The market for pharmaceutical glass bottles will continue to grow


Affected by COVID-19, the global pharmaceutical glass packaging market is expanding and is expected to reach US$26.6 billion in 2027. Bottles, as one of the segments of pharmaceutical glass packaging, is projected to record a 6.1% CAGR and reach US$8.6 Billion during 2020-2027.

Among all kinds of pharmaceutical glass bottles, vials and ampoules are the two most common ones. Vials are made of borosilicate glass or soda lime glass and are used to store liquids, tablets, or powdered drugs. Vials have good sealing and temperature resistance, so they are often used in packaging vaccines, biological preparations, and freeze-dried drugs. Ampoules are hard glass containers that can be melted and are often used to store vaccines, serums, or other injectable drugs. The demand for vaccine containers such as vials and ampoules will continue to grow in the coming years due to the continuing trend of relapses after the COVID-19 pandemic. Analysts at GIA believe that the global vials market is expected to grow at an 8.6% CAGR by 2027, and the global ampoules market will rise from US$2.7 Billion in 2020 to US$5.2 Billion in 2027.

Due to the fragile nature of glass containers, they may be damaged during transportation and storage. Therefore, before drugs enter the market, pharmaceutical manufacturers usually carry out outer packaging in glass containers, and our series of XWZ cartoners and DPP plate blister packaging machines can meet such needs. Our machines can complete a variety of vials and ampoules packaging, including multiple vials with trays and single vials. For the consideration of environmental protection and cost saving of packaging materials, we can also realize the packing of multiple vials without support. In addition, our machines can easily complete the AL/PL blister of ampoules and the packaging of injection needles and injections.

If you want to order our products or want to know more about our machines, you can ask us for consulting services through the official website, Hoping Machinery sincerely looks forward to your visit!
