Current situation and development trend of beverage packaging market in the United States

plastic containers have gradually occupied the market share of glass and containers in the packaging of beer and fruit juice products. At the same time, because in many countries, glass containers are prohibited from being used in fields, concerts and competition venues, plastic packaging such as pet has developed rapidly and has now occupied an important position on food shelves

the following is an introduction to the current situation and development trend of the beverage packaging market in the United States:

1. Plastic packaging

the demand for plastic packaging in the United States is growing at an average annual rate of more than 4%. It is expected that by 2004, the consumption of plastic packaging will reach 13billion (this data includes all kinds of plastic containers penetrating into glass, paper, metal and other applicable fields). Among them, the small bottle packaging in the soft drink market still needs to grow

the transparent, high barrier, plastic and resealable properties of PET bottles make them grow in the soft drink market and gradually replace the position of aluminum cans. Aseptic filling of PET containers is mainly active in fruit juice, fruit juice drinks and other markets, and the market share is expected to increase from 6% now to 30% in 2004

since pet appeared in the bottled beer market, consumers' demand for it has been expanding. Although it has not had a significant impact on other packaging forms, pet manufacturers' continuous improvement in oxygen barrier and heat resistance has made PET bottles very competitive. In 2002, the number of PET bottles used for beer packaging in the United States was 150million, three times that of 1999. In 2001, the number reached 300million bottles, and also accounted for 5. The experimental steps have taken the leading position in the beverage market

2. Metal containers

although PET packaging has occupied part of the market, metal cans are still supported by manufacturers and consumers. Metal packaged beverages increased from 57.4 billion in 1992 to 67.4 billion in 2000 and 68.1 billion in 2001. However, it is worth noting that in 1998, the maximum number of metal cans on the market reached 69.4 billion, and then there was a downward trend, which indicates that PET packaging has had a partial impact on the market, but it has not had much impact at this stage

in aluminum can packaging, 12 ounce cans account for more than half of the sales. 29billion of the 34.4 billion aluminum cans in 1999 were of this type. 5. Always keep the equipment clean and hygienic; Install. As consumers buy more drinks outdoors, discarded packages are also increasing, which begins to affect the recycling of packaging to a certain extent. Through six years of investigation, the waste of beverage packaging has tripled during this time. In 1998, the number of recycled aluminum cans was 43.6 billion cans

3. Glass containers

a large number of glass bottles are used in the production of beer. In 1992, the number of bottled beer on the market was 12.8 billion bottles, in 2000 it was only 18.4 billion bottles, and in 2001 it reached 18.8 billion bottles. In the field of beer packaging, metal cans have the largest share, but they have increased at a low level in the past eight years; Glass bottles account for about 36%. In the packaging of fruit juice drinks, the use of glass bottles is constantly decreasing, with only 8.6 billion bottles in 2000 and 8.2 billion bottles in 2001. Glass bottles, like other packaging, are constantly being impacted by PET bottles. However, some people believe that from the overall perspective of the beverage market, PET bottles can not occupy all the markets in some aspects, especially in the high-quality soft drinks and beer market, glass bottles are still used as containers, which also shows that there is a diversified trend in the development of beverage packaging
