US demand for caps and closures will rise four percent annually through 2014. Advances will be aided by greater use of more costly dispensing and child-resistant closures, and by the ongoing popularity of single-serving containers. Plastic will remain the dominant material, while elastomer and rubber stoppers grow the fastest.
This study analyzes the $7.8 billion US cap and closure industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by raw material, product type (e.g., threaded, dispensing, unthreaded, child-resistant, screw and lug, crowns, roll-ons, elastomer and rubber, cork) and market.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 31 industry players, including Rexam, AptarGroup and Berry Plastics.
