Governments around the world tried to limit contact as much as possible by imposing quarantines and lockdowns. These may have been temporary because of their relative ineffectiveness. However, the short and long-term effects that these had on most businesses around the world were far from ineffective. In fact, they, for the most part, were negative. Many businesses around the world were forced to either scale back production or halt operations, at least temporarily. Some businesses were even forced out of business.


The companies in the global beverage cans industry faced the opposite scenario. There was a reason for this. People were staying in more often because of COVID-19 but they still needed to eat. They relied on canned foods and beverages for survival. Hence, demand for beverage cans skyrocketed worldwide. In fact, it’s estimated that COVID-19 actually boosted the beverage cans market growth by as much as 3.1% a year.

Also, aluminum is flexible, lightweight, and easy to mold. These are other factors that are contributing to its growing popularity and overall usage in terms of packaging various beverages and food items.


Opportunities

This type of packaging tends to sell more because it’s more popular with the global masses who are increasingly health-conscious.


Restraints
