Packaging companies are integrating next-generation features such as 3D packaging and enabling specific medical device sensors to achieve the small size and thin thickness required to adapt to the environment and highly complex surfaces of a human body. In addition, packaged medical devices also focus on 3D packaging integration technology which provides superior accuracy and efficiency. With increasing technological and regulatory challenges, medical device manufacturers (MDMs) have realized the importance of determining the best packaging and sterilization solutions in the design process. Consequently, the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow, medical device packaging has evolved into a two-way connected platform that builds real-time digital bridges to share information, nurture relationships and provide information like never before.

Switching from glass to plastic packaging material
In recent years, plastics continue to be widely used in packaging for medical and dental applications. High performance plastics are expected to grow at a much faster rate than commodity plastics. In response to this trend, most specialty polymer manufacturers have expanded their product portfolio towards high performance medical grade polymers. Plastic medical products are transforming the healthcare industry. The increased use of polymers in medical devices has renovated the market, with plastic medical devices gradually replacing other materials such as metals, glass and ceramics.


  • Rapid technological advances in medical devices and new medical devices require specialized packaging solutions. Favorable patient demographics and increasing consumption of a wide range of medical devices are fueling the need for safe and effective medical device packaging.

  • Growing environmental concerns coupled with an increased focus on reducing hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), as well as the need for sterile medical devices have led to the use of innovative and environmentally friendly packaging solutions.

  • India is expected to experience the highest absolute growth of around 60% owing to a sudden surge in demand for a wide range of medical devices across various healthcare institutions in the country. The COVID-19 pandemic has created significant growth opportunities for medical device manufacturers in the country and led to an increase in demand for packaging solutions for medical applications.
