European aerosol production stagnant in 2015

04 Oct 2016 − 

A total of 5.671bn aerosols were made in Europe last year, roughly the same amount as in 2014 (5.672bn units).

Data from the European industry association FEA (Fédération Européenne des Aérosols) indicates that the market stagnated in 2015 after growing in both 2013 and 2014.

Germany, Europe's second-largest market, registered a downturn in aerosol production to 1.330bn units last year.

The UK still led the way in 2015 with total production of roughly 1.540bn aerosol cans, up from 1.510bn units one year earlier.

Europe's third-biggest producer, France, also elevated its production last year. French companies raised their aerosol output from 703.7m to 749.0m cans, enjoying growth in all filling categories.
