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

Metal Can & Container Manufacturing in Canada

The Metal Can and Container Manufacturing industry in Canada provides cans and containers to the food and beverage market and to other industrial markets. Operators manufacture cans, typically aluminum, used to package fruits, vegetables, juice, beer and other foods and drinks. Operators also manufacture containers, which are larger and typically steel-based, that are used to store and ship seafood, bird seed, paint, detergent and other industrial products. Despite the popularity of metal cans and containers, an increasing share is being imported from abroad, undercutting this industry's sales. The importing of aluminum cans for food and beverages has been on the rise, undercutting what used to be this industry's largest product segment. In addition, industry operators have been losing out to foreign manufacturers in global markets. Competitive pressure will contribute to falling sales and squeezed profit margins

This industry manufactures light metal cans made of aluminum or steel that are 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.
