaller number of resources for packing, holds up less retail shelf space, and has a tremendous hang-hook display. because of this, blister packs are less pricey than conventional packaging styles such as hard bottles, making them cost-effective. The adoption of novel technologies in blisters, such as radio frequency identification tags (RFID) deployed with a seal placed outside the packaging, is furthering the market's expansion. Furthermore, the growing need for compliance with safety regulations and increased demand for convenient and easy-to-use packaging products are leading to partnerships between market vendors and technology companies to broaden their product differentiation advantages.

The regional markets for the industry can be divided into Europe, North America, South America, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific.
