Airless Packaging Market

2020 Analysis and Review: Airless Packaging Market by Material – Plastic and Glass for 2020-2030


Prioritization of health and wellness objectives has led to notable changes in the global cosmetics industry. This shift in enhanced skincare has prompted cosmetic giants to upgrade their product portfolios. This has also necessitated the need for effective packaging solutions that maintain product integrity, while appealing to the eyes of the most discerning of consumers.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Future Market Insights has revised the global airless packaging market growth projections, attributed to shortfalls in production cycles and supply chain disruptions. Despite this revision, growth prospects appear largely positive for the assessment period 2020-2030.

Despite Concerns, Plastics Continue to be Widely Used

Plastic airless packaging is expected to be the most widely sold material, with prominent vendors preferring it due to its affordability and easy moldability. Moreover, plastics such as polypropylene are inert towards solvents, acids and alkalis.

Glass is the 2nd most popular packaging material, attributed to its widespread usage in preserving emulsions. Glass jars facilitate easy removal of the product with fingers, besides providing an aesthetically pleasing appearance, thereby attracting more customers.

Bottles & Jars: Preferred Airless Packaging Type

Bottles & jars are gaining immense traction due to their high capacity to hold voluminous amounts of cosmetic formulations and easy storage.

At the same time, airless tubes are expected to expand the fastest, attributed to heightening demand for lightweight and disposable packaging solutions. Airless pump tubes offer nearly 100% product evacuation, rendering those highly preferred options for various cosmetics manufacturers.

Europe to Pivot Market Growth

Europe will maintain its position as the largest market for airless packaging globally. This is attributed to a surging demand for premium cosmetic products, compelling major cosmetic giants to establish their base across prominent countries.

North America is expected to emerge as the 2nd largest market, owing to a prolifically expanding beauty and cosmetics industry. Revenues will continue to be concentrated in the US, with Canada accounting for less than 20% share of the North American market.

Growing awareness about cosmetics is prompting various companies to foray into the Asian markets. East Asia, especially China, offers highly impressive growth opportunities due to a large population base and favorable business policies.

  • Which is the largest market for airless packaging globally?

    Europe is poised to emerge as the kingpin of the global airless packaging market, attributed to surging demand for premium cosmetics which has attracted numerous manufacturers to establish their production units in several countries.
