Plastic-based Pharmaceutical Bottles to Trend in Spain Pharmaceutical Bottles Market
“The advancements in the drug delivery formats applicable in the medical and healthcare industry are having the most prominent influence on the market for pharmaceutical bottles in Spain,” states the author of the study. Plastic-based pharmaceutical bottles are the latest trend in the Spain pharmaceutical market. The availability of relatively cheaper polymers in abundance has brought the focus of manufacturers towards producing pharmaceutical bottles from plastic. According to researchers, this trend will shape the future of this market over the forthcoming years.
On the other hand, the rising preference for flexible packaging formats, especially blisters, and the advent of eco-friendly biomaterials-based bottles as an alternative to the pharmaceutical bottles are likely to reflect negatively to the demand for pharmaceutical bottles in Spain to some extent in the years to come, notes the study.
