Analysts’ Viewpoint

Sterilization process qualifications in compliance with ISO standards have become necessary for manufacturers in the North America ophthalmic packaging market during the coronavirus outbreak. In-line camera vision inspection systems are being fitted in cleanrooms to ensure GMP is in place. However, manufacturers need to address filling challenges such as in small plastic containers that are light with a relatively high center of gravity and may lead to an easy fall during the filling process. Hence, companies should incorporate key filling system components including unscrambler and vacuum belts that keep an upright position of small containers during filling operations. Detailed product documentation has become necessary in ophthalmic pharmaceutical product packaging.

North America Ophthalmic Packaging Market: Overview

  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest report on the North America ophthalmic packaging market for the forecast period of 2020-2030, the market is estimated to grow due to high prevalence of eye disorders, along with the growing demand for brand enhancement and differentiation in ophthalmic packaging
  • The North America ophthalmic packaging market is expected to increase 1.8 times of the current market value by the end of 2030. Ophthalmic packaging has become of high importance to protect the formulation from external environment to keep the efficacy of the drug intact to maintain its quality and safety throughout its shelf life, which is likely to augment its sales in the years to come.

Single-dose Eye Drop Packaging an Innovative Alternative to Traditional Ophthalmic Medication Packaging

  • Ophthalmic diseases and eye problems require medication, which is mostly stored in multi-dose containers and dropper bottles. Most ophthalmic medications are made using a simple solution; however, the dropper bottles have limitations associated with designs. Major issues for ophthalmic packaging designs have been storage issues and precise dosing.
  • Challenges associated with traditional eye drop packaging have led many pharmaceutical companies to launch novel ophthalmic packaging options. They have pursued these alternatives by contracting with packaging and filling companies. Unit-dose packaging overcomes the limitations of traditional ophthalmic medication packaging.
  • Cost-effectiveness and durability have made multi-dose packaging a widely accepted choice for ophthalmic packaging. However, long-term storage can lead to the solution being in the dropper for a long time, which might result in chemical interaction with the packaging material. This can corrupt medication, causing irritation, and burning sensation upon application. Furthermore, many ophthalmic medications require exact dosages to be applied in each eye, which is a challenge with multi-dose packaging solutions.
  • Thus, single-dose packaging allows overcoming both these challenges without compromising on the quality of the product

Rapid Growth of Generic Drugs to Create Opportunities for Ophthalmic Packaging Market in North America

  • The volume of generic drugs is expected to rise significantly, and the TMR team predicts that the forecast average volume growth of 2.5% a year from 2020 to 2024.
