Tin Can Price Trend

Tin prices reached record high values of 44,284 USD/MT in Febraury 2022 rising by 12% since the previous year due to supply shortages as production is still recovering from the aftermath of Covid-19 pandemic. The demand for tin is robust and is likely to outstrip the supply which will cause its prices to remain high in the upcoming months of 2022. The high prices also affect the downstream tin can market prices. Other factors contributing to the high prices to tin is the surge in energy costs as well as the shutting down of a production facility in China responsible for 25,000 MT of tin output, for maintenance purposes.

With a huge number of domestic enterprises focusing on regional markets, the global metal cans industry is fragmented. To appeal to end-users, the bulk of corporations have negotiated exclusive partnerships with distributors. Some businesses have their own distribution networks, allowing them to increase their revenue by selling products to small businesses.

Vendors have sales and distribution offices in several countries, allowing them to expand their market presence and customer base. Metal cans are becoming more popular in applications like food and beverage packaging. As a result, significant customers of the industry include global beverage firms such as The Coca-Cola Company, PepsiCo, and Red Bull.
