Growth Drivers
The surging demand for bottled water worldwide is one of the chief driving factors for the global market growth. Bottled water is gaining massive traction among the population and is one of the fastest-growing beverage categories. The changing lifestyles and increasing per capita are the foremost factors propelling the growth of the bottled water sector.

The bottled water manufacturers are more inclined towards selling their products as superior and high-quality, thus, in turn, propelling the demand for the caps & closures. The rise in income levels of the population is accelerating the sales of premium bottled water and encouraging producers to introduce premium bottled water products with appealing capping & closures solutions.

As per the International Bottled Water Association, the escalating population pool of high-net-worth individuals (HNWI) is playing a significant role in influencing the demand for premium bottled water. Moreover, technological developments in packaging solutions also foster the demand for caps and closures. This technology facilitates companies to integrate innovation into products rather than the traditional methods of sticking company’s labels for better product identification.

Therefore, this factor resulted in high investments in the R&D activities for launching technically advanced products with characteristics such as extended shelf life, reusability, better sealing capabilities, and leakage proof. Accordingly, these features proficiently preserve the quality and consistency of the product and boost their shelf life. Hence these factors augment the market growth over the forecast period.
