Aerosol packaging to remain highly sought after

According to a recent Future Market Insights (FMI) study, the global aerosol packaging market is projected to grow at a positive pace through 2021, surpassing nearly US$ 6.72bn in 2021.

Aerosol packaging consists of various features which increase its attractiveness – light-weight, cost-effective, temperature resistant, and offering extended product life – and it is available in different materials such as aluminum, tin-plated steel, plastic, and glass.

Over the past few years, aerosol packaging is gaining popularity due to the rising use of personal care & cosmetic products. Furthermore, the rising concern about cleanliness is driving the sales of homecare sprays, which is bolstering the growth of aerosol packaging market.

FMI forecasts that there are ample opportunities for the manufacturer of aerosol packaging in the coming future due to the rise in usage of aerosol packaging in various sectors.

The expansion of the personal care and cosmetics industry will remain the biggest growth driver in most regions. FMI has forecast over 40% of aerosol packaging to be sold in the sector in 2021.
