I believe it has more to do with temperature rather than the packaging. Soda cans will explode when warm because liquids expand when they're heated. So as it gets hotter, it takes up more room. If the can is sealed, eventually as it gets warmer & warmer, and trying to expand more and more, the pressure will build up until the can bursts.

This is a chronic problem with taking canned drinks to the Colorado River during the Summer. We have to keep all the Cokes and Beer covered or in a iced cooler. When it hits 110' or put in direct sunlight and heat the cans start going off. Even inside the truck but in direct sun light they will go off.
They do make for one sticky mess. I notice as we get older we drink a lot more water and iced tea then coke and beer while out in the hot sun on the river.

I have noticed that the companies that make the cans that they sell to soda and beer makers are using much thinner aluminum than they used to, so the cans are more liable to burst or be damaged in transit. everyone, bottlers and customers should demand that they go back to the thicker aluminum, as this thin stuff is making problems.

A former colleague of mine went to work at Ball Aerospace several years ago. Interestingly, an aerospace company makes many of the aluminum cans on the market, and it is a very tightly controlled process. They can monitor the thickness of the can and the coating on the inside to tight tolerances. They use artificial intelligence to scan for image defects on the outsides of the cans as they fly down the production line.
If the current cans are not acceptable, the beverage makers need to give this feedback to the can manufacturer and arrange for a thicker can. I would think that they will do what they are contracted to do.
