Opportunities and challenges coexist, and medical smart packaging becomes the general trend of the future

In recent years, with the rapid development of the domestic pharmaceutical industry, pharmaceutical companies have paid more and more attention to packaging, and the continuous progress of packaging and printing technology, my country’s pharmaceutical packaging output value has shown a trend of steady growth year by year. According to the “2019-2025 China Pharmaceutical Packaging Market Status Survey and Development Prospect Report” released by China Industry Research Network, the pharmaceutical packaging industry has accounted for 10% of the total domestic packaging output value, and the industry has a bright future.

The market is changing rapidly, and opportunities and challenges coexist. On the one hand, with the gradual improvement of people’s consumption level and the continuous improvement of aesthetics, medical packaging presents the characteristics of diversified personalities and improved environmental performance. At the same time, with the implementation of the new version of the Drug Administration Law, the industry generally believes that the gradual liberalization of online sales of prescription drugs is the general trend, which also means that the demand for prescription drug storage, transportation and packaging is increasing with the increase in Internet penetration. In general, the market size of the pharmaceutical packaging industry is expected to further expand in the future, and the supply and demand structure is also expected to continue to upgrade. Under the increasingly fierce market competition, domestic pharmaceutical packaging companies need to seek new paths for transformation and breakthrough.

On the other hand, with the continuous development of intelligent technology, intelligent upgrading and centralized integration will become the main development trend of the packaging industry in the next few years. In this context, in the course of the development of the modern medical industry, the upgrading of medical devices has always been a research topic that has received attention. On the basis of how to make medical packaging safer and more convenient, the addition of the concept of environmental protection has made the improvement of medical packaging more meaningful. At the same time, the intelligentization of medical packaging has also been put on the agenda.

Smart medical packaging has become an industry development trend. What can be seen is that as far as the medical product packaging itself is concerned, its high safety and high precision characteristics make it a strict degree that other product packaging can’t match. Under the leadership of the development of technology and design trends, humanity Modernization, convenience, and light weight have become important manifestations of the intelligent trend of medical packaging.

In addition to the design of packaging structure and materials, electronic information-based medical packaging has gradually formed a rapid development trend, and the application of information-based smart packaging including QR codes, barcodes, and electronic labels has gradually penetrated into the medical packaging industry. This is also based on the corresponding information acquisition methods provided by the more commonly used smart electronic devices.

At present, my country is still in its infancy for the research and production of smart medical packaging. It is necessary to work hard on many factors such as innovation, manufacturing equipment research and development, material research and development results, packaging cost control, and market development to promote the development of my country’s medical smart packaging.
