Massive Scope for Incorporation of Airless Packaging into Cosmetics Industry
The global airless packaging market thrives off its superiority in terms of packaging quality over conventional methods. Airless packaging can provide a great way for distributors to save space as well as overall packaging material used, thus helping them cut costs down to a large extent over time. Additionally, the use of airless packages for products, such as airless pumps, allows a user to use up at least 95% of the contents in a bottle, which is much higher than conventional pumps. As stated by a TMR analyst, “The zero-wastage advantage presented by airless packaging alone is expected to revolutionize several industry verticals, especially the cosmetics industry. Several of the leading producers of cosmetics and personal care products, such as L’Oreal, Olay, Nivea, and Oriflame, are indulging in airless packaging and are gaining a highly positive feedback from users in terms of usable volume available in a given package.”
Low Product Differentiation could Restrict Player Profiles
One of the leading issues with airless packaging today is the very low rate of product differentiation that manufacturers can achieve. This makes it very difficult for manufacturers to achieve a high number of consumer value propositions. The lack of value propositions further makes it difficult for manufacturers to incorporate innovations and speed up development processes because they cannot tell effectively whether their products are being received well or not, making it difficult for them to understand their customers and achieve a higher level of product organization.
“There is still, however, a very high scope of growth left for the global airless packaging market. A lot of this lies in the growing demand for premium packaging and luxury packaging. The cosmetics industry especially is showing a positive inclination towards the greater use of premium packaging as it allows them to introduce several luxury cosmetic products with greater product appeal,” adds the analyst.
