The report said: “The increase in outsourcing of pharmaceutical packaging is one such trend. Not only does it reduce the time for a new product to hit the market, but also enables the manufacturing firm to focus on its core competencies, reduce in-house regulatory burdens, and off-load packaging needs at peak production periods. Factors such as increased flexibility and reduced overhead costs for packaging are also supporting the increase in outsourcing of pharmaceutical packaging.”
