Elastomeric Closures Market: Definition

  • An elastomeric closure is employed to close a piece of packaging. An elastomeric closure is able to regain its original shape when removed from the packaging. It can be in direct contact with the drug enclosed in the pack. Use of pharmaceutical closures greatly reduces the amount of interaction between the drug and the closure. Elastomeric closures offer low adsorption, chemical inactivity, enhanced drug/closure compatibility, gas permeation resistance, low moisture absorption, and lubricity for excellent machinability. In the pharmaceutical industry, elastomeric closures are used in various applications such as lyophilization preparations, powdered preparations, liquid preparations, and infusion preparations.

Key Drivers of Global Elastomeric Closures Market

  • Increase in health concerns has a significant positive impact on the global pharmaceutical industry. Demand for health care products has increased due to growth of elderly population.

Plungers Type Segment Held a Major Share in 2018

  • Among types, the plungers segment is expected to hold a major share of the global elastomeric closures market during the forecast period. Plungers are used in the pharmaceutical industry to improve shelf life of a packaged drug; to reduce visible and sub-visible particulates; and to improve compatibility of the closure with the drug. Stoppers are used for injectable medicines to reduce particulates; to mitigate patient safety risks; and to reduce variability. Stoppers can also help to streamline preparations. Needle shields are designed to fit the most standard pre-fillable syringes and impart added safety to inserts.

Asia Pacific to Hold a Major Share of Global Elastomeric Closures Market

  • In terms of region, the global elastomeric closures market can be segmented into: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is expected to hold a key share of the global elastomeric closures market from 2019 to 2027. The pharmaceutical industry in Asia Pacific is expanding rapidly, due to factors such as growing elderly population and impending expiry of patented drugs in the region.
  • The pharmaceutical industry in Europe is prominent across the globe, with Germany, France, Italy, the U.K., and Spain being among the top five countries in the industry in the region. Rising demand from the pharmaceutical industry in Europe is driving the market for elastomeric closures in the region.
  • The pharmaceutical industry in Europe was valued at US$ 208.1 Mn in 2018, making the region the second-largest pharmaceutical industry in the world. The pharmaceutical industry in Germany was valued at US$ 54.5 Mn. The country accounts for 24% share of the pharmaceutical industry in the region.
