What is Pharmaceutical Packaging Material?
Suppose you’re looking around a pharmacy and notice all types of drug packaging. Generally, pharmaceutical companies choose various types of packaging to suit the type of drug while catering to modern consumer preferences. Besides being used to store and protect drugs, pharmaceutical packaging is also vital for identification purposes, promoting brands, or facilitating the use of pharmaceutical products.
Usually, drugs are covered in paper or other packaging materials containing complete detail about the product while preventing potential damage and offering an attractive look. The FDA approves the following types of tamper-resistant packaging:
- Paper, film wrappers, breakable caps
- Blister packages, strip packages
- Bubble pack, shrink seals
- Plastic pouches, bottle seals
- Tape seals, aerosol containers
- Glass containers
At PREMIUM Paper Box, we’ve been manufacturing high-quality, custom paper boxes that comply with rigorous FDA labeling standards and other technical requirements for more than 15 years. We continue to offer high-quality products due to market adaptability and customer care.
What Are the Types of Pharmaceutical Packaging?
Pharmaceutical packaging is classified into the following categories:
- Primary packaging
- Secondary packaging
- Tertiary packaging
Primary packaging refers to the pharmaceutical product's material, including bottles, blister packs, vials, syringes, ampoules, sachets, blister packaging, and unit dose packaging. On the other hand, secondary packaging refers to the exterior packaging of the primary packaging that helps differentiate the packages and protect or label the drug products inside.
The most commonly used examples include paperboard boxes and cardboard cartons. The secondary packaging also tells your customers more about your product while ensuring the drugs remain in pristine condition.
Tertiary packaging is used to group larger quantities or for the bulk transportation of pharmaceutical products from point A to point B. Moreover, it facilitates the bulk handling, transportation, and protection of various sales units or secondary packaging while grouping everything into unit loads during transit. The customer very rarely sees this kind of packaging.
What Are the Roles of Pharmaceutical Packaging?
Packaging is a critical part of all the products that require transportation. Sturdy packaging helps prevent damage during transit, provides all the protection the product needs before it reaches its destination, and focuses on keeping the consumers safe. This is why at PREMIUM Paper Box, we take the utmost care when it comes to pharmaceutical paper packaging.

For example, during transportation, various factors could cause damage to the primary packaging, exposing the content and affecting its medical value.

It adds extra protection to the initial packaging and protects the pharmaceutical products while minimizing potential damage and missing items. Our team always tries to foresee weak spots when it comes to packaging and provides the best solutions.
