The hottest technological innovation, new variable

Technological innovation new variables appear in the pharmaceutical packaging industry

with the reform of China's medical system, the disordered and backward situation of pharmaceutical packaging will fundamentally change. At present, China is only warming up the experimental board, and constantly introducing and updating pharmaceutical packaging machinery and materials. The pharmaceutical packaging industry will present a new situation. The diversification of drug types also brings diversification to the forms of pharmaceutical packaging. In recent years, the packaging of solid drugs in China, such as plain tablets, capsules, injections and externally applied drugs, has been updated rapidly. At the same time, the use of disposable plastic syringes has brought a major change to the packaging and application of injections in China. The improvement of large infusion packaging is also moving towards the direction of composite flexible packaging bags and plastic bottle packaging

according to the American flexible packaging Association, by 2003, the demand for basic packaging of pharmaceutical products in the world will increase by 4.2%, and the total output value will reach US $11.2 billion. In 2019, it will reach more than 150000 tons; In the next five years, pharmaceutical packaging will become the second largest economic growth point of the flexible packaging industry. To seize this opportunity, experts believe that China's pharmaceutical packaging should do the following: first, accelerate the promotion and application of plastic containers for pharmaceutical oral liquids; Second, to speed up the development of plastic hollow container packaging of traditional Chinese medicine, we should use more plastic hollow containers made of HDPE, PP, pet, pen and other materials and using injection blow molding and other molding processes. The mouth of the hollow container is sealed with aluminum foil electromagnetic induction gasket to enhance the safety protection of drugs, and speed up the promotion and application of plastic composite membrane bag packaging of traditional Chinese medicine

it should be said that pharmaceutical packaging will have a rapid development in the next few years, with good prospects and large space. In the future, there will be more and more single dose packaging of drugs, and foreign pharmaceutical enterprises also began to rush into the Chinese market in only one month. How to seize this opportunity is worth thinking about by Chinese pharmaceutical packaging enterprises. Ji, director of Shanghai Pharmaceutical Packaging Materials Testing Institute, believes that first of all, we should strengthen the R & D capacity of enterprises and improve the grade of packaging materials. In the future, the trend of oligopoly of pharmaceutical enterprises will become more and more obvious, and their procurement will be collectivized. For packaging materials enterprises, some major special machines such as exhaust extruder, tandem mill screw extruder, reciprocating pin screw extruder, foaming extruder Extruders with melt gear pumps, tandem multi-stage extruders, planetary screw extruders and other manufacturers in China are said to be a severe challenge, which requires pharmaceutical packaging enterprises to take a long view and implement the development strategy of going out and standing; We should constantly innovate in new materials and products, have our own R & D team, have packaging products with independent property rights, and take the road of high-quality packaging and green packaging

Secretary General Chen of the packaging and Printing Committee of China Packaging Technology Association believes that although traditional Chinese medicine has a history of thousands of years, it has failed to enter the European and American markets on a large scale. In addition to the outdated production technology and some prejudice of European and American countries against traditional Chinese medicine, the failure of pharmaceutical packaging to implement national standards is also an important reason. The standard problem of traditional Chinese medicine has always been the threshold for traditional Chinese medicine manufacturers to expand to overseas markets. From the perspective of market, the difficulty in exporting Chinese patent medicine is actually the problem of material selection rather than the problem of packaging materials themselves. In this regard, director Ji of Shanghai Pharmaceutical Packaging Materials Testing Institute believes that it is wise to choose appropriate packaging materials according to the characteristics of drugs. At the same time, we should develop green packaging, protect the environment and promote the sustainable development of society. After China's entry into WTO, tariff barriers have been gradually eliminated, but technical barriers and environmental barriers are gradually forming. How to grasp the future development trend is worthy of enterprises' attention

after China's entry into WTO, domestic pharmaceutical enterprises will actively participate in the competition in the international market. Secretary General Chen of the packaging and Printing Committee of China Packaging Technology Association said that in order to eliminate the technical barriers caused by pharmaceutical packaging and other reasons, advanced packaging equipment and materials that meet international standards will be needed to cooperate with its development, which also puts forward higher requirements and broader market space for domestic pharmaceutical packaging enterprises. From the perspective of the enterprise itself, the packaging of drugs should be more concise, clear and beautiful. On the premise of ensuring that it is not easy to be damaged during transportation, materials should be saved as much as possible, and excessive packaging should not be allowed. The market competitiveness of the enterprise should be improved by continuously improving the quality of its employees. The national macro-control department should also speed up the legislative work of packaging, raise the technical threshold, and constantly guide the benign development of enterprises through macro-control
