Caps and Closures market forms a very important part of rigid packaging industry and is gaining traction due to the increasing demand from the overall packaging industry.

The caps and closures can be used to package different type of containers such as bottles, canisters, tubes, cans and beverages cartons etc.
Sprinkle caps are type of caps that are used to sprinkle different products like herbs, seasoning, granules and powder etc. through multiple holes. They come in different shape, size and material depending on the product and the packaging required for different product item. Furthermore, due to the growing popularity of sprinkle caps and varied applications being identified, new products in this space are being developed with time. For example, launch of Spoonkler by RPC Containers Ltd for the Bart Ingredients Company's spice range was introduced when the brand discovered that awkward shape of most spice jars was seen as a hindrance by several customers. These type of frequent innovations are expected to drive the demand in the sprinkle caps market.
