The food industry sustains momentum as the largest end-use market for blister and other high visibility packaging industry. World over, the rising demand for convenient, easy-to-prepare, semi-processed food products, is on a continual basis creating opportunities for blister and other high visibility packages. The pharmaceutical industry follows next, with its rising need for FDA compliant, patient friendly and child-resistant packages. End-use industries are increasingly turning towards packaging solutions that would enhance the visual appeal of their products, ensuring immediate sales. In addition, the emphasis is also towards packaging solutions that offer added benefits including communicative graphic design, increased shelf life and packaging flexibility among others. The aging world population is creating a demand for senior-friendly packages, and this is expected to dole out expanded business opportunities in the blister and other high visibility packaging solutions market. All of these factors, among several others, lay down a strong foundation for future market growth. High visibility packaging industry is contesting against increasing demand for healthy food, rising cost of material and convenience-oriented products, which require substrate combinations and innovative technologies to satisfy packaging needs.

Advances in manufacturing techniques and technologies have spurred innovations such as modified-atmosphere packaging and controlled-atmosphere packaging (MAP/CAP). These techniques utilize stronger resins such as metallocenes that offer longer shelf life for food products, and convenience features such as specialized closures and zippered bags. In addition to easy packaging, compliance packaging and patient safety are the key issues for consumers, governments, manufacturers and health care organizations. FDA is promoting the use of printed information and patient guides for certain drugs including antidepressants and NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) to ensure safe medication. Child-resistant designs, unit-of-use packaging, multipanel labels, package inserts and more space for instructions are the major focus issues of the industry. The market for emerging technique, nano-enabled pharmaceutical packaging is poised to grow at an impressive yearly growth rate of about 15% through 2015. User-friendly and customized containers/closures with enhanced shelf life and labels are most sought after packaging trends. In future, interactive packaging is expected to gain public interest.

Blister packaging is of the leading packaging services presently provided by the packaging companies. Increase in consumer incomes, improved lifestyles and westernization coupled with competent marketing practices have widened the market for packaged consumer goods. The trend fueled the demand for blister and other high visibility packaging solutions, especially in developing markets such as Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

Propix introduced high speed 2 data matrix decoding 1st Jan, 2011

From 1st January 2011, AFSSAPS (French Agency for Health Safety and Health Products) will introduce new AIDC (Auto Identification and Data Capturing) for traceability regulation for all medicines sold in the French pharmaceuticals market. This program is for companies who wish to protect their products from counterfeiting and diversion problems. December 31, 2010 — All the new presentations of drugs would be released with the new CIP 13 codes as well as 2D data matrix bar code (with expiry date and lot) on the external packaging. Also by December 31, 2010, all pharmaceutical industry products distributed in France should have following :

  • ECC200 Data Matrix barcode made up of Code CIP13, batch number, expiration date and human readable text. (used for reimbursements) consisting of CIP 13, the reimbursement rate and the price as well as the barcode.
  • New CIP 13 [13 digits] codes as well as 2D data-matrix bar code (with expiry date and lot number – non serialized and non randomized) on the external packaging.
  • ECC200 Data Matrix barcode made up of Code CIP13, batch number, expiration date and human readable text. (used for reimbursements) consisting of CIP 13, the reimbursement rate and the price as well as the barcode.
  • Provide insight into demand patterns,
  • Easier detection of expired products,
  • More efficient recalls,
  • Reduce opportunities for fraudulent activity,
  • Enhanced patient safety.
