We can imagine 2 points of view for the pharmaceutics market:

- On the one hand, we can consider that the aspect of the bottle is not very important for the customer because it is not for pleasure that he buys it. Also the producer of the meds will not privilege the aesthetics and buy probably a HDPE bottle to fill customers' attempts. Moreover the HDPE aspect looks artificial and expresses a chemical image to the customer. So the image of the bottle corresponds to the image of meds: artificial, chemical.

- On the other hand, the PET has quite the same aspect as glass and meds are usually in glass packaging. So the traditional substitute to the glass would be to PET which enables to see the product inside the packaging which is not the case with the HDPE.

Pharmaceutics products don't need to attract the customers because it is not a pleasure product but a necessity for the customer. So the packaging doesn't really have to be attractive for the customers. Moreover the bottle is usually sold into a carton packaging so it is not viewable for the customer in the pharmacy.
The problem is that the customer cannot clearly see the product with HDPE packaging and it matters for some customers who want to see before taking the meds what it looks like. It is reassuring for some of the customers not to have the impression that the manufacturer wanted to hide the product.
