“Global adherence packaging market projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.2%”

The global adherence packaging market is projected to reach USD 917.7 million by 2022 from an estimated USD 679.1 million in 2017, at a CAGR of 6.2%. Growth in this market is mainly driven by factors such as the high rate of medication no adherence, technological advancements such as remote dispensing systems, and the growing need to minimize medication wastage. The emerging economies and government initiatives to improve medication adherence are the key opportunity areas for players seeking to expand their presence in the market. However, lack of awareness among patients regarding medication adherence is a key factor that limits market growth.

“The multi-dose packaging systems segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period”

On the basis of systems, the adherence packaging market is categorized into multi-dose packaging systems and unit-dose packaging systems. The multi-dose packaging systems segment is further segmented into blister cards packaging systems, pouches/strips packaging systems. The high growth of this segment can primarily be attributed to the benefits of multi-dose packaging, such as assisting patients with complicated prescription regimens, ability to enhance patient safety, and elimination of medication waste. Within the multi-dose packaging systems, the pouches/strips segment is expected to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period. These systems are cost effective, help reduce material waste during production, and increase reproducibility for continuous operations.

“By type & material, the blister cards segment & plastic film segment accounted for the largest share of the market in 2016”

The blister cards segment accounted for the largest share of the adherence packaging market in 2016. The large share of this segment can be attributed to enhanced medication shelf life, better tamper resistance, easy storage & transport, reduced medicine dispensing time, and improved medication adherence. Plastic film segment dominated the adherence packaging material market. Transparency, malleability, lightweight, and cost-effectiveness of plastic films are few of the factors driving the growth of this segment.

“Europe is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period (2017–2022)”

The European market shows significant growth potential for the adherence packaging market. Europe is also the fastest-growing market for adherence packaging. The growth of the adherence packaging market across Europe is primarily driven by the availability of significant government funding for R&D, presence of prominent adherence packaging companies, increasing prevalence of cardiovascular disease, and growth in aging population, which significantly increases the burden on European healthcare systems and boost the demand for effective and efficient solutions.
