Impact of COVID-19 on Plastic Healthcare Packaging Market

The COVID 19 pandemic has spread across the globe and its impact on the healthcare sector has been significant, positively affecting industries that provide essential items. Demand for plastic packaging in healthcare will rise across different countries owing to consumer demand for dietary supplements, and essential medications, required to combat the spread of the virus.

The COVID-19 outbreak has also affected the prices of the raw materials such as the price of oil based raw materials. At the same time the lockdown hasn’t been favourable for overseas supply of raw materials or end products especially for manufacturers who majorly rely on the international supply chains.

Factors such as demand, supply, cost of production, and government actions to diminish the impact of pandemic have led to moderate growth of the plastic healthcare packaging market.

Significant deployment of AI technology in the drug development process is one of the prominent trends characterizing plastic healthcare packaging market outlook through 2021-2031. In April 2021, for instance, Evotec announced the Phase I clinical trials of its new anticancer molecule, developed in partnership with Exscientia, a company that applies AI techniques to small-molecule drug discovery.

This increased reliance on innovative technology could proliferate the drug discovery process and consequently amplify the need for plastics in pharmaceutical packaging. The rising awareness about the benefits of flexible medical packaging, including its capability to hold up well under sterilization agents like gamma radiation and ethylene oxide, will also contribute to the rising product popularity. However, concerns regarding plastics pollution and the implementation of various stringent norms against the use of single-use plastics may create a hindrance to industry dynamics in the years ahead.
