Driving Factors

The increasing demand for caps and closures is closely related to growing urbanization. Urban consumers prefer convenient and on-the-go packaging solutions for food and beverage products. Caps and closures play an important role in providing convenience by ensuring that products are simple to open and close and that they can be consumed without spilling. Caps and closures provide an airtight seal, preventing bacteria from entering and keeping the product fresh for a longer period of time. They address the growing concern about food and beverage product safety and hygiene by preventing spoilage. Manufacturers also provide various customization options that are more appropriate for the product, which helps retain customers and expand their market globally. Furthermore, According to the International Bottled Water Association, the growing population of high-net-worth people (HNWI) is a major factor influencing bottled water premiumization. Such people prefer high-priced bottled water to regular bottled water. The consumer enthusiasm for products perceived as a healthier alternative to other beverages is driving demand for bottled water and, eventually, caps and closures.


Restraining Factors

The increased use of packages without seals, such as pouches and blister packages, harms the growth of the caps and closures market. These types of packaging provide numerous advantages to the packager, including lower material costs compared to traditional rigid packaging methods and concerns about sustainability. Another food and beverage packaging option is the pouch packaging format, which is being used by a number of FMCG companies as a packaging innovation tool to provide more convenience to consumers. Several new easy-open and easy-reclose options are being added to the vast array of design options available in all applications.
