The Global Pharmaceutical Vials Market is projected to reach $25,452.73 million by 2028, from a value of $14,846.72 million in 2022, by registering a CAGR of 9.4% during the forecast period. Increasing demand for packaging of COVID-19 vaccines, rapidly growing pharmaceutical industry, high demand from hospitals and drug manufacturers for efficient transportation, and increasing demand for ready-to-use glass vials for flexible aseptic filling are the major factors propelling the growth of the market. However, increasing cost of overall packaging and release of chemicals in the internal surface of glass tubing containers are hampering market growth. Moreover, increase in the number of emerging markets and adoption of new glass types to minimize product contamination are creating ample opportunities across the globe.

Recent Developments

In February 2022, Bormioli Pharma is announcing its collaboration with other companies in this market. Enhancing pharmaceutical application and product of glass packaging are benefits of this collaboration. There is high research in the company that raises bottle resistance and the quality of the packaging. Lowering the carbon footprint in the package is the goal of this company.

In May 2021, Nipro Corporation has partnered with AstraZeneca, to supply the British-Swedish company’s COVID-19 vaccine in Japan. Both the companies are partnering for the production of vaccines. Also, they are manufacturing many odes of vaccines for Japan.
