The cosmetics and personal care industries are instrumental in driving market growth, fueled by increasing disposable incomes, evolving consumer lifestyles, product presentation and differentiation, and the growing demand for items such as deodorants and hairsprays. Aluminum, due to high demand, is rapidly gaining popularity in these markets.
Demand for personal care products including antiperspirants, deodorants, hair sprays, hair mousses, and shaving mousses is expected to further expand the market. For instance, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported an average Consumer Price Index of 186.93 for perfume, cosmetics, nail preparations, baths, and implements in US cities in January 2023, up from 176.82 in January 2022.
However, consumers in the cosmetics and personal care sector hold significant bargaining power due to increased competition and the availability of interchangeable products from various producers. This may compel manufacturers to lower prices, posing a substantial barrier for the aerosol cans industry. Additionally, disruptions in the supply chain during the COVID-19 pandemic hindered the expansion of the aluminum sector due to rising energy prices.
There has been a notable trend of growing demand for spray products with antiviral and antibacterial properties driven by consumers’ concerns about contracting COVID-19. As lockdown restrictions were lifted, companies resumed production activities and introduced smaller-sized aerosol cans to cater to widespread customer pandemic fears.
