The Canadian personal care industry has about 350 CPG manufacturing facilities, and only 7 of those employee more than 100 people. But the industry, which includes health and beauty aids, cosmetics, and soap and household cleaners, has grown steadily over the past few years, according to PMMI Business Intelligence’s new report “The Market for Packaging Machinery in Canada 2018.”
With increased Canadian consumer spending, a housing boom, and the trend toward higher end and “natural” products, demand is strong. And even though it is a mature industry, it is likely to grow faster than the economy.
Brand extensions are common, and the overall trend has been to smaller sizes, even if content volume remains the same. Because the category is so varied, it uses a variety of packaging— tubes, rigid and semi-rigid plastic, glass, flexible, and paperboard.
While there are niche products and brands available only in Canada and not the U.S., the basic dynamics of manufacturing and packaging are similar.
