By type, the global blister packaging market is segmented as compartment, slide, and wallet. Compartment type held a major share in the market, i.e., more than fifty percent in 2020 owing to its widespread use in industries such as healthcare, food, and retail industry. Compartment-type blister packs hold a major share in the market since these are widely used to package food and other personal care goods. High-end food display is one of the major factors that has resulted in its increased adoption in the FMCG sector. PP, PET, and PVC are generally used as a material to form the compartment blister packs for the food and personal care industry. Thus, the growing demand for packed foods and consumer products due to rising disposable income is expected to boost the compartment-type blister packaging market growth. In developing regions, the demand for slide and compartment type blister packs is poised to grow at a substantial rate due to the growing retail sector in the countries like China, Japan, India, etc. on account of improving economic conditions and rising disposable income of the growing population. The wallet-type blister packaging is estimated to grow at the fastest rate over the forecast period due to its growing adoption of blister wallets in clinical trials, drug promotion, and pharmaceutical packaging.

By material, the global blister packaging market is segmented as PVC, PVDC, PP, and others. PVC holds a major share in the market as it is the most commonly used material in pharmaceutical and consumer goods packaging. (Polyvinylchloride) PVC is one of the prominent materials that is utilized in blister packaging and it holds a dominant share owing to its widespread use in the pharmaceutical packaging industry. The material is used as a forming film because it exhibits excellent thermoformability, a high flexural strength, good chemical resistance, low permeability to oils, fats, and easy testability. Good barrier protection at a cost-effective rate is one of the major factors due to which it is widely used in blister packaging in emerging economies. Optimal barrier protection provided by the material coupled with low cost makes the material favorable for consumer goods packaging. Burgeoning demand for high-barrier films from products that require complete protection from moisture, light, and other gaseous substances is driving the demand for materials such as PVDC, and PP for the manufacturing of blister packs. The demand for other materials such as Aluminum and paper is set to grow at a good rate in the upcoming years owing to the rising propensity towards sustainable packaging and adoption of Alu-Alu blister foils in the pharmaceutical packaging industry.

By technology, the global blister packaging market is segmented as thermoformed and cold-formed blister packaging. Thermoformed blister packaging holds a major share in the market on account of its widespread use in packaging food, consumer goods, and medicines. Thermoformed blister packs are commonly used for packaging food, consumer goods, and pharmaceutical products. It holds a major share in the market on account of its ease of production and cost-efficiency. The widespread adoption of this technology in the food and personal care industry in both developed and developing regions has resulted in the increased demand for thermoformed blister products. The good growth of the FMCG industry in developing countries due to rapid urbanization and growing population has resulted in an increased demand for packaging solutions that are inexpensive, versatile, and exceptionally reliable, thus driving the thermoformed blister packaging market growth.

By geography, the global blister packaging market has been segmented as North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific. The Asia Pacific Global blister packaging market is dominating the global market, constituting more than 40% share in 2020 on account of rapid urbanization and increasing manufacturing industry in countries like China. In the North American region, United States is holding a major share and the rising health concerns are anticipated to increase the domestic health spending on drugs by the individuals. Furthermore, the U.S Department of Health and Human Services has recently proposed a regulation aimed at lowering drug prices and reducing the out of the pocket expenditure in the United States by encouraging manufacturers to pass the discounts directly to the patients. Furthermore, in 2018, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) passed a regulation requiring all the prescribed pharmaceuticals dispensed in the hospitals and nursing homes to be packaged in the unit dose format with barcodes to reduce dispensing errors, which is expected to significantly benefit the blister packaging market in the country.
