0:45 min Facts & Figures

Grand View Research have released a new report about the blister packaging market. The global blister packaging industry is expected to advance at 7.4% CAGR from 2020 to 2025.

According to the report, recent economic and environmental policy changes compel brands to find a PVC alternative for their blister packaging. PVC makes packaging recycling more difficult or contaminates other materials. PET and rPET are two major alternatives for high sustainability goals as they can be easily recycled.

One of the leaders in the packaging industry, Amcor has already started working on developing alternatives for PVC in blister packaging. In April 2021, the company announced the customer trials of the world's first recyclable polyethylene-based thermoform blister packaging named AmSky. It reduces carbon footprint by 70% compared to PVC and other alternatives. PVC makes packaging recycling more difficult or contaminates other materials if consumers attempt to recycle them. Therefore, Amcor's solution eliminates PVC from the packaging by using a mono-material Polyethylene thermoform blister and lidding film.
