170+ Pages Research Report Medical Device Packaging Market to surpass USD 80. 91 billion by 2030 from USD 30.32 billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 6.67% in the coming years, i.e., 2021-30.

Product Overview

Medical Device Packaging provides protection as well as ensures sterility of the medical devices during the shelf life. The critical need of maintaining the sterile barrier system (SBS) is a distinguishing feature of medical device packaging. It functions as a barrier to keep microorganisms out of the product and safeguard the medical devices from contamination, physical damage, and any kind of mechanical damage during shipping and storage. Medical device packaging also performs advertising and communication functions. The packaging conveys information regarding the product such as warnings, directions, and benefits. Product identification is a critical part of package communication. This is especially true for medical devices that are used in institutional settings, such as hospitals, where personnel may be pressed for time to select the suitable device for a patient.

Market Highlights

Global Medical Device Packaging Market is expected to project a notable CAGR of 6.67% in 2030.

The growth of the market is attributed to increased demand for innovative packaging solutions, rising prevalence of chronic disorders, advent of technology supporting R&D activities, and growing concern towards the environment coupled with the increased expenditure on healthcare infrastructure.

Global Medical Device Packaging Market: Segments

Polymer segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

Global Medical Device Packaging Market is segmented by Material into Polymer, PVC, Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), PE, Paper & Paperboard and Others. Medical Polymer is expected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Polymer is the most widely used material in the medical packaging industry. Polymers are materials that consist of long, repeating chains of molecules. The materials have distinct properties that depend on the kind of molecules bound and the way they are bonded. These polymers are better suited to medical applications since they are lighter, more biocompatible, and less expensive.

Medical Tools & Equipment segment to grow with the highest CAGR during 2020-30

Global Medical Device Packaging Market is segmented by Application into Medical Tools & Equipment, Medical Devices, In-Vitro Diagnostic Products, and Implants. Medical Tools & Equipment is expected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Medical tools and equipment include apparatus, machines, and implants that do not contain medicines and are used to prevent, diagnose, cure, or alleviate illness in humans, as well as to build structures and improve body functions. Special care has to be taken in transportation, sterility, and a high level of care is required in handling the medical tools and equipment.

Market Dynamics


Rising prevalence of chronic diseases

Rising prevalence of chronic illnesses such as hypertension, diabetes, and cancer is a significant factor projected to expand the market growth during the assessment period. In addition, a growing geriatric population that is more prone to chronic disorders would demand implantable devices, monitoring & diagnostic equipment which in turn is expected to propel the demand for medical device packaging.

Growing investments in the healthcare sector

Increasing investment in healthcare and growing R&D activities, particularly in developing countries is bound to furnish the market growth. The increased R&D activities have resulted in the development of newer and more efficient medical devices and drugs for diagnosis and treatment. Furthermore, manufacturers are concentrating their efforts on preventing the entry of counterfeit products into the market and thus broadened the investments in the medical device packaging industry.


Stringent rules & regulations

Stringent rules and regulations associated with packing materials and packing services is anticipated to hamper the global medical device packaging growth. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recognizes ISTA testing as an authorized standard for medical device packaging. Inappropriate designed and validated packaging will not meet these standards, causing the product launch to be delayed and the company's reputation to suffer.
