U.S. Pharmaceutical Plastic Bottles Market: Use of Recycled Plastic to Reduce Environmental Impact to Drive Demand, says TMR

Posted on May 09, 2017

The U.S pharmaceutical plastics bottles market is fragmented with leading players such as AptarGroup Inc., Amcor Ltd., Gerresheimer AG, and Berry Plastics groups Inc. having fierce competition among themselves. Small and unrecognized companies in the market are making a name for themselves and gaining more shares in the market by launching new products at reasonable prices, and this is intensifying the competition scenario in the market, states a research report by Transparency Market Research (TMR). Some of the players operating in the U.S pharmaceutical plastics bottles market are COMAR LLC., Pretium Packaging Corp., Alpha Packaging, Drug Plastics, O. Berk Co. LLC, and Tim Plastics Inc.

According to the report by TMR, the U.S. pharmaceutical plastics bottles market is expected to rise from US$6.7 bn in 2016 to US$9.2 bn by 2024, expanding at a modest 4.10% CAGR between 2016 and 2024. On the basis of application, the oral care segment will lead in the coming years, reports TMR analysts. By bottle type, the packer bottles segment is most likely to continue leading throughout the forecast period. However, the liquid bottle segment will expand at a higher pace in the period from 2016 to 2024. On the basis of end user, the pharmaceutical companies segment is presently leading in the market and is most likely to retain its hold over the market in the future. The healthcare centers segment is also expected to be a potential market for pharmaceutical plastics bottles.
