One of the main reasons for choosing elastomeric materials for manufacturing closures is their anti-leaching property and limited interaction potential of the material with the formulation present in vial / syringe. Further, using ready-to-use products saves a lot of time and effort in the overall production processes

Caps and Closures Market Overview

The pharmaceutical caps and closures market is estimated to be worth $4.6 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at CAGR of over 6.7% during the forecast period. Pharmaceutical packaging plays a crucial role in ensuring the sterility and quality of a drug product, while also providing information related to its identity and, in certain cases, dosing instructions. Primary packaging material, owing to the fact that it is in immediate contact with the drug / therapy formulation, is considered to be extremely important when it comes to preserving the stability, efficacy and safety of the packaged drug product. Further, given the growing complexity of modern pharmacological interventions, especially biologics, it has become imperative for drug / therapy packaging considerations to be re-evaluated, taking into consideration the evident shift from large batches of one remedy for everyone to smaller batches of more personalized therapeutic solutions. In addition to optimizing drug-packaging compatibility, stakeholders in the pharmaceutical packaging industry have also adopted a number of other flexible solutions to reduce the overall cost and expedite time to market.

The use of elastomeric materials, along with various types of coatings (such as FluoroTec® and Teflon®), has emerged as a promising alternative to conventional, non-coated closures used for primary packaging containers, which were prone to leaching and shedding of particulate contaminants. The advantages of using elastomeric materials in manufacturing container closures are many, including low leaching potential, minimal chemical interaction with the pharmacological formulation, and the fact that they can be used to make waterproof and airtight closures. Moreover, such closures can also be manufactured in the ready-to-use (RTU) format, which saves a significant amount of time by eliminating the need for multiple steps in the overall fill / finish process. Owing to the aforementioned benefits, the industry has witnessed an evident market growth in preference for elastomeric container closures.
