Ability to Keep Intact Air-sensitive Formulations Promotes Uptake of Product

Airless packaging solutions are used in bottles, jars, or tubes. They are basically a type of packaging and dispensing system that leverage the difference in environmental pressure to build a vacuum that can release a product from a reservoir once aq valve is opened. Airless packages play an important role in keeping intact air-sensitive formulations.

Zero-wastage of Products, Another Advantage of Airless Packaging, Stokes Sales

Airless packaging brings about zero-wastage on account of which it is finding use in a number of industry verticals. The personal care and cosmetics industry among them is at the forefront of driving demand. In fact, some of the big shot makeup and personal care products’ companies of the likes of Nivea, Olay, Oriflame, and L'Oreal are increasingly opting for airless packaging solutions and this has resulted in their swift uptake in the market.

“The main appeal of airless packaging arises from its ability to minimize wastage. Deploying airless packaging for items such as airless pumps, for example, helps to access almost 95 percent of the content in a container. This is considerably higher than what is accomplished via traditional pumps. The the absence of air also helps to retain the efficacy and freshness of the product,” adds the lead analyst of the TMR report.

A challenge facing the market for airless packaging is little scope for product differentiation. This limits the chances of manufacturers to up sales by enticing more consumers.
