Material types in the blister packaging market include aluminum, paper & paperboard, and plastic films, among which aluminum dominates the material segment. This is due to aluminum foil being widely utilized in the pharmaceutical industry to pack pharmaceutical drugs. The properties of aluminum foil such as resistance to corrosion, ability to withstand changes in temperature and humidity, and anti-permeability against oxygen, fats, and ultraviolet light support its adoption in the blister packaging industry.

The aluminum foil, commonly known as Alu-PVC blister packaging, protects the pharmaceutical materials from the external environment and elements, leaving the material uncontaminated. In addition, plastic films such as PVC, polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and polyethylene (PE) provide sturdy packaging that is transparent and protects the material against external environmental factors, which is further driving the market growth for this segment.

Blister packaging is experiencing moderate growth in the U.S., driven by the high level of safety provided by these packaging solutions. The demand for blister packaging has been increasing over the years in the country due to the growing preference of blister packaging manufacturers and consumers for these packaging solutions. The market has also been fueled by the rising demand for over-the-counter drugs such as aspirin, antacids, and vitamin supplements.
