  • Three-piece cans have several environmental advantages, including a higher recycling rate compared to materials like glass. Metals like aluminum can be recycled without any loss in performance, and recycling aluminum uses about 95% less energy than producing it from raw materials.
  • This makes recycling three-piece cans a strong incentive. The increasing demand for recyclable three-piece cans is expected to create profitable opportunities for market growth. Beverage applications dominate the global three-piece cans market. The segment is expected to witness significant growth on account of the increasing demand for carbonated soft drinks across the globe.
  • The global demand for alcoholic and carbonated drinks is growing rapidly, leading to an increased need for metal cans. In 2022, around 175.8 billion aluminum cans were used worldwide, particularly for beer and soda.
  • The United States has a well-established beverage market, encompassing both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. In 2021, the total beer market in the United States was valued at USD 100.2 billion, with craft beer accounting for USD 26.8 billion (21.0%). The Brewers Association noted a 7.9% increase in craft beer sales, equivalent to approximately 24.5 million barrels. Consequently, there is a notable surge in demand for metal cans in the United States market.
  • COVID-19 drove the market as people switched to storing food or preferring items that were less in contact with other humans, resulting in a higher demand for canned products.

3 Piece Metal Cans Market Trends

Increase in Hygienic Food Consumption Through Canned Foods

  • Canning is a method for preserving food products and providing them with an extended shelf life. It preserves the nutrients of the food and prevents spoilage due to external factors such as sunlight and air.
  • Many fast-food chains and restaurants widely utilize canned food products due to their convenience in cooking and their ability to remain free from contamination and spoilage for a longer period. Since canned fruits are free from contaminants while retaining all their nutritional qualities, they are often used in salads, smoothies, and drinks or consumed directly. The trend of consuming these foods is largely attributed to consumers' preference for hygienic and convenient food products.
  • People with busy lifestyles, especially those lacking cooking skills or experiencing fatigue due to the fast pace of life, find canned foods convenient. Changes in consumer demographics are major factors driving the hygienic foods market. Market sentiments for food and beverages indicate a strong correlation between sales and the degree of convenience and hygiene they offer

This dominance is attributed to growing consumer awareness of environmental sustainability, coupled with significant investments in technological advancements and research and development (R&D) in the area.
  • There is a rising demand for packaged food products, including meat, vegetables, and fruits, leading to a surge in the use of metal cans in the food packaging industry across Asia-Pacific. The metal cans, known for their excellent preservative properties and structural integrity, offer extended shelf life.
  • In 2021, China led the Asia-Pacific metal packaging coatings market with a revenue share of 59%, followed by Japan and India with shares of 11% and 9%, respectively.
