Increased Manufacturing Costs Make Pricing a Key Differentiator for Suppliers in the U.S. Caps and Closures Market

Price competition in some of the commodity type packaging markets such as continuous thread and tamper evident has intensified over the past few years. Increasingly, suppliers have to compete on price in order to build a long-term strategic partnership with their customers. Closure products such as metal crowns have minimal product differentiation and this gives the customer better bargaining powers while determining the supply price. Nonetheless, this has not resulted in a significant dip in prices, since rising raw material and energy prices are adding to the manufacturing costs. Most suppliers have contracts with their customers and the increased raw material costs are being passed on to them. However, energy costs will have to be borne by suppliers, and this eventually impacts their profit margins.

This Frost & Sullivan research service covers the U.S. caps and closures market. The study examines the segmentation by material types and discusses market trends. It also incorporates the top challenges facing the industry and provides strategic recommendations READ MORE >
