Keeping pace with
pharma innovation

Pharma and healthcare sectors are undergoing significant changes as a result of increased investments in R&D, novel approaches to drug development and regulatory policies. In this transformation, one thing that is being clearly underscored is the need for continuous and rapid innovation in pharma to deal with future opportunities and challenges, be it complex formulations, personalised medicines, emerging technologies or sustainability goals.

However, constant innovation will have a direct impact on packaging and necessitate the development of newer and unique solutions. Pharma packaging will have to continuously evolve and innovate to keep pace with market demands, patient requirements, medical developments, regulatory frameworks and advancements in pharma R&D.

So, Pharma Packaging and Labelling (PPL) Conclave 2022, seeks to identify and examine megatrends that will shape and influence pharma packaging to make it more effective, flexible and intuitive. To cite a few examples:

  • Impact of rising demand of self-administered medicines on pharma packaging innovation
  • Opportunities and challenges for packaging companies due to increasing need for pharma analytics
  • Innovations in drug delivery with expanding pipeline of biologicals and biosimilars
  • Storage, distribution and administration of vaccines created using different technologies i.e. mRNA, DNA, protein, and viral vectors

Experts will also discuss strategies to balance innovation with cost, functionality with aesthetics, utility with sustainability etc. They will also deliberate on how to make labelling more effective, informative and inclusive.

Thus, this edition, back in its physical format, after a gap of two years will witness leaders and veterans of the pharma packaging industry discuss and deliberate on strategies to navigate new challenges and meet mounting expectations of the pharma industry.
