Global Metal Cans Market to Reach US$ 81.1 Billion by 2032, Fueled by Surging Demand for Sustainable Packaging Solutions

August 24, 2023 | Packaging

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “­Metal Cans Market Report by Material Type (Aluminium, Steel, Tin), Fabrication (Two Piece Metal Can, Three Piece Metal Can), Can Type (Food, Beverages, Aerosols, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global metal cans market size reached US$ 66.4 Billion in 2023. Metal cans are widely used containers made from metal materials, typically aluminum or steel, extensively employed in various industries for packaging and preserving a wide range of products. These cans are manufactured through a process of cutting, forming, and sealing sheets of metal into cylindrical or rectangular shapes, providing a secure and airtight enclosure for food, beverages, chemicals, and other consumer goods. Metal cans offer exceptional properties such as rigidity, durability, and resistance to temperature fluctuations, making them ideal for preserving the freshness and quality of the contents. The versatility of metal cans allows for various sizes and shapes, meeting the diverse packaging needs of different industries. As a result, they are extensively used in the food and beverage (F&B) sector for packaging canned foods, soft drinks, beer, and other beverages. Besides this, metal cans also provide reliable packaging solutions for products such as aerosols, ointments, and creams in the pharmaceutical and personal care industries.

Global Metal Cans Market Trends:

The global metal cans market is mainly driven by the widespread demand for sustainable and efficient packaging solutions across industries. In line with this, the rising demand for environmentally friendly packaging alternatives is prompting businesses and consumers to adopt metal cans due to their high recyclability and material efficiency. Moreover, the introduction of stringent regulations by governments and regulatory bodies encouraging the use of metal packaging as it aligns with their sustainability initiatives and helps reduce the carbon footprint of industries is creating a favorable outlook for market expansion. In addition to this, the bolstering growth of the F&B industry and the growing trend of convenience and on-the-go consumption are propelling the demand for metal cans. Besides this, the surging popularity of canned beverages and foods, such as soft drinks, energy drinks, alcoholic beverages, fruits, vegetables, and ready-to-eat (RTE) meals, due to their ease of transportation and longer shelf life, is acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. Concurrently, the packaging industry's continuous innovation and development of metal cans with enhanced functionalities, such as easy-open features and tamper-evident seals, to meet consumer expectations and improve user experience are contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the expanding product adoption across the pharmaceutical and personal care industries due to the material's protective properties and its ability to maintain the integrity of sensitive contents is aiding in market expansion. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 81.1 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 2.2% during 2024-2032.
