    Increasing Preference over Premiumization

    • The growing preference of packaging premiumization in the west is driving the sale of plastic tube, especially in the skin care segment. New clear tube options are gaining preference over laminates in key end-use segments, like cosmetic and oral care, owing to its see-through and bounce-back properties

    Growth in Injection Molded Tubes
