World demand for caps and closures will rise 4.6 percent annually through 2014. Growth will be based in part by a shift toward higher-value closures such as child-resistant, tamper-evident and dispensing types. Some of the best opportunities will be found in the Asia/Pacific region, where over two-fifths of market gains will occur.
This study analyzes the $32 billion world cap and closure industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by material (plastic, metal, rubber, cork), market (e.g., beer, carbonated soft drinks, bottled water, food, pharmaceuticals), world region and for 18 countries.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 40 industry participants, including AptarGroup, Rexam and Reynolds Group.
