Packaging is one of the largest industry sectors in the world, worth several billions. Pharmaceutical packaging represents a meager percentage of this colossal market. The global healthcare industry has seen a shift in paradigm and is now skewed toward effective and meaningful packaging. Packaging was considered as an afterthought which was required merely in the final stages of manufacturing for many pharmaceutical companies about a decade ago. But of late, pharmaceutical packaging has quickly become an essential part of the drug delivery system as well as a core element of the marketing mix, through which manufacturers can differentiate their products from those of their competitors. As drug manufacturers approach the 21st century, they face a number of challenges that packaging can help them meet. The demand for pharmaceutical packaging is increasing and will continue to increase as companies rely more on packaging and labeling as media to protect and promote their products, increase patient compliance, and meet new regulations.
