Increasing Demand for Aluminum Beverage Packaging in South America

There has been an improvement in the economic condition of South American countries.

Simultaneously, the demand for aluminum beverage packaging in Paraguay, and surrounding countries, has been rising as more and more people are consuming beer and other refreshing drinks. There has also been increasing awareness about converting to more sustainable, infinitely recyclable beverage cans. The demand for cans in Argentina is expected to grow further and volumes are projected to double from 2016 to 2019.

In November 2017, Ball reported a 5.8% growth in sales in its third-quarter results, owing to a strong demand for cans in Latin America. Can sales of the South American Beverage Packaging Unit increased by 33.6% to $425 million, while segment volumes were up double-digits with mid-single digit growth in Brazil.

Ball Aims to Increase Presence in South America

  • These investments will help Ball expand its presence in the growing beverage can market of Paraguay, Bolivia, and Argentina. Besides, multiple facilities will enable the Company to support varied customer demands with multiple can sizes.
  • Ball's investment in Argentina is the third in two years, indicative of the Company's increasing focus on these markets.
  • The plan at Asunción would commence production in the fourth quarter of 2019, and its capacity is already contracted under long-term agreements.

Carlos Pires, President at the beverage-packaging unit in South America, believes that these investments will help Ball to broaden its geographic reach into a new and growing market. It will also take the Company closer to its customers in the South American area, which aligns with its long-term vision for growth.
