An increasingly aging population, especially in the European countries, has been fueling the pharmaceutical industry from the past few years. This trend has resulted in increased demand for pharmaceutical blisters, hence driving the market growth in the region. Moreover, growth of the global pharmaceutical industry, on account of the rising prevalence of chronic diseases and lifestyle-driven health disorders, is expected to propel the demand further for thermoform packaging in the pharmaceutical end-user industry over the coming few years.
The thermoforming process offers several advantages such as lower tooling costs, quick product development and prototyping, and low production cost for smaller production quantities, over other plastic molding processes such as injection and rotational molding. Increasing focus on the development of sustainable packaging is expected to negatively impact the demand for plastic-based cups, trays, and lids. Thus, it may act as a restraint for the global market.
