Factors such as increase in the income levels, trend towards urbanization, move towards smaller pack sizes, etc. will boost the demand for caps & closures. The European & North American markets are expected to show a modest growth trend, owing mainly to the saturated end-use markets in the region. East European nations are expected to show healthy growth in the coming years
