  • Another crucial trend concerning the market involves, innovations in R&D sector. For instance, numerous researches have been conducted in order to manufacture safer substitutes of the BPA cans which will reduce the health problems associated with the chronic exposure to the BPA cans.

Introductory Overview

BPA, Bisphenol A is an industrial chemical which has wide array of applications in many commercial products, including food containers and hygiene products. It is an important chemical material used in epoxy resins and polycarbonate plastic cans. This chemical is primarily used as coating in can linings. However, associated health issues concerning the use of BPA cans, have led to a gradual shift toward the adoption of non-BPA cans.

Market Size and Forecast

The global demand for the BPA cans are increasing on account of its increasing applications in food and beverage industry. On the other hand, rising consumer awareness in tandem with the stringent government regulations pertaining to the use of BPA cans are also some of the major factors anticipated to propel the market growth over the forecast period. Over the years, the manufacturing of the BPA cans has witnessed a significant decrease. As per the Can Manufacturers Institution (CMI) survey, including can lining and can makers companies, at least 90% of cans have already been replaced which initially contained BPA linings as of the current scenario. Nowadays, food linings are primarily made of polyester and acrylic. According to the survey results, it has also been confirmed that these materials are extensively tested and before being sold in the market are assessed by the regulatory agencies.
