Market Overview:

Adherence packaging is unit-dose packaging systems that organize and package medication or supplement by date and time. It simplifies medication adherence for patients with pre-packaged single or multi-dose packages made for each time of day such as morning, noon, evening and bedtime. Adherence packaging helps patients follow doctor’s instructions by making it easier to take correct dosage at the right time. It is widely used in long-term care facilities, hospitals and home care settings.

Market Dynamics:

The growth of the global adherence packaging market is driven by rising geriatric population and increasing prevalence of chronic diseases. As per WHO, chronic disease prevalence is estimated to grow by 57% globally by the year 2020. Geriatric population suffers more from chronic illnesses which require continuous medication and adherence packaging helps them to manage multiple medications efficiently. Moreover, adherence packaging reduces medication waste by reducing unused or left over tablets. It packs only required dosage for each time which prevents overuse of medicines. However, adherence packaging solutions have higher costs than traditional methods that can restrain its adoption among cost-sensitive consumers.

Based on product type, the adherence packaging market is segmented into blister card packaging, pouch packaging, and stick/bottle packaging.
