Research Strategy

The can taps market is a niche market that isn't covered in the mainstream media. A review of industry news and media sources such as PR Newswire, Globe Newswire, FSR Magazine, and Healthcare Packaging, among others, did not uncover any news reports for the can/dispensing taps market in the UK from the last 6-12 months. Expanding the research time frame to the last 24 months didn't yield any helpful results either. Since most of the primary players in this market offer their products worldwide, we expanded our focus to include notable industry news and innovations in the global dispensing caps market from the last 12-18 months.
