Metal Beverage Cans Market Size

  • The global beverage can market was estimated to be ~398 billion units in 2018 and is expected to grow at the rate of ~3–4 percent CAGR (2018–2023), driven by demand in beer and CSD end-use segments, especially in the emerging regions
  • Increased penetration of metal cans into new segments, such as RTD beverages, water, wines, etc., would contribute to incremental demand
  • Demand for beverage cans would be driven by the increasing consumption in emerging markets of Asia and LATAM, which are expected to grow at a CAGR 4–5 percent and 3–4 percent, respectively, during 2018–2023 –The downstream demand would be driven by CSD (2–3 percent), beer (5–6 percent), and energy drinks (9–10 percent)

 Global Beverage Can Demand by Application

A decline is seen in the CSD segment, which has a CAGR of -1 to 0 percent in the developed regions of NA and EU, which would affect the beverage can demand. However, this slow down is balanced by the growth in consumption of new end-use segments such as RTD beverages, water, FAB's, etc

Market Overview

The North America aluminium cans market has a highly consolidated supply base with top three suppliers having more than 85 percent of the market. Beer is the largest end-use segment having a growth of 2-3 percent CAGR (2018-2023). The industry drivers and constraints for the beverage can market includes Downstream Demand: Changing lifestyles of the consumers and the increasing preference for on the go food and drinks could increase the demand for beverage cans. Product Substitution: Increased use of plastics for CSD and its penetration into beer packaging could deter the demand for metal cans.

There is an increasing demand for specialty cans in both emerging and developed markets Increasing awareness about the sustainability of metal cans and successful “Can Collection Programs” have led to an increase in the recycling rates of cans.
