Growing Demand for Alcoholic and Non-alcoholic Drinks is Driving Demand for Metal Cans. FMI Forecasts US$ 49.3 Billion Valuation of Metal Can Market by 2034

Due to the increasing consumption of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, such as beer and carbonated drinks, in the European region, there is significant demand for metal cans. The rise in consumer awareness concerning the application of non-carcinogenic materials in packaging and increased demand for lightweight packing is generating high growth prospects for the metal cans market.

NEWARK, Del, March 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global metal can market value is expected to rise from US$ 40.4 billion in 2024 to US$ 49.3 billion by 2034. This market is expected to be driven by a CAGR of 2.0% over the next decade.

Consumer lifestyles are evolving and customers are increasingly seen opting for easy-to-cook food. Individually living consumers and the younger population are especially consuming more canned food as they are budget-constrained and have limited time.

Metal cans are finding significant demand owing to their high recyclability rate. Aluminum cans in particular offer higher extended lives than the other packaging cans. Additionally, these cans offer several benefits like stability, rigidity, and high barrier properties.

“Key players are expanding their capacities to meet the growing demand for canned food and beverages, especially in emerging economies like India where the food industry is booming and attracting investments by leading brands and conglomerates,” says a Senior Consultant Ismail Sutaria in Packaging at Future Market Insights (FMI).
