Emergence of Plastic Products in Clinical Trial Packaging Fuels Market Growth
Glass has been traditionally used in the manufacturing of pharmaceutical and clinical trials packaging solutions, including bottles, ampoules, and vials. However, with the gradual adoption of plastic as an alternative material solution and with the introduction of blow fill seal (BFS) technology in global market, major pharmaceutical packaging manufacturers are supplying plastic packaging solutions to clients operating in the clinical trial packaging market. Plastic packaging solutions help to overcome several drawbacks and challenges of glass packaging. The fragile and heavyweight characteristics of the glass pose a challenge in the transportation and shipping of products in long and complex supply chain prevalent in the pharmaceutical industry. Hence, glass pharmaceutical packaging products are increasingly being substituted by packaging products made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyethylene (PE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and polypropylene (PP). Furthermore, these packaging solutions made of plastics used in clinical trials are cheaper to procure, robust, and convenient in transporting. Thus, these factors plastic products in clinical trial packaging has experienced significant demand over the past few years and projected to remain same during the forecast period.
