Very fine particles of liquid or solid substances suspended in air are called Aerosols. Fog, for example, is a normal aerosol. In aerosol packaging, propellants are responsible for developing proper pressure within the container which provides the driving force to expel the product from the container. The rise in disposable income, rapid urbanization, and increasing health awareness have changed the lifestyle of consumers in developed and developing regions. Owing to the rising demand in numerous personal care applications including skincare, hair care, antiperspirants, deodorants, etc., there is increasing adoption of aerosol propellants. Many organizations are also facilitating the adoption of some eco-friendly aerosol propellants. For example, considering the zero risks toward ozone layer depletion, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has permitted the use of hydrocarbon aerosol propellants. Moreover, the increasing population of aged individuals is expected to boost the aerosol propellant market due to the rising consumption of anti-aging cosmetics containing aerosol propellants. Because of continued adverse effects on health and environment over the years, EPA has imposed several regulations and restrictions on the manufacturing and usage of various aerosol propellants including hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCF), Dimethyl Ether (DME), in turn, limiting the growth of the global aerosol propellant market.

Based on the application, the personal care industry accounted for the biggest share and is anticipated to expand during the forecast period. The rise in health issues and demand for hygiene products, such as infant care, deodorants, skin care, hair care products, and antiperspirants are few factors propelling the growth. Aerosol propellants are used in personal care products, such as antiperspirants, deodorants, and hair sprays. Hence, escalating demand on the global scale is driving the segment growth. High demand for deodorants due to the increasing spending power of consumers is expected to augment the demand from the personal care industry. The household segment also due to increasing applications in stain removers, starch, fabrics and household surfaces, water repellents for leather and fabric, and anti-static sprays and air fresheners, among others. Speedy globalization and growing well-organized retail industry are propelling the demand for these products. Growing awareness regarding hygiene and booming home furnishing market is expected to augment the demand for aerosol propellants in the household application. Also, the rising demand for aerosol propellants in medical uses like inhalers is anticipated to boost the demand and growth of the worldwide aerosol propellant market during the forecast period.

The largest share in the aerosol propellant market belonged to Western Europe and is expected to continue doing so during the forecast period owing to the presence of many established players in the region, such as Akzo Nobel N.V. (Netherlands), Arkema Group (France), Akzo Nobel N.V. (Netherlands), Royal Dutch Shell Plc (Netherlands) and others. Europe’s large share can also be attributed to the vast personal care industry and demand from consumers. Factors including high cosmetics consumption, rapid growth in the fragrance industry, and rise in consumer spending are boosting the regional market growth.
