Airless Packaging Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, Company Analysis, Regional Insights and Forecast 2021 - 2027

The global Airless Packaging market size is expected to be worth around US$ 8.1 billion by 2027, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Airless Packaging market size was valued at US$ 5.0 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% during forecast period 2020 to 2027.

The growing demand for premium cosmetic products globally is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period. The global demand for premium cosmetics products, such as natural skin care creams, foundations, and serums, among others, has been substantially growing during the past few years. Rising demand for natural skin care products, an increasing number of working women, and the introduction of cosmetic products across the world are several other key factors contributing to the demand for premium cosmetic products. 

Growth Factors

Growing demand for premium cosmetics and increasing demand for airless packaging and industrial products are key factors augmenting the market growth. Premium cosmetic products contain active ingredients in their formulations and often get contaminated when exposed to oxygen; thus, to protect the integrity of the packed products, cosmetic manufacturers mainly opt for airless packaging solutions.

Furthermore, as premium cosmetic products are considerably expensive, consumers prefer using completely natural products. Thus, to enable easy, hassle-free, and complete product evacuation, cosmetic manufacturers opt for airless tubes, bottles, jars as they ensure nearly 95% product evacuation from airless containers. Most of the dermal drugs are offered in semisolid formulations, such as lotions, creams, ointments, gels, pastes, or foams, and and metal tubes are often preferred for their packaging owing to their low cost and compact size.

Material Insights

Plastic led the market in 2019 accounting for 63.3% of the global revenue share and is expected to retain its dominant position over the forecast period. Various types of plastic resins, including PE, PET, ABS, PMMA, and SAN, are widely utilized for manufacturing plastic-based airless bottles, jars, and tubes.

Plastic is light in weight, easy to mold, and considerably cheaper than metal and glass. Therefore, end-user companies majorly prefer plastic-based packaging. Acrylic plastic, also known as PMMA, has an appearance similar to the glass. Besides, it is unbreakable unlike glass; thus, acrylic plastic is widely utilized as an alternative to the glass for manufacturing airless packaging products.

Plastics, such as PP, have inertness toward acids, alkalis, and most solvents. As a result, the formulation packed inside the PP airless container remains unadulterated. Increasing demand for convenience, lightweight, travel-friendly packaging from cosmetics as well as pharmaceutical industries is expected to augment the growth of the plastic material segment in the coming years.

The glass segment is estimated to account for the second-largest market share. Increasing demand for sustainable packaging products by end-use industries, owing to the rising sustainability awareness among consumers is expected to drive the growth of this segment as glass is 100% recyclable.

Product Insights

Bottles & jars accounted for over 81% of the global share in 2019 and are expected to retain its leading position until 2027. The structure of bottles & jars allows easy incorporation of airless pumping mechanisms in them; besides ease of product evacuation or application from bottles & jars also makes them a favored packaging type.

Plastic and glass materials are primarily utilized to make bottles & jars owing to their low -cost and high aesthetic appeal. The bottle & jars offer convenience in use as they come in multiple volume capacities, which can be carried while traveling or for on-the-go application of packed cosmetic or pharmaceutical formulations.

Airless bottles & jars are preferred over airless pouches and tubes for the packaging of expensive or premium cosmetics and drugs as the former packaging format offers higher aesthetic appeal. Furthermore, airless tubes are majorly utilized for the packaging of smaller volumes of cosmetic or pharmaceutical formulations.

An increasing trend of smaller packaging sizes, especially in the beauty & personal care industries, owing to their ease of carrying while traveling, is expected to bolster the demand for tubes packaging type over the forecast period.

Application Insights

The personal care & home care segment led the market and accounted for 79.3% of the global revenue share in 2019. In the personal care industry, airless bottles & jars, pouches, and tubes are utilized for packaging semisolid forms, such as lotions, creams, ointments, gels, and pastes. The product maintains the integrity of formulations and extends the shelf life of products by avoiding their oxidation.

The product eliminates the need for preservatives as it provides complete isolation to the formulation from external influences, such as oxygen and UV light. This factor is expected to increase the popularity of the product within the personal care & cosmetic industry. In addition, the growing demand for preservative-free cosmetic products is expected to benefit the market growth.

Most of the topical skin medications or dermal drugs are available in semisolid formulations and extremely sensitive to environmental influences, owing to which, their performances often degrade when exposed to oxygen and sunlight. Therefore, manufacturers of such drugs are opting for airless packaging to maintain product integrity and to prevent oxidation.

Furthermore, sensitive pet care formulations, such as oils, used for the wellbeing of pet animals, including cats and dogs, are being packed in airless packaging. The packaging protects the formulation from oxidation and also offers precise, uniform, and targeted dispensation.

Regional Insights

Europe led the market and accounted for over 34.2% share of global revenue in 2019, owing to the high demand for premium cosmetics coupled with a strong presence of cosmetics manufacturing companies. The skincare brands in Europe are increasingly focusing on sustainable airless packaging to address the rising concerns pertaining to sustainability and product protection from oxidation. In February 2020, Ren Clean Skincare, a Unilever-owned skincare brand, introduced its skincare product in an airless bottle made of recycled plastic.

North America is projected to register a significant growth owing to the rapidly expanding beauty & personal care industry in Mexico and the increasing number of working women in the country.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market from 2020 to 2027 due to the high demand for premium cosmetic products and rising middle-class populations in countries, such as China, India, Indonesia, and Vietnam. Moreover, the growing penetration of organized retail sector is opening new avenues for premium cosmetic manufacturers, which is expected to favorably impact the market growth over the coming years.
