Future of Health, Beauty and Packaging

In response to the drive towards health and wellness, sustainability, and growth from developing regions, changes in life science, ingredients and personal care markets are observed to be striking. Ingredients and materials that enable health and wellness concepts such as nutricosmetics, cosmeceuticals and smart materials in packaging and personal protection will have a key role to play in facilitating this change.

This will also create opportunities for sustainable ingredients, packaging coatings, high barrier films, smart packaging, medical device polymers, and active pharmaceutical ingredients. 

Consumer interest in holistic health has augmented the demand for preventive healthcare. Frost & Sullivan’s dedicated Health, Beauty and Packaging Program makes informed strategic and tactical decisions based on robust and accurate insight. Our research services understand the dynamically changing consumer trends in cosmetics, household care, medical, and packaging sectors. The value at stake in understanding these long term perspectives is significant. The output of the platform is a series of specific market studies, insightful presentations, and interactive workshops.

Globalization has influenced significant lifestyle changes in the developing nations of the world. It has also led to the rise of a high-income group which thereby leads to changing patterns of demand for medical and surgical devices. Our research services help to understand technology adoption in light-weight and advanced materials, thereby creating new avenues for medical care. An average drug loses up to 36.0% of sales due to non-compliance with physician prescriptions and other medical instructions. We at Frost & Sullivan analyze the disease state, unique characteristics of the pharmaceutical market, and geographic trends to develop insights on developing smart and functional packaging that supports patient compliance and successful treatment of critical diseases.
