Aluminium cans are lightweight, strong, affordable, easy to handle, highly resistant to corrosion and provide exceptional barriers against air, light and moisture. 

They are also ideal extenders of product shelf life, offering a perfect canvas for decoration and product branding. 

Owing to these distinctive features, aluminium cans find diverse applications and are used in the packaging of several products, such as soft drinks, oil, chemicals, perfumes, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. 

Besides this, with the growing environmental concerns, consumers are becoming more conscious about limiting the usage of plastics, which has provided a positive thrust to the aluminium cans industry.

Moreover, technological innovations, such as the introduction of BPA-free aluminium cans, have stimulated their usage as a chemical-free packaging for canned food items. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to witness moderate growth during the forecast period (2021-2026).
