In recent years, the metal packaging industry has seen a significant increase in demand for canned food and drinks.
Metal packaging is all around us. Open your fridge or cupboard, and you’ll see items of food and drink enclosed in metal packaging. We rely on it for its ability to keep items fresh and cool.
As a beverage package, they’re a win-win, bringing significant benefits for both brands and consumers. They are also vital to the sustainability value chain.
It’s little surprise, then, that metal packaging is big business. According to market research company ReportLinker, the European Metal Can market is expected to reach US $18.14 billion by 2026.
Metal packaging’s popularity is showing no signs of slowing down: Over the next five years, the global beverage cans market is projected to grow five percent year-on-year, with 100 billion cans produced through 2025.
