The key trend in the pharmaceutical cartridges market is that the manufacturers are shifting their preference from glass to plastics pharmaceutical cartridges. This is due to the structural issues which occur with the usage of glass for a long period of time. The glass starts degrading from the edges and mixes with the drug solution. Further, glass pharmaceutical cartridges requires higher protection while shipping and usage, due to high chances of breakage f material. Thus, to overcome these issues the global manufacturers started using COC and COP material for manufacturing of pharmaceutical cartridges.

Glass a Preferred Material but Providers of Injectable Solutions Focus on Polymers

Among the various material types used for making pharmaceutical cartridges glass has remained by far the most prominent. Their high hydrolytic resistance and chemical resistivity have benefitted manufacturers in the pharmaceutical cartridges market. Several of them have been successful in unveiling glass pharmaceutical cartridges with excellent dimensional tolerance, bagging compliance with international standards by the FDA. Type 1 borosilicate glass among all types has been a preferred material for manufacturers of glass pharmaceutical cartridges.

However, recent consumer trends in the pharmaceutical cartridges market suggest that the degradation of glass over the years of their use might hamper the injectable drugs integrity. Further, their transportation needs substantial caution. Advances in polymer-based composites have enabled them to utilize different copolymers, thereby expanding the scope of the manufacturers in the pharmaceutical cartridges market. These have catalyzed the demand for plastics pharmaceutical cartridges. On the other hand, manufacturers and developers of pharmaceutical injectables are focusing on improving the surface properties of glass and plastic materials, including glass.

Players in the pharmaceutical cartridges market are aiming at product customization to garner competitive edge over others. A case in point is efforts to advance internal siliconization and shape optimization.

Emerging Markets Evolve on Back of Demand for Better Drug Delivery Systems

Growing demand for safe and reliable drug delivery systems for diabetic populations is one of the key factors driving developments in the pharmaceutical cartridges market. Efforts of industry players to incorporate automated packaging processes are also boosting the market prospects. Further, clinicians have been expanding their drug delivery systems with the advances being made in sterilization technologies.

Among the various regions, the North America pharmaceutical cartridges market has made its mark prominent on the global scale. Meanwhile, both the Middle East and Africa are emerging as promising regions. Their evolution gained robust force on the back of advances made in pharmaceutical packaging. Demand for technologically-advanced drug delivery systems for both clinicians and patient population in Asia Pacific health care has reinforced the potential for the adoption of new line of products in the pharmaceutical cartridges. Manufacturers in recent years have set their sights on expanding their footprints in the ASEAN region and India. The vast untapped opportunities has attracted them to serve the unmet need for patient populations.
