U.S. cosmetic & toiletry containers market size

The growing popularity of sampling in the beauty market, along with the changing scenario of beauty retail distribution, is expected to contribute to significant demand for the market. Increasing penetration of international product offerings in the retail outlets, coupled with the rise of e-commerce shopping, has resulted in greater demand for the market. Considering the consumers’ busy lifestyles, manufacturers respond to their needs by offering compact container sizes made of suitable materials such as plastic or paper that are easy to use, carry, and dispense. Moreover, growing awareness among consumers regarding hygiene and beauty care routines has resulted in increased use of homemade products, which, in turn, is expected to drive the demand for cosmetic and toiletry containers for proper storage

The growing trend of DIY and handcrafted natural products is also contributing to the demand for cosmetic and toiletry containers. Growing consumers’ inclination towards natural alternatives is providing an impetus for young beauty enthusiasts to start their own handmade products, thereby propelling the growth of the global market. Fragrances, skin care lotions, scrubs and creams, and various hair products such as oils, masks, and shampoos are usually manufactured products that drive the demand for storage containers. Some of the common containers used for handmade products include BPA-free plastic bottles and lead-free jars and aluminum cans that are cost-efficient as compared to glass.

Some of the preferred storage containers used for home-brewed beauty and toiletry products are amber glass spray bottles, ball mason jars, Kids Konserve mini containers, LunchBots tiny leak-proof containers, tins without liners by SKS Bottles with a screw top or tight-fitting lids, plastic spray bottles, flip cap, and squeezable tubes. The widespread availability of fancy containers for cosmetics and toiletry products through online channels has further contributed to the growth of the market. Besides small-scaled independent beauty sellers, consumers also prefer storage for their personal use, which is driving the manufacturers to introduce refillable as well as dispensable containers. For instance, Amazon.com and Mountain Rose Herbs offer large varieties of storage containers.

Product Insights

Bottles accounted for the largest share of more than 40.0% in 2018. Considering the consumers’ nomadic lifestyles, bottles are the most preferred container type for storage and carrying various products such as cosmetics and toiletry. The cosmetic & toiletry containers market is majorly dominated by plastic bottles due to their attributes such as portability, less cost, and their prominent application for various cosmetics and toiletry containers. Plastic bottles and glass bottles have a widespread application for skin care and hygiene care products like cosmetics and toiletry and are expected to be the most preferred storage containers even in the next few years. Companies usually prefer PP, PET, and acrylic ingredients for plastic bottles.

Other containers such as small-sized glass or plastic jars and slide-in metal boxes are also expected to gain significant traction in the market. Consumers prefer to store their products such as cosmetics and toiletry in plastic and glass jars owing to their compact size, portability, and aesthetic appearance. Moreover, consumers prefer dark or opaque jars to store cosmetics, which prevents routine exposure to sunlight, thereby preventing it from any damage. Metals such as aluminum are also preferred for unbreakable packaging, which provides strong protection for cosmetics and toiletry products against moisture or high temperature.

This segment is popular owing to its benefits such as providing the consumers the advantage of scanning the product before purchase which influences their buying decision. Moreover, the availability of a wide range of products including cosmetics and toiletry containers offered by local as well as well-known brands provides consumers with large options to choose from. General stores and supermarkets/hypermarkets contribute majorly to the demand for offline channels. The layout of this distribution channel has also increased the sales volume in the supermarket and hypermarket medium. In addition, developments in terms of the organized retail sectors have been driving the segment by providing ample space and visibility for the existing and new brands to offer their products such as cosmetics and toiletry containers.
