Is pharmaceutical packaging as important as the medicines themselves?

 

We all know that medicine has an essential role in our daily life because of its curing and healing power. In that case we don’t normally pay too much attention to the packaging of medicines. What is the secret behind the packaging materials of medicines? Let's take a closer look together.

 

Mini Instruction Book

Pharmaceutical packaging materials are divided into many categories, according to whether they are in direct contact with drugs, they are divided into a type of packaging material and a type of packaging material. The packaging materials for medicines are a simplified version of the instructions for medicines, and few people will read all the instructions for the medicines. Most of them use the printed part of the medicine box, the labeling part of the medicine bottle, or the printed text on the aluminum foil of the medicine board as a reference for the dosage. It is very important that the printed text is clear and easy to read.

 

Easy to transport

Medicine packaging facilitates the transportation and placement of medicines, and also prevent medicines from being physically damaged during transportation.

 

 

Natural Desiccant

Most medicines require "keep dry", "store in a cool place", etc. For some active medicines, low temperature is required and used (edible) immediately after disassembly. The most important role of the medicine packaging material is to maintain the effective activity of the medicine, and achieve the protective effect by blocking water and oxygen and other substances that are easy to deteriorate the medicine itself. Common packaging methods are aluminum-plastic, aluminum-aluminum, aluminum-plastic-aluminum, bottled and so on. These materials can provide different levels of barrier effects (choose the most suitable and cost-effective packaging materials according to the characteristics of the medicine itself), the isolation of oxygen and water vapor, and the maintenance of the effectiveness of the medicine play a very important role.

 

 

Beautiful and Easy to Distinguish

The pharmaceutical market is the same as the FMCG market. While focusing on the practicality of packaging, it also wants to increase its sales among homogeneous products through the aesthetics of the packaging. Even in the dazzling array of packaging on the medicine rack, it can still be found at a glance for regular customers.

 

 

High Industry Entry Barrier

Like the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry, the pharmaceutical packaging material industry, especially the first-class pharmaceutical packaging materials (directly in contact with drugs),  has a very high industry entry threshold. It needs to obtain the certificates issued by the Local State Food and Drug Administration. Only after gaining the national drug packaging registration record can we cooperate with domestic pharmaceutical companies to supply pharmaceutical packaging materials.

For materials exported to foreign countries, the product itself needs to pass FDA-related testing, and the factory also needs to pass a series of preliminary run-in such as foreign customers’ factory inspection certification and product stability testing.

 

Further Challenge

Due to the development of the pharmaceutical industry and the promotion of environmental protection, new requirements have also been put forward for the pharmaceutical packaging material industry. Industry requirements, product updates, fluctuations in the raw material market, soaring shipping prices in the international market, and repeated epidemics are all posing new challenges to this increasingly mature industry.

As a supplier of pharmaceutical packaging materials that has always been export-oriented and supplemented by domestic sales, today we will talk to you about the differences in the procurement of pharmaceutical packaging materials for domestic and foreign customers!
There are several major producers of pharmaceutical packaging materials in the world, which basically monopolize the global pharmaceutical packaging material market, and each has a strong regional competitive advantage. Then China's pharmaceutical packaging materials go overseas, and even go to foreign high-end markets, what opportunities and challenges are there in the middle, let us take an inventory.
As early as before the COVID-19, after the trade war, production and the foundry of large factories began to move out of China, looking for new suppliers to produce large countries. Under such a premise, Vietnam's manufacturing industry has ushered in a new opportunity for development.
From the perspective of the international market, the world has entered the post-epidemic era since March. There are many rhetoric about China's manufacturing, China's export, and China's supply chain. Today, we will talk about the export trend of the pharmaceutical packaging industry after the epidemic from the perspective of a producer and an exporter.
As blister packaging materials with high barrier properties, PVC/PVDC film and cold form aluminum foil for pharmaceuticals are popular choices for pharmaceutical packaging materials. For the selection of materials, what factors need to be considered in order to protect the drug itself and be economical? Today we will briefly sort it out.
Cold-formed foils have been successfully used in pharmaceuticals, medical devices and in vitro diagnostics - point-of-care test kits for many years. The demand for cold-formed foils continues to grow and evolve as research scientists continue to create innovative solutions. Therefore, it is critical to have a good understanding of the specific requirements these foils need to meet, how to achieve the desired properties, and how requirements and material design affect the overall packaging design.
As a common packaging material on the market, blister packaging is widely used due to its superior barrier effect and independent packaging. But because blister packs are made of a complex combination of polymeric materials, including metal and plastic, recycling has been controversial. Can blister packs really be recycled?
As the popularity of vitamins and other health products continues to rise, health product manufacturers must ensure that their products are properly packaged to minimize consumption risks. But as a product in the middle of food and medicine, what are the specific packaging requirements for health care products?
8 Trends & Analysis of Packaging in Pharmaceutical Industry:The use of blister packs continues to grow,Pay more attention to child-resistant packaging,Plastic bottles are in the highest demand,Is sachet packaging out of date?,Increased use of prefilled syringes,Shelf impact and environmental protection become more important,Packaging design with patients first,Packaging focuses on consumer engagement
The blister packaging of tablets and capsules that end consumers buy from pharmacies or hospitals, is often printed with various text descriptions, drug names, dosages, or just the LOGO of the drug manufacturer on surface of aluminum foil. These printed products all look the same, but in fact it generally contains two common printing methods. Today we will discuss how to choose the most economical and applicable aluminum foil printing method from the perspective of pharmaceutical companies!   First, let's sort out how these two printing methods are distinguished. 1. We can start with structure. Unprinted medicinal aluminum foil is mainly composed of three parts: protective agent, aluminum foil, heat sealant (from outside to inside). The printed layer can appear on the outermost layer of the protective agent (ink, primer, aluminum foil, heat sealant), or between the protective agent and the aluminum foil (primer, ink, aluminum foil, heat sealant). 2. It can be divided from purchasing channels. If the source of purchase is a printing house/factory, then there is a 90% chance that the printed aluminum foil you purchase will be printed on the outermost layer. If it is directly purchased by the source manufacturer, it is usually printed on the middle layer.   Then another question arises, what are the pros and cons of these two printing methods? We also have a deep understanding of it from several angles. 1. The degree of wear resistance of printing. The aluminum foil printed on the outermost layer is less resistant to abrasion. During transportation, if bumped or scratched, the printed pattern on the surface will fall off to varying degrees. Therefore, in terms of printing durability, the aluminum foil printed between the protective agent and the aluminum foil (protective agent, ink, aluminum foil, heat sealant) is better. 2. Printing MOQ. For the packaging of new products, the initial quantity may be small, and the MOQ of pharmaceutical aluminum manufacturers is usually higher than that of printing factories, generally 200-500KG. The printing factory's MOQ is around 50-100KG. Therefore, for the selling price that requires small batch orders, the quantity of outer printing is more suitable for the initial purchase of new products. 3. The cost of printing products. Printing with low MOQ tends to have a higher unit price, and the purchase unit cost of printed matter will also increase. Therefore, for the purchase of printed medicinal aluminum foil, it is necessary to consider the finished product and sales volume, and choose the most suitable printing method.   If you have questions about printing medicinal foils or purchase concerns, you can consult us for professional advice.
