COVID-19 Analysis

COVID-19 outbreak has led to significant revenue loss for the metal packaging market, given the economic crisis and the ceasing of manufacturing activities. Therefore, the shutdown of processes and activities due to the lockdown has resulted in the demand for packaging plummeting at a rapid speed across the globe, in line with the COVID-19 impact.

However, the balance has been somewhat restored by the industrial customers who have stockpiled intermediate bulk containers as well as drums, leading to a provisional need. Packaging for food and pharmaceutical industries continue to note substantial demand, providing some respite to the market post SARS-CoV-2. The escalating use of corrugated packaging for e-commerce and grocery deliveries can also counterbalance the pandemic induced loss in the market.

APAC, with the fastest expansion rate, is racing ahead on the back of growing number of soft drink manufacturers, and the increasing popularity of aerosol cans in cosmetics, automotive, household care and industrial sectors. Rising use of the latest production technologies combined with the mounting product innovation and launches also buoy the market position in the region. The burgeoning urban population and the escalating disposable income are also instrumental in pushing the demand for canned food products, which translates into substantial growth of the metal packaging market in the region.
