Report Description

beverage cans market
beverage cans market


The global beverage cans market is likely to showcase a growth of around 5% during the forecast period. The global beverage industry is comprised of many drinks including carbonated soft drinks, dilutable, juice, sports & energy drinks, still drinks, bottled water, and alcoholic beverage to name a few. To offer these drinks to the final consumer a range of packaging products are used such as PET bottle, metal can, board carton, board bag in box, glass bottle, and polycarbonate bubble top. PET bottle is the most consumed packaging mainly in non-alcoholic beverages. However, changing consumer preferences i.e., increasing demand for non-plastic packaging and improving income are increasing the market for metal cans. Further, recycling plastic is more complex, leads to degradation, and has lower reuse rates than aluminum. According to the industry association’s data, aluminum cans have on average 73% recycled content – 12 times as much as plastic and 3 times as much as glass. Therefore, as global beverage players are taking several steps to reduce the use of plastic, metal cans can play an important role in this transition.
