EU beverage can market 2% growth in 2015

01 April 2016

According to a new report by Beverage Can Makers Europe (BCME), over 64 billion beverage cans were filled in 2015, a 2% increase from 2014. Beer can fillings in Western Europe continued positively showing another year of growth. The Eastern European small decline was tempered by a rise in market share for beverage cans against other pack formats. Soft drinks fillings showed an overall increase of 4.4% compared to 2014, coupled with an increase in pack share for cans. The energy drink category continues to be an important driver for soft drink cans, with the successful addition of larger can formats that complement the traditional 25cl format in this category (Press Release BCME, 8 March 2016).
