COVID-19, Higher Manufacturing Costs to Thwart Market Growth

Several decades of product innovations have helped the packaging segment to cross a trillion-dollar mark previously. However, the global crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 has interrupted everything as manufacturing halted, self-isolation of people in their homes, and a heavy slowdown in global trade. The pandemic is expected to append economic challenges for sachets and stick pack manufacturers, slowing down the production and supply in near future. However, it is creating various new opportunities for vials and blister pack producers, as the healthcare industry is witnessing growing demand.  Despite heavy demand from end-use industries, producers are encountering various challenges in terms of insufficient funds, interrupted supply chain, and now emerging the second and mutants waves of the virus in 2021. Nevertheless, the COVID-19 crisis has led to the expansion of eCommerce for various products and consumers access the products with safety, while being in their households. This has allowed companies to continue their development through online sales channels.

The lack of technological advancements in the manufacturing of monodose packs is probable to hinder the monodose packs market. Moreover, production costs for monodose packs in the pharmaceutical sector are comparatively high from its conventional alternatives. Major factors hampering the growth of the monodose market are the use of plastic as an inexpensive raw material in the making of sachets, stick packs, blister packs, etc. Strict rules and regulations for the single-use of plastic in various regions are most likely to affect the growth of the monodose market. Moreover, due to higher tax rates, the cost for monodose packs in the form of vials and ampoules is anticipated to be high, which can be a cause of concern in the monodose packs market during the forecast period.
