Manufacture of Metal Containers


The metal packaging sector, which is valued at approximately R5.9bn per annum, accounts for 9.2% of the South African packaging market. Demand for packaging products was subdued in 2018 as a poor economy, joblessness and an increase in VAT, fuel, electricity and other prices put pressure on consumers’ disposable income. The metal packaging sector continues to have the highest recycling rate of all packaging, with almost 76% of all metal packaging in South Africa being recovered.


Volume and Revenue Pressure


Nampak’s metal packaging revenue declined from R11.3bn in 2017 to R11.1bn in 2018 as consumer demand declined and as competitive pressure mounted, although its food canning business recorded sales volumes and profitability increases. While the industry is being affected by economic pressures, the excellent recovery and recycling rate of metal containers place the sector well to benefit from the move to reduce plastic usage, and the sector continues to innovate to take advantage of the trend.
