Aerosol & Industrial Cans Market COVID-19 Impact

Aerosol can production was initially halted due to the countries' sudden lockdown and the shutdown of manufacturing facilities and operations. Because most aerosol can products, except healthcare, fall into the non-essential category, manufacturers have been forced to halt production. To combat the pandemic's losses, businesses began producing sanitizer bottles, facemasks, and other essential items. Because the majority of aerosol can package products are non-essential, customers are willing to invest in them for immediate and short-term use, resulting in a smaller average can size. Personal care product demand has decreased dramatically at beauty spas, salons, and personal care parlors, but has increased at homes. People have begun to use personal care products at home more frequently, increasing in demand for aerosol cans. The same consumer behavior has been observed all over the world when it comes to household care and automotive products. People who have spare time at home have taken on the responsibility of maintaining their own homes and vehicles. Third-party service providers have decreased their demand for aerosol can-packed products in household care and automotive. The above-mentioned commutative increase in demand for aerosol cans is insufficient to close the demand gap created by the pandemic. Healthcare aerosol cans are considered essential products, and their demand has grown in comparison to other aerosol cans (such as personal care, household, and automotive).

Aerosol & Industrial Cans Market Segment Analysis – By Structure

The two-piece segment held a significant share in the aerosol & industrial cans market in 2020. The two-piece can is a packaging container with a bottom end and body shaped from one sheet of metal by deep drawing, and a second end sewn to the can to adjacent it. The two-piece can get its name from the fact that the entire can is made up of two pieces. The two-piece can have several advantages over the three-piece and one-piece cans. For instance, the can body has no side seams and no seam between the body and the bottom end, resulting in a tightly sealed can with less raw material consumption. The body of the can be fully decorated and printed, and the can-making process is simple and quick. Thus, these advantages are contributing towards its market growth.

Aerosol & Industrial Cans Market Segment Analysis – By Material

The metal segment held the highest share in the aerosol & industrial cans market in 2020 and is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% during 2021-2026. Metals such as steel and aluminum are some of the most preferred materials for packaging due to their wide range of properties such as being flexible in nature, lightweight, impermeable, shatterproof, corrosion-resistant, and recyclable. Aluminum cans recycle at a higher rate and contain more recycled material than other package types. Because they are lightweight, stackable, and strong, brands can package and transport more beverages with less material. Aluminum aerosol cans keep the contents fresh for a long time by preventing high volatile constituents from escaping. These factors attribute to the large market share of metals in the aerosol & industrial cans market.

Aerosol & Industrial Cans Market Segment Analysis – By Propellant

The liquefied gas segment held the highest share in the aerosol & industrial cans market in 2020. Under pressure, liquefied propellants are gases that exist as liquids. The propellant exists primarily as a liquid because the aerosol is under pressure. Even when the product level drops, more liquefied gas propellant evaporates to maintain constant pressure in the space above the product in the case of liquefied gas propellant. This helps to keep the spray's performance throughout the life of the aerosol can. In addition, when compared to other propellants such as hydrocarbons and chlorofluorocarbons, LPG is significantly less expensive. This attributes to the market growth of liquefied gas propellants.

Aerosol & Industrial Cans Market Drivers

Escalating Personal Care Industry

End-use industries such as cosmetics and personal care, food and beverages, and healthcare are increasing their demand for aerosol cans. The personal care industry accounts for nearly all of the aerosol and industrial cans market, and its development highlights the aerosol and industrial cans market's potential. Consumer goods segments such as beauty and personal care are among the fastest-growing. For instance, Thailand's beauty and personal care products market was worth around US$6.2 billion in 2018 and is forecast to rise to US$8.0 billion by 2022, according to the International Trade Administration (ITA). Over the last six years, Thailand's beauty industry has grown at a rate of 7.2-7.9% per year. From 2019 to 2022, Thailand's beauty and personal care market is expected to grow at a healthy 7.3 percent per year. South Korea is the world's ninth-largest cosmetics market, accounting for nearly 2.8 percent of global sales. The market was estimated to be worth $9.3 billion in 2018, with total local production and exports rising by 14.7 percent and 26.5 percent, respectively, from the previous year. For the past five years, the market has grown at a rate of 5.4 percent per year (2014-2018). Personal care products such as deodorants, hair sprays, and face and body creams are in high demand due to factors such as rising disposable income, changing consumer lifestyles, and product presentation and differentiation, which is accelerating the consumption of aerosol and industrial cans and driving the market growth. 

The growing environmental awareness

Another growth-inducing factor is rising consumer awareness and environmentally friendly behavior, which is leading to innovative ideas for creating recyclability and reusability of aerosol cans. Aerosol cans made of recyclable aluminum are reusable, making them environmentally friendly, cost-effective, and energy-efficient. The practice of recycling aluminum is used in the manufacturing of aerosol cans because it is more energy-efficient than producing new aluminum. Steel and aluminum aerosol cans are made of 100 percent recyclable materials. Manufacturers of aerosol cans prefer aluminum as a material because it can be recycled indefinitely without losing quality. Aluminum is also known as a continuous material because it can be recycled indefinitely without losing quality. Overall, the global aerosol can market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period, owing to the recyclability of aerosol cans as well as the growth of end-use industries such as cosmetics & personal care, food & beverages, and healthcare, and more. 

Aerosol & Industrial Cans Market Challenges

Availability of alternatives in terms of packaging and price

The materials used in the production of aerosol cans are more expensive than their traditional counterparts. Furthermore, manufacturing costs, as well as disposal costs, contribute to the total cost of the product. There are cheaper alternatives in the form of a tube, thermoform other flexible packages, and rigid plastic and metal packages for applications that do not require spray dispensing. Aerosol cans are being phased out in favor of refillable spray bottles for spray applications.
