Pharmaceutical Packaging Equipment Market Size (2022 to 2027)

As per our report, the size of the global pharmaceutical packaging equipment market is estimated to be worth USD 9.30 billion by 2027 and USD 6.72 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 6.70% during the forecast period.

Pharmaceutical packaging equipment involves doing many tasks like fabrication, cleaning, filling, sealing, and labeling. They play an immense role in packaging drugs, which helps prevent contaminations and promotes a long shelf life. The packaging is essential in pharmaceutical companies to have safety for the products with seals and labeling effectively. The operations of equipment vary with the requirement and also to allow secure handling of the products. Automated machinery types maintain consistency, providing labor to have flexibility over the variations in the operating systems. Along with technical capabilities and labor requirements, the company can choose the type of machinery required for its applications.


The rise in the demand to manufacture quality drugs to improve treatment procedures and increase incidences of chronic diseases is the primary factor in propelling pharmaceutical packaging equipment market growth.

The growing production rate in pharmaceutical industries and rising need levels for flexible and convenient packaging processes further accelerate market growth. The increasing scale of pharmaceutical companies and the need to meet the requirements in the packaging of pharmaceutical products are also elevating the market's growth rate. These machinery types are flexible and complete the tasks significantly less time than expected and level up the market's growth.

Growing expenditure on healthcare across the world, the rise in the elderly population, and reduced labor costs due to the installation of automated equipment are also enhancing the growth of the global pharmaceutical packaging equipment market.

The adoption of advanced technology and delivery of drug products efficiently, and growing awareness over the availability of different treatment procedures among people is to surge growth opportunities of the market. In addition, changes in government schemes and the launch of reimbursement policy in favor of the ordinary people are spurring the market's growth. Furthermore, the availability of skilled technicians in resolving the issues quickly expands the demand of the market.


The cost of installing and maintaining the equipment is a bit expensive where small-scale industries cannot afford them, which is quietly declining the market demand. Lack of standardization and complications in installing advanced types of machinery may also hinder the growth rate of the pharmaceutical packaging equipment market. Stringent rules and regulations by the government in plastic usage for environmental safety also restrict market demand.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global pharmaceutical packaging equipment market:

The recent outbreak of COVID-19 hugely impacts the medical sector. The coronavirus's sudden outbreak has accelerated pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies' focus on developing effective drugs and vaccines against viral infections. Industries worldwide are facing challenges due to the various businesses shut down, which has resulted in several difficulties in the supply chain of raw materials required for packaging, resulting in demand-supply gaps. As a result, many industries employed in pharmaceutical packaging are compelled to stop their manufacturing and production processes.

The pharma packaging industry is getting re-worked at a massive scale, with technology playing the leading role in the transformation. For instance, Syntegon Technology, previously known as Bosch Packaging Technology, has seen a spike in its pharma packaging equipment sales due to the COVID 19 outburst worldwide.
