Global Blister Packaging Demand by Component

  • Major components used while making blister packs are forming film, lidding material, heat sealant (additives), and ink for printing
  • Forming films account for nearly 80–85 percent, and lidding materials occupy 15–20 percent of the overall blister packaging weight
  • Films are expected to witness the highest growth at a CAGR of 7.5–8 percent during 2018–2023. This is because thermoforming films are preferred over Cold-form Foils (CFF), which are made of Alu completely
  • Lidding materials include paper, film, and Alu sheets. Paper and plastic films are gaining prominence over Alu lidding material, due to ease in innovation pertaining to child-resistance or easy-open-feature
  • These CFF types of packs provide less transparency and slow production speeds compared to thermoformed films, which offers clear visibility and optimizes production
  • Secondary containers, which include folding boxes, cartons, prescription containers, etc., are growing at 7–7.5 percent CAGR
  • Packaging accessories are inserts, shrink material, security components, tamper evident seals. Packaging inserts are drivers for any packaging format, as it aides patient compliance and provide complete product information
