Recommended Conferences for Packaging Materials

Packaging Materials

As per available reports about 10 relevant journals, 26 Conferences, 20 workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to Packaging Materials and about2065articles are being published on Packaging Materials

Packaging material employed in the packaging of medicinal products, excluding any outer packaging used for transportation or shipment. Packaging materials are referred to as primary or secondary according to whether or not they are intended to be in direct contact with the product.  It is enlisted in Good manufacturing practices, Market surveillance of industrial pharmacy, Current GMP Guidelines, Quality Control, Current Regulations and Quality Standards, Healthcare pharmacy.

OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.

Scope and Importance:

The scope of this is extended by remarking key regulatory areas like Pharmaceutical Regulatory Affairs, Separation Techniques, Toxicology, Toxicogenomics and Drug Monitoring, Drug Formulation , Clinical Pharmacy, GMP and GLP quality control, followed by Bioavailability and Bioequivalence studies, Biosimilars and Pharmacognosy. Providing a chance, OMICS Group conferences host scientists, researchers, pharmaceutical organizations and all representatives of pharmaceutical company sectors can showcase their cogent findings and at the same time get exposed to a useful collection of research and latest developments.

Any material employed in the packaging of medicinal products, excluding any outer packaging used for transportation or shipment. Packaging materials are referred to as primary or secondary according to whether or not they are intended to be in direct contact with the product.

Packaging component

Any single part of a container closure system. Typical components are

  • Containers , Container liners
  • Closures, Closure liners
  • Stopper overseals

Primary packaging component: Packaging component that is or may be in direct contact with the dosage form.

Secondary packaging component: Packaging component that is not and will not be in direct contact with the dosage form.

Container closure system:

The sum of packaging components that together contain and protect the dosage form. This includes primary packaging components & secondary packaging components, if the latter are intended to provide additional protection to the drug product. Packaging system is equivalent to a container closure system


A container for Pharmaceutical use is an article which holds or is intended to contain and protect a drug and is or may be in direct contact with it.

The closure is a part of the container.

The container and its closure must not interact physically or chemically with the substance within in any way that would alter its quality.

General requirements for the permeability of containers

  • Well-closed containers
  • Tightly closed containers
  • Hermetically closed containers
  • Light-resistant container


  • Single-dose container
  • Multidose container
  • Airtight container
  • Tamper-proof container

Packaging concerns Depend on

A. Dosage form

B. Route of administration

Packaging Materials

  • Glass
  • Plastics
  • Metal

The choice of primary and/or secondary packaging materials will depend on

  • Degree of protection required
  • Compatibility with the contents
  • Filling method
  • Cost
  • Presentation for OTC drug
  • Convenience of packaging for user

Blister Package

Two basic packaging components

A. Forming film

„ Thermoformed

„ Cold formed

B. Lidding Material

ƒ Push-through

ƒ Peelable

Strip Packaging

Produced at lower speeds and occupy greater volume than blister

Pocket area is critical to diameter, shape and thickness of the product

If the pocket is too “tight”, tearing, perforation of the pocket periphery or wrinkling of the seal area may occur.

Stability testing

It should be conducted on the dosage form packaged in the container closure system proposed for marketing (including, as appropriate, any secondary packaging and container label)

Stability Studies

Ultimate proof of suitability of the container closure system and the packaging processes established by full shelf life stability studies.

Market Analysis:

The packaging market is projected to reach a value of $305,955.1 million by 2019. Asia-Pacific is projected to be the largest market and is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecasted period. In this region, the Indian market is estimated to be the second-fastest.This report studies the marketing and development strategies, along with the product portfolios of leading companies. It also includes the profiles of leading companies such as Amcor Ltd. (Australia), Rock-Tenn Company (U.S.), Crown Holdings, Inc. (U.S.). The key players in the market invest in the expansion of their facilities to fulfill the needs of emerging markets and are actively investing in R&D activities to gain a competitive edge through new product launches.
