Published on Jul 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.
