In addition to this, factors, such as growing competition among manufacturers, economic growth, changing consumer preference for packaging, which is sustainable, convenient, high-quality, along with visual appeal have increased the demand for aerosol cans in the region. Also, Europe currently accounts for the highest market share in the beauty & personal care segment, across the world. The immigrant population in Europe is also playing a significant role in the growth of the market. A total of 4.7 million people migrated to one of the EU-28 member states during 2015. Aerosol deodorants and home care products are finding demand in this region from the immigrant population. With the number of immigrants expected to grow, the impact on the market is anticipated to be positive, over the forecast period. Also, countries like Spain have responded positively to the changing trends in fashion, and has embraced the aerosol packaging format. The constant gain in personal care segment, is majorly due to the persistent increase in the production of hair mousses, deodorants/antiperspirants, and shaving gels, which has shown steady growth over the years.
Personal Care to Hold the Largest Market Share
The cosmetics & personal care industry valued at EUR 80 billion at retail sales in 2015, making it the largest in the world. Rising aging population, coupled with increased disposable income, contribute to the growth of personal care sector across the world. Skin care and toiletries remain the most important product categories in Europe, followed by hair care and fragrances. Aerosol cans were majorly used for packing these products, mainly to increase their attractiveness and durability. Also, the personal care aerosol cans market in North America, primarily led by Mexico, has been buoyant, undergoing an impressive growth since 2011. The packaging available for aerosol allows full 360º usage, meaning, consumers can apply products over their whole body with a continuous spray system. Within South America, Brazil aerosol personal care segment has witnessed tremendous growth, despite high inflation in the past few years. The abnormal growth in 2015 and 2016 stems due to the fact that Brazil has stopped importing aerosol and upped the country production. Also, the increase in production has majorly been in the personal care segment. Innovations, such as Unilever’s compressed aerosol, where a 75ml can last as long as a 150ml can, and 25% less gas and aluminium are used, are appealing to the consumers.
Industrial Products and Insecticides Segment to Witness the Greatest Adoption in UK
The European economy is projected to slow in 2017 and 2018, owing to the uncertainty about the outcome of Brexit negotiations.

Greasing for industrial machinery prefers aerosol packaging over traditional application methodology. Oil and grease removal liquids, likewise, have been preferred in aerosol format than liquid application. Simultaneously, the insecticides segment has been witnessing a significant rise in production in the recent years, with growing investments in the sector, and increasing international demand. Since 2012, every passing year showed an increase in insecticides production, ranging from 50% on an average to as high as 81%. This increase is justifiable by broad use of insecticides countrywide, product delivery technique, and hygiene involved in the product packaging format.
