Industry Insights

The global cosmetic and toiletry containers market size was worth USD 26.8 billion in the year 2018 and is predicted to grow with a CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period. The rising popularity of DIY and hand-crafted beauty care products has contributed to market growth. Plastics provide higher utility in terms of performance and costs as compared to other materials, which, in turn, is expected to fuel the demand for cosmetic and toiletry containers from 2019 to 2025. 

The increasing popularity of sampling and the continuously changing beauty retail distribution are predicted to drive the market further. The easy availability of international products in retail stores along with the increase of the e-commerce sector has fueled the growth of this market. Manufacturers tend to provide product materials made of paper or plastic which are easy to use, dispense, and carry keeping in mind the customer’s busy lifestyle. Additionally, the rising awareness of consumers for beauty and hygiene care routines has strengthened the need for homemade products which is predicted to increase the demand for cosmetics and toiletry containers for storage.

The rising trend of hand-crafted and DIY products has also influenced the demand for cosmetic and toiletry containers. The consumers’ preference for natural products is encouraging young entrepreneurs to start their own handmade beauty product chains. Fragrances, scrubs and creams, skin-care lotions, and different hair products like masks, shampoos, and oil are the products that generate higher demand for such containers as storage materials.
