World Caps & Closures

As Quoted In BeverageDaily

Advances will be stimulated in part by an ongoing shift in the product mix toward higher-value closures, such as child-resistant, tamper-evident and dispensing types.

Global demand to rise 4.6% yearly through 2014

World demand for caps and closures is projected to rise 4.6 percent per year to $40 billion in 2014. Advances will be stimulated by growth in global manufacturing output (which will boost packaging requirements), trends toward urbanization and an ongoing shift in the product mix toward higher-value closures, such as child-resistant, tamper-evident and dispensing types. Some of the best opportunities for caps and closures will be found in the Asia/Pacific region, which will account for more than two-fifths of aggregate market value gains between 2009 and 2014.

Beverages to remain largest cap and closure market

Beverages -- beer and carbonated soft drinks in particular -- will remain the main consumers of caps and closures, but more rapid gains are expected in smaller markets such as food and pharmaceuticals. While cap and closure demand in the bottled water segment saw doubledigit annual growth over the 1999-2009 period, advances will decelerate considerably, in large part due to environmental concerns in developed countries.

Cap and closure demand in the food market will benefit from trends toward convenience- oriented packaged food. This will especially boost demand for plastic closures, including dispensing types. However, competition from flexible packaging, such as pouches (which are generally closureless), will prevent faster gains for caps and closures.

Most rapid advances to occur in developing regions

While the US is by far the world’s biggest consumer of caps and closures in value terms (accounting for close to onequarter of global demand in 2009), the most rapid advances will occur in developing regions. Growth in Asia, the Africa/Mideast region, Central and South America, and Eastern Europe will outpace the global average. Industrialization trends and improvements in living standards will fuel demand for caps and closures in these regions’ generally underdeveloped end-user manufacturing industries (e.g., food and beverage processing, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics and toiletries).

China, which is the world’s largest consumer of caps and closures in volume terms, will continue to see some of the fastest growth as advances in personal income levels and consumer expenditures, combined with trends toward urbanization, boost demand for packaged consumer goods. These factors will fuel cap and closure requirements in China, as will increased exports of Chinese goods to more advanced consumer economies (creating the need for higher-quality packaging that meets international standards). India will also see rapid increases in cap and closure demand through 2014, but gains will stem from a much smaller base.

Study Scope

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.
