Market Study: Plastic Caps and Closures - World

Changing consumer patterns revolutionize the packaging industry. The trend towards on-the-go products, for example, is driving demand for resealable packaging, especially in the food sector. The current, already second study on the world market for plastic caps and closures by Ceresana examines in detail the demand for the different types of closures: screw caps, flip-top closures, disc-top closures, dispensers, spays, lids, and overcaps. In the upcoming eight years, analysts at Ceresana expect – based on the number of units – an increase of worldwide demand for plastic closures by about 3.2% per year.

Screw Caps Dependent on Development of Beverage Segment

“In 2017, screw caps accounted for more than two thirds of the global market for plastic caps and closures,” Ceresana’s CEO Oliver Kutsch says, “Their market share, however, will decrease as competition from other types of closures increases significantly.” The growing demands of consumers are increasing the demand for closures that allow easier handling and accurate dosing of package contents. However, there are major regional differences. For the 19 most important countries, the market study examines the demand separately for each of the different types of plastic closures.

Polypropylene and HDPE Dominate the Market -PET Gains Market Shares

The different requirements for closures within the individual application areas as well as the different designs of the types of closures have an effect on the choice of the respectively used plastics. The study on the worldwide closures market offers separate figures for the plastic types polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (HDPE and LDPE), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), Polystyrene (PS), as well as the aggregate of “other plastics”.

Significant Regional and Country-Specific Differences

In addition to the change in packaging types, for example the trend towards stand-up pouches, other factors are also influencing the demand for plastic closures. Consumer health concerns and government taxes on beverages containing sugar are inhibiting demand for carbonated soft drinks or juices in many countries. In contrast to that, demand for bottled water is likely to continue to account for high growth rates in the upcoming years. However, the individual factors and the resulting market dynamics can vary considerably from region to region. Thus, the market situation of the individual countries is analyzed separately in this study.

The Study in Brief:

Chapter 1 provides a description and analysis of the global market for plastic caps and closures – including forecasts up to 2025. Figures on production and demand are given for each world region. Additionally, the study also contains a distribution of global demand of plastic caps and closures into the plastic types polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (HDPE and LDPE), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polystyrene (PS), as well as the aggregate of “other plastics”.
