Water soluble packaging is a form of packaging made from biodegradable materials that dissolve in water leaving behind a harmless and non-toxic aqueous solution. Better solubility in water with minimum residue and good impact resistance makes them a favorable packaging material in a number of industries. Water soluble packaging is manufactured in different grades, including cold water soluble PVA grades as well as hot water soluble PVA grades. The global water soluble packaging market, by application, has been segmented into industrial and residential. In 2018, the industrial segment dominated the market with a larger share. Wide scope of application for water soluble packaging in several industries such as food & beverages, chemicals, personal care and cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals is projected to boost the demand for water soluble packaging in the industrial applications


The demand for water soluble packaging has surged in the personal care and cosmetics industry. The personal care and cosmetic product manufacturers are improving their product portfolio and introducing natural as well as organic products to attract new customers. Organic cosmetics are produced with the help of organically farmed ingredients. Such ingredients are cultivated without use of genetically modified organisms (GMO), herbicides, synthetic fertilizers, and other harmful chemicals. Such cosmetics are produced from ingredients that are organically certified by the authorized institutions operating internationally. These cosmetics product manufacturers use the best natural component of plants and flowers, which are good for skin health. As the demand for organic personal care and cosmetics products is rising, manufacturers are looking forward to a sustainable type of packaging solutions such as water soluble pods. For instance, several manufacturers produce personal care products such as shampoo and body wash in the form of water soluble drops, which are organically certified under authorized institutions. Also, cosmetic companies are involving in strategic partnerships with packaging vendors to develop cost-effective and sustainable packaging solutions for their products. Through an effective research and development strategy, manufacturers are diversifying the use of water soluble pods in the packaging of different types of organic cosmetics.
