Plastic to Remain Most Preferred Cosmetic Packaging Material despite Rising Popularity of Paper Packaging

However, rising consumer preference to eco-friendly products such as wood, paper, and metals is expected to hinder the growth prospects of the plastic segment to a certain extent.

Increasing awareness and implementation of stringent environmental laws along with competitive benefits have compelled users to increase use of eco-friendly materials for packaging and manufacturers to integrate eco-friendly design principles in material development processes. As a result, the global demand for materials such as paper, silicone, melamine, and bamboo is expected to see a significant rise in demand across the cosmetic packaging market in the next few years.

However, the adoption rate of metal as packaging is expected to remain low owing to higher costs in comparison with other materials.
