Based on the geography, in 2018, North America accounted for the largest revenue share in the global child resistant closure market. The revenue share of North America stood at over 40% in the same year.

For instance, in September 2018, CPSC recalled Desert Harvest’s Relevum Skin Repair Cream which originally came with pump dispensers. After the recall, company replaced the pump dispensers with child resistant twist-off cap. Consequently, we expect that North America will lead the child resistant closure market throughout the forecast period.
