8. Market Scale of Tinplate in China

8.1 Market Scale Analysis

8.1.1 Market Scale
At present, over 90% of tinplates are applied into foods, beverages or other package industries. As such, the metal packaging market can directly manifest market application of tinplate in China.

The food industry is the largest user of metal packaging, followed by chemical products, in addition, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals also account for certain proportion.

Metal packaging takes tinplate packaging as primary. With the constant improvement and perfection of tinplate printing and processing technologies, the application of tinplate packaging becomes increasingly wide. With the improvement of tinplate production capacity, the import of tinplate will be reduced gradually, tinplate can realize self-sufficient soon, but parts of high-grade products still need little of importation.

Going through 28 years of reform and open, metal packaging industry has formed the integrated metal package industry system including iron printing and can making, two-piece cans, steel barrels, bottle caps and aerosol cans and become one of important package industry categories. In China, there are over 1,000 metal packaging enterprises above the designated scale and 555 enterprises with certain scale and annual sales for over 5 million, forming the pattern of tripartite confrontation(state-owned enterprises, three-capital enterprises and private enterprises). In recent years, the private enterprises develop rapidly; some of them have grown into enterprise group above the designated scale, seeing from the whole industry, small and medium-sized enterprises account for over 90%, small and dispersed, small and complete pattern still has been resolved radically and industry intensification and integration are still arduous.

According to the statistics from Metal Containers Committee of China Packaging Federation, from 2003 to 2010, the average annual growth rate of sales revenue of metal packaging industry was 17.74%; in 2010, the sales revenue hit CNY 64.3 billion. In 2012, the annual output value of metal packaging industry hit CNY 79.2 billion, increasing by 23% over 2010. In which, the annual output value of beverage cans was CNY 24.6 billion, increasing by 33% over 2010; In 2013, the annual output value of metal packaging industry hit CNY 128 billion; in 2014, this number hit CNY 142 billion. In future, the market development space for metal package products is huge.

With the increase of population and improvement of living standard in China, the demand for tinplate is being enlarged, including the high-grade tinplates used as food cans and beverage cans. In 2011, the consumption amount of tinplate was about CNY 23.3 billion, and this number in 2012-2014 was CNY 25 billion, CNY 30 billion and CNY 34.8 billion respectively.
