Beverage Containers

US demand for beverage containers will grow 2.4 percent annually through 2012. Gains will be driven a healthy outlook for single serving containers and enhanced or functional beverages. Plastic containers will remain the largest and fastest growing segment. Bottled water will continue to post above-average market gains.

This study analyzes the $22.5 billion US beverage container industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1997, 2002 and 2007, and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by type (e.g., plastic resins, metal, glass, paperboard) and market (e.g., carbonated soft drinks, bottled water, milk, fruit beverages, sports beverages, ready-to-drink tea, beer, wine, distilled spirits).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry participants, including Ball, Rexam and Owens-Illinois.
