Metal Cans have been used in industrial packaging since the early 1800s. The first production of metal cans in England started in 1813. Food products such as meat, fruits, oysters, etc were stored in these metal cans in the early years of its adoption. Later the usage of these metal cans was extended to various end-use industries to store a variety of products including beverages. Today, metal cans are used in a wide array of applications to store valuable healthcare products, edible oil, cosmetics, industrial chemicals such as solvents, dyes, paints, etc.

Key Market Driver -

Soaring demand for metal cans in food & beverages industry owing to high recyclability and protection from external contaminants drives the global metal cans market.

Key Market Restraint -

Strong presence of polymeric materials for packaging application restricts the market growth.

Metal Cans are the primary choice of packaging in the food & beverage industry when it comes to prolonging storage, superior protection against external contaminants and high recyclability. These cans can be recycled and reused an infinite number of times and can be manufactured in any desired shape.

However, Metal Cans are relatively costly to their counterpart plastics. Plastics are widely used in food & beverage packaging due to cost benefits. To use the benefits of metals in packaging, plastic packages are often inner lined with metallic foils that save the cost of packaging.
