Caps and Closures Market Scenario


Caps and Closures refer to the dispensing and sealing component of packaging. The caps and closures ensure inflow and outflow of product to/from the packaging product.


Caps & closures play an important role in packaging, and they include containers such as caps, cans, and others. It helps in the process to extend the shelflife of the products and provides a barrier to dirt, moisture, and oxygen. Rising demand for bottled water and smaller packaging sizes from the end-user industries such as food, beverage, and healthcare, and rising concerns toward product quality and safety are factors improving caps & closure market growth. The increasing use of packaging is driving the growth of the caps and closures market.


This reflects the significance of plastic containers in numerous markets and the growing prevalence of plastic closures on other container types. The outlook for plastic closures will be constrained by the alreadyhigh penetration of plastic containers in most markets and a lack of new large volume applications.


Despite ongoing losses due to inroads by plastic closures and the resurgence of aluminum cans in the beer market, units will increase modestly based on greater use of roll-on closures with wine and opportunities for screw and lug closures with ready to drink beverages such as iced tea and coffee, which are frequently packaged in glass.


The global caps & closures market size is anticipated to register a 4.7% CAGR between 2020 and 2027 and reach an approximate value of USD 91,718.9 million in 2027.


Caps and closures have several applications in the food & beverages industry, mainly due to their ease of application, transportation, and reduced costs, as well as the ability to preserve flavor, nutrition, and texture in the long run. Caps and closures help in extending the shelf-life of products along with strengthening brand identity.


The rise in demand for packaged foods & beverages, especially liquid & semi-liquid foods and drinks, is considered one of the major factors inducing the demand for caps and closures. There is an increased demand, which has been met by ensuring increased production of processed and packaged food and beverages across the globe. In Europe, the turnover of the food & beverage industry has gone up along with the emergence of new companies within the processed food and beverages market segment.


Technological advancements in packaging solutions play a vital role in driving the demand for caps and closures. Advanced technology has allowed companies to incorporate innovation in products instead of sticking to traditional ones. Due to this, several companies are investing in research & development and are coming up with technically advanced products with properties such as better sealing capabilities, extended shelf life, leakage proof, and reusability. Such properties effectively uphold the quality and consistency of food items while extending their shelf life without using additional preservatives.


The caps & closures market has become more technology-driven and pulls higher levels of R&D investment. Such investments lead to technology developments, which lead to value addition and the manufacture of premium products at lower costs. This helps them improve their competitive front and creates opportunities for plastic closure manufacturers through an organized infrastructure. Thus, the rapid innovation in packaging solutions is expected to drive the growth of the global caps & closure market during the forecast period.


Developing countries such as India, Brazil, and Indonesia have witnessed changing dynamics for packaged and processed food and beverage demand. The consumption patterns have changed in many years due to positive economic indicators such as the rising per capita disposable income, changing customer preferences, growing working women population, and the increasing number of retail outlets. This is expected to stagger the growth of the packaging industry, including caps and closures used extensively in food and beverage packaging. These countries are adapting smart packaging technologies, which present another opportunity for packaging companies to diversify and enhance their product offerings. A new suite of solutions can help brand owners as they seek to enhance shelf appeal and allow direct consumer interfacing via smartphones and designs that prolong shelf life through the use of temperature monitoring, insulated shipping, and other freshness indicators.


The raw material cost depends on the terms and duration with the resin manufacturers, which typically varies over one year to a couple of years. The availability of raw materials depends on the global and local demand & supply force and government regulations. The price of resin is subject to fluctuations due to external market conditions such as demand-supply forces, import-export scenario, and policies, and regulations. These factors would ultimately affect the raw material cost, which is the cost involved with resins. Also, due to this fluctuation, the financial performance of the company can adversely be affected.
