American demand for cosmetic and toiletry containers is projected to increase 2.8 percent per year to 25.5 billion units in 2012, valued at $4.4 billion, according to a new study by The Freedonia Group.

“Cosmetic & Toiletry Containers” examines the US market for product segments such as plastic bottles, tubes, blister packs, deodorant/antiperspirant sticks, compacts, jars, and pouches and other plastic containers.

The report also concludes that, compared with competing paper, glass and metal containers, plastic will register the fastest growth through 2012 in both units and value. A relatively favorable cost structure and healthy shipment expansion will aid growth in a number of key applications, such as hair and skin care products and cosmetics.

This study contains 60 tables and 12 charts and profiles 44 companies. Market shares for the leading producers are also included. The cost of this 332-page study is US$4,600.
