Sustainability is the top driver of growth in the aerosol cans market, according to a recent market report, with much of the growth expected to be driven by the cosmetics and personal care industries.

The Aerosol Cans Market Size and Share Analysis – Growth Trends and Forecasts report from Mordor Intelligence forecasts that the aerosol cans market will grow approximately 17 percent from 18.54 billion units in 2023 to 21.63 billion units in 2028.

Reusability and recyclability are key factors as all primary aerosol can materials – primarily aluminum and steel but also glass and plastic – can be infinitely recycled.

The report cites the high flexibility, ease of recycling, innovative design capabilities, and the ability to reduce material consumption as top reasons for increased demand for aluminum packaging. Unlike steel, aluminum will not rust, while aluminum also offers more durability than glass and plastic.

The primary reasons for growth in cosmetics and personal care, including color cosmetics, skincare, hair care, and deodorant, include:

  • Rising disposable incomes
  • Changing consumer lifestyles
  • Product presentation and differentiation
  • Increased sensitivity about appearance
  • Emergence of natural, non-toxic, and organic products

There is also specific industry demand for aerosol cans in different parts of the world, including:

  • Perfume and scents in France
  • Automotive and machinery in Germany
  • Cosmetics and pharmaceutical packaging in Spain

Regardless of the country, region, and industry, sustainability is the biggest driver of demand for aerosol cans as brands respond to increasingly environmentally conscious consumers.
