Aerosol Packaging Market

Cosmetics and Personal Care Application Segment to Hold Maximum Revenue Share Throughout the Forecast Period: Global Industry Analysis 2012 - 2016 and Opportunity Assessment 2017 - 2027

Considerable market penetration and high consumption levels observed in the North America aerosol packaging market

The global aerosol packaging market has witnessed noticeable growth in the last few years and is anticipated to register significant CAGR over the forecast period 2017-2027, mainly due to increasing penetration in emerging markets aided by the rise in disposable income of middle-class households. North America leads the aerosol packaging market in terms of both value and volume, due to high consumption levels and considerable market penetration.

However, APEJ is anticipated to overtake North America in terms of volume by 2027 and is expected to gain considerable market value share. The emerging markets including Latin America and APEJ are expected to offer sizable demand for aerosol packaging in the next few years. 

The demand for new and innovative products including sun care and hair spray products is increasing in developed regions such as Japan and North America. Tin-plated steel is the most preferred material type for the production of aerosol cans due to its high energy efficiency and recyclability features. The growth rate in the pharmaceutical sector is stagnant because of some adverse health effects caused by harmful propellants present in aerosol products.

Decreasing demand for nasal sprays, shaving foams and increasing demand for roll-ons likely to hamper the growth of the global aerosol packaging market

Nasal sprays contain the calcitonin drug that is used for the treatment of osteoporosis. This drug poses an increased risk of cancer. Therefore it is suggested by the Health Canada Report that some alternative drug should be used for the treatment of bone disorders. Nasal sprays that contained calcitonin drug were already withdrawn from the Canadian market in 2013. This move is likely to affect the pharmaceutical segment of the global aerosol packaging market across the globe.

Customers across the world are changing their preferences towards more environment friendly packaging products due to the various harmful effects of packaging products. Deodorant sprays are packed in aerosol cans that contain few volatile organic compounds, which are considered harmful by many research organisations.

These volatile organic compounds are harmful to the environment. As a result, consumers are preferring roll-ons as an alternative to deodorant sprays. This is likely to decrease the demand for aerosol packaging products worldwide.

The growing trend to maintain a bearded look in the adult male population across the globe is resulting in a decline in the demand for shaving products in the global market. This reduced demand for shaving foams and gels is expected to result in minimising the demand for aerosol packaging products. This trait will not only decrease the revenues of companies operating in the worldwide market but will also hamper the future trends and prospects of the aerosol packaging industry.

Cosmetics and personal care application segment is a high growth segment in the global aerosol packaging market

The personal care and cosmetics segment by application is anticipated to be a major contributor to the global aerosol packaging market. This segment will continue to hold a sustained 40% market share throughout the forecast period 2017 – 2027, witnessing an increase of 60 basis points during the period of assessment. The global market for cosmetics and personal care is estimated to be valued at more than US$ 2 Bn in 2017 and is projected to rise to more than US$ 4 Bn by the end of 2027.

This segment is estimated to create an incremental $ opportunity of a little more than US$ 1.50 Bn during 2017-2027.  In terms of volume, the cosmetics and personal care segment is expected to witness 1.5X growth by the end of 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 4.3%.
