Market Overview

The United States aerosol cans market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 1.31% over the forecast period (2021-2026). Owing to the convenience and strength offered by aerosol packaging, aerosol cans have become the standard packaging used in many industries and are growing in the United States.

  • The packaging has increased the value of these cans from aesthetic purposes to value creation to the application of the product for storage, transportation, and ease of use. These cans are mostly made of aluminum or steel. They are one of the effective packaging solutions that fit all the features related to execution during storage, transportation, and convenience to the consumer.
  • Continuously improving consumer lifestyle is backing the demand from the personal care and cosmetic industry. Aerosol cans enable 360 degrees application and consume 25% less substance for relative area coverage. Furthermore, the fast adaptation of spray paints in the automotive industry for personalization and maintenance purposes has created numerous opportunities for the growth of the aerosol cans market in the United States.
  • High investment in R&D to manufacture environmentally sustainable aerosol cans further supports the growth of the aerosol cans market in the region. However, stringent EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) regulations regarding the use of CFC, HCFC, and HFC components in aerosols hams market growth.
  • The impact of the outbreak of COVID-19 on the market is expected to be significant in the short-run as the global lockdown has brought the entire manufacturing units to an almost grinding halt, globally. It will cause the demand and supply system to be suboptimal and reduce the profit margins. But, in the long-run, with businesses restarting normally and e-commerce trends on the rise, the market is expected to rebound.

Key Market Trends

Aluminum Cans to Register Highest Growth

  • Aluminum cans are expected to register a CAGR of around 2% over the forecast period due to their distinct features, such as lightweight, stackability, durability, resistance to transportation, hermetically sealed cover, irregular handling, and easy recyclability. They allow brands to package and transport more beverages using less material.
  • An increase in the intake of processed food and beverages, an increase in the shelf life of products, and growth in the disposable income of consumers, as well as their ability to customize the packaging with colors, 3D prints, and embossing, stimulate the growth of the aluminum cans market in the United States.
  • Aluminum cans can be recycled repeatedly in a closed cycle, which acts as a significant driver for the growth. Thus, a few companies are opting for aluminum cans to shift toward sustainability by reducing the carbon footprint. For instance, Coca-Cola Co.’s Dasani water brand will soon be available in cans in the United States as part of its efforts to reduce plastic waste.
  • Aluminum cans have a higher recycling rate and more recycled content than competing package types. According to the Aluminum Association, it’s one of the most recycled materials on the market. Recycling saves more than 90% of the energy required to produce new metal, hence reducing the cost of production. In the United States, two aluminum cans are recycled for every three cans shipped across the region. Factors such as these will boost the market growth
  • Also, 70% of the plastic collected for recycling goes to landfills in the United States, and the increasing emphasis on reducing carbon footprint by controlling climate change is one of the growth drivers for aluminum cans in the region.
