May 2023 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Biopharma Plastics Market Growth & Trends 

The global biopharma plastics market size is expected to reach USD 11,290.12 million by 2030, expanding at 11.3% CAGR from 2023 to 2030, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. The rise in global healthcare expenditure for research & development of biopharma plastics is anticipated to drive the market. In addition, the rising demand for biopharmaceuticals, owing to the increasing cases of cancerous patients across the globe, is anticipated to propel the demand for biopharma plastics. 

Plastics are widely used in this industry due to their versatility, durability, and cost-effectiveness. The use of plastics in biopharma applications includes packaging and delivery systems, laboratory equipment, diagnostic devices, and drug delivery devices. 

The global biopharma plastics industry is expected to experience significant growth in the coming years. This growth is driven by factors such as the increasing demand for biopharmaceuticals, the growing prevalence of chronic diseases, and the rise in healthcare expenditure. Additionally, the need for more advanced and innovative packaging and delivery systems for biopharmaceuticals is also expected to drive market growth. 

Moreover, the biopharma industry is increasingly focused on sustainability and reducing its environmental footprint. This has led to a growing demand for biodegradable and recyclable plastics that can be used in biopharma applications. Companies are investing in research and development to create more sustainable plastics that meet the needs of the biopharma industry. 

The biopharma industry is characterized by a high level of research and development activity, as companies invest in developing new drugs and delivery systems. This is driving demand for specialized biopharma plastics that can support this research and development, such as laboratory equipment and diagnostic devices.
