Blister Packaging Market Outlook

Asia Pacific is the fastest market due to burgeoning growth of the pharmaceuticals industry, which has been driven by large populations in India and China. Increase in the geriatric and infant population has led to surge in demand for medicines. Moreover, relatively low-cost healthcare in countries such as Thailand and India has boosted medical tourism in the region. Lax regulations have hindered exports to countries such as US and Canada. For instance, India-based manufacturer Ranbaxy was banned from drug sales in US due to manufacturing and quality violations.

North America and Europe markets are also expected to gain major traction due to high consumption of consumer goods and electronics. Also, the pharmaceuticals industry in these regions is matured and with the high prevalence of lifestyle diseases the market is projected to grow further. The market is supplemented by Latin American and Asian markets.

Middle East region population has high disposable incomes which drives consumerism. Electronics and consumer goods are growing rapidly, driving the blister packaging industry as well. Decline in markets of Syria and Iran have been compensated by high growth in the GCC countries.

Latin America is a growth engine, with Brazil positioned as the fourth largest pharmaceuticals market in the world. Argentina, Mexico and Brazil are also among the largest producers of non-patented generic drugs, which are exported to over 40 countries from these countries. Mexico being a member of North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), has access to the lucrative markets of US and Canada, which has resulted in Mexico becoming a manufacturing hub for international pharmaceutical companies.
