Key Highlights

  • The Middle East & Africa region depicts huge potential for the pharmaceutical industry's growth, which poses several opportunities for the ampoules manufacturers in the region. Additionally, the pharmaceutical industry's sustainable growth is also supported by the regional government due to their continued support and investments through long-term plans.
  • For instance, the Dubai Industrial Strategy 2030 and the Abu Dhabi vision 2030, view the pharmaceutical industry as one of sub-sectors with major growth , and aims to make significant developments due to its future growth prospects, export potential, and mid-term to long-term economic impact.
  • Further, the introduction of stringent laws to enhance the quality and integrity of domestically manufactured drugs is primarily leading to an increase in the usage of glass as a material for pharmaceutical packaging products.
  • COVID-19 is expected to increase the market demand due to increasing focus on healthcare and growing research regarding coronavirus vaccine.

Key Market Trends

Glass Ampoules are Expected to Show Significant Adoption

  • Glass ampoules are widely adopted as a type of primary packaging in the pharmaceutical industry packaging for injection drugs due to its various benefits. In the glass ampoules, the drugs come in contact with the glass, and the packaging is 100% tamper-proof. Also, ampoules are a popular choice for primary packaging for injectables and hence are widely adopted in the cost-sensitive market or the emerging markets like Middle East & Africa.
  • The region is also witnessing an increase in the government initiatives and support to foster the adoption of generic products, coupled with the move to start a generic medical store. Also, a high prevalence of infectious diseases in the region is expected to drive the adoption of injectibles in the region, increasing the adoption of glass ampoules in the region during the forecast period.
  • Also, in the case of diseases like HIV/AIDS treatment, the need for sterile drug injection equipment for injecting drugs increases, as the disease can easily be transmitted through the use of the same equipment to inject the drug. Hence, ampoules may be used for drug storage and transport. This is expected to increase the adoption of ampoules in the region, as the risk for HIV/AIDS positive is high in the region.

South Africa Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Region

  • South Africa’s economy is booming due to a relatively stable political scenario in the country and the enormous investments made by companies from around the world. Also, the country has seen significant growth in the pharmaceutical industry.
  • The rapid growth in the pharmaceutical industry in South Africa can be attributed to rapid urbanization, increased healthcare spending, and investments by leading pharmaceutical companies. Emerging economies across the globe have encouraged international players to expand their pharmaceutical companies in South Africa.
  • However, with the rapid growth in the pharmaceutical industry in South Africa, the need for proper packaging solutions also increases. This is because during the various processes in the supply chain of a pharmaceutical product, starting from manufacture to consumption, the pharmaceutical products and drugs need to be handled carefully. This is primarily due to the sensitive nature of drugs, which, when exposed to any exterior environment, lose their therapeutic or medicinal properties. Hence, it is mandatory for pharmaceutical companies to follow stringent regulations regarding consumer safety and environmental regulations.
  • Due to the growing instances of diseases and the growing need to keep the medical solutions safe from the external environment, the pharmaceutical companies are ensuring the quality of pharmaceuticals throughout the manufacturing, storing, and packaging processes. Also, pharmaceutical companies are launching drugs to treat major diseases prevalent in the country, which will further boost the demand for ampoules in South Africa.
  • For instance, in November 2018, South African drug maker Aspen Pharmacare launched a triple-combination tablet for the treatment of HIV in the country where the virus is most prevalent. The company’s new Emdolten drug is an antiretroviral medication that counters the drug resistance that often develops with older HIV treatments.

Competitive Landscape

The competitive landscape of the Ampoules Packaging Market in the Middle East & Africa region is highly consolidated due to the presence of very few regional players, leading to a concentration of the market share amongst these players.
