Silafrica Discusses the Cost Savings of Thin Wall Packaging in Big Pharma

The market forces in the pharmaceutical industry are shifting towards more sustainable packaging options as consumers are becoming more conscious of their impact on the environment and are demanding more eco-friendly products. Pharmaceutical companies that invest in recyclable packaging will not only be able to meet consumer demands, but also stay ahead of their competitors.

This is evident from companies already utilizing recyclable packaging, for instance, Novartis AG and GlaxoSmithKline who have seen not only cost savings, but also improved brand image and customer satisfaction and continue being the global leaders in the industry.

Recyclable thin wall plastic packaging for pharmaceutical products is a win-win solution for both the industry and consumers as not only does it provide cost savings for the companies that manufacture and purchase the packaging, but it also offers environmental and safety benefits.

So how do the cost reduction happen? Traditional packaging methods, such as glass bottles, are not only more expensive to produce but also add additional costs for transportation and disposal. Thin wall plastic packaging, on the other hand, is lightweight and can be easily recycled, leading to cost savings throughout the supply chain.

In addition to cost savings, recyclable packaging also offers environmental benefits. Plastic packaging accounts for a significant portion of plastic waste, and non-recyclable packaging only adds to this problem. By using recyclable packaging, pharmaceutical companies can reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future.

Safety and protection are also key factors in the pharmaceutical packaging industry. Thin wall plastic packaging is able to provide the necessary barrier protection to keep products fresh and safe for consumption, while also being lightweight and easy to transport. This not only benefits the consumer, but also the supply chain logistics of the pharmaceutical companies.
