Will Cosmetic Packaging Be Plastic Or Glass Bottles In The Future?
Zhejiang Cosme Packaging Co.,Ltd | Updated: Apr 14, 2018

Who is the cosmetic packaging material for the future? Glass or plastic? In recent years, the cosmetics market has been expanding and the cosmetic industry has been growing strongly. The cosmetic packaging market is snowball like snowball. In recent years, the packaging material industry has shown the two dominant position of glass and plastics. In the future, who will master the sinking?

Glass bottles

For a long time, because of its inertness and infiltration characteristics, glass is designed to ensure its composition and maintain its integrity. In the consumer's impression, glass packaging beauty products reflect the quality of products, while glass packaging is the symbol of luxury. As glass is the information that transfers quality, purity and product protection, the glass in the cosmetic packaging industry is in the leading position, especially in the high-end cosmetics market, such as perfume, which is basically in a monopoly position.

But when reporters visited the market, it was found that the prospect of cosmetics packaging market is not optimistic. "From the whole cosmetic packing material industry, the glass bottle has been in the mainstream in recent years. This position may continue for a long time in the future, but the plastic material will gradually replace the glass, but it is an indisputable fact, it will be a slow," said Chen Jun, Vice General Manager of Hua Yu Plastics Co. Slow process, from quantitative to qualitative. In the past, glass accounted for 80% of the market share of cosmetic packaging materials, and other materials and materials accounted for 20%. After a few years, the share of FRP market will probably drop by 50%, and the plastics industry will decrease by 40%, while metal and paper materials will occupy 10% of the market share.

In the short term, glass materials still have the advantages that other materials can not be duplicated, but they also have good handle and texture, but their shortcomings are also outstanding. One of the most serious defects in glass is that the low temperature is very sensitive, and the north and south temperature difference in China, the South cosmetic glass bottle is easy to crack in the north, and many product developers are not willing to use the glass bottle at present.

The strong rise of PET plastics

Whether it is expanding in cosmetics or falling glass materials, the rise of plastic is beyond doubt, Lin Weiguang told reporters, "the original plastic bags are not suitable for materials. Now more and more products are favored and the annual growth rate of the market has doubled. The application of cosmetics packaging materials in plastics will become more and more widespread and will rise rapidly in three years. It should be said that plastic instead of glass is the general trend of cosmetic packaging. In recent years, the rapid development of PET resin in cosmetic packaging materials will accelerate the transformation of plastic materials instead of glass.

It is understood that in recent years, with the continuous demand of the cosmetics market, a large number of new materials have become the new favorite of the packaging market in recent years, of which PET plastic is one of the best. PET is the abbreviation of polybutylene terephthalate. Because it can make up for many defects of glass wood, so it is touted by manufacturers. For example, its quality is lighter than glass, and its transportation cost is low, so it can adapt to the requirement of cold storage in the north. In addition, Chen Jun also told reporters, "PET plastic threshold is not high, production equipment invested hundreds of thousands of yuan, because of the popularization of technology, the production costs of PET bottles are declining, the price of 0.9 yuan glass bottles and PET bottles of 1000ml specifications, and the glass after spraying, the high cost of the grinding process."

The rise of PET plastics is not easy, Lin Weiguang told reporters. "Plastic is a synonym for low-grade products. This impression still exists, but the changes in consciousness are gradually seen from high-end products. Some high-end cosmetics are also starting to use plastic for raw materials, packaging materials, and processes that have been able to be glass bottles. The game. However, there will be a change in this transformation, for example, a temporary shift to the combination of glass and plastic, for example, the form of glass bottles and PET will be a gradual process of transformation.

Although the growth rate of the PET plastic packaging material market is fast, one undeniable fact is that even glass will face many difficulties in the entire cosmetic industry, hot demand, the growth of the packaging market continues to increase, the glass manufacturer's order remains.
