Based on raw material, the plastics raw material segment is expected to lead the market in terms of value in 2023. The market for this segment is driven by the wide use of plastics in OTC drugs, blister packaging, prefilled syringes, and the oral drug delivery mode. Plastic containers, including bottles, blister packs, and prefilled syringes, are widely used due to their lightweight nature, cost-effectiveness, and ease of manufacturing.  Plastics are permeable to moisture, oxygen, and carbon dioxide, and they allow the penetration of light rays unless the plastic container is pigmented. The pharmaceutical industry is increasingly exploring sustainable and recyclable packaging materials to reduce waste and improve environmental impact. 

Based on type, plastic bottles accounted for the largest share of the pharmaceutical packaging market in the forecast period. The pharmaceutical packaging market is influenced by advancements in biologics and biosimilars, contributing to an increased demand for prefilled syringes and vial packaging. Key factors fueling market growth include the availability and price volatility of raw materials and the evolving landscape of health regulations. Plastic bottles play a crucial role in pharmaceutical packaging due to their desirable characteristics, including shatter resistance, rigidity, strength, lightweight properties, and moldability. A significant trend boosting the demand for plastic bottles in pharmaceutical packaging is the incorporation of child-proof and tamper-evident features. Plastic bottles prove to be versatile for packaging liquid, solid, and oral care medications. 

Based on packaging type, primary packaging type is the largest segment in the pharmaceutical packaging market during the forecast period. The demand for both primary and secondary packaging in the pharmaceutical packaging market is increasing due to several factors including safety, and regulatory compliance, which helps to protect the product from contamination or tampering. The primary packaging segment in the pharmaceutical packaging market is influenced by various factors, including the rising prevalence of diseases, advancements in biotechnology & novel therapies, innovation in materials, increasing healthcare expenditures, diversification of product portfolios, adherence to regulatory standards & quality assurance, and consumer preferences.
