Metal Can & Container Manufacturing in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Metal Can & Container Manufacturing in Canada

The Metal Can and Container Manufacturing industry provides cans and containers to the food and beverage market and to other industrial markets. Despite the popularity of metal cans and containers, an increasing share is being imported from abroad, undercutting this industry's sales. Revenue has risen slightly due largely to fluctuations in the price of steel inputs and the Canadian dollar. Competitive pressure will contribute to falling sales and squeezed profit margins. As a result, more industry operators will opt to exit the industry instead of prolonging their losses. However, the top players, many of which are globalized and with favourable procurement and distribution networks, will remain in the industry.

This industry manufactures light metal cans made of aluminum or steel and used as beverage and food containers. It also manufactures light metal shipping containers including barrels, drums and pails. This industry does not manufacture heavy metal tanks or nonmetal cans and containers.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
