The custom nature of the medical device industry results in many permutations of medical devices, which carries through to packaging requirements. Packaging designs, structure and graphics must accommodate the many device variations, says Allied Development.
Also, the report maintains that packaging materials, structures, and processes must come together to generate packaging in formats that packaging suppliers can sell and distribute. The most popular packaging formats for the medical device industry are pouches/bags, header bags, lidding material, forming web, and rigid trays.
Quantitative data are provided on the current and projected consumption for each of these packaging formats in the report. For more information, e-mail Steve Mogensen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
