Cosmetic packaging is important in the marketing of various cosmetics items since it attracts the attention of the buyer. To make the packaging appealing, different graphical and packaging designs are essential. This refers to both primary and secondary packing. Paper and board-based packaging is commonly used for secondary packaging due to its ease of processing and ability to be customized to meet specific needs.

Furthermore, the market is expected to be driven by rising demand for cosmetics as a result of changing grooming habits across both genders during the forecast period. For the sale of cosmetics, producers rely on significant advertising through various media. Packaging innovation is a vital aspect in attracting customers, and it will have an impact on the packaging industry’s overall growth in the next years.

Furthermore, because of rising disposable money and changing lifestyles, emerging economies such as China and Japan are presenting a great chance for the cosmetic sector to grow. As a result, rising cosmetics demand has a direct impact on the market for this industry, boosting the market expansion over the predicted period.
