Global Metal Packaging Market to Reach US$ 184.7 Billion by 2027, Propelled by the Increasing Need for Packing Different Food Products

July 12, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Metal Packaging Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global metal packaging market reached US$ 154.0 Billion in 2021. Metal packaging is manufactured using steel and aluminum sheets that provide high barrier properties. It can be shaped by modern production methods and cutting-edge machinery to develop easy-to-open lids, various surface designs, and high solidity and tightness. It is also used in the packaging of paint and chemical materials to form a barrier that is resistant to air, light, and water. In addition, it is resistant to insects and rodents and can be heated and cooled for sterilization. Metal packaging offers several benefits, such as compactness, toughness, high density, malleability, and thermal conductivity. As a result, it finds extensive applications in the packaging of food, beverages, and industrial, personal care and pharmaceutical products.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Metal Packaging Market Trends:

At present, there is a rise in the demand for canned food across the globe as it is a rich source of vitamins, protein, fiber, and minerals, which are essential for a healthy diet. This, along with the expanding food and beverage (F&B) industry, represents one of the key factors driving the market. Moreover, there is an increase in the utilization of metal packaging in the fragrance sector due to its capacity to handle high pressure and durability. This, coupled with the rising traction of luxury products, such as cookies, coffee, tea, and other items, is propelling the growth of the market. In addition, several benefits offered by metal packaging, such as impact resistance, ability to endure extreme temperatures, and convenience for long-distance shipment, are positively influencing the market. Besides this, key market players are extensively investing in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce metal cans with increased functional and storage qualities.
