Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst material, the aluminum segment held a prominent share in the market in 2020.”

Based on material, the market is segmented into steel, aluminum, and others. The aluminum segment accounted for a significant share in the global aerosol market. Because of its vast variety of characteristics, aluminum is one of the most used materials for packaging. It’s light, shatterproof, impervious to water, flexible, corrosion-resistant, and recyclable. Aluminum aerosol cans keep the contents fresh for a long period by preventing high volatile ingredients from escaping. Aluminum has a considerable market share in the worldwide aerosol can market due to these considerations.


“Amongst propellant, the liquified gas segment accounted for a considerable share in the global aerosol market

Based on propellant, the market is segmented into liquefied gas propellants and compressed gas propellants. The liquefied gas propellants accounted for a significant share in the market. Even when the product level declines, additional liquefied gas propellant evaporates to maintain constant pressure in the space above the product in the case of liquid gas propellant. This helps to keep the spray’s performance over the life of the aerosol can. This is attributable to the liquefied gas propellant’s significant market share benefits.

“Europe accounted for a major share in the global aerosol market”

For a better understanding of the market adoption of Aerosol, the market is analyzed based on its worldwide presence in the countries such as North America (United States, Canada, Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, UK, France, Italy, Spain, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, Australia, and Rest of APAC), and Rest of World. Europe accounted for a significant share in the global Aerosols market owing to high spending power, high standard of living, and presence of a large number of international FMCG companies which continuously innovate in order to offer better quality products to its customers.
