$ 1999




The global plastic caps and closure market was worth US$ 35.2 Billion in 2017.  Caps and closures are the final components of the packaging process, they also represent one of the most important parts of the entire process on which the product integrity depends upon. Plastic caps and closures are crucial components in product packaging and play a key role in enhancing the aesthetics and functionality of the products. They are currently used across a number of different industries such as pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, cosmetic products, household goods, etc.

The demand of plastic caps and closures is currently exhibiting strong growth. Plastic caps and closures offer significant advantages over caps and closures made up of other materials such as metal, rubber, etc. Plastic is more economical, versatile, durable, light and resistant to corrosion. Moreover, driven by its lighter weight, it results into a lower transportation cost. PET, PP, HDPE, LDPE, etc. are some of the primary raw materials used in making plastics caps and closures. Beverages currently represent the biggest end use sector for plastic caps and closures. We expect the global beverages market to grow at a CAGR of 3% over the next five years creating a positive impact on the demand of caps and closures. The popularity of plastic in beverage caps and closures has been increasing driven by its cost-effectiveness, durability, customizability and chemical stability. Apart from alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, the demand of plastic caps and closures is also increasing in numerous other end use industries such as chemicals, food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, etc. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 48.3 Billion by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of around 5% during 2018-2023.
