The global blister packaging market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2020 to 2025 due to the growing demand for unit-dose packaging, short-cycle medication, and a monitored dosage system to improve patient adherence.
There is a shift from plastic containers to blisters in North America to enhance patient compliance for the growing old-age population. Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) is expected to register the highest CAGR of more than 8% and reach USD 10.31 billion by 2024 owing to the increasing concerns over physical protection, barrier protection, containment or agglomeration, security, convenience, and portion control.
The blister packaging market features a highly fragmented competitive landscape as several small players are entering the market. Moreover, low manufacturing and operating costs have lowered the entry barriers for new players and increased the threat of new entrants.
The competitive rivalry is intensifying as global players are focusing on new product development, M&A deals, and strategic partnerships to strengthen their regional presence and cater to the demand from emerging economies.
The prices of raw materials such as PVC have increased to more than 25% over the last three years owing to supply shortages and the shutdown of plants in the U.S. due to the cold weather.

Blister packaging is used to protect retail and pharmaceutical products, which incurs additional costs for distribution, freight, and shipping.
