US Caps and Closures Market

http://www.reportlinker.com/p091896/US-Caps-and-Closures-Market.html

US demand to approach 278 billion units by 2012

US demand for caps and closures will increase 5.0 percent annually to $9.7 billion in 2012, representing nearly 278 billion units. Gains will be bolstered by the ongoing shift in the product mix toward such value-added designs as child-resistant closures (CRCs) and dispensing closures, with the latter offering increased convenience and controlled product release in numerous applications. CRC demand will be driven by regulatory requirements issued in 2002 which have expanded the range of products requiring child-resistant packaging. Unit gains will be supported by continuing inroads by closureintensive plastic packaging at the expense of closureless containers like metal cans.

Plastic to remain dominant material utilized

Plastic caps and closures are by far the largest industry segment and will post above-average annual gains through 2012, benefitting from the ongoing supplantation of metal and glass containers by their plastic counterparts in many food and beverage applications. In addition, technological improvements have enabled certain plastic closures to replace metal closures on glass food containers. Moreover, gains will be aided by healthy expansion of synthetic corks in the wine market at the expense of natural corks. Metal cap and closure demand will remain virtually flat as a result of inroads by plastics and declining shipments of beer, the dominant application for metal crowns. However, demand will be fueled by the robust expansion of aluminum beverage bottles, most of which utilize metal closures. Rubber stopper demand will register the fastest gains, spurred by rapid expansion in the pharmaceutical market as a result of growth in the older population segments, which tend to be the heaviest consumers of parenteral and other medications. Demand for paperboard closures will benefit from continued use with premium ice creams.

More Details

Pharmaceutical market will register most rapid gains

Representing 37 percent of the total market in value terms, the beverage industry will continue to offer good prospects for caps and closures based on the rapidly growing bottled water market, the rising proliferation of single-serving drinks in plastic bottles and heightened use of higher-value dispensing closures that enhance convenience and on-the-go consumption. In the milk market, the shift from closureless cartons to plastic bottles for smaller sizes, particularly by schools and major quick-service restaurants, will stimulate related cap and closure demand. However, in fruit beverages, competition from swiftly growing pouches will limit advances somewhat. In addition, overall value gaius will be moderated by the commodity nature of most beverage closures and competition from low-cost imports in beer bottle crowns.

The pharmaceutical market will exhibit the fastest gains of all cap and closure markets, reflecting the shift to an older demographic and the impact of stricter regulations governing the child-resistant, senior-friendly and security properties of pharmaceutical containers. Demand in the cosmetic and toiletry market will be supported by the prevalence of valueadded closures such as custom dispensing configurations, many of which employ a second, protective overcap. In markets such as household and automotive chemicals, below-average growth will stem from market maturity, while better prospects are expected in other markets such as paint.
