Published Date : Feb 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Chemical and Material

The global Tube Packaging market size is expected to be worth around US$ 17.11 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Tube Packaging market size was valued at US$ 10.01 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

Rising demand from end-use industries including personal care, cosmetics, and is expected to drive the market growth. Higher consumer awareness about health and wellness is expected to increase the demand for anti-tan, anti-aging, sunblocks, and other creams, which, in turn, is expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

Tube packaging has higher applicability in the healthcare industry owing to its ability to maintain optimal packaging conditions to prolong the shelf life of the packaged products. Thus, the ease of applicability and easy dispensability is expected tocontributeto the rising product demand in healthcare applications. Increasing healthcare spending across the globe is expected to drive the pharmaceutical industry.This is expected to augment market growth.

The Covid-19 pandemic is expected to result in economic instability and thus increasing unemployment forthe short term. As per the International Monetary Fund (IMF), over 170 countries across the world witnessed a decline in per capita income in 2020. This changing income pattern is expected to affect the demand for luxurious or high-end cosmetic products, which, in turn, will have a negative impact on themarket growth. The market is highly competitive and moderately fragmentedwith the presence of multiple global and regional players. Domestic players are constantly challenging global companies, in terms of product development and innovation.

Report Highlights

the squeeze and collapsible segment dominated the global market with a share of over 71% in 2020. The segment is also expected to register the fastest CAGR from 2021 to 2028 owing to higher product penetration in the end-user industries, such as personal care & oral care and healthcare. The plastic squeeze type is the most prominently used product as it is lightweight, non-breakable, and leakproof. Healthcare and oral care applications majorly use the laminated and aluminum collapsible type. Collapsible tubes do not regain their original shape after the pressure is released hence they are more suitable for the packaging of ointment and creams.

The twist type segment is expected to witness a significant CAGR over the forecast period. These types are majorly used for packaging consumer goods including gums, adhesives, and paints and soft-solid products including glue, balm, and others. Ease of usability and precise dispensing are the key features driving the demand for twist type. Moreover, improved barrier protection and lower storage capacity make it an ideal solution for the packaging of luxury products. However, limited opportunities related to the reusability of the products are expected to hinder the segment growth over the forecast period.

In terms of revenue, laminated tubes dominated the market with a market share exceeding 44% in 2020. The segment will expand further at the fastest CAGR from 2021 to 2028 due to the high demand for laminates as it combines the properties of both plastic and metal, and thereby protects the products from spoilage.

Laminated tubes are produced using several layers of polymers and other materials. These layers act as an excellent barrier to moisture, light, and air, leading to the increased shelf life of the products stored in them. They are generally available in two types, namely Aluminum Barrier Laminate (ABL) and Plastic Barrier Laminate (PBL) tubes. The ABL products use aluminum foil as a barrier and PBL products have multiple layers of plastic foil as a barrier.

In terms of revenue, the plastic tubes segment held the second-largest share of the global tube market and is expected to grow at a steady CAGR over the forecast period. Plastic tubes are majorly produced with the help of extrusion using monomers including LDPE, LLDPE, MDPE, and HDPE. Some tubes are also co-extruded with multiple layers of these monomers. Constant innovations in material development including biodegradable plastics are expected to drive the segment despite stringent government regulations regarding plastic usage and recycling.

The aluminum product segment is expected to witness considerable growth over the forecast period. Aluminum tubes are corrosion-resistant, airtight, and impermeable and thus, provide excellent protection against contamination. However, the material faces certain challenges including high cost and inability to retain shape after usage, which is expected to hinder the segment growth to some extent.

The personal care & oral care application segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 67% in 2020. Growing awareness regarding health and wellness coupled with higher demand for chemical-free, organic products is expected to drive the segment growth over the forecast period. The increasing geriatric population, especially in the Europe and North America regions, is expected to increase the demand for cosmetic products with anti-aging properties.

The healthcare application segment held the second-largest revenue share in 2020 and is projected to expand at a steady CAGR during the forecast period. The rise in healthcare spending and the presence of prominent pharmaceutical manufacturing companies, such as Pfizer, Inc. and Johnson & Johnson, in North America is expected to drive the product demand over the forecast period. The food application segment is also likely to have significant growth during the forecast period due to high product demand for the packaging of semi-liquid and liquid food products including sauces, ketchup, dressings, creams, salsa, and beverages.

North America dominated the industry with a revenue share of 32.59% in 2020 and is expected to maintain the leading position over the forecast period. The presence of well-established personal care and healthcare industries in the region is responsible for the higher market share. Asia Pacific is projected to be the fastest-growing regional market over the forecast period. Countries like India, China, and South Korea are emerging as manufacturing hubs in the region. The growing population and disposable income levels are also contributing to the region’s growth.

The market participants in Europe are continuously involved in the new product development to match the increasing demand from various end-user industries. For instance, in October 2019, Stora Enso developed paperboard tube packaging for cosmetic products, which is biodegradable, renewable, and an alternative for traditional plastic packaging.

The Middle East & Africa is also known to be fast-developing region, where most of the population is earning well along with being inclined toward consumerism. The consumers in the region are becoming less brand loyal owing to the availability of comparatively cheaper alternatives. This trend defines that demand for various personal care, healthcare, and packaged food products is rising, which will further bolster the market growth.
