At 61% market share, plastic packaging—such as bottles, jars, compacts and tubes—reigns as queen for cosmetics and other personal care products.
Cosmetics, personal care products and healthcare items make up a significant portion of sales of packaging machinery, materials, supplies and services. Lipstick tubes, body lotion pumps and cartons of bandages show some of the diversity of product type and packaging format.
These products are among the most innovative, too, when it comes to packaging because sometimes it is all about good looks. High rollers like Procter & Gamble, Kimberly-Clark, Estee Lauder and Bayer consistently introduce innovative new products and new packages that raise the bar for the category as a whole.
And it’s a big genre! The global personal care market was estimated to reach $28.2 billion by 2018, growing for the five years up to then at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.9%, according to research from Smithers Pira.
