Global Market Outlook on Aerosols Strategy

The global aerosol market is expected to reach $6.6 billion by 2023, and is growing at an annual growth rate of 4–5 percent

The demand for aerosol technology is insistently growing, for reasons such as ease and convenience of use, especially in the personal care segment

Global Aerosol Production

  • Markets such as the US and Europe, predominantly offer a more technologically advanced, stable yet fragmented supply base
  • Countries such as Brazil and China are growing low-cost markets have high potential with respect to demand for aerosol filling and formulation services. Global players can look to establish strong supplier ties and can focus on a regional sourcing strategy to achieve cost savings

Market Outlook: US & Europe

The US market is fragmented, yet has industry specific and technologically advanced manufacturers. Many suppliers are open to adopt environment-friendly propellants, and are ready to experiment and formulate different kinds of innovative products

Europe, being a mature supply market, also ranks high in parameters of innovation and supply assurance and the demand from the personal care industry has been the highest

US: Aerosol Production

  • The fragmented supply base in the US is revamping itself, in terms of new technology and market trends and drastic market growth is not expected in coming years
  • The increasing awareness of Clean Development Mechanism and Montreal Protocol has been encouraging suppliers to use alternative, green propellants and restrict the usage of products, emitting volatile organic compounds
  • Strong regulatory pressure may also have an adverse effect in the demand for aerosols, as the shift to non-HFC compositions is costly and there is ample availability of supply base in other countries

Cross-Industry Demand Analysis

The demand for aerosol filling is dominated by home and personal care industries globally. The growth of all key industries are stable.

Despite a surging demand from the food industry, there will be no major disruptions in the supply market, as both these industries do not have a common supply base

Home and Personal Care

  • The home care industry is expected to grow at 4.6 percent, while the beauty and personal care industry is set to grow between 3.5 percent and 4.5 percent over the next five years
  • Demand will build through product variation and innovation, across SKUs

Industrial and Automobile

  • The industrial and manufacturing industry also has been forecasted to grow between 3 percent and 4 percent in the next five years
  • The demand from these industries and the supply base are notably large in China, forming almost 32 percent of the total demand from end-user industries


  • The processed food and packaging market is expected to grow between 4 percent and 5 percent in the next five years
  • The food industry is the most recent and upcoming entrant into the aerosol filling market

SWOT Analysis

The aerosols industry has high growth potential, with a strong inclination towards sustainability in various fronts, right from key raw materials to packaging. Regulations and buyer's preference towards low cost, yet sustainable production will drive the industry's growth in the following years to come


  • High and growing demand from personal and home care segments
  • Rising demand from food and industrial segments
  • Growing living standards in previously dormant markets, such as China, India, Brazil, Mexico are generating demand
  • Sustainable innovations have helped in maintaining interest among buyers for aerosol-based packaging


  • Recurrently changing regulations for aerosols create instability, in terms of design and manufacturing
  • Increasing awareness of newer alternatives and innovations in developed markets has led to temporary stagnation, where leading global players await for their competitors to test waters in terms of experimenting and investing in a technology


  • Mature markets such as North America and Europe are strong consumer base, and has scope for new product development
  • Spray packages in healthcare and food aerosols offer potential for growth
  • Growth of the local supply market in emerging economies drives growth for large suppliers, enhancing innovation and quality of production globally


  • The major threat related to aerosol products is the environmental and human concern associated with it
  • Another threat is the regulations  that aim at gradually restricting the usage of environmentally damaging ingredients, which exerts pressure on R&D to formulate, using alternative chemicals, which may cost a considerable amount of time and money
