Market Overview:

The global drug blister packaging market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in this market can be attributed to the increasing demand for blister packs from the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. PVC continues to be the most popular material used for manufacturing drug blister packs, followed by lidding foils and cold form blisters. Capsule drugs are expected to account for the largest share of the global drug blister packaging market in 2018, followed by tablets and other drugs. North America is expected to lead the global drug blister packaging market in terms of revenue during the forecast period, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific.

Global Drug Blister Packaging Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A blister pack is a type of packaging that is used to store and distribute pharmaceuticals and medical supplies. The blister pack consists of a number of small pockets or "blisters" that are formed out of thin plastic film. Each pocket is filled with medication or a medical supply and then sealed shut.


Polyvinyl Chloride is a thermoplastic polymer, which can be processed by injection molding, extrusion and blow molding. It has applications in food packaging as it provides good barrier properties to moisture and oxygen. The demand for PVC is expected to grow on account of its cost effectiveness along with the growing pharmaceutical industry in emerging economies such as China & India.

The global market for PVC was estimated at USD 8 billion in 2014.

Lidding Foils:

Lidding foils are thin layers of plastic or aluminum foil that is placed on top of the blister card to prevent the absorption of moisture from inside the blister pack. Moisture is one of the potential sources for contamination during transportation and handling, which can hamper patient safety. Lidding foils serve as a barrier between internal packaging components and external environments, thus preventing moisture migration within a drug blister pack.

Application Insights:

The other drugs application segment dominated the global market in 2017, accounting for a share of over 40.0% and is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. Other drugs include injections, inhalers, suppository bases and others that are used for treating bronchitis or asthma among others.

Drug blister packaging solutions are used by companies producing capsules & tablets drug as well as oher drug products such as injections or inhalers among others.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period owing to high product demand from countries, such as China and India. In addition, increasing healthcare expenditure by governments of various countries including China and India are among key factors driving the market growth in APAC region.

China dominated the Asia Pacific drug blister packaging industry with a revenue share of over 25% in 2017 due to rapid economic development coupled with rising per capita income leading towards consumer spending on health related products & services. Moreover, growing pharmaceutical industry mainly due to government support for promoting domestic production output is anticipated to drive regional growth over the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for blister packs from the pharmaceutical and medical device industries as a result of the benefits offered, such as protection against moisture and contamination.
  • The increasing popularity of drug blister packaging among consumers due to its convenience and tamper-evident properties.
  • Rising demand for child-resistant blister packs to prevent accidental ingestion of drugs by children.
  • Growing use of drug blister packaging in emerging markets due to the increasing awareness about its benefits among consumers and healthcare professionals alike. 5
