Well-Established Market Report: Second Ceresana Study on the European Market for Plastic Caps and Closures
Stand-Up Pouches with Closures
Plastic caps and closures increasingly capture the market for flexible packaging. Stand-up pouches are light, handy, save raw materials, and can be designed and printed versatilely. At the beginning, they were lacking practical pouring facility and they could not be re-closed. By now, numerous suitable spout stand-up pouches with integrated and resealable spouts are available for liquids, viscous materials, creams, and other applications. Due to the small size of these closures, manufacturers already have to meet different requirements than for traditional bottle caps.
Light and Handy
Suppliers of plastic caps and closures profit substantially from an increasing use of rigid packaging made of plastics, of PET-based disposable bottles in particular. Important growth factors are the rising demand for bottled water as well as the increasing consumption of smaller packages. More complex closures such as dispenser systems or tamper-proof caps are used more often. Rigid containers and tubes made of plastics significantly gain importance in the food, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical industries. Often, this increase occurs at the expense of glass or metal containers: Plastic containers are usually combined with a plastic closure. Rigid plastic containers are increasingly used for beer, liquid food such as sauces or spreads, or particularly for ready-made meals for on-the-go consumption.
