Blister Packaging Market Will Grow as of Increasing Demand for Pharmaceuticals and Consumer Goods During 2020 – 2025 | Grand View Research, Inc.

Grand View Research, Inc.
According to new study by Grand View Research, blister packaging market is fragmented as a higher number of suppliers are present across different regions, which decreases the bargaining power of suppliers.

The global blister packaging market is expected to advance at 7.4% CAGR from 2020 to 2025 as demand grows for unit-dose packaging, short-cycle medication, and a monitored dosage system to improve patient adherence. PVC has been the traditional choice in blister packaging for a very long time as it offers low prices and strong durability while maximizing product visibility at the same time. PVC pricing had been stagnant for some time before 2020 and it was generally readily available. However, during the Covid-19 pandemic, the housing market started to gain traction and the construction market continues to buy more PVC, hence the price has increased drastically, making it hard to procure PVC for blister packaging. Moreover, recent economic and environmental policy changes compel some brands to think and find a PVC alternative for their blister packaging. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and recycled polyethylene terephthalate (RPET) are the two major strong alternatives to the traditional PVC blister. It is majorly used in soda bottles and is known for its strong durability and transparency. PET and RPET are most preferable for brands with high sustainability goals as they can be easily recycled.

One of the leaders in the packaging industry, Amcor has already started working on developing alternatives for PVC in blister packaging. In April 2021, the company announced the customer trials of the world’s first recyclable polyethylene-based thermoform blister packaging named AmSky. It reduces carbon footprint by 70% compared to PVC and other alternatives. PVC makes packaging recycling more difficult or contaminates other materials if consumers attempt to recycle them. Therefore, Amcor’s solution eliminates PVC from the packaging by using a mono-material Polyethylene thermoform blister and lidding film.

Blister Packaging Industry Procurement Intelligence report, by Grand View Research, deep dives into the following insights from the industry:

Increasing demand for pharmaceuticals and consumer goods is fueling the growth of the blister packaging market – The shift from plastic containers to blisters in North America to enhance patient compliance for the growing old-age population is expected to propel market growth. Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) is expected to register the highest CAGR of more than 8% and reach USD 10.31 billion by 2024.
Fragmented nature of the blister packaging industry, with high number of suppliers present in different regions, has an arresting effect on bargaining power of suppliers. – With low entry barriers for new entrants, due to low manufacturing and operating costs, the blister packaging industry features a highly fragmented competitive landscape. Moreover, established industry participants are engaging into new product development, M&A, and strategic partnerships to enhance their regional presence and cater to the heightened demand.
Suppliers opt for a full-service outsourcing engagement model – Suppliers widely prefer approved provider operating models to reduce risks and improve the potential for value creation. As such, suppliers are expected to move from offering generic services to proprietary services in the future.

Should Cost Analysis – In the homecare contract manufacturing market procurement intelligence report, we have estimated and forecasted pricing for the key cost components while availing services from contract manufacturers. Raw material cost is the largest cost component of homecare contract manufacturing services. It accounted for more than 75% share in overall manufacturing cost. Among raw materials, chelating agents is the largest cost component with ~24% share followed by surfactants and buffer solution.  The price of surfactants is majorly determined by crude oil prices. However, in 2018, surfactants’ prices declined, irrespective of higher crude oil prices. As the demand for personal care and home care products increases, the prices for buffer solutions and others are expected to stabilize over the forecasted period.
Rate Benchmarking – As chelating agents are the most important cost component for cleaning product manufacturing, the type of chelating agents is one of the most important aspects while analyzing the rate benchmarking of homecare contract manufacturing services. In our research, we have analyzed the rates of citric acid, nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA), and phosphonates. These three are the most common types of chelating agents used to produce cleaning products. By using rate benchmarking analysis, we found that using NTA as chelating agents is 15%-20% cost-efficient than using citric acid and phosphonates as chelating agents. Moreover, due to their toxicity phosphonates are banned in the EU, Canada, and Australia. Hence, using NTS and citric acid is the most preferable chelating agent for homecare contract manufacturers.
Salary Benchmarking – Labor is one of the key cost components incurred while offering a product or service. Understanding the pricing structure of salary is important for organizations in selecting the appropriate supplier and to build a good negotiation strategy. It is also an important factor in determining whether the category under focus should be outsourced or built in-house.
Supplier Newsletter – It is cumbersome for any organization to continuously track the latest developments in their supplier landscape. Our newsletter service helps them remain updated, to avoid any supply chain disruption which they may face and keep a track of the latest innovations from the suppliers. Outsourcing such activities help clients focus on their core offerings
