About the Caps and Closures Conference 2014
Scouting the future of Caps and Closures
There have been a number of new innovations for plastic closures in the last two years, with more resistant, technologically advanced lightweight caps providing greater potential for energy reduction and material savings. Lightweight packaging in general has been a strong trend in the beverage industry, as suppliers continue to strive to develop products which satisfy both environment and cost concerns.
According to a report, plastic closures (49%) overtook metal closures (48%) last year, gaining the largest share of the global market for beverage closures. In comparison, metal closures held 51% of the market in 2007. The advance of plastic closures is primarily associated with a shift towards more innovative, lightweight, cost saving packaging.
Innovation in plastic closures continues to be of growing interest, holding great potential for development in the future. As a result, the gap between plastic and metal closures is expected to widen, with 52% of the market expected to be held by plastic closures in 2017.
Caps and Closures 2014 offers a unique networking opportunity for leading brand owners and fillers, closures producers, packaging manufacturers, designers and suppliers to the industry to debate the latest developments in the plastics closures industry with a particular focus on adding value and optimising results across the supply chain.
