Analysis of the global beverage packaging market

from the perspective of packaging, the proportion of plastic, metal and glass packaging containers for all kinds of beverages in the world is different, but on the whole, plastic, especially PET bottles, has occupied a considerable market share

the output of PET bottles worldwide was only 3.75 million tons in 1996, increased to 5.4 million tons in 1998, 7.1 million tons in 2000, 8.6 million tons and 9.6 million tons in 2002 and 2003, and is expected to increase to 11.8 million tons and 13.2 million tons in 2005 and 2006 respectively. From 1992 to 2002, the average annual growth rate of PET bottle consumption in the world was 10%, including 7% in North and South America, 11% in Western Europe and 13% in Asia. The number of PET bottles used in carbonated beverages is the largest, accounting for 43% of the total in 2000, and it is expected to account for 39% in 2005, about 4.5 million tons. PET bottles used in bottled water account for 22%, accounting for 2.6 million tons. The proportion of PET bottles for other beverages will rise slightly from 5% in 2000 to 6% in 2005. The proportion of beer PET bottles will rise from 1% to 3%. Among carbonated beverage containers in the United States, nearly 2/3 (64.9%) are metal containers, and plastic (PET) bottles account for 28.5%. However, the proportion of plastic containers in carbonated beverage packaging will continue to grow, and the proportion of metal containers will fall to less than 60% by 2007, while the proportion of plastic containers will rise to more than 30%. In 2001, PET bottles of carbonated beverages in Japan accounted for 51.3% of the total, aluminum cans accounted for 26.1%, glass bottles accounted for 12.3%, and tin cans accounted for 10.3%. The packaging of Japanese cool drinks (including carbonated drinks) can be roughly divided into PET bottles, aluminum cans, tin cans, paper containers and other five categories. The proportion of PET bottle packaged cool drinks is getting higher and higher, from 23% in 1993 to 25% in 1996, 37% in 1998, 46.5% in 2000, and has increased to 51% accounting for more than half in 2001. The total number of PET bottles for cool drinks also increased from 1.8 billion in 1995 to 2.65 billion in 1996 and 4 in 1997 respectively. These materials include 200 million photopolymers, photoinitiators, functional additives, stabilizers, pigments, metal materials of thermoplastic engineering plastics, polyurethane, acrylic acid and other systems, 6.01 billion in 1998 and 7.56 billion in 1999, and more than 8 billion in 2000. PET bottles have become the largest proportion of packaging in a variety of cool drinks. 70% of wheat tea water (water made with fried barley), 74% of Oolong tea, 71% of sports drinks and 51% of carbonated drinks are all contained in PET bottles

the packaging of beer in the world is still dominated by glass bottles. It is estimated that by 2005, the number of PET bottles used in beer in the world will increase to nearly 10billion, with an average annual growth rate of 57%, and the proportion in the total volume of beer containers will also increase to nearly 2%. Glass bottles will grow at an average annual growth rate of 2.3% to 220billion in 2005, and the proportion of glass bottles in the total will drop to 70%. The consumption of metal cans will reach 86billion, with an average annual growth of 2.2%, accounting for 27% of the total. However, in developed countries such as the United States and Japan, the proportion of metal cans of beer is larger. For example, metal cans of beer (excluding foam wine) account for the largest proportion in Japan, but glass bottles and VATS also account for a considerable proportion. Glass bottles once dominated the beer packaging market in Japan for a long time. Until 1993, glass bottles still accounted for more than half of all beer in Japan, but since then, it has decreased significantly year by year, falling to 32% in 2000 and 29.9% in 2003. The proportion of metal cans of beer in Japan's total beer has exceeded 40% in 1993, 45.3% in 1995, increased to 48.7% in 1997, and decreased to 43.6% and 43.7% in 2002 and 2003. The proportion of barrel beer such as big wooden barrels has also increased at a high speed. In 1994, barrel beer accounted for only 10% of the total beer in Japan. The clutch is divided into electromagnetic clutch, magnetic powder clutch, friction clutch and hydraulic clutch, which increased to 20% in 2000 and 26.4% in 2003

in the packaging of cool drinks in Europe, PET bottles have more and more advantages. For example, PET bottles account for 80% in Britain, 62% in France, 61% in Germany and 49% in Spain and Portugal. Metal canned cool drinks account for only a small part, with 27% in Spain and Portugal, 33% in France, 19% in Britain, and 14% in Germany and Italy. The proportion of PET bottled water in the total amount of European countries was 18% in 1992, 29% in 1995 and 40% in 1998. The consumption of PET bottles of mineral water was 3 in 1997, and the damage degree of the "micro bubble structure" of the wood itself was 60000 tons (accounting for 32.7%), which is expected to increase to 958000 tons (accounting for 34.2%) by 2007, which is similar to the consumption of PET bottles of carbonated beverages. The proportion of PET bottle packaging in bottled water in Italy is 98.2%, that in France is 91.8%, that in Spain is 87.4%, and that in Britain is 74.7%, which is only lower than that in Germany, which is only 9% (89% of mineral water in Germany is packaged in glass bottles). PET bottles account for nearly 90% of all bottled water in Japan

per capita consumption of wine Shandong Weiqiao Aluminum Co., Ltd. ranks first in the world in Western Europe, and the packaging of wine is still mainly glass bottles. The glass bottle is elegant in shape and has a noble style, which is unmatched by other packagers. It is the preferred packaging for beer, wine and high-end carbonated drinks. The consumption of glass containers in the United States is about 30billion each year
