Global IV containers market: Introduction

IV containers are packaging solutions used for intravenous infusion and irrigation. IV containers are used to facilitate medication management and improve patient safety and experience. In a market where sterile packaging and storing solutions are of paramount importance for safe and quality drug administration, IV containers rank on top of the list of ideal choices. IV containers are available in a variety of capacities and configurations to suit the needs of medication. IV containers enjoy high preference in intravenous and intravascular infusion applications such as, blood derivatives and parenteral feeding. This is attributed to high demand for safe and sterile packaging solutions which are manufactured strictly according to health guidelines, and controlled process conditions. IV containers are prominently used in the developed countries, and as the developing nations increase spending on healthcare, the rising standard of quality healthcare is expected to fuel growth of the global IV containers market, thereby increasing preference for safe and sterile packaging solutions. This ensures a largely positive outlook for the global IV containers market.

Global IV containers market: Dynamics

The global healthcare packaging industry has undergone significant transformation in the last couple of decades, increasing the quality of packaging solutions over the years. This, coupled with increased per capita spending on healthcare and higher consumer awareness regarding safe and sterile medication has increased demand for packaging solutions, such as IV containers, which are reliable and efficient. The same rise in demand is expected to continue to fuel growth of the global IV containers market. Another major factor likely to increase preference for IV containers over the forecast period, is the availability of IV containers in various sizes, shapes and configurations. Also, certain events have shown a glimpse of what the future of the global IV containers market could look like. There have been many instances, when a demand for environmentally friendly packaging solutions has been witnessed from the consumer side.

As a response to these demands, some manufacturers such as Baxter Healthcare, B. Braun Medical, and Hospira Inc. have reduced production of IV containers with high PVC and DEHP (di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate). Plastic IV containers are known to leach harmful chemicals in landfills, thus resulting in decreased preference over time. Therefore, failure in emphasizing new product launches without plastic content might hamper growth of the IV containers market, over the forecast period. Also, one of the major factors which might hamper growth of the global IV containers market is advancement in medication technology. Technological breakthrough has decreased the amount of time required for treatment of patients, which might result in reduced growth rate of the IV containers market over time. Apart from that, features such as ease of handling, are expected to drive demand for IV containers.
