Drivers & Restraints-
Increasing Demand for Metal Packaging in Varied Industries Foster the Market Growth
Metal packaging has a wide range of usage in many industries such as pharmaceuticals, personal care & cosmetics, food & beverages, and consumer goods. The increasing demand and need for metal packaging from key companies for brand attraction and differentiation among most customers also drive market growth. The surge in demand for alcoholic & non-alcoholic beverages, ready-to-eat, canned food products, and processed food also enhances the market growth.
Steel has very poor chemical stability, low resistance to acid and alkali, and easily prone to rust. The metal ions precipitate if acidic materials such as food products are packed in metal packaging. Metal packaging is more costly than other packaging materials, so the production cost is higher.
North America to Hold the Largest Share Owing to Increasing Demand for Metal Packaging
The largest metal packaging market share is anticipated to be held by North America. The massive reliance on energy drinks and goods canned in the U.S. also contributes to the rising demand for metal packaging in North America.
Asia Pacific led the market growth, followed by North America. The growth is credited due to the rapid expansion of the steel industry in the region over the last 10 years.
China is the biggest steel producer, thus contributing to market growth. Europe is a rapidly-growing region due to the rising use of metal cans consisting of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, the growing household, cosmetics industries, personal care, and processed foods.
