·13-min read

INTRODUCTION Primary packaging, such as vials, syringes, and cartridges, and their affiliated closures, play a vital role in ensuring the stability, and sterility, and thereby, the overall quality, efficacy and safety of a drug product.

New York, July 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Pre-Sterilized / Ready-to-Use Primary Packaging: Focus on Cartridges, Syringes and Vials - Market Distribution by Type of Packaging System, Packaging Material and Key Geography – Global Forecast 2021-2030" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06103097/?utm_source=GNW
Moreover, the packaging bears the product label, which provides information related to the drug and, in certain cases, dosing instructions. Pharmaceutical packaging is typically carried out under controlled conditions; specifically, for therapeutics that are designed for parenteral administration, fill / finish is carried out in sterile and aseptic environments. It is also crucial for innovators (or packaging service providers) to choose the appropriate, high quality primary packaging for their respective products; this is because the packaging material is in direct contact with the drug / therapy. Building and maintaining the necessary expertise and infrastructure to support pharmacological fill / finish is a capital-intensive ordeal. Further, the growing complexity of modern pharmacological interventions, such as monoclonal antibodies, cell and gene therapies (which are typically produced in small batches) and the gradual (but imminent) shift to personalized therapies, has prompted drug developers to look for leaner manufacturing and packaging solutions. In this context, cost optimization is important and one of the available ways to save both time and capital is by bypassing manual processing and sterilization of primary packaging and switching to ready-to-use (RTU) formats.

Pre-sterilized RTU container-closure systems have gradually become very popular and are widely used in the modern pharmaceutical industry. As indicated earlier, such components significantly simplify the overall fill / finish process, primarily by eliminating the need for several additional steps (such as washing, drying and sterilization), which were previously required to prepare primary containers for filling. In other words, using RTU components helps improve operational efficiencies. Drug product manufacturers and fill / finish service providers claim that these off-the-shelf packing and closure systems, help them to better serve their clients in a timely and regulation-compliant manner. In this context, it is worth highlighting that RTU packaging systems were in high demand during the COVID-19 pandemic, when novel vaccines and experimental therapies needed to be produced and packaged for distribution in large quantities. The surge in demand for appropriate packaging solutions in adequate quantities, is likely to persist, significantly adding to the opportunity for RTU package and affiliated closure developers / suppliers. In future, as drug developers continue to strive to achieve greater flexibilities in their operations, we believe that the RTU packaging components market is likely to witness steady growth over the next decade.
