Market Study: Plastic Caps and Closures - Europe (2nd edition)

Introduction

Plastic Caps and Closures Demand in Europe is Driven by Functionality and Convenience

Ceresana has taken the European plastic caps and closure market under the magnifying glass. Push-Pull, Twist-Top, Snip-Tip, or rather Toggle-Swing? The selection of caps and closures is not usually straightforward, and new varieties are constantly being developed. Although inexpensive and standard products are being applied in many sectors, the trend towards more complex closure systems remains unbroken. Above all, more functionality, better technical characteristics, and convenience are in demand, in addition to weight reduction and energy saving during production and recycling.

Plastic Caps and Closures Market Worth Billions

Synthetic wine corks, spray pumps, caps for deodorant rollers, caps for tubes, and other closures are typically only small parts, but are altogether a noticeable growth market: More than 200 billion plastic closures were sold throughout Europe in the past year, 60 billion more than at the start of the decade (Ceresana offers a Global Market Study on Plastic Caps as well). Ceresana expects to see continuous growth at an average rate of 2.3 percent per year until 2017. Revenue from plastic closures in Europe will consequently increase from 1.7 billion Euro to more than 2 billion Euro per year.
Manufacturers of caps and closures, as well as producers of the corresponding machines and suppliers of plastics and additives will primarily profit from an increased use of plastic packaging for foods and drinks. Polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE) are being used increasingly for closures. Significant growth can especially be seen in certain sub-segments of the beverage sector, such as beer, yogurt, milk products, and sports drinks.

Regional Differences

Production and consumption of plastic caps and closures is seeing the strongest growth in Russia, Poland, and Turkey. Manufacturers in Eastern Europe are investing above all in mass production of standardized products, such as screw-caps for PET bottles. In contrast, producers in Western Europe are concentrating, for example, on complex closures systems with seals and built-in dosing devices for medications. Optical characteristics, such as transparency and gloss, especially play an important role in packaging for cosmetics.
