Report Highlights: Important Revelations

  • North American aerosol packaging market: a dominant force.
  • Aerosol packaging growth takes centre stage in Europe.
  • Aluminium is the foundation of aerosol packaging.
  • Investigating the rising interest in aerosol cans for packaging.
  • Delving into the dynamics of aerosol packaging in personal care.

Aerosol packing is a way of packaging products in containers that use fuel to discharge the contents in the form of a slight mist, foam, or spray. Aerosol packaging, invented by an American chemist in 1941, has become common in various industries, including food, medicines, cosmetics, and household cleaning. It provides consumers with quick answers for everyday chores, such as styling hair with hairspray and disinfecting surfaces with cleaning goods. These items are distributed from aluminium cylinders or cans, which function similarly to bottles but release contents as a mist or foam spray when a spray button or valve is pressed. The container’s design incorporates a dip tube that extends to the product and mixes it with a vaporized fuel during release, ensuring that only the desired ingredient is disseminated.

The aerosol packaging market is a thriving sector of the packaging industry, enabling the manufacture and distribution of containers for a wide range of consumer and industrial products. Aerosol packaging uses propellants to efficiently spread liquid or particle substances, benefiting various industries such as personal care, home products, automotive, and healthcare.

Aerosol Packaging Market, DRO


  • Aerosol packaging offers convenience in application and usage, allowing consumers to dispense products in controlled amounts easily. 


  • Aerosol packaging has aroused environmental issues since it contains fuels, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and non-recyclable materials.


  • Embracing sustainability measures allows aerosol packaging makers to address environmental concerns while meeting consumer demand for eco-friendly products.

Aluminum Material the Backbone of Aerosol Packaging

Aluminium is the dominant material in aerosol packaging, providing robust protection for various products. While Peli molded watertight cases and custom-built flight cases are famous for protective cases, aluminum containers also serve an important role, albeit less well-known. The industry remains committed to sustainability, as indicated by the growing demand for aluminum cans with high percentages of post-consumer recycled materials.

The supply of high-quality aluminum scrap, critical for complicated aerosol can production, must be improved worldwide. Furthermore, achieving a uniform recycling design is essential to facilitating the efficient and safe reintroducing of aluminum aerosol cans into the recycling process while reducing material input and packaging complexity.

Aluminum bottles are widely used in the premium beverage and spirits markets for packaging chemicals, fragrances, flavors, and essential oils. Despite this, 2.9 billion units, or 3.9% fewer, were shipped globally by member businesses, according to the International Organization of Aluminum Aerosol Container Manufacturers (AEROBAL). The most common materials used for aerosol containers are steel and aluminum, with glass and plastic containers coming in second. Interestingly, more than 75% of European manufacturing in the aerosol packaging sector is accounted for by cosmetics and home goods.

For Instance,

  • In September 2023, The European range of NIVEA, 8X4, Hidrofugal, and Hansaplast deodorant cans will all have at least 50% recycled aluminum content and weigh 11.6 percent less due to material reduction.

Exploring the Surging Demand for Aerosol Cans in Packaging

Aerosol cans are a rapidly growing component of the aerosol packaging business, with manufacturing topping five billion units annually in Europe alone. The aerosol cans sector is expected to grow by 3% worldwide between 2022 and 2026. These cans, made of aluminum or steel (tinplate), serve a wide range of purposes in a variety of industries, including beauty and personal care (e.g., hair sprays, deodorants, shaving creams), food (e.g., whipped cream, dairy products), household goods, and paints and coatings. The International Organisation of Aluminium Aerosol Container Manufacturers (AEROBAL) has reported a significant increase in global deliveries of aluminum aerosol cans, with a 6.6% increase in the first half of 2023.  This increase totals over 3.2 billion units, demonstrating the strong demand and broad use of aluminum aerosol cans worldwide.

The dramatic increase in aerosol can production reflects the growing reliance on aerosol packaging solutions in various industries. Factors fueling this increase include aerosol cans’ convenience, efficiency, and adaptability, as well as advances in production techniques and materials. As demand rises, particularly in emerging economies, the aerosol packaging sector is positioned for significant growth and innovation in the years ahead.

For Instance,

  • In December 2023, Mauser Packaging Solutions Intermediate Company, Inc., a US-based company, and Taenza, S.A. de C.V., a Mexican company that makes steel pails, tin-steel general line, aerosol cans, and sanitary products, have come to a final agreement to buy newly issued shares, which make up 100% of the voting shares of both businesses.

Unveiling the Dynamics of the Aerosol Packaging Market in Personal Care

The aerosol packaging market’s personal care section includes various goods tailored to meet individual grooming and hygiene demands. This industry makes substantial use of aerosol packaging for products such as deodorants, hairsprays, shaving creams, and body sprays. Aerosol containers make it easy to dispense these solutions, allowing for precise application and consistent coverage. The personal care industry is known for perpetual innovation, with manufacturers always offering new formulations, smells, and packaging designs to satisfy changing customer preferences and trends.

Aerosol containers are predominantly built of steel and aluminum, with glass and plastic containers remaining marginal. Cosmetics and household items account for more than three-quarters.

Sustainability initiatives are gaining traction in this category, boosting demand for environmentally friendly aerosol packaging solutions built from recyclable materials and using post-consumer recycled content. As consumers place a higher value on sustainability and product efficacy, personal care firms are experimenting with new packaging designs and materials to meet these demands while retaining product integrity and consumer pleasure. With the worldwide personal care market expanding steadily, backed by rising disposable incomes and increased awareness of personal hygiene, the aerosol packaging sector within this segment is primed for further growth and innovation.
