Aerosol is a colloidal mixture of liquid droplets or solid yet fine particles generally mixed in air or gas. Aerosols can be artificial as well as natural. Natural aerosols include forest exudates, fog, geyser steam, etc. whereas artificial aerosols include dust, haze, smoke, and particulate air pollutants among others. The solid or liquid particles of aerosols have a diameter usually smaller than 1 micrometer (μm) while larger particles have a significant settling speed and make the aerosol a suspension. In general, aerosol refers to a spray that delivers a consumer product and is packed in a can or a similar type of container. Aerosols are widely used as propellants and such propellants deploy compressed or liquefied gas to propel active ingredients in paste, liquid, or powder form inaccurate spray patterns with droplet amounts and sizes controlled. Propellants find wide applications in the manufacture of shaving creams, air fresheners, hair mousse, and antiperspirants/deodorants. Moreover, aerosol propellants are also used in industrial, automobile, and technical applications.

Aerosol Market Growth Factors

Increasing demand for personal care and household products is a key factor expected to boost the demand for aerosols over the forecast period along with rapid urbanization and surge in infrastructural development across the globe. Moreover, increasing developments in emerging economies such as UAE, India, China and Thailand is another major element driving the paints and coatings industry which, in turn, is anticipated to propel the global aerosol demand during the forecast period. Increasing usage of aerosol based products in shoe polish, starch, stain removers, pre-wash sprays as well as water repellents used in fabrics and leather is another key factor fueling the growth of overall global aerosol market. Furthermore, rising demand for aerosol in several food products such as mayonnaise, vinegar, whipped cream, chocolate, ketchup, sparkling water, olive oil, soda and beer will fuel the aerosol industry growth over the forecast period. However, stringent government regulations such as regulation from the European Commission regarding the reduction of green house gas (GHG) emissions along with VOC Paints Directive are some factors expected to hamper the growth of global aerosol market in the near future. In addition, technological advancements including airless dispenser and stahl monoblock are some major elements posing vital opportunities for the global aerosol market.

Aerosol Market Segmentation

The worldwide aerosol market is categorized based on material, type, application, and geography.

Aerosol Market By Material

  • Steel
  • Aluminum
  • Others

According to aerosol industry analysis, the aluminum segment accounted for the largest share of the global aerosol cans market, with a market share of approximately 50%. The report also predicts that the aluminum segment will continue to dominate the market in the coming years due to its growing adoption in the personal care, healthcare, and food industries. Steel is also widely used in the aerosol market, particularly for industrial and automotive applications. However, steel is heavier than aluminum and is not as easily recyclable. As a result, its use has been declining in recent years.

Aerosol Market By Type

  • Bag-In-Valve
  • Standard

The standard aerosol system consists of a can with a valve and a propellant, whereas the BIV system consists of a bag containing the product and a propellant that is placed inside the can. With a market share of approximately 70%, the standard aerosol system accounted for the majority of the global aerosol market. This is because the Standard aerosol system is the most widely used and has been on the market for the longest time. It is also inexpensive, simple to manufacture, and widely available. In contrast, the BIV system has grown in popularity in recent years due to its capacity to provide better protection and a longer shelf life for certain types of products.
