Light metal containers are commonly used to pack beverages and food. Consumers' preference for convenient impulse purchases has been promoting growth in packaging markets. Packaging is used to protect, preserve and distribute goods while giving brand owners an opportunity to promote their products. Light metal packaging is particularly dominant in beverage markets where volumes are very high. Manufacturers of light metal packaging compete with alternative packaging made from plastic and glass, and must innovate continually to lower their costs and minimise the environmental footprint of their products.
Operators in the industry manufacture metal tins, cans, collapsible tubes and boxes. These are used to store food and drink.
