Cork Manufacturers Looking to Close the Gap on Metal Screw Caps in Wine

James MaddockAnalyst Insight by James Maddock - Packaging Analyst

With global volumes growing year on year from an already sizeable base, wine is an attention-grabbing category for closure manufacturers. The traditional glass bottle remains the clearly dominant pack type in still light grape wine, with over 85% of the product retailed in this pack type globally. Cork is unsurprisingly positioned as the leading closure type for still wine bottled in glass, although metal screw caps are becoming increasingly prevalent. Despite the fact that some cork manufacturers are looking to address the rise of metal, they are unlikely to be able to disrupt the rise of the rival option.

Caps turn the screw

Combined, corks and metal screw closures account for over 99% of all retail still wine sold in glass bottles. While the dominance of these two closure types remained unchallenged over 2008-2013, the  preference among consumers and wine producers alike for the benefits offered by the metal screw cap saw its performance outdo that of cork.

Going Green Unlikely to Significantly Boost Western Europe’s Bottled Water Market

James MaddockAnalyst Insight by James Maddock - Packaging Analyst

Western Europeans love bottled water: in 2013 they drank over 45 billion litres of it. However, while it may be a valuable product to producers and packagers alike, the truth is that growth in per capita consumption rates are expected to slow over the forecast period. Packagers and/or brand owners will be hoping that breakthroughs in eco-friendly packaging will help to arrest this slowdown in demand, but successfully accelerating growth is likely to take more than this.

Growth in demand to slow in Western Europe

In 2013, Western Europe had the highest per capita bottled water consumption of any region, with only North America coming close. This high level of average annual consumption, which stood at approximately 93 litres in 2013, drives demand in the region, a sharp contrast with Asia Pacific. Asia represents a bigger overall market, but demand comes from a far greater number of individuals consuming at about one fifth of the levels that their Western European equivalents do. The bad news for packagers and producers alike is that growth in per capita consumption is expected to slow over 2013-2018, with North America set to overtake Western Europe as the region with the highest consumption rate by the end of the forecast period.
