Report Description

Metal Cans & PET Bottles Market
Metal Cans & PET Bottles Market

Global Metal Cans & PET Bottles Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 5% during the forecast period. Metal Cans are defined as clean, empty metal containers made of aluminum or tin-plated, or zinc-plated steel, which is commonly used for packaging food, beverages, or other products. Also, metal has a lighter environmental footprint than plastic because metal is easy to recycle and can deteriorate through natural processes. Whereas PET or Polyethylene terephthalate is a strong, stiff synthetic fibre that hails from the family of polymers made with ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid. Almost every plastic water bottle on the planet Earth is made of PET. PET Bottles are the name of a type of clear, strong, lightweight, and 100% recyclable plastic. Factors such as owing to the increasing surge for bottled products coupled with the growing adoption of inorganic growth strategies among key players. Major companies in the market offer metal cans using CO2 for multiple applications within the industry. For instance, in March 2021, Toyochem launched new BPA-NI internal coatings for metal cans based on acrylcic emuslion and polyester resins.

CPMC Holdings Limited; Toyo Seikan Group Holdings, Ltd.; Can-One Berhad; CANPACK; Ball Corporation; Envases Group; universal can Corporation; INTERPACK GROUP; Nampak Ltd., The Cary Company, and Crown and SABIC; Graham Packaging Company.; Berry Global Inc.; HANEX; Toyo Seikan Co., Ltd.; Amcor plc; Ontario Plastic Container Producers Ltd.; Berry Global Inc.; YuHuan Kang-Jia Enterprise Co.,Ltd; and Visy are some of the key players in the market.

“APAC is anticipated to grow at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period”

In 2022, Asia Pacific caters extensive share of the metal can market and is expected to show an influential growth rate in the forecasted period as well. Growing demand for optimum utilization of natural resources has accelerated the trend for recycling activities coupled with government support of favourable policies and partnerships with non-profit agencies are accentuating the market size of metal cans. For instance, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) and the Asia Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate (APP) in the region. Moreover, the rising opportunities for water-based metal packaging coatings are increasing in the country as they have low VOC levels and harmful chemicals, which makes them less toxic and eco-friendly in comparison to solvent-based, and other types of coating. For instance, in July 2020, Actega, based in China, launched a new water-based metal packaging coating for tin cans, aluminum bottles, tubes, or other types of metal packaging used in the food and beverage industry. Furthermore, Japan’s Production of plastic bottles in Japan has jumped to a staggering 23.2 billion per year from 14 billion in 2004, and approximately 2.6 billion bottles are incinerated, sent to landfills, or lost to waterways and oceans annually which raises the urgent adoption of sustainable packaging options.
