There has been a gradual shift in consumer choice from traditional bottles for pharmaceutical products to blister packaging, which is unit-dose packaging. Blister packs are used in the healthcare industry for drugs and medical devices. They are also used in wide applications in consumer goods, industrial goods, and food industries.
