Plastic Caps & Closures Market

2019 Analysis and Review of Plastic Caps & Closures Market by Cap Type - Screw Closures, Snap Closures, and Push-Pull Closures for 2019 - 2029

Thermoplastics Remain Preferred Material

Carrying the benefits of low processing cost as well as light-weight and high rigidity quotient, plastics caps & closures made from thermoplastics continue to define manufacturers’ bottom lines. By 2026, consumption of thermoplastics caps & closures is likely to surpass US$ 50 Bn.

As they capture voluminous share of the worldwide sales, market players are focusing on this product category. Under thermoplastics material, polypropylene (PP) will lead the pack, while polyethylene (PE) - LDPE and HDPE - are witnessing rapid demand growth. Further, thermosets are seeing decreasing share in market revenues as they cannot be recycled and exhibit poor thermal conductivity.

APEJ’s Market Remain Lucrative through 2029

Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) continues to lead the global plastic cups & closures markets, both, in terms of growth rate and revenue share. While the flourishing food & beverage sector has been the conventional driver for market growth, emergence of pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries is also contributing to the market revenues in the region.
