Pharmaceutical Plastic Bottles Market to Surpass USD 82.01 Billion by 2031 Driven by Rising Healthcare Expenditure and Sustainability Focus


The Pharmaceutical Plastic Bottles Market according to the SNS Insider report, reached a valuation of USD 36.5 Billion in 2023. This figure is projected to climb steadily, reaching a staggering USD 82.01 Billion by 2031. This translates to a robust Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 10.65% throughout the forecast period from 2024 to 2031.

The global pharmaceutical plastic bottles market is experiencing a period of significant growth, fueled by increasing healthcare spending, a growing demand for dietary supplements, and stringent regulations mandating safe and long-lasting packaging are all propelling the market forward.

Booming Pharmaceutical Spending and Eco-Friendly Innovation Drive Pharmaceutical Plastic Bottles Market

The market upswing is fueled by a projected 29.6% to 33.7% increase in global pharmaceutical spending by 2023, alongside a rising demand for dietary supplements. Stringent regulations for safe and long-lasting packaging further contribute to market expansion. Plastic remains the dominant material due to several advantages: cost-effectiveness (generally cheaper than glass or metal), lightweight design (reducing transportation costs by an estimated 20-30%), and impressive durability with excellent chemical resistance. While specific market share data for plastic compared to alternatives is limited, estimates suggest it holds a dominant position exceeding 60%. As sustainability becomes a key focus, the development of up to 50% recyclable and bio-based plastic bottles for pharmaceuticals offers exciting possibilities for the future.

Major Key Players Included are:

Berry Global Inc., Aptar Group Inc., Amcor Plc, C.L.Smith Company, Gerres heimer AG, Pro-Pac Packaging Group Pty Ltd, United States of America Plastic Corporation, Alpack Inc, Comar LLC, O. Berk Company, LLC

Segment Leaders in Pharmaceutical Plastic Bottles Market

PET is projected to capture the largest material share (estimated at over 60%) due to its lightweight design, enabling significant cost savings in transportation. High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is also poised for robust growth, likely exceeding 20% market share, valued for its superior barrier properties. Pigmented HDPE variants are particularly sought-after for packaging light-sensitive drugs.  Smaller capacity bottles, typically below 100 ml, are expected to hold a dominant market share exceeding 50%, reflecting the growing preference for compact and convenient packaging. Interestingly, plastic bottles designed for ophthalmic and nasal medications are leading the bottle type segment, potentially accounting for over 30% of the market share. This surge is driven by the rising use of corticosteroid treatments and a concerning increase in pollution-induced eye allergies. Screw cap closures remain the most widely used closure type due to their tamper-evident features and ease of use, likely exceeding 70% of the market share. Pharmaceutical companies are the primary consumers, but compounding pharmacies are also utilizing these bottles for customized medication dispensing, contributing to a smaller market share.

Russia-Ukraine Crisis Disrupts Pharmaceutical Plastic Bottles

The Russia-Ukraine crisis disrupts the pharmaceutical plastic bottle market. Key facility shutdowns, like Ukraine’s main petrochemical plant, and sanctions have caused material shortages, leading to potential price increases of up to 20%. Disruptions in resin supply due to logistical hurdles, like the halt of pallet production in Ukraine, can further elevate expenses. Major players are reevaluating sourcing strategies, potentially causing raw material shortages or cost increases exceeding 10% for crucial materials like polyethylene and polypropylene.

While direct production impacts in Ukraine may not heavily affect the U.S. medical supply chain, indirect factors like airspace closures and increased fuel expenses could lead to delays and cost increases for medical supplies, including pharmaceutical packaging, by an estimated 5% to 10%.
