The carbonated soft drinks (CSD) segment is expected to gain share over the forecast period and accounts for 34.4% in terms of revenue by 2025. The CSD segment is driven by the increasing number of design-conscious beverage producers in the country. Combining customizable innovative credentials with superior performance features, aluminum beverage cans are being manufactured to aesthetically appeal to end consumers.

This regional market is driven by the healthy growth of other application segments, which includes sports and energy drinks.
