A Saturated Market in the Developed Countries Led To Product Innovation and Emerging Trends in the Market
The growing markets and demand for more consumer-friendly packages and product protection have propelled personal care packaging as a viable and cheaper option. Recent innovations have also made these packages eco-friendly and sustainable. Plastic remains one of the most used packing materials, more than its counterparts, such as paper, glass, and metal. The low cost of manufacturing and applications across a wide range of industry verticals is driving the growth of the personal care packaging market.
Consumer Preference Toward Plastic Packaging Products
Plastic is expected to be increasingly used for personal care packaging, as it helps manufacturers reduce cost. In the current scenario, plastics not only make packaging more effective but also make packaging more efficient, helping to conserve natural resources across the world and thus, surging the growth of the market. Increasing consumer preference for light-weight materials, durability, cost-effectiveness, and growing demand for plastics in the personal care industry are some of the key factors accelerating the growth of the market. All the above factors have enabled the global personal care packaging market to possess a huge growth potential. However, environmental concerns are evident and more countries are formulating strict regulations on the use of plastic for packaging products. The concerns about chemical properties are harming the growth of this packaging material and this may negatively influence the overall personal care packaging market.
United States the Largest Market Share
The United States is the largest economy in North America. High income levels, along with political and economic stability are driving the demand for packaging solutions in the country. The higher disposable income and penetration of technology are expected to drive the demand for personal care packaging products in the country. The growing population and concomitant demand for personal care products are the major factors responsible for the rising demand for personal care packaging. Backed by investments in technology and equipment, the personal care packaging market is expected to witness a high growth rate over the forecast period.
Disruptive Technologies to Boosting the Rapid Market Growth
Electronic packaging and smart labels are being produced by the converters and a significant implementation of these techniques is at the consumer packaging level, the adoption of electronic functionality is increasing even at a small percentage of consumer-based packaging, and this will cause a seismic shift in the personal care packaging market in globally. Additionally, increase in the annual disposable income might positively impact the overall personal care packaging market. As the packaging market has larger growth margins over the forecast period, this may proportionately influence the increase of expenditure on packaged goods and in particular personal care products. These growth dynamics might boost the overall personal care packaging market.
