Development Trend of the World Aerosols

European aerosol data (Data source- FEA)

According to the latest statistics of the European Aerosol Federation (FEA), the total European aerosol production in 2020 is about 5.271 billion cans, and in 2010, this data was 5.158 billion cans. In 10 years, the data has fluctuated to a certain degree. In 2017, it was 5.766 billion cans. The specific data is shown in Figure-1.

European production evolution 2010-2020

Based on the analysis of aerosol data from 10 major countries and regions in the world (2010~2020), the consumption of aerosols in regions with a relatively mature and developed level of economic development is in a stable and fluctuating state. In the short term, due to the cause of the new crown epidemic (2019) Year-to-date), there has been a certain decline, such as the United States, Europe, Japan, Australia and Argentina. In emerging economies, such as China, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa and Thailand, aerosol production has increased significantly over the past 10 years. In particular, the output of aerosol products in China has increased by more than 1.5 billion cans in 10 years. The specific data is shown in Figure-2.

Worldwide aerosol production by country

In Europe, the main consumption of aerosols is the United Kingdom, Germany and France, which account for more than 60% of the total. The consumption of Italy, the Netherlands, and Spain is superimposed, accounting for 82.8%, about 4.3 billion cans (2020), and other economies. The total amount is about 17.2%. It can be seen that the impact of a country’s economic development level on the production and consumption of aerosols is obvious. The specific data are shown in Figure-3 and Figure-4.

In Europe, the total consumption of aerosols tends to be stable, and the corresponding aerosol categories have also stabilized at a certain market share throughout the year. Personal care (including various cosmetics) aerosols and household products aerosols are aerosols. The main direction of the market. Among them, personal care accounted for about 54.4% of the market share (equivalent to 2.867 billion cans), household products accounted for about 23.5% of the market share (1.238 billion cans), and automotive and industrial products, self-painting, food, pharmaceuticals and other aerosols accounted for about the market. 22.1% of the share, the specific data is shown in Figure-5.

Aerosol production by segment

In Europe, personal care products are the main consumer category in the aerosol market, accounting for about 54.4% of the total, with a total of about 2.867 billion cans, of which about 1.686 billion cans of personal care aerosols of deodorant/antiperspirant, Accounting for about 58.8%, others, such as hair spray, hair mousse, shaving mousse (gel) about 958 million cans, other categories, such as sunscreen, face, body care aerosols accounted for relatively small. In addition, although Russia has a vast territory, the total population is about 146 million, and the consumption of personal care aerosols is about 167 million cans, and the average per capita is about 1.14 cans/person. The relevant data is shown in Figure-6.

Personal care aerosol production in Europe

In Europe, household products are also the main market for aerosols, with a total consumption of about 1.238 billion cans. Air fresheners account for a relatively large proportion, followed by insecticides and related aerosols. Other categories, including fabric care, furniture care, Bathroom and kitchen cleaning care, shoe and leather care, oven cleaning, etc. also occupy a certain market share. There are about 188 million cans of household aerosols in Russia, and the relevant data is shown in Figure -7.

As a convenient packaging, the aerosol is also widely used in refinish paint, automotive and industrial, medicinal, food and other products. In Europe, the total consumption of these products is about 1.165 billion cans, of which spray paint is about 300 million cans, approximately 240 million cans of automobiles and industrial supplies, approximately 156 million cans of medicinal aerosols, and approximately 63 million cans of food aerosols. See Figure-8 for specific data.

Analysis of US Aerosol Related Data (Data from HCPA)

In 2020, the total amount of aerosols in the United States is about 3.752 billion cans, and in 2019, the total amount of food aerosols in the United States is about 571.2 million cans. Due to the impact of the epidemic and the characteristics of mature markets, the total amount of aerosols in the United States has not changed much throughout the year. Among them, personal care (including cosmetics) is about 900 million cans, and other categories, such as insecticide aerosols, self-painting, automotive and industrial Supplies, etc., maintain a stable market all year round. Statistics from HCPA in the United States for 2016~2018 can be used as a reference, as shown in Figure-9 below.

Japan aerosol related data (from AIAJ and aerosol industry news)

In 2020, due to the impact of the epidemic, the Japanese aerosol market was about 505 million cans, which was a slight decline compared to 2019 (527.31 million cans). Cosmetic aerosols exported to China were also affected due to related regulatory issues. . The Japanese aerosol market is relatively mature, especially personal care (including cosmetics, which fluctuates about 260 million cans throughout the year) aerosols occupy half of the Japanese aerosol market, which can be called a thriving, which is inseparable from the Japanese makeup culture.

2017-2018 Statistics on Aerosols in Japan

In summary, from the 2020 data on aerosols in Europe, America and Japan and the market trends in the past 10 years, as well as the market trends of aerosols in 10 countries around the world from 2010 to 2020, the following conclusions can be drawn:

  1. The aerosol market in developed countries such as Europe, America and Japan is relatively mature, and the output and product structure tend to be stable, and the market fluctuates in a stable range.
  2. The total amount of aerosols in emerging economies in the world is increasing. For example, in China, the total value of aerosol production in 10 years is not less than 1.5 billion cans, indicating that the level of economic development and the level of people’s living consumption have an impact on the aerosols. The development of the aerosol industry has played a strong support and promotion role.
  3. The per capita consumption of aerosols in developed countries in Europe, America and Japan is large, especially in personal care (including cosmetics) and household products.
  4. Consumption and living habits affect market consumption, such as the mature food aerosol market in the United States, but compared to the 70-year food aerosol culture in the United States, the time cost of consumer education is quite large.
  5. The new crown epidemic that began at the end of 2019 has spread to the global economy and has had a considerable impact on the aerosol market, which has affected the consumption, import and export of aerosols, and the iterative upgrade of products to a certain extent.
