Market Drivers

Increasing Demand for Carbonated Drinks will Propel Market 

Rapid modernization and urbanization and the rising popularity of on-the-go food and drinks have propelled the beverage packaging market growth. Ban on the use of plastic and the current trend of using bio-degradable packaging products has increased the demand for other beverage packaging products such as metal cans, glass bottles, and others, thereby boosting the market. Furthermore, the increasing tax imposed on sugar drinks has propelled the demand for carbonated drinks, ultimately driving the market for beverage packaging.

However, the high price of materials such as glass and metals used for making beverage packaging products may cause the market to face rough waters. Nevertheless, the use of recyclable aluminum cans for packaging liquids are expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for the market in the long run. 

Regional Segmentation: 

Asia Pacific, followed by North America will Dominate Market with Large Production Units 

Based on geographical segmentation, Asia Pacific is holding the dominant beverage packaging market share on account of the rapid urbanization demanding packaged beverage products and significant support from emerging economies such as India, Malaysia, Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand, and China. On the other side, the ban on plastic by many countries such as Japan, India, China, and South Korea has propelled the demand for other packaging materials such as non-degradable bags, glass bottles, and others. Despite this ban, Asia Pacific will continue to dominate the market in the coming years.

On the other side, the markets in Europe, North America, and other regions will also witness significant growth in the coming years, with North America holding the second position in the market. This growth is attributed to the increasing use of bottled water, dairy products, energy drinks, juice, spirit and wine, and other beverage products, and a large number of production of packaging materials for beverage items.  

Competitive Landscape:

Expansion of Geographical Presence will Help Earn High Revenue

Major beverage packaging market manufacturers are engaging in company collaboration, mergers and acquisitions, and joint ventures for expanding their product portfolio into various geographies.
