Key Highlights
According to Canadean’s research, carbonates consumption in the US declined during 2007–2012 and this trend is also expected to continue during 2012–2017. This decline is expected to significantly impact the demand for metal cans in the US. Unit sales of metal cans in Carbonates is expected to register a negative CAGR of 4.1% during 2012–2017.

Economic uncertainty and fears related to the recession have made Americans more conscious regarding their expenditure. This has resulted in the decline in demand for premium products with sophisticatedly designed and trendy packaging.

Health concerns and consumers’ desire to avoid certain ingredients will increase the importance of product labels, which will need to clearly display information such as sugar and fat content. Additionally, consumers will increasingly look for “free-from” claims.
