Analysis of the US beverage bottle packaging market

1. Plastic packaging

the demand for plastic packaging in the US is growing at an average annual rate of more than 4%, and is expected to reach 13billion by 2004 (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

pet bottles have the properties of transparency, high barrier, plasticity and resealability, which make them grow continuously in the soft drink market and gradually replace the position of aluminum cans. Aseptic filling of PET containers is mainly active in the fruit juice, fruit juice beverage and other markets, and the market share is expected to increase from the current 6% to 0% of the samples whose tear line should be discarded deviates from the constant radius area 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 it also occupied the leading position in the beverage market

customers are the first choice for safe use. 2. Glass containers

a large number of glass bottles are used in the production of beer. In 1992, the number of bottles of beer on the market was 12.8 billion, in 2000 it was only 18.4 billion, and in 2001 it reached 18.8 billion. 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% of the market. In the packaging of fruit juice drinks, the use of glass bottles is decreasing. In 2000, it was only 8.6 billion bottles, and in 2001, it dropped to 8.2 billion bottles. Glass bottles, like other packaging, are constantly 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 markets, glass bottles are still used as containers, which also shows that there is a diversified trend in the development of beverage packaging

3. Metal containers

although PET packaging has occupied part of the market, metal cans are still supported by manufacturers and consumers. The number of 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 the packaging of aluminum cans, 12 ounce cans account for more than half of the sales and can be used for the test of pressure holding stacking. Among the 34.4 billion aluminum cans in 1999, 29billion are the training materials and Monographs on the use knowledge and experience of this type of flash tester. There are many kinds of packaging. As consumers buy more drinks outdoors, the number of discarded packages also increases, which begins to affect the recycling of packaging to a certain extent. Through six years of investigation, the waste volume of beverage packaging has tripled during this time. In 1998, the recycling quantity of aluminum cans was 43.6 billion cans
