Market outlook of tube packaging
The market will grow moderately during the forecast period because of the boom in the retail industry. Increased disposable income and growing demand for convenient packaging are fueling the demand growth. Technavio’s tube packaging market research report estimates the global tube packaging market to grow at a CAGR of over 7% over the next four years.
The increasing demand for small size packs of cosmetic and personal care products worldwide is also contributing to the expansion of this market. However, inflation, stringent government regulations, and increased competition among companies hinder its growth. To overcome these challenges, market vendors are focusing on packaging as an important tool for brand differentiation through innovative designs and colors. The availability of a wide range of innovative tube packaging solutions is projected to have a positive influence on the demand for tube packaging during the forecast period.
Segmentation of global tube packaging market by end-users
• Cosmetic and oral care
• Food and beverages
The demand for tube packing from the pharmaceutical industry has increased significantly with the introduction of new drugs in the market. Most creams are packed in tubes, as they allow measured amounts to be dispensed easily and provide better reclosure to the pack.
Other major factors like advances in manufacturing processes are also fueling market growth. For instance, tubes made up of tin, aluminum, and lead are common in the pharmaceutical industry. Lamination of tin-coated lead provides enhanced appearance and oxidation resistance to the packaging. Plastics are preferred over aluminum, as it becomes hard and starts developing leaks.
