Global Plastic Caps & Closures

This report forecasts to 2024 global demand for plastic caps and closures by product, market, and major world region in units, and shipments by region in nominal US dollars at the manufacturers’ level.

Products are segmented in unit terms by: threaded, unthreaded, dispensing, and child-resistant.

Reported markets encompass: beverages; food; pharmaceuticals; and other markets such as cosmetics and toiletries, household cleaning products, and automotive fluids

Major world regions include North America, Western Europe, Asia/Pacific, and all other regions.

To illustrate historical trends, world, product, market, and regional demand (including product and market segments) are provided for 2009, 2014, and 2019.
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), home canning and bottling 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.

Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
