Global Metal Packaging Market to Reach US$ 128.6 Billion by 2025, Fostered by Rising Environmental Concerns

Published on Apr 17, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Metal Packaging Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025,” the global metal packaging market size reached US$ 108.3 Billion in 2019. Metals are solid materials that are ductile, malleable and offer excellent electrical and thermal conductivity. They are also lightweight and unbreakable, owing to which they act as a versatile and sustainable packaging solution. In the food and beverage (F&B) industry, for instance, they safeguard the products from pathogens, thereby extending their shelf-life and retaining the taste, as well as the nutritional value. Currently, metal packaging is gaining traction around the world due to its minimal impact on the environment as compared to other packaging alternatives.

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:

On account of hectic lifestyles, growing population and inflating income levels, the demand for packaged food products is escalating across the globe. This, in confluence with the burgeoning F&B sector, is strengthening the metal packaging market growth. Besides this, metals are utilized in the packaging of healthcare products in the form of trays, sterilizers, ointment tubes and tablet wrappers. Furthermore, the industry is witnessing the advent of resealable cans that are integrated with a flat opening mechanism, which is made using plastic. These cans can be effortlessly opened and closed with a simple rotating movement. Apart from this, owing to the increasing environmental concerns among individuals, there is a rise in the demand for eco-friendly and sustainable packaging alternatives, which is anticipated to bolster the market growth in the upcoming years. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 128.6 Billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 2.9% during the forecast period (2020-2025).
