Metal Cans to Remain the Preferred Choice for Paint Packaging, Despite Its High Cost

According to a new study, the global paint cans market will reportedly expand at a moderate CAGR during 2018-2028. While paint cans market will remain a low-volume low-value landscape, revenue expansion has been slated at an average 4% CAGR throughout the projection period.

Paint cans are the most dominant form of paint packaging, across the globe. Over the years, paint cans have been available in a variety of configurations, wherein metal has been the most used material. Until the early 2000s, metal paint cans used to account for more than 90% of the total containers used to store paint. However, plastic and hybrid paint cans started to witness growth in popularity causing a significant shift in consumer preference for plastic paint cans.

To start with, plastic paint cans are lighter than their metal counterparts. Furthermore, plastic paint cans were quickly accepted as they are easy to decorate and could be used as efficient brand advertisement tools. Also, plastic paint cans ensure more consumer convenience.

Stringent Regulations Regarding Plastic Usage May Create New Doors of Opportunities for Effective Re-penetration of Metal Paint Cans

The study shows that despite the growth in market share of plastic paint cans in the initial years, the number of manufacturers of metal paint cans is more than those of plastic paint cans. This is due to the growing awareness regarding the use of plastic products, given their adverse effects on the environment. Metal paint cans are mostly made of steel, out of which, around 25% is recycled steel.

In the coming years, implementation of stringent rules and regulations against the use of plastic are expected to cause stagnation in the plastic cans market. In addition, there are paint packaging solutions other than paint cans made out of plastic such as bottles and pails, which are also available in the market. FMI analysis indicates that despite the above factors, metal cans will continue to be preferred for the next 10-12 years owing to their high recyclability and durability.

Research Scope: Paint Cans Market

The paint cans market has been segmented on the basis of capacity, material type, and product type. By capacity, the paint cans market is segmented as metal and plastic, wherein, further sub-segmentation for plastic and metal was done on the basis of HDPE & PP and steel & tin, respectively. On the basis of capacity, the global paint cans market was segmented as 1000 ml and below, 1001 – 2000 ml, 2001 – 3000 ml, 3001 – 4000 ml, and 4001 ml & above.

On the basis of product type, three key segments are considered in the global paint cans market – metal, plastic, and hybrid cans, wherein, hybrid cans refer to the ones having both metal and plastic components.

High Durability of Paint Cans to be the Key Factor Driving Shifting Preference for Metal

Plastic paint cans lack the rigid build of their metal counterparts. During our analysis, it was found that while plastic industrial pails and cans are widely used, they are not likely to exceed their metal counterparts in terms of performance. Metal paint cans, specifically the ones that are made of steel or tin-plated steel paint cans are designed to be hard wearing. They are known to remain intact in some of the most demanding conditions.

In addition, there are a number of paints which cannot be stored in plastic containers. For instance, some solvent-based paints do not come in plastic paint cans as they can react with the plastic surface causing damage to both the paint and the can.

Emerging countries such as India and China, are expected to be significant contributors to the growth of the global and Asia Pacific market, during the forecast period. In 2018, India was estimated to have accounted for 11.1% of the total global paint cans market, by value. The cumulative emerging countries paint cans market is forecast to expand by 79% of its current value, by the end of 2028.

Europe’s construction industry has been a prime paint consumer and thus, an important market for pain cans manufacturers as well. It is more likely that Europe will represent a collective share of more than 60%, with South & East Asia, in the global paint cans market value estimated for 2019.

Intense Market Competition Projected to Shape Paint Cans Landscape

The intensity of competition is expected to be high in the market, during the forecast period. Currently, very small number of manufacturers of plastic paint cans are present in the market, and there is a very less likelihood of any new entrant in the plastic segment, barring the Tier 3 players. There have been several attempts by top players to work on the design of metal cans as they are not known to be very consumer convenient and are relatively heavier.

Companies such as Crown Holdings are working closely with manufacturers of paint cans to develop and innovate convenient technology for paint cans. Crown came up with their easy lid closure technology, which attempts to ease the handling of specialty packaging products and paint cans.
