The global caps and closures market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.73% to reach US$72.701 billion by 2027, from US$52.609 billion in 2020.

The global caps and closures market derives its demand from other industries such as food and beverage and pharmaceuticals, among others. These industries integrate caps or closures into their own products to avoid contamination and to extend the shelf life of the main product.

The increase in demand for food, alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics coupled with rising incomes and growing health awareness would make this market witness an uptick throughout the forecast period The most commonly used raw material is plastic because it is durable and can be molded into the desired shape. Extensive research and development in developing eco-friendly caps and closures might drive the market’s growth in the long run as plastic is being targeted for infiltrating products with toxic substances. Besides the quality of raw material, the easy-to-handle characteristic is also given importance as it can be a distinguishing feature of the products for customers. Pharmaceutical companies are infusing smart features into their covers to transfer relevant information to consumers.

The global caps and closure industry is growing due to increased reliance on packaged beverages.

The changing lifestyles of people are increasing the sales of closed beverages like energy drinks and alcoholic drinks. The rising working-class population is escalating the demand for on-the-go food products and drinks. This is augmenting the demand for packaged food items and, indirectly, that of the caps and closures market. Caps and closures of alcoholic drinks are a dynamic segment wherein a variety of caps have been invented for different kinds of wines and for the wines to be kept for a different duration. Eco-friendly caps and closures made of wood and paper board are expected to bring radical change and growth to this market.

The global caps and closure market also faces some challenges in terms of the cost of raw materials. The prices of polypropylene, polycarbonate, and aluminum, among others, fluctuate and hamper the seamless growth of this market as output gets affected by costs. Also, flexible packaging solutions act as a substitute for caps and covers, and with growing improvements in this kind of packaging, the market for caps and closures is adversely affected. Many companies are indulging in mergers and acquisitions in this sector to achieve a greater share of this fragmented market. In 2019, Berry Global Group acquired RPC group, which is a plastic product design and engineering company. AR Packaging Group acquired a subsidiary of Nampak Limited in 2019 to establish its existence in Africa.

Geographically, the European region is expected to hold a significant share in the production of caps and closures due to the presence of a large number of companies in that region.

The European region is anticipated to fuel the demand for caps and closures with burgeoning pharmaceutical companies due to rising health issues. The growing popularity of bottled water across the country can drive the demand for more caps to be manufactured. Asia-Pacific region is estimated to grow at a substantial rate throughout the forecast period, largely due to the rising incomes of the people, who in turn are demanding more packaged goods. The booming E-commerce industry in developing countries, such as India, is driving the sales of packaged products through the internet.
