The study provides a deep-dive of the market for each of the product segments, i.e., primary packaging equipment, secondary packaging equipment, and labeling & serialization equipment. In 2017, the primary packaging equipment segment held the largest pharmaceutical packaging equipment market share. Innovation in primary packaging for biopharmaceuticals, ease of handling & shelving of pharmaceuticals after primary packaging, development of novel forms of drug delivery, and increasing regulatory norms & quality control criteria, are driving the growth of the segment. However, the labeling and serialization equipment segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the projected period, owing to the increasing importance of track and trace systems to ensure the safety of patients from counterfeit medicines.

Liquid, solid, semi-solid, and other packaging equipment are the main types of pharmaceutical packaging equipment available commercially. The report portrays a deep-dive of the market for each of these types. In 2017, the liquid packaging equipment segment accounted for the largest share of the pharmaceutical packaging equipment industry, followed by solid packaging equipment, and semi-solid packaging equipment. The high production of liquid formulations and increasing incidence of eye & ear disorders across the globe are fueling the growth of the liquid packaging equipment segment. Aseptic liquids accounted for the largest share of the liquid packaging equipment market in 2017.

In 2017, Europe accounted for the largest global pharmaceutical packaging equipment market share. Growth in the European market is driven majorly by the high pharmaceutical production, increasing demand for flexible packaging equipment by major pharmaceutical manufacturers, and the rising focus on product diversification by companies (which is driving the need for innovative packaging equipment in the market). Regulatory changes are also compelling pharmaceutical manufacturers to replace their older equipment with new equipment to adhere to the changing standards.

The pharmaceutical packaging equipment market in the Asia Pacific is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing offshoring of pharmaceutical manufacturing to emerging markets in China, India, and Brazil and the growing generics market are some of the major factors driving the growth of the market in Asia Pacific.
