The global can coatings market size is prognosticated to reach USD 2.65 billion by 2026, attributable to the rising demand from the food and beverage industry to store products for longer shelf-life. Cans are coated with organic layers to protect the content from chemical reactions between the metal used in the can and the product. This information is provided in a recently published report by Fortune Business Insights™ titled, “Can Coatings Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Epoxy, Acrylic, and Others), By Application (Food Cans, Beverage Cans, Aerosol Cans, and Others) and Regional Forecast, 2019-2026.” According to the report, the market was USD 1.97 billion in 2018 and will exhibit a 3.8% CAGR between 2019 and 2026.

Launch of New Food-can Coatings by PPG Industries to Set High Bars in Market Competition

Nutrishield™ and Nutrishield SOLISTA™- the two internal protective spray coatings for the food-can industry were launched in October 2025 by the PPG Industries for wall-ironed and drawn food cans. This will help solve the problem of food enhancement faced by food manufacturers and thus attract high can coating market revenue in the forthcoming years.

Todd White, the marketing director of PPG Industries, said, “Nutrishield Solista spray coatings have been recognized as the leading new-generation coating solutions by most can coating manufacturers. The enhanced can coatings technology such as high –performance protection, flavor neutrality, Sulphur and packing resistance, and meat-release provided by this spray makes it valid for use in a variety of food packaging.” Such initiatives taken by companies are likely to attract high can coatings market revenue in the coming years.
