Analysts’ Viewpoint

Since footfall at offline retail stores have reduced, cosmetics and personal care brands are bullish on eCommerce and social media marketing to boost product uptake during the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. It has been found that ball tip pipettes are growing popular in Europe, owing to advantages of a uniform drop each time and consistent dosing. The cosmetic pipette market is expected to register a modest CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period. This is evident since different bulbs in pipette dispensing system components such as those made with thermosets cannot be recycled and are potentially difficult to surface finish. Hence, manufacturers in the cosmetic pipette market should increase the availability of natural rubber, thermoplastic elastomers, and other materials in bulbs to suit specific applications in cosmetics and personal care products. They should increase R&D in pipette dispensing system components that can be easily recycled.
