The market for aluminium packaging is off to a positive start across the board in 2022.
Tube producers have been observing an increase in order intake in most segments since the fourth quarter, which continued until mid-January. The new year had also started well for suppliers of aerosol cans. Operating rates were very good across the range and "a certain confidence" was returning, insiders told EUWID.
Beverage cans are also buzzing. The sector continues to benefit from the beverage industry's shift away from plastic. In addition, this packaging material is leading the way with "trendy" new product launches.
