Palm Beach, FL – September 26, 2023 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – The Global Medical Device Packaging market is anticipated to continue its growth rate in several coming years. Medical device packaging applications employ various materials and methods. The packaging material which remains in direct contact with the healthcare devices is called primary packing material and the material which protects the primary packaging is called secondary packing materials. Some of the key secondary packaging materials used are paper or cardboard boxes. Tertiary packing systems such as a carton box are generally used for bulk storage and transportation application of the medical device. The medical packaging material must be compatible with the sterilization process, i.e., these medical packaging shall retain the sterile condition, till the pack is broken. Furthermore, packaging systems for non-sterile devices should maintain their cleanliness and integrity. According to the report published by Facts Factors, the global medical device packaging market size was worth around USD 31.75 billion in 2021 and is predicted to grow to around USD 50.70 billion by 2028 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of roughly 6.96% between 2022 and 2028. Active Companies in the markets today include Sharps Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: STSS), Stevanato Group S.p.A. (NYSE: STVN), West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. (NYSE: WST), Becton, Dickinson and Company (NYSE: BDX), Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE).
The Facts Factors report said: “Some of the key types of medical devices include overwraps, bags, pouches, trays, and clamshells comprising various materials. These materials are flexible as well as rigid. Paper is being increasingly used in medical device packaging. Further, to offer clean peal performance, these packaging papers are being impregnated with polymer and latex. Meanwhile, plastics are used as film (flexible) and sheets (semi-rigid and rigid) for medical device packaging. Furthermore, aluminum is also used as foil or vacuum-deposited on film which acts as a barrier for oxygen, light, and moisture. These materials are used for shipping and storing various medical devices such as syringes, incubators, dialysis machines, elastic bandages, gloves, catheters, pacemakers, dental lasers, valves, and others. Considering the growing demand for medical devices in the healthcare sector, the demand for medical device packaging is likely to rise, in the coming years.”
