US Homecare Packaging Market Trends

  • Packaging-related problems: Functional issues are more important for consumers than communication issues. It’s clear that problems with dispensing still need ironing out, as over a third of consumers state spilling/dripping when pouring/resealing as an issue with household care packaging.
  • Preferred packaging attributes: Storage space is limited in US homes, as indicated by the fact that over half of consumers want packaging that is easy to store. While this is a leading factor, another important attribute is recyclability. Brands can appeal to consumers’ loyalty by continuing with storage innovation, and making end-of-life homecare packaging processing easier.
  • Most used packaging format: Most US consumers are using all 10 homecare categories tracked by Mintel, and household paper products lead for usage overall. Wipes are also a top-used format, which is also the format with the most attention from regulators. Keeping up with the trend of sustainable packaging such as plant-based alternatives will be important going forward.
