Report Highlights

The global plastic healthcare packaging market was nearly 9.6 billion pounds in 2012 and slightly more than 10 billion pounds in 2013. It is expected to increase and reach more than 13 billion pounds by 2018, which corresponds to a 5.6% compound annual growth rate (CAGR).

Report Includes

  • An overview of the market for plastics in the packaging of healthcare products, segmented by pharmaceutical and medical packaging.
  • Analyses of market trends, with data from 2012, estimates for 2013, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2018.
  • Coverage of the most important economic, technological, regulatory, and environmental considerations in U.S. markets for the use of plastics to package healthcare products.
  • Examination of the industry structure.
  • Identification of the types of plastics used in healthcare packaging and the projected volumes for each.

SCOPE OF REPORT

This study covers many of the most important economic, technological, regulatory and environmental considerations in markets for the use of plastics to package healthcare products. This report is a global study of activities within the healthcare packaging market.

All market volume figures are rounded to the nearest million pounds. Growth rates are all compounded signified as compounded average annual growth rates or CAGRs. Growth rates are rounded to two significant figures such that 5.25% is recorded as 5.3%.

Some relatively minor resin materials and applications are grouped together in a miscellaneous category but are specifically noted.

There are also a wide variety of terms used almost interchangeably, which often makes it difficult to specifically segment several products used in healthcare packaging because, in many cases, they are multifunctional such as:

  • Trays vs. kits.
  • Pouches vs. bags.
  • Closures vs. caps.
  • Containers vs. bottles.
  • Closures vs. lidding.

A final point is that there are often times when there is a need to review some preliminary but important background details in the detailed pharmaceutical and medical sections for those readers who purchase certain sections of the report rather than the complete report.
