Metal Can & Container Manufacturing in the US

Over the past five years, the Metal Can and Container Manufacturing industry has been hurt by declining soft drink consumption, a key market for aluminum cans. In addition, substitute canning materials, such as plastics and glass, present a growing challenge to the industry. In the coming years, stagnating per capita alcohol consumption and declining soft drink consumption are anticipated to reduce demand for aluminum cans.

This industry primarily manufactures light metal cans made of aluminum or steel and used as beverage and food containers. Steel shipping barrels, drums, pails and other fabricated steel boxes are also manufactured by this industry and account for a small share of revenue. This industry does not manufacture foil containers or heavy metal 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.
