Overall still wine consumption worldwide still struggled to reach pre-pandemic levels in 2021, but aluminium closures held its market share in this sector. According to IWSR Drinks Market Analysis* global wine consumption continues its long-term downward trajectory...

The Aluminium Closures Group (ACG) is celebrating 10 years since its formation in 2012. The ACG has played an influential role in promoting the benefits of screwcaps via a number of landmark events and campaigns, plus undertaking important research over the last decade. These have been aimed at producers in wine, spirits, water, oil and vinegar markets, as well as consumers.

An in-depth survey of 5,000 consumers, undertaken by the global market research company Censuswide*, to discover consumer preferences on wine closures has confirmed that most continue to prefer aluminium closures over other options.

The new and expanded website for the Aluminium Closures Group, part of the European Aluminium Foil Association (EAFA) family, has gone live. It explains one of the most impressive developments in the closures market – the rise of the screwcap. The screwcap revolution is based on many advantages screwcaps have compared to other types of closures for wine, spirits, water and oil, such as convenience, preservation of taste and quality, design and branding opportunities as well as being sustainable and economic.

Screw caps as closures for wines are on the rise – during the recent Mundus Vini* 2019 summer tasting, where 170 wine experts from 45 countries blind taste wines from all over the world, award-winning wines using aluminium closures accounted for 23% of the total (397 of 1737 medal winners) compared to 20% in 2018 (344 of 1730.) – that is an increase of 15%.
