In 2021, extruded plastics accounted for the major market volume and is projected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. Extruded plastic-based cotton swabs have low non-volatile residue (NVR), low particle shedding, and are also chemically resistant. Cotton swabs with the spindle of extruded plastics is used for high recovery in cases where the total organic carbon measurements are employed as an analytical technique. Stringent legislation over the manufacture and sale of plastic-stemmed cotton swabs as a move by the British Government during the ongoing “The Cotton Bud” project has prompted manufacturers to transition towards viable alternatives such as paper and wood. Apart from this, major retail chains such as Sainsbury, Waitrose and Tesco have committed to the removal of their private labels from their shelves to support the ongoing movement against plastic waste.

Domestic use segment to record highest CAGR during the forecast period

In 2021, domestic use dominated the cotton buds application market by volume in 2021 and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. Baby’s skin have diverse features from an adult and therefore requires special care and attention. The baby domestic application segment is projected to grow with a significant CAGR throughout the forecast period. Emerging applications of cotton buds in face paint detailing such as in marking patterns including dots, thin lines and even blending, is another factor stimulating the market growth. Cotton buds are perfect hygienic tools for applying antiseptics and precise cleaning of minor cuts and scrapes. Because of the ability to change the shape of the tip for various applications, cotton buds are extensively desired for cosmetic applications. In medical applications, cotton buds reach areas and crevices that are not possible by conventional methods. Therefore, swab sampling is considered as the most widely used cleaning validation technique. Rising applications of cotton buds in the field of forensics and human genetics for collecting DNA samples by scraping cells from the inner cheek of humans is another significant factor for the market growth.

Rapid demand for cotton buds in North America is projected to catapult the market growth.

North America accounted for the largest share of the cotton buds market. Multiple channels for the sale of cotton buds worldwide is one of the major factor fueling its growth. The U.S. is the second largest producer of cotton bales worldwide after China. Organic cotton usage in buds manufacture is one of the latest inputs from the cotton industry in the U.S. to introduce insecticide/pesticide-free cotton buds in the market. Spending capacity and easy availability of the product across various modes of retail channels are dominant reasons for the high growth of this market in North America. Also, the presence of major manufacturing companies in Canada has boosted the sales of cotton buds in the country.

Unilever is one of the promising players in the cotton buds market.

Unilever is one of the global leaders in packaged consumer goods such as personal care products, frozen foods, tea, etc. In August 2015, Unilever expanded its Q-tips line of products by launching a multi-function electric ear swab. This three-speed vibrating cotton tip is useful for separating up persistent earwax buildup and everyday cleaning. This expansion will help Unilever expand its product portfolio, strengtheningn its market position by theincreasingd local production capacity of electric ear swabs.
