Global Adherence Packaging Market Trends:
Growing trend of multi-dose pouch packaging is expected to uplift the market growth over the forecast period. Multi-dose pouch packaging can help customers stay synchronized every month. According to the Euclid Medical Products, the med sync can lead to 2 to 3.5 additional prescription refills per participating the customer over the course of year. If one had an additional 100 customers on the med sync, taking 5 to 7 medications per month, this would be up to an additional around 2450 prescriptions that one could fill each year, generating an additional USD 24,500 in additional gross profit.
Advent of smart features in the medication adherence packaging types is another key trend prevailing in the market. This will further favor the market growth.
Global Adherence Packaging Market Restraints:
High installation and maintenance costs of automated systems are projected to limit the market growth of the adherence packaging.
Lack of awareness regarding the medication adherence packaging is again expected to restrict the market growth. According to the WHO, adherence among chronic illness patients in developed countries is only 50%. Medication non-adherence is known to be a major public health problem, as it leads to poor health outcomes and higher healthcare expenses.

Global Adherence Packaging Market Segmentation:
The global adherence packaging market report is segmented into material, type, packaging type, end user industry, and geography
Based on material, the market is segmented into Plastic, Paper and Paperboard, and Aluminum. Out of which, Plastic is expected to dominate the global market over the forecast period. Plastic (PE, PET, PVC, AND PP) maintains a firm protective structure and exhibits moisture-resistant properties, and can lead to weight reduction by up to 90%, compared to glass, allowing a more economical transportation process. Moreover, plastic such as PET properties can be improved by using colorants, oxygen barriers/scavengers, UV blockers, and other additives to develop packaging to match a brand’s specific needs.
Paper and Paperboard segment is also expected to witness significant growth in the near future and this is owing to its superior heat seal and peel properties, as well as a water repellent coating and high microbial barrier properties.
Based on type, the market is segmented into Unit-dose Packaging and Multi-dose Packaging. Out of which, Multi-dose Packaging is expected to dominate the global market over the forecast period. They are cost-effective and help in reducing material waste during production.
Based on packaging type, the market is segmented into Blisters, Pouches, and Other Packaging Types. Out of which, Blisters are expected to dominate the global market over the forecast period as they avoid compact medical devices and medicines from external factors such as odor, oxygen, and moisture, along with enhancing their shelf life. Moreover, recent studies have shown that blister packaging outperforms child- resistant (CR) bottles. They can offer a significantly higher level of safety for the children. Some blister solutions can offer a Child-Resistant safety lever of F=1, the highest child-resistance rating available.
Pouches segment is also expected to witness significant growth in the near future. They are commonly used for small-to-medium-sized soft and semi-soft sterile medical goods sold. Moreover, they are not vulnerable to damage during transportation and storage. The doses of medication are sealed in small plastic pouches, which are linked in a long strip.
Based on end user industry, the market is segmented into Pharmacies, Hospitals, and Other End Users. Out of which, Hospitals is expected to dominate the global market over the forecast period. A recent study by the Journal of the American Pharmacists Association found around 26% of all hospital readmissions were medication-related, and of those readmissions, 48% were related to non-adherence. An average adherence for patients with chronic illnesses is relatively poor: High cholesterol: 57%; High blood pressure: 48%; Diabetes: 43%. An adverse drug reactions are a leading cause of patient mortality. Such a factor is leading to the major demand for adherence packaging in the hospitals.

*Definition: Adherence packaging is an important part of healthcare services. According to recent studies, adherence problems account for more than 50% of care delays and lead to 125,000 deaths and 25 percent of hospitalizations worldwide. As these problems become more common, the need for effective packaging solutions is increasing.
Adherence packaging helps patients take their medications on time. It helps them stay on track and improve health outcomes. In addition to providing easy-to-read instructions for taking medications, medication adherence packaging also promotes the use of bio-PET (good natured, r). Bio-PET is a bioplastic that is safe and recyclable in most homes. In addition to the benefits of bio-PET, many patients prefer this type of packaging due to its environmentally friendly qualities.
Growing need to reduce the medication wastage is the prime factor driving growth of the adherence packaging market. Advent of blister packaging that prevent contamination of compact medical devices and medicines from oxygen, moisture, and odor is projected to bring lucrative growth opportunities.
On the other hand, high installation and maintenance costs of automated systems are projected to limit the market growth of the adherence packaging
