In recent years, the packaging industry has witnessed significant growth in demand from end-use industries ranging from electronics & consumer to pharmaceuticals sectors. This billion dollar industry is expanding at a healthy CAGR, and is being fueled by increasing global population and demand for product safety. Blister packaging widely uses common packaging methods such as thermoforming process to create small cavities in plastic with a backing of aluminum foil, cardboard or plastic, commonly used to pack a large variety of household, electronics, and pharmaceuticals products. The raw materials used in blister packaging are polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polychlorotrifluoro ethylene (PCTFE), cyclic olefin copolymers, aluminum foil, and others. The advantage of using blister packaging is that it is affordable, durable, and tamper-proof in nature. These attributes ensured adoption of blister packaging across various industry segments. The equipment used in creating blister packaging works on two principles: ‘thermoforming’ and ‘coldforming’. Thermoforming is used to create blisters with uniform wall distribution; whereas coldforming uses aluminum foil to form blisters, which provides an almost total barrier from water and air.
Key driver for blister packaging equipment market is its diverse applications ranging from industrial application such as in pharmaceuticals and electronics products to household products. Growth in the end use industry is directly associated with the increased incremental opportunity for the blister packaging equipment market. The global healthcare industry is estimated over US$ trillion in terms of revenue, and this figure is expected to experience accelerated growth over the forecast period. Also, increasing rate of healthcare spending in emerging regions is expected to boost growth of the overall blister packaging equipment market. Furthermore, global electronics market is expected to witness healthy GAGR, which in turn is expected to boost demand for blister packaging equipment. Companies are increasingly focusing on attractiveness of packaging, especially for consumer products and consumer electronics, and this is further expected to drive market growth. However, growing environmental concerns related to the usage of plastics is expected to hamper overall market growth over the forecast period. Companies can optimize growth potential by focusing on leveraging bio-plastics as raw materials.
The blister packaging equipment market is segmented on the basis of mode of operation, product type, end user, and geography.
