Cosmetic Packaging Market Definition and Estimation:

Cosmetic packaging, as the name suggests, refers to packing cosmetics and personal care products like make-up, deodorants, fragrances, skin care products and more. It usually involves the use of containers and bottles and may occasionally use cartons, ampoules, dispensers, etc. to store products. The most widely used materials are plastic, glass and metal, however, paper may also be used in certain cases. These packaging are standardized by the International Organisation of Standardization and regulated by national and regional agencies. The packaging must be such that besides storing, it protects the product from deterioration and preserves its quality.

The global cosmetic packaging market size was USD 26.81 million in 2019 and expected to reach USD 36.15 million by 2027; this converts into a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.81% for the forecast period.

Cosmetic Packaging Market Overview:

The packaging industry receives a demand from various sectors such as food & beverage, healthcare, manufacturing, automotive, personal care & beauty, etc. As a result, the industry was expected to register steady growth. However, the pandemic led to partial or full closures of many sectors, thus creating a decline in demand for packaging. Nevertheless, the second half of 2020, with the increase in food & beverage packaging and a slight surge in demand for personal care products, offset the regression. The growing focus on sustainable packaging will boost the industry. Also, with the manufacturing sector resuming its activities, the packaging industry will display positive signs.

The Cosmetic Packaging Market is Segmented to include:

By Material Type:

  • Plastic
  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Paper

By Product Type:

  • Plastic bottles and containers
  • Glass bottles and containers
  • Metal containers
  • Folding cartons
  • Corrugated boxes
  • Tubes and sticks
  • Caps and closures
  • Pump and dispenser
  • Droppers
  • Ampoules
  • Flexible plastic packaging

By Cosmetic Type:

  • Haircare
  • Colour cosmetics
  • Skincare
  • Men’s grooming
  • Deodorants
  • Other cosmetics

Features such as low cost, lightweight, flexibility, durability, impact-resistant, spillproof, etc. have made plastic the preferred material for packaging of cosmetics. These features have resulted in the dominance of the plastic segment in 2019. It secured more than one-half of the cosmetic packaging market i.e., around USD 13 million in revenue. These features are also the reason for the segment’s anticipated high CAGR of close to 6% from 2020 to 2027.

The plastic bottles & containers segment held nearly 20% of the market in 2019. It accumulated just under USD 5 million in revenue. Bottles offer durability and can hold more volumes of the product, containers can be molded in different shapes and plastic is lightweight, flexible, transparent, and provides impact resistance. As a result, the segment is also projected to register a high CAGR of over 5.5% during the forecast period.

Skincare products have witnessed a significant demand in recent times due to the rising awareness regarding its minimum to no adverse effects. Also, the increase in skin problems is encouraging its growth. The surge in the use of anti-aging creams, sun protection creams, face creams, and more across the globe is propelling the skincare segment of the cosmetic packaging market forward. The segment garnered approximately USD 9 million in 2019 which corresponds to over 30% of the market. On the other hand, colour cosmetics, also known as make-up, is predicted to emerge as the fastest-growing segment with a CAGR of more than 6.5% from 2020 to 2027. The substantial use of these products is driving the segment’s growth.

Cosmetic Packaging Market by Geography Overview:

Based on geography, the market is segmented as below:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • APAC
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East & Africa (MEA)

North America is one of the largest markets for cosmetics, personal care products, and fragrances. The presence of players like L’Oréal, Unilever, Procter & Gamble Co., etc. is pushing for the use of cosmetics and therefore promoting the cosmetic packaging market in the region. The growing demand for skincare products and the increasing focus on innovative packaging is further boosting the market growth.

Driven by the high-income levels and rising demand for cosmetics, the Middle East is estimated to be one of the important markets for the cosmetic industry. The market in Latin America is anticipated to witness a steady growth due to the high-usage of make-up in the region.

While Asia-Pacific did capture more than 30% of the market, it is expected to grow at an approximate 6.5% CAGR during the forecast timeline. Factors contributing the growth of this market are surge in population, increasing use of cosmetics in the region, the introduction of new products such as anti-tanning solutions, upsurge in income levels, rapid urbanization, inexpensive labor, inadequate norms and standards for use of raw materials in packaging products, etc.

Cosmetic Packaging Market Dynamics:

Rapid urbanization, the surge in disposable income as well as increasing consumer consciousness towards beauty and cosmetic products have resulted in increased demand. The use of organic ingredients in colour cosmetics is motivating cosmetic packaging market growth. The rise of digital media influencers is positively influencing the market. Along with extensive marketing and the launch of new products, companies are utilizing innovative packaging to attract more consumers. This, in turn, will contribute to the progress of the market.

The most commonly used cosmetic packaging material is plastic. Most of the packaging is made of single-use plastic that is neither recyclable nor environment friendly. Furthermore, it adds to land and water pollution causing serious damage to the respective ecosystem. Several countries are now implementing stringent regulations to minimize the use of such materials. These regulations and similar initiatives will act as a restraining factor for the market’s progress.
