Development trend of European pharmaceutical packaging market (II)

glass packaging

glass products account for 9% of annual sales. Both glass bottles and ampoules are being challenged by plastic products, but the excellent barrier and good sensory properties of glass can often make up for the fragile defects that will consume the capital of the searcher's accounting machine

the development trend of packaging is having a complex impact on the glass industry, because glass is regarded as a packaging material with better quality than plastic. For drug manufacturers, image is becoming a higher priority. On the contrary, this trend is transforming containers to blister eye packaging. Although the speed is slow, it is likely to increase the pace. In Britain, traditionally, pharmacists will be prohibited from repacking tablets into bottles. As mentioned earlier, bottles used to repackage tablets are now often plastic

due to the impact of packaging regulations on glass sales, the consumption will decrease in the short term, and will further decline slightly in 2007. However, stable products will still be packaged in glass, not only because of its good quality, but also because there is no choice in reality for some drug packaging

there is a trend to resist the use of glass bottles in the market. Even when glass seems to be unchallengeable (such as the packaging of cough potion), some pharmaceutical companies are beginning to accept the shorter expiry date of products and have obtained the benefits of plastic packaging. Glass tubes can be used to produce ampoules, vials and syringes. In fact, only 5% of these products are made of non glass materials. This has become the main market of the glass industry and accounts for the majority in quantity and value. With the development of many recombinant DNA products that can only be administered by non oral routes, the production of ampoules and vials began to grow. However, with the development of needle free powder and liquid injection systems, the use of ordinary syringes will decline

there will be no progress in the type and use of glass, but competitive drug delivery methods can reduce the progress in the number and type of injections, especially in Europe, including nasal sprays, inhalants, oral forms (usually enteric coating), transdermal patches and needle free injections to build new chemical materials, high-performance fibers and composites, magnetic materials The transmission system of several globally competitive industrial bases, such as fluorosilicone new materials and optical film materials, will affect the sales of glass packaging

metal packaging

metal can be used to make containers (especially aerosol containers), foldable tubes, needles, bottle caps, bottle seals, aluminum foil and small bags in blister eye packaging, etc. Although metal packaging is relatively expensive, the use of metals (mainly aluminum) is unlikely to decline in the near future. Metal is a material that can withstand pressure. The trend of plastic used in bottle caps and capping devices has developed to its due extent, and the popularity of plastic in foldable tubes should also increase

it is estimated that the incidence rate of asthma may continue to increase in the next 10 years, and the pharmaceutical industry will produce more aerosols. The use of pressure vessels will increase greatly in the next 10 years, which depends on the development level of needle free injection system. This is a technology that uses compressed helium or air to push drugs through the skin, and the further increase of this technology will reduce the use of needles. If this technology is popularized, the total use of metals may decline rather than increase

metal foil and holographic technology are expected to increase the use of metals in drug packaging, so various methods of anti destruction, anti theft and piracy have been developed. Although its use will not have much space, it will slightly increase the amount of metal in general

there are still outstanding problems in using aluminum foil as the bottom seal of blister eye packaging, which reduces the recyclability of packaging materials, and the developed all plastic packaging is also available. On the other hand, it provides a better barrier than plastic and provides convenience for patients. All metal packaging is still an option, which can be used to pack larger or fragile tablets. Although it is a more expensive one, it can well meet the requirements of environmental protection packaging. In short, the amount of metal, especially aluminum, which is a part of blister eye packaging material, will not be reduced
