Market Overview

  • The global cosmetic packaging market was valued at USD 29.07 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach about USD 37.24 billion by 2025, recording a CAGR of 4.3% over the forecast period (2020-2025).
  • The market studied is mainly dependent on the global cosmetic products market, and is subjected to similar dynamics. The increasing demand for cosmetic products in emerging countries and growing consumer awareness are driving the investments of companies that develop innovative packaging solutions. Therefore, a rise in the demand for cosmetic products is expected to boost the demand for packaging.
  • While packaging improves safety, offers convenience, and reduces theft, it is also laced with several disadvantages. Packaging can be bulky, expensive, and environmentally damaging over the course of its life cycle. Further, the rising efforts for user-friendly packaging are leading to an increase in the cost of innovative cosmetic packaging.

Key Market Trends

Caps and Closures to Account for Significant Share In The Market


  • Cosmetic manufacturers are providing enhanced value and experience to reach out to more customers by using caps and closures as a customizable extension of a package design identity.
  • While they both preserve product integrity and facilitate a product’s use by consumers, packaging solution providers are pairing these caps with ergonomic designs to add to their current functions. Thus, the pairing of applicators and cosmetics' closures has also been witnessed amongst manufacturers.
  • This development in the market has redefined time-to-market while simplifying projects and shortening lead time, which, in turn, makes the products and packages ready-to-go.
  • There is a growing attraction for click and close caps to provide the audial assurance and satisfactory closure of the product. Thus, the market is witnessing a growing attraction for magnets in the closures, particularly in luxury skincare packaging.
