The deaths due to poisoning among the children aging between 10-14 is a growing concern, which is caused by ingesting poisonous items kept at home pesticides, prescribed drug, and chemicals among others. In an attempt to reduce the deaths and non-fatal poisoning caused by such instances, these poisonous item manufacturers have to include child-resistant packaging in their products. Child-resistant packaging is a type of special packaging to keep away the children from the above mentioned toxic items. Child resistant packaging usually consists of safety cap which needs some trick to open and is too complicated for the young ones to open, thus eliminating the risk of consumption.
The growth of global child-resistant packaging market is driven by the rising concern about the child death and non-fatal poisoning caused by ingestion of poisonous items such as pesticides, household chemicals, prescribed drugs and insecticide among others. As per WHO (World Health Organization) poisoning by ingesting toxic items kept in the household is the prime reason of death among children aged through 14, around 3000 children succumb to death each year due to poisoning. Thus, the demand for child-resistant packaging from the industries manufacturing the above mentioned poisonous items can be attributed to the growth of the global child-resistant packaging market.
Another key factor driving the growth of child-resistant packaging market is mandatory regulations for toxic items to include child-resistant packaging, for instance, the pesticide manufacturers should comply with US EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) pesticide regulations for child-resistant packaging. Trends noted for child-resistant packaging market include product innovations such as special blister packaging, which are used extensively in pharmaceutical industry. The production of high-quality child resistant closure is a costlier affair along with the stringent testing procedure for child resting package might hamper the growth of global child-resistant packaging market.
The global child resistant packaging market is segmented on the basis of child resistant packaging types, applications, and region.
On the basis of child resistant packaging type, the global child resistant packaging market is segmented into:
- Reclosable Packaging
