Report Overview

The global can seamers market size was estimated at USD 495.8 million in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.7% from 2020 to 2028. Rising consumer awareness about health and wellness coupled with increasing demand for packaged food and beverage products are projected to drive the market over the forecast period.

Major economies around the globe including the U.S., Germany, France, India, China, and Brazil were largely hit by the pandemic which had resulted in a temporary closure of many industrial facilities in 2020. The economic slowdown caused during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, is expected to hamper the growth of the market.

U.S. can seamers market size, by product, 2018 - 2028 (USD Million)

The market was negatively impacted in the U.S. by the coronavirus outbreak on numerous fronts, including lowered demand and productivity, operational and supply chain disruptions, and potentially tightening credit markets. However, the rising demand for canned food products is expected to create opportunities for can seamers over the forecast period.

Rising awareness regarding sustainability among consumers worldwide has significantly increased in the past few years, which is prompting food and beverage manufacturers and consumer brands to opt for environment-friendly packaging materials. Consequently, aluminum and metal cans are likely to witness significant demand. Thus, the rising demand for metal cans is expected to boost the growth of the can seamer market over the forecast period.

Metals cans are hermetically sealed and provide resistance to irregular handling and transportation. These cans exhibit good shelf life along with high recyclability. Metal cans offer protection to food by providing resistance against exposure to gases, moisture, and light. Thus, the rising demand for canned products is likely to trigger the demand for can seamers over the forecast period.

There are numerous low-cost substitutes for aluminum cans, such as plastic pouches, glass jars, and plastic bottles. Although the consumers are moving toward sustainable and environmental-friendly packaging, the middle- and lower-middle-income groups have largely been adopting the former due to their low-price advantage. These factors are projected to hinder market growth over the forecast period.

Product Insights

The semi-automatic can seamers led the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 51.3% in 2020. Semi-automatic can seamers are usually designed for smaller production volumes, wherein the operator can start the process manually through a footswitch, hand, or touch panel. The machine seals a single can at a time, making it a suitable option for smaller operations or household use.

Compared to an automatic can seamer, a semi-automatic can seamer requires less initial investment capital. For start-up enterprises with less capital, the use of a semi-automatic sealing machine may be preferred. This type of seamer is more suited to be used in cases where frequent adjusting of can size is required to be done manually. High precision, easy adjustment, and low noise are a few advantages of semi-automatic can seamers.

The automatic can seamers segment is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period. Automatic food can seamers have the ability to seam a large number of cans per minute as compared to semi-automatic food can seamers. As automatic can seamers are faster and efficient, they are majorly used for the production of bulk food products, whereas semi-automatic food can seamers are used for small quantity production or in new product development.

The production demand from the food and beverage industry is high due to which the need for a fully automated packaging line is also rising. Large-scale food processing and packaging companies require automatic can seamers to streamline their packaging operations to save on operating expenses and for efficient production.

Application Insights

The beverage application segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 65.7% in 2020. This growth is driven by the increasing consumption of beverages as well as the growing variety of beverage products. Furthermore, there is a rising trend towards healthy beverages which has propelled the demand for packaging machines including can seamers.

Growing population, increasing disposable income, and changing consumer preferences has increased the consumption of beverage products and in turn driving the demand for can seaming machines. Moreover, the growing consumption of natural and organic beverages is further likely to have a positive impact on the market growth.

Global can seamers market share, by application, 2020 (%)

The demand for can seamers in the food industry is expected to witness a CAGR of 4.3% over the forecast period. Factors such as high shelf-life, recyclable packaging, and convenience have boosted the demand for canned food products, thereby, driving cam seamers market growth. The canned food primarily consists of meat products, desserts, seafood, ready meals, pasta and noodles, jams, soups, sauces, pickles, and fruits and vegetables.

Various manufacturers of meat, poultry, and seafood are using cans for packaging as they improve the shelf life of food products as well as aid in keeping the product fresh. The demand for food can seamers is expected to grow over the forecast period due to the rising demand for meat, poultry, and seafood.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific dominated the can seamers market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 37.8% in 2020. The ban on plastics in countries such as India and China is expected to drive the demand for aluminum, paper, and glass cans. Changing lifestyles and food preferences of the middle-income groups have led to increased consumption of processed and packaged food products, which is driving the demand for can seamers.

China is among the world’s largest consumers of food and beverage products. As a result, the country is a favorite destination for investments from foreign brands and players operating in food and beverage industry. Changing consumer dietary habits are expected to propel the demand for packaged and processed food products, thereby, driving the can seamer market in the country.

In Europe, the market is expected to witness a CAGR of 4.1% over the forecast period. The food and beverage industry accounts for a major share in the economy of the region as countries such as Italy, the U.K., and Germany play an important role in shaping its economy. Various multinational food and beverage companies are adopting advanced technologies for efficient production, resulting in increased adoption of can seamers in Europe.

Consumers in the Middle East and Africa prefer consuming nutritional food and quality products. The expansion of the food industry in the Middle East and Africa has been underway for several years. This has resulted in the launch of new and value-added nutritious food products, which is expected to drive the growth of the can seamer market in the region.
