Report Scope:

This study covers many of the most important economic, technological, regulatory and environmental considerations in markets for the use of plastics to package healthcare products. This report is a global study of activities within the healthcare packaging market.

All market volume figures are rounded to the nearest million pounds. Growth rates are compound average annual growth rates (CAGR). Growth rates are rounded to the tenth of a percent.

Some relatively minor resin materials and applications are grouped together in a miscellaneous category but are specifically noted.

A wide variety of terms in this market are used almost interchangeably, which often makes it difficult to specifically segment several products used in healthcare packaging because, in many cases, they are multifunctional, such as-
  • Trays vs. kits.
  • Pouches vs. bags.
  • Closures vs. caps.
  • Containers vs. bottles.
  • Closures vs. lidding.
Note that because some readers purchase only certain sections of this report and not the complete report, there are often times when there is a need to review some preliminary but important background details several times.
