The global medical device packaging market size is expected to grow from USD 30.2 billion in 2020 to USD 43.3 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.2from 2021 to 2027Packaging for medical devices is an important step to maintain product quality until it reaches the enduserThe packaging process becomes complex for the devices that need to remain under sterile conditions throughout the distribution process until its applicationInstruments or medical devices used by paramedics in the field, for example, must be kept clean throughout the transit and storage processThese gadgets are designed to be utilized right out of the boxIn addition to protecting medical equipment from physical harm, packaging must also safeguard medical devices from infectionDue to their nature or the fact that they will be disinfected after being opened at the delivery location, several medical equipments do not require sterile packing. Such devices require packaging that shields them from the hazards of transportation and storageAdditionally, regulatory compliances for medical device packaging materials have imposed market players to improve the quality of packaging materials, which is projected to boost the demand for medical packaging materials worldwide over the forecast period.

Along with this growing geriatric population, changing disease prevalence, increasing awareness regarding early disease detection & prevention among the middle class, growing innovation to produce customized medical devices to meet the needs of the healthcare sector is fueling the demand for medical devices, which in turn, will fuel the demand for medical devices packaging over the forecast period.

The packaging materials such as polymer films, molds, paper sheets, and metal and glass ingots procured from the suppliers are processed to form a medical device packaging. The packaging materials are molded into desired shape and form to make medical device packaging. The products made from packaging materials include trays, crates, pouches, bags, boxes, clamshells, etc. Apart from producing medical device packaging, the market players are also involved in producing packaging products for industries including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, electronics, automotive and industrial. In addition, some of the medical device manufacturers are backward integrated to produce the packaging materials. Through backward integration, companies can achieve higher operating margins and customized ingredients. Medical device packaging manufacturers also face challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, like raw material suppliers and packaging material suppliers.

COVID19 Impact on the Global Medical Device Packaging Market

The medical device manufacturers sell their products bundled inside the medical device packaging. The higher demand for safe packaging customized for medical devices is driving the adoption of medical device packaging among medical device companies. Moreover, the availability of the number of vendors offering medical device packaging is further augmenting their use by the end-users. The medical device companies order the vendors for medical device packaging in bulk quantity. Furthermore, some of the customers of medical device packaging order customized packaging for their products. Most end-use companies acquire the packaging for their products from local vendors. The local medical device packaging vendors offer price flexibility and higher customization level. This, in turn, increases the profit margin of the medical device companies by avoiding extra overheads. The spread of coronavirus has positively affected the business of the medical device industry. The demand for certain medical devices, including ventilators, oxygen masks, oximeters, and others, which are used to treat COVID-19 patients, has increased drastically during the pandemic. However, the supply of medical devices has been hampered during the pandemic due to the disrupted supply chain.

Global Medical Device Packaging Market Dynamics

DriversGrowing demand for medical devices

Medical devices are a vital part of the healthcare system, as they are required in several medical procedures. The medical devices industry comprises apparatuses, instruments, or machines used in the prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of disease and measuring, detecting, restoring, correcting, or modifying the structure or function of the body for some health purpose. The application of medical devices is numerous, and the demand for the same is expected to rise at a significant rate in the forecast period. It has been estimated that the high demand for medical devices can be seen in the Asia Pacific region over the forecast period; this will ultimately increase the demand for medical device packaging in developing countries of the Asia Pacific region.

Most medical devices used in surgical procedures require sterile packaging until used in the operation theaters. A study conducted by Infinium Global observed that medical devices used for surgical procedures had increased around 5-10%. This, in turn, is fueling the demand for sterile packaging for medical devices. Also, the increase in the number of diagnostic tests and non-surgical procedures augments the growth of medical devices, fueling the demand for non-sterile medical device packaging.

RestraintsStringent regulations of the government

The packaging of medical devices plays a vital role in their safe delivery. It also needs to ensure the product’s reliability from the manufacturer to its final destination where it has to be used. The packaging of medical devices is regulated globally. The regulations vary with the packaging, i.e., whether the packaging is for a manual nonactive device, an active device, or a sterile device. Packaging standards include ISO 11607 packaging for terminally sterilized medical devices, ASTM F1585 Guide for Integrity Testing of Porous Medical Packages, EN 868 Packaging materials and systems for sterilized medical devices, General requirements and test methods, ASTM F2097 Standard Guide for Design and Evaluation of Primary Flexible Packaging for Medical Products, and many others.

Additionally, it also depends on factors like which country the company has to launch and its kind of device. For instance, in Europe, the company has to fulfill ISO requirements whereas, in the US, it’s usually 510K. Thus, such strict rules & regulations imposed by the government across the world may hamper the growth of the global medical device packaging market.

OpportunitiesTechnological advances in packaging

The medical devices have become increasingly complex; the ins and outs of creating advanced packaging have progressed to confirm the continued effectiveness and safety of medical products. Thus, medical device companies need to consider excess factors when designing & developing packaging, including material characteristics, human factors, overall cost, and sterility assurance. A key responsibility of packaging is to meet the continually evolving needs of medical device technologies; the demand for innovative packaging materials is also increasing. With the speedy developments of medical device packaging, original equipment manufacturers are pursuing novel solutions to overcome some of the weaknesses in the packaging. Additionally, some of the combination devices like the one which includes biologics have different needs and require good material performance at low temperatures. Thus, the increasing need for sterile packaged, tamper-proof, and nonreactive products with great performance & reducing total cost of ownership is boosting the technological advancements in the global medical device packaging market, thereby creating huge opportunities for the growth of the market during the forecast period.
