Aug. 29, 2007 - PRLog -- Gains will be driven by new regulations and standards requiring high value-added products such as blister packs, tamper-evident closures and RFID labels. Prefillable inhalers and syringes will grow the fastest while plastic bottles maintain the largest share of unit demand.

This study analyzes the $7.9 billion US pharmaceutical packaging industry. It presents historical demand data (1995, 2000, 2005) and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by raw and semi-finished material (e.g., plastic resins, paper and paperboard, aluminum foil, glass, plastic film, converted foil), by type (e.g., blister packs, bottles, pouches and strip packs, prefillable inhalers and syringes, tubes, vials and ampuls, labels, package inserts), and by market.

The study also considers market environment variables, also evaluates market share and profiles 32 major industry players including Cardinal Health, Alcan Packaging, MeadWestvaco, Alcoa Flexible Packaging, Amcor, Owens-Illinois, Sharp, and West Pharmaceutical Services.
