Plastic bottles and metal cans will continue to dominate demand, with over 80 percent of the total.
However, faster growth is expected in newer formats such as aluminum bottles, bag-in-box products, aseptic cartons, and pouches. Plastic containers to remain dominant Plastic containers will remain both the largest and fastest growing product segment, with gains supported by increased consumption in the primary outlet for plastic bottles, bottled water, which will become the leading market for beverage containers by However, going forward growth will slow somewhat as environmental concerns lead some consumers to favor filtered tap water or to use reusable bottles for on-the-go consumption.
While the market for plastic bottles in carbonated soft drinks, milk, and juice is essentially mature, plastic is expected to gain ground in other uses including RTD tea, RTD coffee, and larger size alcoholic beverages.
Plastic pouches will also continue to see increased use outside of juice drinks with new introductions in sports drinks, wine, and flavored alcoholic beverages taking advantage of the convenience and low cost of this package format.
In addition, the increased use of metal cans as a packaging option for craft beers has been offset by a trend toward packaging in larger cans.
However, the growing popularity of smaller cans in the carbonated soft drink market, as well as increased can use in growing markets such as wine and sparkling beverages, will help metal cans maintain a sizable market share as producers take advantage of their light weight and recyclability.
Aluminum bottles will also provide opportunities for growth as improved manufacturing processes lower costs and beverage companies look for packages which provide shelf appeal and differentiation. Study coverage This Freedonia industry study analyzes the billion unit US beverage container industry.
