Flexible packaging protects products from ultraviolet (UV) rays, mold, moisture, dust, and other environmental contaminants while extending their shelf life and maintaining quality. It is made using various materials, such as plastics, foil, and papers, and is widely available in the form of bags, pouches, seals, wraps, lids, labels, high-barrier films, etc. Medical flexible packaging requires less base material, which minimizes production time and energy consumption, as compared to the rigid one. It is easy to dispose of, lightweight, and needs less raw material during manufacturing. As a result, medical flexible packaging finds widespread applications in pharmaceutical and implant production, contract packing, etc.

Medical Flexible Packaging Market Trends and Drivers: 

The escalating need for reducing the overall product weight among pharmaceutical manufacturers is primarily driving the medical flexible packaging market. Besides this, the elevating requirement for disposable healthcare devices to minimize the risk of surgical site infections and cross-contamination in patients is further augmenting the market growth.

Moreover, the increasing environmental concerns and medical issues among the masses, owing to the collection of non-biodegradable wastes across countries, are also catalyzing the global market. Apart from this, the rising advancements in extrusion technology are acting as significant growth-inducing factors.

Furthermore, the growing popularity of biaxially-oriented polyethylene terephthalate (BOPET) and polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC) barrier films is anticipated to propel the medical flexible packaging market over the forecasted period.
