Global Caps & Closures

This report forecasts to 2024 global demand for caps and closures by material, market, and major world region in units. Material segments include: plastic, metal, rubber, and cork. Reported markets encompass: beverages; food; pharmaceuticals; and other markets such as cosmetics and toiletries, household cleaning products, and automotive fluids. World regions include North America, Western Europe, Asia/Pacific, and all other regions.

To illustrate historical trends, world, material, market, and regional demand (including material and market segments) are provided for 2009, 2014, and 2019. Finally, global production in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level is segmented by major world region and provided for 2009, 2014, 2019, and 2024.

Excluded from the scope of this report are: caps and closures that are an integral part of the container (e.g., aerosol can valve assemblies, metal and composite can tops, peel-up aluminum lids); home canning and bottling closures; glass and paperboard closures; closures for industrial bulk containers; flexible closures such as twist ties or foil lidding; and caps and closures used in nonpackaging applications (e.g., valve covers, distributor caps, pen caps, food storage containers lids, liquor decanter closures).

For any given historical year, US dollar amounts are obtained from values expressed in the applicable local currency. These local currency values are converted to US dollars at the average annual exchange rate for that year. For forecast years, the US dollar amounts assume the same annual exchange rate at that prevailing in 2019.
