Child Resistant Closures Market By Closure Type (Push & Turn, Squeeze & Turn, Dropper Caps), By Tamper Evidence Type (Tamper Evident and Non-Tamper Evident), By Material Type (Polypropylene, Polystyrene, Polyethylene, Others), By End-Use Vertical (Pharmaceuticals, Household & Personal Care, Chemicals & Fertilizers, Food & Beverage) – Growth, Future Prospects and Competitive Analysis, 2019 - 2027

Rising Government Regulations to Boost the Child-Resistant Closure Market

In 2018, the global child-resistant closures market was valued at US$ 1.60 Bn and was expected to grow with a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period from 2019 to 2027. The child-resistant closure market is growing due to the worldwide increase in accidental drug intoxication cases among children below five years of age. To decrease these accidental cases, the government is taking the initiative to apply child-resistant packaging rules. For instance, in the U.S., the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA) listed some special products that should be packed with child-resistant closures. Further, these include chemicals & cosmetics products, mouthwash products, and drugs & dietary supplements. As a result of the aforementioned factors, we expect that the child-resistant closures will show healthy growth throughout the forecast period. 

Market Synopsis

The pharmaceuticals segment is to remain the largest segment During the Forecast Period.

Based on end-user type, the child-resistant closure market is segmented into pharmaceuticals, household & personal care, chemicals & fertilizers, and food & beverage. The pharmaceutical segment has the largest share of the market, accounting for more than 50% of the total market revenue. Pharmaceuticals have the largest share owing to compulsory child-resistant packaging for prescribed and over-the-counter (OTC) drugs. Strict regulations by healthcare and drug regulatory organizations are the major factor for the pharmaceutical industry's dominance in child resistant closures market. Therefore, we expect the pharmaceutical industry to continue leading the child-resistant closure market throughout the forecast period. 

North America to Remain Highest Revenue Contributor throughout the Forecast Period

North America was the leader in child-resistant closures, accounting for more than 1/3rd of the market share in 2018. High regional market share is attributed to strict rules and regulations for child-resistant packaging. Furthermore, the growth of the pharmaceutical industry and the government's regulations to protect children from unintentional accidental poisoning are the major growth drivers for the region's child-resistant closures market. In addition, another growth driver for the market is another wide application of child-resistant closures in North America for different industries such as cosmetics, household, food & beverage, and pharmaceutical. Due to these factors, we expect that the North America region will be the leader during the forecast period.
