Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2033

Child Resistant Closure Market size is poised to cross USD 48 Billion by the end of 2033, growing at a CAGR of 10% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2033. In the year 2022, the industry size of child resistant closure was over USD 25 Billion. The growth of the market is primarily attributed to reducing the risk of child poisoning by the ingestion of potentially dangerous items such as medications, household chemicals, and cosmetics. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in the United States, each year, nearly 50,000 cases of child poisoning are reported in young children.

The rise in dangerous accidental cases among children has become a major concern for pharmaceutical product packaging manufacturers in recent years. As a result, in order to reduce the mortality ratio, government bodies imposed stringent regulations requiring the use of child resistant closures on products whose consumption is estimated to endanger children's health.

Child Resistant Closure Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Use of Zip Lock Bags in Packaging – a zip lock bag, also known as a zipper bag, is a low-cost, flexible rectangular storage bag made of polyethylene or a nearly identical plastic that is sealed and opened repeatedly, either by a slider that works similarly to a zip fastener or by pinching all together two sides of a mechanical sealing mechanism. Such small steps by manufacturers and stringent norms by the government are expected to boost the child-resistant closure market in the upcoming years. It was found that in August 2022, India has become the largest exporter of zip lock bags in the world with a record number of shipments of nearly 14,780.
  • Boost in the Healthcare industry – for instance, the worldwide healthcare industry is estimated to garner a significant revenue of approximately USD 60 Billion in the year 2022.
  • Worldwide Boost in Cosmetic Industry – for instance, the global cosmetic industry is expected to reach USD 462 billion by 2027.
  • Increasing Trend of Urbanization - according to the figures provided by the World Bank, currently, the world's population living in cities is estimated to rise more than double to 6 billion by 2045.


  • Stringent Regulatory Policies - child-resistant packaging (CRP), in general, is associated with medical containers. Regulatory bodies worldwide have set standards and hold industries responsible for creating safe and secure packaging and adopting practices needed to develop child-resistant packaging.
  • High Manufacturing Cost of Child Resistance Closure
  • Increasing Cost of Raw Materials
