Plastic Tubes Market Overview
The plastic tubes market size was worth US$ XX billion in 2020 and is estimated to reach US$ XX billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX % during the forecast period (2021-2028).
Plastic tubes are a crucial component for delivering and packaging various types of pharmaceutical, personal care, and food products. The expanding product portfolio, mainly in the cosmetics industry needs numerous investments for the plastics packaging market.
Toothpaste alone accounts for almost 20 billion tubes annually around the world. The tubes are considered one of the most effective solutions for delivering plastic products. The tubes are available in a single layer, double layer and multi-layer for enhanced protection. The plastic tubes market is available in various materials including HDPE, MDPE, LDPE, polypropylene, ethyl vinyl alcohol polymer, polyamide, polyester and others.
Plastic Tubes Market Dynamics
The global plastic tubes market growth is driven by the demand for eco-friendly plastic packaging solutions, expanding portfolio of cosmetics products globally and increasing e-commerce sales.
Demand for eco-friendly plastic packaging solutions
The plastic tubes market is expected to drive with demand for eco-friendly plastic packaging solutions. The beauty industry creates almost 120 billion units of packaging every year. Packaging is the leading contributor to plastic production in the world. According to Euromonitor International, in 2018, the U.S has used almost 7.9 billion plastic units for beauty and personal care products. Brands are under growing pressure from authorities and consumers to improve the environmental profile of the packaging. As a result, various companies have begun to restructure their packaging business with the 3 R'S pillars- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
The companies are now focusing on manufacturing eco-friendly plastic tubes and replace them with their existing packaging tubes. For instance, in 2021- Lauren Tubes has introduced a mono-material tube made of recyclable Polyethylene (PE). The tubes are available in numerous lengths and diameters and with screw and flip-top caps made of HDPE and the entire tube can be recycled as a single unit.
Presence of alternatives in the market
The presence of alternatives is responsible for restraining the plastic tubes market. With increasing demand and interest in the packaging, there are various options available in the market which could hamper the demand for plastic tubes. Some of the most common tubes are aluminium and laminated tubes.
Laminated tubes are a hybrid of plastic tubes and aluminium tubes. They efficiently protect contents due to their many overlaid layers, including the barrier layer. Various leading companies have shifted from aluminium or plastic to laminated plastic tubes because of their combined features, such as excellent printability and extra safety. These scenarios are expected to hamper the market demand in the forecst period.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis
Due to the pandemic, stakeholders across the plastic tubes industry have seen a notable impact as all the production work, factories and other activities were closed. As a result, production was hindered by halts and supply chain disruption globally. Furthermore, after the pandemic, the governments still impose various restrictions, such as working with half the workforce and fewer operating hours hindering the production cycle of the market. With the outbreak of COVID-19, several beauty-product outlets were shut down and new openings are likely to be delayed for at least a year. Consumers are spending less than usual, which will negatively impact the plastic packaging industry. For instance, the global beauty industry revenues had fall 20 to 30% in 2020.
At the same time, laminated tubes have not been affected in various regions with the covid-19 outbreak. According to the European Tube Manufacturers Association (ETMA), the tube industry was extremely robust in 2020 despite all the challenges on global markets during the Covid-19 pandemic. During the crisis of 2020, almost 11.5 billion tubes were made of plastic, laminated and aluminium material due to keen demand.
Plastic Tubes Market Segment Analysis
By material, the plastic tubes market is broadly classified into LDPE, HDPE, Polyamide, Polyester and others.
The HDPE plastic tubes are expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2021-2028)
The HDPE tubes are expected to hold the largest market for plastic tubes market and are expected to continue their dominance in the forecast period. HDPE is a Type 2 plastic used in making tubes for health care, oral care, shampoos & conditioners and other products. Traditionally, majority of the toothpaste tubes are made from a combination of aluminium and plastic, which gives flexibility in packaging but also makes it difficult for recycling. Instead of aluminium, now High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is used to manufacture tubes, which is one of the widely recyclable plastics globally.
The companies are launching HDPE tubes with the thinnest plastic material available for the toothpaste market to reduce the amount of plastic needed for each tube. In 2021- Unilever's oral care brands, including Pepsodent, Signal and Closeup, have announced plans to convert their global toothpaste portfolio to recyclable HDPE tubes with 220 microns thickness by 2025.
Moreover, in 2020, Henkel announced to gradually covert its oral care tube portfolio to Greenleaf recyclable HDPE tube. The German giant aims to achieve 100% packaging recyclability by 2025. The company is now shifting more than 700 tons of packaging material every year to be recovered by existing waste recycling streams.
