Market driven by growing aging population, rapid rise in chronic & infectious diseases, growth in the overall pharmaceutical market, growing technological advancements, growing need to comply with various regulations, and increasing demand for flexible and integrated pharmaceutical packaging equipment. However, demand of refurbished products and huge unused production capacities in the pharmaceutical sector may hinder the growth of the overall pharmaceutical processing & packaging equipment market to some extent.

The pharmaceutical processing & packaging equipment market is segmented based on mode of drug delivery, secondary packaging equipment market by type, end-of-line packaging equipment market by type, and geography.

Based on mode of drug delivery, the global pharmaceutical processing & primary packaging equipment market is segmented into oral, parenteral, topical, and others. Oral formulations are currently leading the pharmaceutical processing & primary packaging equipment market owing to higher preference for oral route of drug delivery as the most established and preferred route of drug administration by physicians and patients due to its ease of administration and patient compliance. In addition, features such as acute dosing, non-painful, and safest route of administration further support the growing demand for oral solid dosages and thereby related pharmaceutical processing & packaging machinery. However, parenteral formulation segment will witness the highest growth during the forecast period. The growth in demand for parenteral formulations is primarily driven by the increasing prevalence of cancer and other chronic diseases across the globe & resultant increase in suitable intra-venous drugs, increasing burden of neonatal diseases, growing preference for single dose administration of vaccines and drugs, quick onset of action & 100% bioavailability of parenteral administration, and patient compliance among geriatric patients. Thus, a surge in demand for parenteral formulations in the light of above reasons and at the same time development of new parenteral pharmaceuticals is expected to drive the demand for processing and packaging equipment for pharmaceutical formulations over the coming years.

Geographically, North America is estimated to command the largest share of the global pharmaceutical processing & packaging equipment market in 2019, followed by Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW). The largest share of this region is mainly attributed to the large base of pharmaceutical production in the region to cater the huge demand for medicines, stringent need of GMP compliance, rapid growth of ageing population which triggers the chances of chronic and infectious diseases in the region, and growing pharmaceutical industry. However, Asia Pacific region is expected to show a substantial growth during the forecast period owing to drastic ongoing shift of pharmaceutical manufacturing to Asian region, rising public & private investments to support pharmaceutical manufacturing sector, growing demand for medicines from aging population, rising awareness about healthcare, increasing focus of large number of pharmaceutical manufacturers in the region, and increasing consumption of generic drugs.
