As per our report, the global pharmaceutical packaging equipment market is estimated to be worth USD 10.58 billion by 2029 and USD 7.65 billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of 6.70% during the forecast period.

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

MARKET DRIVERS

The growing demand for manufacturing quality drugs to improve treatment procedures and increase incidences of chronic diseases is majorly propelling pharmaceutical packaging equipment market growth.

The growing population worldwide and increasing patient count suffering from various diseases demand greater drug production, which is expected to promote market growth. The growing aging population is expected to contribute to the growth of the pharmaceutical packaging equipment market. According to the data published by World Health Organization (WHO), one person in every six people is expected to be more than 60 years by 2030. Aged people are much more likely to get diagnosed with various diseases, and the usage of drugs is more among people aged. Therefore, more machinery and workforce are required to produce the drugs to the required usage level. Packaging plays a sensitive role in the manufacturing of pharmaceutical drugs and various types of packaging equipment to package pharmaceutical goods depending upon the type of the product.

In addition, 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, complete tasks in significantly less time than expected, and level up the market's growth. In addition, the growing expenditure on healthcare worldwide, 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.

Furthermore, the growing adoption of technological improvements in manufacturing pharmaceutical goods and delivery of drug products efficiently and growing awareness over the availability of different treatment procedures among people are expected to offer lucrative growth possibilities to the companies operating in the pharmaceutical packaging equipment market. In addition, changes in government schemes and the launch of reimbursement policies in favor of ordinary people are spurring the market's growth. Furthermore, the availability of skilled technicians to resolve the issues quickly expands the market's growth.

MARKET RESTRAINTS

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. In addition, industries worldwide face challenges due to the various businesses shut down, resulting 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. As a result, the pharma packaging industry is getting reworked 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.
