There is high demand for pharmaceuticals drug packaging products that are safer and protects pharmaceutical drugs from contamination. Earlier, prefilled syringes were the popular and preferred solution of the drug practitioners but the users often met with accidents due to the breaking of the needle sticks. Thus, there is requirement for packaging products that are safer and user friendly. Since, cartridges do not contain any needle, they eliminate every possibility of any injury. Furthermore, cartridges are highly suitable for the temperature sensitive drugs due to their preservative properties. Thus, they are a safe pharmaceutical packaging solution for the users.

The glass is the most prominently used material for the manufacturing of the pharmaceutical cartridges. The segment holds the major share among the material type segment. This is due to the chemical resistivity of the glass, as glass is highly resistive to pharmaceutical drugs for longer period of time. Type 1 borosilicate glass holds higher market share from its counterparts.

The key trend in the pharmaceutical cartridges market is that the manufacturers are shifting their preference from glass to plastics pharmaceutical cartridges. This is due to the structural issues which occur with the usage of glass for a long period of time. The glass starts degrading from the edges and mixes with the drug solution. Further, glass pharmaceutical cartridges requires higher protection while shipping and usage, due to high chances of breakage f material. Thus, to overcome these issues the global manufacturers started using COC and COP material for manufacturing of pharmaceutical cartridges.
