About This Report


Over the past five years, the Metal Can and Container Manufacturing industry has endured challenges to profitability posed by volatile aluminum prices and increased competition. Because industry operators are typically able to pass input price increases on to customers, falling aluminum prices in recent years have reduced revenue, while the rising viability of plastics as an alternative to industry products has increased competitive pressure. This dynamic has increased consolidation in the industry, as many small companies have been unable to compete in this environment. Although acquisitions by larger players have stabilized average industry profit, revenue growth will remain sluggish in the next five years due to declining consumption of beer and soft drinks, two key markets for industry manufacturers.

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 operator revenue. This industry does not manufacture foil containers or heavy metal containers.

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