Globalization has resulted in new players entering the cosmetic market scene leading to increased competition. This made survival in the new global business market difficult and arduous. The firm grip enjoyed by the cosmetic manufacturers in the market started waning as customers’ preferences began dominating the cosmetic market and setting the trends in the cosmetic and cosmetic packaging arena. And as the years pass, the preferences and choices of customers continue to change, thus bringing about changes in cosmetic packaging trends as well. The following are the latest trends in cosmetic packaging; these preferences can give cosmetics manufacturers and the cosmetic packaging manufacturers a good understanding of what works and what does not.

Portability On-the-go customers prefer portability more than anything else. Portable says on-the-go which consumers always strive for because it is easy and convenient for them.

Performance Customers prefer packages that are durable and strong enough to protect products from spoiling, leaking, opening or breaking even in adverse conditions.
