Caps & Closures Market – Global Forecast to 2021

The Caps and Closure market is set to rise in the coming years. The demand for raw plastic materials across the globe for commercial and business use is expanding. If the caps and closure market is on the rise you can also expect to see an increase with plastic container bottles, dispensing units and airless packaging.

Global Forecast to 2021


The caps & closures market size is estimated to grow from USD 49.78 billion in 2015 to USD 68.71 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.62%. The caps & closures market is driven by factors such as rising demand from end-use industries such as healthcare, food, and beverage as well as rising concerns toward quality and safety of the product.

Plastic as a raw material is projected to be the fastest-growing segment in the next five years. Plastic caps & closures are made from a wide range of polymers such as polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Plastic caps & closures can be easily formed, are of high quality, are cost-effective, and provide excellent barrier properties and the freedom of design; hence, they are preferred for sealing products.

The Asia-Pacific market is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. It is also projected to have the largest market share due to increasing commercialization and increased demand for packaged goods in the region. The markets of China and India are projected to be lucrative due to their rising middle-class population and rising consumer spending on packaged products.
