The preference for metal food & beverage containers in the Asia-Pacific region has been increasing rapidly, owing to its range of benefits such as better product protection, durability, sustainability, affordability, light-weight, and more in comparison to other types of packaging. The development of new coating technologies which include Bisphenol A non-intent (BPA-NI) coatings are further fueling the growth of the market in the Asia-Pacific region. Moreover, increasing demand for metal packaging coatings from the pharmaceutical industry are further accelerating the growth of the market in the Asia-Pacific region. Also, strict regulations regarding the use of plastics in various countries across the Asia-Pacific region along with increasing product launches and developments associated with metal packaging is expected to increase the demand for metal packaging coatings for use in various end-use industries over the forecast periodAsia-Pacific metal packaging coatings market size is forecast to reach US$1,990.4 million by 2027, after growing at a CAGR of 7.3% during 2022-2027. 

Eco-friendly metal packaging coatings refer to coatings that are specifically designed to have lower levels of volatile organic chemicals (VOC) and are less toxic to human health. These coatings are primarily used to coat metal containers that store food, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical products, owing to their lower levels of VOC. Moreover, strict environmental regulations are driving metal packaging coating manufacturers in the Asia-Pacific region to adopt environmentally conscious practices, thus, the demand for water-based coatings has increased significantly in the region. Water-based metal packaging coatings have low VOC levels and harmful chemicals, which makes them less toxic and eco-friendly in comparison to solvent-based, and other types of coating. For instance, in July 2020, Actega, based in China, launched a new water-based metal packaging coating for tin cans, aluminum bottles, tubes, or other types of metal packaging used in the food and beverage industry. With this launch, the company aimed at providing safe, environmental-friendly, and reliable solutions to its customers in the highly-regulated markets such as food or beverage packaging in the region. Furthermore, Framework Resolution ResAP (2004) 1 regulates manufacturers in the Asia-Pacific region for the production of metal packaging and flexible packaging coatings. It regulates coatings used for food contact applications under normal or foreseeable conditions of use and states that any coatings should not transfer its constituents to foodstuffs in quantities exceeding 10 mg/dm2 of the surface area of material or article (mg/dm2) (overall migration limit). In June 2021, the Chinese government enforced GB/T safety requirements for hazardous chemicals regulation that restricts the use of BPA in metal packaging coatings which includes food contact packaging, owing to its adverse impact on the environment and human health. Thus, such strict regulations in the Asia-Pacific region is expected to increase the demand and production of eco-friendly water-based coatings for use in several industries in the region as mentioned above. This, in turn, will create opportunities for the growth of the metal packaging coatings market in the Asia-Pacific region in the upcoming years.

China dominated the Asia-Pacific metal packaging coatings market in terms of revenue with a share of 59% in 2021 followed by Japan and India with 11% and 9% respectively. Metal cans & containers offer a range of benefits such as better product protection, durability, sustainability, affordability, light-weight, and more, which makes them ideal for use in the packaging of food and beverage. Metal packaging coatings are mainly used for coating such food & beverage cans and containers in order to protect the metal surface from corrosion, and abrasion, thus, making it more durable. In June 2019, Ball Corporation, a leading supplier of metal packaging technologies, and sustainable packaging solutions for beverage, personal care, and household products, announced its plan to expand its business in India. According to Ball Beverage Packaging (India) Private Ltd, the total production capacity of Ball in India is close to 1.3 billion cans. Ball supplies its beverage cans to multiple companies which include Coca-Cola and PepsiCo, along with numerous beer companies in India. The company has the capacity to produce 250 ml, 350 ml, and 500 ml metal cans in the country. Within the Asia Pacific region, the company produces 6 to 7 different sizes of metal cans which can help increase the local production in order to grow the market. Thus, due to such initiatives the market for metal packaging coatings is anticipated to upsurge in the Asia-Pacific region over the upcoming years.

Governmental Regulations Related to Use of Plastics

Strict governmental regulations in the Asia-Pacific region associated with the use of plastics, owing to its adverse impact on the environment are likely to drive the demand for metal packaging across the region. In April 2021, the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Legislation Register reported the Plastic Reduction Act 2021 (ACT), with the relevant bill having been passed by the ACT Legislative Assembly on March 31, 2021.  The legislation aims at reducing the use of plastic in the ACT, specifically single-use plastic used in soda, water bottles, and other food packaging, by eliminating the supply of identified single-use plastic items. In August 2021, the Government of India launched the Plastic Waste Management Amendment Rules, 2021, which prohibits identified single-use plastic items that have low utility and high littering potential by the end of 2022. Furthermore, in 2020, the Chinese government announced its plan to reduce single-use plastics across the country. As per the plan, plastic bags will be banned across all cities and towns in 2022. The production and sale of plastic bags that are less than 0.025mm thick will also be banned. The restaurant industry is imposed to reduce the use of single-use plastic items by 30%. Hotels have been strictly restricted to offer free single-use plastic items by 2025. Thus, such strict regulations regarding the use of plastics in various countries across the Asia-Pacific region are expected to increase the demand for use of metal packaging in various industries such as food & beverage, pharmaceuticals, and more.
