Packaging companies are incorporating next generation features such as 3D packaging and enabling specific medical devices sensors to achieve the required small size and thin thickness to adapt to highly complex environment and surfaces of a human body. In addition, medical devices packaged are also focusing on 3D packaging integration technology that have higher accuracy and efficiency. With the increased technological and regulatory challenges, medical device manufacturers (MDMs) understood the value in determining the best packaging and sterilization solutions in the design process. Therefore, Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow, medical device packaging has evolved to become a two-way connected platform that builds real-time, digital bridges to share information, nurture relationships, and deliver insights like never before.

Shift from Glass to Plastics Packaging Material
In the recent years, plastics continue to witness high usage in medical and dental applications packaging. It is expected that the high-performance plastics will grow at a much faster pace than commodity plastics. In response to this trend, most specialty polymer manufacturers have developed their products portfolio to high-performance medical-grade polymers. Medical plastic products are transforming the healthcare industry. The increased use of polymers in medical devices has renovated the marketplace, with plastic medical devices progressively replacing other materials such as metals, glass, and ceramics.

Key Highlights

  • Rapid technological advancements in medical and novel medical devices require specialized packing solutions. Favorable patient demographics and a rise in the consumption of a wide range of medical devices are fueling the need for safe and effective packaging of medical devices.

  • Rising environmental concerns coupled with an increased focus on minimizing hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), as well as the need for sterile medical devices have led to the usage of innovative and eco-friendly packing solutions.

  • India is likely to witness the highest absolute growth of around 60% due to a sudden rise in demand for a wide range of medical devices among various healthcare facilities in the country. The covid-19 pandemic created significant growth opportunities for medical device manufacturers in the country and led to an increase in demand for packaging solutions for medical applications.
