The global metal packaging market was valued at USD 110.3 billion in 2017, and is expected to reach a value of USD 141.6 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 4.34 %, during the forecast period (2018 - 2023). Metal packaging is the key to sustainable development of human civilization. Metal, being a permanent material retains 100% of its properties even after infinite recycling thereby reducing resource wastage significantly. Metals like aluminum are very easy to sterilize for packaging purposes and its durability and high barrier protection makes it a very good choice for packaging material. These days, most of the can packaging encompasses a traceability technique, making the origin of any product known, thereby making it easier to respond to queries and safety concerns promptly. Plastic packaging market is providing stiff competition to the global metal packaging market. The technological advancements in the packaging industry, like micro packaging, which provides a lighter, more efficient packaging material, and their continuous decrease in cost, is a major constraint for the growth of the market.

High Growth Rate of Food & Beverages, Healthcare, and Consumer Goods Industry

The growing food & beverages market offers a variety of opportunities to the metal packaging market. Major companies are looking towards addition and introducing innovative products to its businesses. The growing advancement and research in the pharmaceutical industry have resulted in the introduction of new drugs, with greater performance compared to their predecessors. Recent improvements in medical science and addition to medicines available for numerous diseases and deficiencies is driving the market, indirectly, as the necessity of packaging the medicines have multiplied rapidly, with time. Pharmaceutical organizations are now outsourcing the job of packaging the end products to organizations skilled and specialized in handling the packaging of medicines.
