•    Europe
•    North America
•    Middle East & Africa
•    South America

North America is Expected to Hold a Major Share in Aluminium Caps and Closure Market:
•    A substantial market share is anticipated in the North American area, which is home to several firms, including Reynold Group Holding Limited, Silgan Holding, Cary Company, O.Berk Company, and Crown Holding, among others.
•    In addition, the food and beverage industry is one of the region's largest users in the demand for aluminium caps and closures. For the preservation of food items, such as seeds, usually contained in glass containers, aluminium caps or seals are often used.

Market Trends

•   More food and beverages are needed to increase population growth and per capita income growth in developed countries. In each end-use vertical, the pace of output for a single commodity and product line-up has risen successively in those countries last year. In the coming years, this reality has tremendous potential to push the market.
•   New brands are joining all the end-use verticals that demand more caps & closures of aluminium for each single packaged unit they make. This, in particular, is driving growth in this market. The quantity of the final packed unit is also reduced in order to maximise the amount of goods sold and eventually lead to the growth of the aluminium caps & closures market, retaining price vs. product offering rivalry among brands.
•   A restraining factor for this market has been plastic substitutes. As the price is smaller, plastic is used for the purpose of cost-cutting. The technical breakthrough in plastics and polymers today makes them environmentally sustainable and health-friendly. For this cause, producers are already favourable to plastics over aluminium and plastic closures have already begun to be introduced.
•   Syrups or powdered drug bottles and injection liquids are the most widely used end-use products in the pharmacy industry. In terms of market share in2018, the pharmaceuticals sector is second, which is about 20.7 percent. Across the projected period, the CAGR is expected to be 5.1 percent.

Market Drivers

As major drivers for aluminium caps and closures, growing demand for convenient food and increased operability serve as essential drivers. To keep the substance new and healthy from dust and other bacteria, a cap plays an imperative role. Consumers are on the lookout for user-friendly, easy to open, and simple to use closures. In different product categories, such as body care, skincare, drinks, and liquid food products, the growing popularity of dispensing closures and pump closures is set to accelerate the growth of the global aluminium caps and closure market.

The movement towards health and fitness is now moving towards preventive healthcare, which increases the market for FMCG goods targeting enhanced lifestyles. Illegal refilling of syrups and soft drinks and their counterfeiting poses a growing challenge and a significant risk to human health, customer trust and welfare in a highly competitive market. In order to educate customers about the quality and authenticity of the goods they are purchasing, caps that avoid leakage, tampering, and counterfeiting are becoming increasingly necessary.

Opportunities

In the next few years, developing countries such as China, India, and Brazil will face strong demand for aluminium caps & closures. Development is largely driven by favourable demographics and an increase in household incomes. When processed food goods eat up a rising share of the consumer's purchases due to changing habits, comfort and hygiene are becoming highly prized attributes. Due to the increasing FMCG industry, other developing economies, such as Mexico, Turkey, South Africa, and Indonesia, are attractive markets for aluminium caps & closures. Through diversifying their product portfolios and expanding their distribution base, cap makers are pursuing ambitious growth strategies in these nations.

Challenges

The per capita intake of aluminium caps & closures is high in developing economies such as the US and Western Europe, leaving further development to be reduced. The increasing trend of healthier beverage consumption by health-conscious customers, including juices and nutritional beverages, has also contributed to a decrease in sales of carbonated soft drinks (CSDs) in a few mature markets. Demand for aluminium caps & closures is related to sales of packaged goods on the retail front. In the last five years, the falling sales of soft beverages have hindered the growth of the soda packaging market, which is the main end consumer. The penetration of packaged product sales in other sectors, such as food and personal care, is high. Due to the interdependence of the growth of the end-use industries, notably in the beverage industry, demand for aluminium caps & closures is relatively lower in developing markets. Although this demand could be powered by improved consumption in the next five years, this presents a problem as the increase in consumption levels is projected to remain modest.
