Aluminium represents a very popular material for packaging purposes. Aluminium cans exhibit substantial benefits over other containers. They are light-weight, recyclable, easy to handle, cool down quickly and protect the flavour and integrity of the contents. As they are non-toxic in nature and extend the product’s shelf life, they are widely used across a number of industries. According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the global aluminium cans market reached a volume of 278 Billion cans in 2015 and is expected to reach a volume of around 323 Billion cans by 2021.

Increasing population, rising disposable incomes of consumers, urban lifestyles and growing demand from the food and beverage industry, particularly in emerging markets are some of the factors driving the growth of the global aluminium cans market. Manufacturers are also undertaking initiatives to produce environment-friendly cans by improving their recycling rate. Moreover, technological developments and innovations have led to the manufacturing of easy-open lids, resealable cans and smart packaging solutions such as self-heating cans, which in turn, are broadening the scope of this market.
