Recyclable process segment accounted for the largest share during forecast period


Recycled content packaging involves a process in which the waste packaging products are broken down and utilized to create a new product. It is a very effective method to minimize the waste generated from packaging products. Paper, metal, plastic, and glass are considered recycled materials. Retailers and brand owners are increasingly conscious of using recycled content in packaging manufacturing. This is because awareness about sustainability is increasing among consumers.

Primary packaging type segment is expected to grow at a highest CAGR during forecast period

Primary packaging refers to the material or container that directly holds the pharmaceutical product and is in direct contact with the commodity. Such packaging contains the finished or final products, called retail or consumer packaging. It is used to preserve, protect, and provide information to the end user. It is the total packaging that the end user will ultimately dispose of via reuse, recycling, landfill, or other disposal routes. Sustainable pharmaceutical packaging aims to reduce the environmental impact of packaging by using materials and methods that are less harmful to the environment.

Paper & Paperboard raw material segment accounted for the second largest share of the market during forecast period

The paper-based pharmaceutical packaging industry provides renewable, recyclable, and sustainable packaging that is reliable and economically viable. Although paper is rarely used as a primary packaging material, paperboard materials remain a major part of secondary pharmaceutical packaging. Cartons, blister wallets, rigid boxes, and others are extensively used for pharmaceutical packaging because of greater surface area and improved display of products. The attributes of the paper substrate include its surface properties, color, brightness, opacity, basis weight, grain direction, tensile strength, and tearing strength. Paperboard sheets are cut, folded, and bonded into the appropriate shape. Corners may be strengthened depending on the need, and the material can be produced as set-up paperboard boxes, folding cartons, or trays. It offers comfort, sturdiness, and effective product protection

North America region accounted for the largest share of the sustainable pharmaceutical packaging market

North America is the largest market for sustainable pharmaceutical packaging due to a combination of factors such as government regulations, consumer demand for eco-friendly products, and the presence of major pharmaceutical companies in the region. The major companies producing pharmaceutical packaging in North America are Becton, Dickinson, and Company (BD), Berry Global, West Pharmaceutical Services, Aptar Group, and WestRock, among others. In this region, the US, Canada, and Mexico are the manufacturing hubs of pharmaceutical products.
