Packaging forms an integrated and vital component in the medical device market. Medical devices are packaged in order to maintain sterility and to provide effective protection to the product. The North American medical device packaging market is experiencing steady growth with the rise in demand for medical devices in the healthcare sector coupled with greater focus on R&D to provide innovative, customized, and cost-effective packaging solutions to their customers.
Cost reduction is one of the major challenges faced by the healthcare market. Market participants such as device manufacturers are finding it difficult to maintain profitability amidst the increased raw material, transportation, and production costs. This forces device manufacturers to demand packaging manufacturers to supply products at lower costs. To meet this requirement, packaging manufacturers need to develop new packaging materials and packages that deliver optimum performance at a reduced cost.
"Other challenges faced by North American medical device packaging companies include coping with emerging trends in the medical device market," says Urmila Kishore. "For example, the introduction of combinational drug delivery devices, is posing major challenge to packagers to come up with new innovative packaging that suit the products.”
The success of a company primarily depends on the technological investments, as well as the provision of good service and technical support to the customers. Therefore, it is necessary for packaging companies to have consistent product innovation featured with excellent customer service facilities.
