Over the years, advances in drug / therapy development processes have led the pharmaceutical industry to gradually shift from a one-drug treats all model to a more personalized approach of treatment. The growing complexity of modern pharmacological interventions, such as monoclonal antibodies, and cell and gene therapies, has further prompted the drug developers to develop or identify specialized fill / finish and packaging alternatives that are capable of catering to the specific needs of such novel products. 

Pharmaceutical packaging, owing to the fact that it is in immediate contact with the drug / therapy formulation, plays a vital role in preserving the identity, quality and integrity of the packaged medicinal product. Although there are various types of primary packaging containers, including ampoules, cartridges and syringes, available in the market for various types of drug formulations, pharmaceutical vials have been observed to be the preferred choice of drug developers, owing to the fact that they provide high container-closure integrity.

Despite being the most preferred packaging system, traditional vials are often associated with certain challenges, including chances of breakage under extreme conditions, absence of relevant information (serial or batch number) on the package and potential to delaminate. As a result, several pharmaceutical vial manufacturers are exploring novel techniques to overcome the aforementioned challenges associated with conventional pharmaceutical vials in order to create better packaging solutions. Examples of some advancements in this domain include the use of serialization techniques (to avoid drug counterfeiting), development of numerous coating materials (to prevent delamination and pH imbalance) and the adoption of smart drug delivery technologies (to improve patient compliance).

Further, pre-sterilized / ready-to-use (RTU) pharmaceutical vials have emerged as a promising alternative to conventional pharmaceutical vials, adding significant value to streamline pharmaceutical fill / finish operations. It is worth noting that these innovations have significantly helped in optimizing costs, easing the filling process and expediting production timelines. Moreover, it enables the pharmaceutical players to overcome regulatory challenges, as well as build a sustainable competitive edge in the market. In addition, due to the unprecedent outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for parenteral formulations has increased significantly, therefore providing lucrative opportunities for pharmaceutical companies engaged in the development of safe and superior quality vials. In the future, the high demand for parenteral formulations and increase in vaccination campaigns are likely to drive the growth of the pharmaceutical vials market.
