Over the past few years, the personal care products market has been growing at a rapid pace. Even though the makeup segment has picked up speed, other segments such as cosmetics and skincare products, oils and toiletries are also growing steadily. The growth in the demand for consumer goods directly affects the packaging industry. Many consumer products are primarily packaged by using rigid plastics, led by squeezable plastic jars and plastic tubes. However, the rising environmental concerns have led to the growing use of other materials which can be easily recycled.
The personal care packaging market is one of the fastest growing markets in the global consumer goods industry. Manufacturers of conditioners, shampoos, soaps, cosmetics, body lotions, oils and toiletries, and shower gels are taking efforts to alter their packaging materials from plastic to disposable paper. The rising awareness among manufacturers to adopt eco-friendly packaging materials is expected to propel the global personal care packaging market in the long run.
Which packaging materials are in demand?
The consumption of skin care products is consistently increasing year after year. Hectic schedules and the rising levels of pollution has led to the growing demand for personal care products, thus benefiting the associated packaging industries.
The demand for male grooming products is expected to increase in the coming years. This is expected to create new growth opportunities in the global personal care packaging market. Stringent government regulations have also helped manufacturers to focus more on adopting eco-friendly packaging materials. Currently growing steadily, the global personal care packaging market is expected to catch pace in the years to come.
