The medical device industry is witnessing advancements at a high rate. A medical device also goes through a lot of stages like sterilization, handling, shipping and usage. Therefore these devices require extra care while packaging and transporting. Its packaging should enable protection of medical devices against shock, puncturing, vibration, tearing, bursting, splitting, atmospheric changes in humidity and heat. The market is also witnessing a need for easy to use and easy to dispose packaging solutions. The advent of thermoformable materials enabled usage of new packaging solutions such as, thermoformed trays and blister packaging. Thereafter, a growing demand for good lidding materials compelled the manufacturers of medical device packaging solutions to come up with new packaging solutions with improved film laminations, which was made possible by the introduction of thermoplastic polymers. As the quality of healthcare continues to improve across the world, it is anticipated that the global medical device packaging market will benefit from the growth in demand for newer medical device packaging solutions aimed at enhancing consumer confidence.
Manufacturers have realised the need for sustainable packaging that proves to be cost efficient
Out of all the opportunities that are available to the businesses in the global medical device packaging market, a smart approach or sustainable packaging system can be the most beneficial opportunity for these companies. They need to focus on a sustainable packaging solution which involves a modern and smart packaging technology and is also cost efficient.

The advent of smart and intelligent packaging systems has enabled medical device packaging manufacturers to optimize their efficiency, thereby facilitating growth of the medical device packaging market.
Packaging manufacturers are also constantly enhancing their product development activities to concoct arrangements that permit medical device manufacturers (MDMs) to save cost while additionally convey value to purchasers and end clients of medical devices. Arrangements, for example, installing rehashed watermarks composite flexible structures or multi-layer rigid packaging formats enable producers to anticipate against duplicating of medical devices. Anti-counterfeit technology embedded in packaging maintains integrity of packaging as well as medical device products throughout complex supply chains. Thus, manufacturers of medical devices are increasingly demanding packaging solutions that have cost effective anti-counterfeit solutions.
