Drivers & Restraints:

High Demand for Derma Beauty and Skin Care Products to Bolster Growth

The high demand for hair colors, fragrances, night skin repair creams, and sunscreens is set to accelerate the Europe plastics cosmetic packaging market growth in the near future. As per a report by Cosmetics Europe, Germany held the largest cosmetics and personal care industry worth €14 billion in 2019. Also, the increasing demand for derma beauty and skincare products would aid growth. However, the rising usage of single-use plastics is set to increase the amount of waste. Hence, government bodies are implementing various norms to encourage industries to use sustainable packaging solutions, such as paper, paperboards, and glass. This factor is expected to hinder the growth of the Europe plastic cosmetic packaging industry.
