The Indian Pharmaceutical Industry is in the middle of big changes and not only the Industry is expected to accommodate Demographic, Epidemiological, and economic shifts in the world, but also has to upgrade manufacturing practices and match rigid standards from time to time in order to produce world-class medicines. The pharmaceutical packaging industry with a market size of USD 83.6 billion in 2019 is projected to reach 111.9 billion in 2024 with a CAGR of 6.0% between 2019 -2024. The growing use of oral drug delivery mode owing to patient compliance and convenience, increasing cases of communicable diseases, and the rise in the aging population in developed economies are responsible for the high share of the bottles segment. This growth is attributed to the increased demand for pharmaceutical packaging in pharma emerging economies such as BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) countries. Furthermore, trends towards safety, efficacy, and patient-friendly products are on the rise. Rising demand for advanced technology to address the increasing demand for routine injectable drugs to treat chronic conditions will boost the growth of the injectable drug delivery market over the coming years. The pharma packaging industry in India is evolving rapidly to adopt to changing policies and regulations in their markets as many Indian companies are now moving into the US and Europe.
