Beverage Packaging Market

2019 Analysis and Review of Beverage Packaging Market by Application - Alcoholic Drinks, Non-Alcoholic for 2019 - 2027

Heavy Investments by Beverage Giants in Asia Pacific to Propel Market Growth

The Asia Pacific region is a significant contributor to the global beverage packaging market. China and India are expected to spearhead the Asia Pacific beverage packaging market growth over the forecast period. Countries in the Asia Pacific region, such as India, have witnessed rapid penetration of modern retail outlets, especially in the urban areas. Easy access to hypermarkets and supermarkets has enabled an increase in the consumption of beverages such as soft drinks as well as alcoholic beverages in the beverage packaging market.

This has enabled beverage giants such as PepsiCo and The Coca-Cola Company to invest heavily in the areas of production, enhancing their manufacturing capacity, and improving their supply chain, all of which have led to increasing demand for beverage packaging solutions in these regions. The increase in per-capita incomes of consumers in the region has facilitated the exponential growth of the beverage packaging market in the Asia Pacific region.

Growing Adoption of on-the-go Lifestyle among Consumers to Increase Preference for Beverage Cans

FMI reports an increasing demand for smaller packs, which creates opportunities for growth in demand for beverage packaging, especially cans. Moreover, the increasing trend of on the go food consumption is expected to present opportunities for the growth of the glass and metal beverage packaging market.

Furthermore, bottled water is one of the few packaged beverages which has witnessed a rapid growth in terms of consumption. Manufacturers have been quick to capitalize on this trend and have been investing substantially in enhancing the output of their production lines to cater to this growing demand in the beverage packaging market. Key factors responsible for the growth of bottled water consumption in the beverage packaging market are the bad quality of tap water available in some areas and increased tax on sugary drinks.

A rise in sugar drink tax has led to a decrease in consumption of carbonated drinks, and catapulted the demand for bottled water in the beverage packaging market. This trend is expected to continue over the forecast period, with more consumers, especially from strong middle-income households opting for bottled water. Thus, manufacturers can gain lucrative opportunities by focusing on the bottled water segment in the beverage packaging market.

Increase in Geriatric Population Leading to Decline in Sales of Beverage Packaging for Alcohol

Countries such as Japan has a shrinking young population (between ages of 18-35 ) and aged consumers (over 60 years) account for more than 1/4th of the population in Japan. This has resulted in declining soft drinks sales in the country, which might affect the growth of beverage packaging market over the forecast period.
