Anti-Microbial Packaging Market Introduction:

Antimicrobial packaging is a specific kind of packaging method created in order to protect the products from microbial action. The exposure to any kind of microorganisms is prohibited thus preventing damage to the goods. And thus extend the shelf life of decayable products and enhance the safety of packaged products. The usage of antimicrobial packaging has more advantageous compared to directly adding antimicrobial agents onto products because antimicrobial agents used on the surfaces of products through sprays or drips are not quite effective to inhibit microorganisms. This is due to the rapid diffusion of the antimicrobial agent into products and denaturalisation of active substance by-product constituents, which reduces the reactivity of antimicrobial agents. Antimicrobial packaging offers slow and continuous migration of an antimicrobial agent from packaging material to product surfaces, which gives antimicrobial agent to maintain a high concentration over a long period. 

Packaging material is an integral part of pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. The packaging is intended to protect the product from an external environment. Contaminants impact the stability of the drug and can affect the health of patients. Increasing concerns about microbial contamination led to potential growth of the market.  Further, changing regulatory policies to maintain the drug stability led to potential growth of global anti-microbial packaging market. Along with this, increasing importance of product quality for biological preparation created the potential opportunities for the market. It is also further boosted by increasing capital investments by manufacturers and expected to witness double growth digit during the forecast period.
Global anti-microbial packaging market is dominated by North America and U.S. account major share in North America market. Europe is the second major stakeholder of anti-microbial packaging market. Europe market is dominant by UK, France and Germany. Asia Pacific region created to potential opportunistic space for international manufactures and it is dominated by China and India. They are expected to witness the highest growth rate in the global anti-microbial packaging market. Rest of world and Latin America is expected to account significant share in the market due to increasing pharmaceutical manufacturers.
