The market is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of 7.8% from 2016 to 2024. In terms of geography, North America is likely to account for 35.5% of the market by 2024. The surge in the demand for pharmacy repackaging systems from hospitals and pharmacies is behind the growth of the market in North America.

This technique enables pharmacies to pack medications as per customer needs. This reduces wastage of medicine dosage and thus gaining popularity. The packaging for blister card/compliance packaging systems is done with utmost precision to ensure compliance to dosage, and as a result being increasingly preferred.

Some of the other factors likely to drive the market are: growing incidences of erroneous deaths on account of improper medications, fatalities in hospitals due to improper management of dosages, reduction in cost and errors, and stringent regulations that govern hospitals and other medical care centers.
High Cost of Implementation to Deter Adoption of Pharmacy Repackaging Systems
Some of the factors inhibiting the growth of this market include high cost of implementation and a lack of awareness among several regional markets about the benefits of using pharmacy repackaging systems. “The lack of awareness about the benefits of incorporating these systems is a problem in many developing nations,” said a TMR analyst. Developing nations are also cost sensitive and find it difficult to afford high expenses involved with the implementation of pharmacy repackaging systems.
