More winemakers turn to aluminium closures

New research shows the global wine market shifting towards aluminium closures

Aluminium closures now account for just under 30% of the total global bottled still wine market, according to research recently conducted by Euromonitor. With 30 billion bottles sold worldwide in 2016, the aluminium closure market size is now around 9 billion units annually. This shift towards aluminium screwcaps is particularly evident for the largest still wine markets – Europe and USA.

Europe still represents the largest market for bottled still wines with volumes of more than 17 billion in 2016, according to other research by IWSR, which looked at 0.75L equivalent bottle measurement units. Both reports show a decline in bottled still wine volumes in Europe of between 5.3 and 6.4% in the five years under study. But aluminium closures made significant progress in the same period, growing by 14.5% with a CAGR of 5.2% from 2012-2016.

Commenting on the figures, Guido Aufdemkamp, representing the Aluminium Closures Group said, “These reports show that aluminium closures are continuing to show strong advantages over other wine closure types. Their convenience and increasingly strong branding and decoration enhancements mean more and more winemakers are turning to aluminium closures.”

“In addition, it is worth noting that while the global volume of bottled still wine measured in 0.75L equivalent bottles by IWSR decreased by 2.8% in the period of 2012-2016 to 28.3 billion bottles, Euromonitor shows the total number of wine bottles sold worldwide was stable These figures rely on a more differentiated research method which results in higher numbers than many other sources forecasts in the media and elsewhere,” he added.

The situation in the United States of America continues to show a strong market for wine with aluminium closures. The number of 0.75L bottled wines of all varieties sold in 2016 increased 4.4% versus 2015, according to the study by IWSR. Sales reached over 3.8 billion bottles. Euromonitor confirms that aluminium closures accounted for 44.9% of all sales of bottled wine in the US in that year. The CAGR for aluminium closures in the US for the five-year period was 6%.


Expressing his delight at the continued growth of the aluminium screwcap market, Guido Aufdemkamp continued, “There is a truly global acceptance of aluminium closures, particularly with younger consumers and those new to wine, who show a real preference for screwcaps.”

“Consumers are convinced by their ease of use, as surveys of our Turn 360° campaign have demonstrated. In addition, these closures are completely recyclable, so fit completely with the current demands for more sustainable performance of packaging,” he concluded.

Aluminium Closures Group sponsors international wine award Mundus Vini 2018

Düsseldorf – The Aluminium Closures Group will sponsor this year’s prestigious international wine award, the Mundus Vini Spring Tasting. Via this engagement with a group of internationally recognized experts in the wine industry, the Group aims to expands its presence within the core market segment of fine wines.

“It is a unique opportunity to take part in Mundus Vini and be directly involved in an activity of such high quality and cultural importance to the world of fine wines. We are convinced that aluminium closures can generally support the qualitative growth of wine, while we continuously develop new solutions for the industry,” said Franco Bove, Chairman of the Aluminium Closures Group

The Group’s ‘Turn 360°’ campaign gives a fresh twist to the numerous advantages of aluminium closures for the wine, water and other beverage industries. The initiative focuses on the benefits of alu closures – such as convenience, conservation of taste and quality for the consumers.
The opportunities for design customization, sustainability and recyclability while achieving cost-effectiveness are of key interest to beverage makers and fillers.  For the wine trade, the reduction of spoilage and the associated economical risks are additional important considerations.

Mundus Vini is an internationally recognized wine award which takes place 20. – 25. February in Neustadt, Germany. An international jury delivers an independent, expert verdict on over 6000 wines from around the globe to guarantee a fair and professional competition.

The competition takes place daily, on the hour, from 12pm with the last opportunity to participate at 6pm. Each contestant will be asked to open, re-close and turn five bottles of wine upside down as fast as they can, demonstrating just how good aluminium closures are for efficient opening, re-closing and storage.

Every second aluminium closure in Europe is now recycled

The average recycling rate for aluminium closures in Europe has increased to more than 50%, according to figures released recently by the “Aluminium Closures – Turn 360°” campaign by the European Aluminium Foil Association. Much of this improvement is due to national initiatives and better collection and recycling schemes across Europe, according to the Association.

Aluminium closures, mainly used on bottles of wine, spirits, water and olive oil, can be collected either with the mixed packaging fraction or together with the glass collection stream. Thanks to modern processes the aluminium is easily extracted and recycled, from both material streams.

Because packaging collection and recycling systems in Europe vary considerably from country to country, national initiatives are proving to be most effective. For example, the UK’s “You Can Leave Your Cap On” scheme has enabled local authorities to increase the recovery of aluminium closures for recycling. Initiated by ALUPRO, in partnership with British Glass and EAFA, it encourages recyclers to screw the closures back on their empty bottles before recycling so that more aluminium can be successfully recovered. Sharing best practices in the European network of aluminium packaging recycling organisations, ALU DK initiated a similar project in Denmark with the “Keep the Cap on” campaign, supported by the Danish government. Other national organisations like CIAL in Italy increasingly refer to aluminium closures in their general and special announcements to raise the awareness that aluminium closures are perfectly suitable to be collected and recycled.

Commenting on the figures, EAFA’s Closures Group Chair Franco Bove said, “It is encouraging to see the industry continues to support national initiatives which enhance the collection and recycling of aluminium closures. Recycled aluminium is a valuable commodity, so supports the economics of the recycling process.”

These aluminium closure recycling rates are calculated on the basis of publicly available national overall aluminium recycling rates, plus consumption data from market research companies.

Join for ALUNCH and pay with aluminium closures: You are just a twist away!

Young professionals in Brussels are being invited to join ALUNCH at the prestigious Grapevine restaurant, near the European Parliament each Thursday through April and May. To ‘pay’ for their meals the lunchers need to bring along some aluminium bottle closures, which will enable them to feast on a variety of delicious food – all served in aluminium foil or containers, of course!

 

The initiative, which will run from 14th April until 26th May, aims to show the value of aluminium closures as well as other aluminium foil products and raise awareness of their benefits and convenience. All the closures will be collected in a transparent tube so that there will be a ‘bank’ full of them at the end of the period.

Guido Aufdemkamp, executive director of the organiser EAFA, the European Aluminium Foil Association explained the reasoning behind the event, “We wanted to make our point about the value of aluminium closures and, indeed the entire aluminium range, in an interesting and amusing way, which would be particularly appealing to the many international young men and women living, working and studying in Brussels, the Heart of Europe!”

The ALUNCHers will be treated to a menu (in French, Dutch and English) which will give them a choice of meals, desserts, coffee and treats all served in aluminium foil, containers, pouches or capsules.

EAFA will involve Social Media, including Facebook and Instagram to promote ALUNCH and hopes that guests will post some pictures on line showing their experiences, particularly the funny ones! Flyers and posters will also be placed in the restaurant which, being in the Place du Luxembourg is in a vibrant and busy location in the heart of the Brussels European Quarter.

All the closures collected will be sent for recycling; showing their true value to the community is simply a twist away.
