Glass packaging industry – a global scenario explored in new market research report
Dark colored glass bottles are often used in packaging beer, as glass deflects UV rays, thereby reducing the occurrence of “skunky” beer. Rise in global consumption of beer is expected to be one of the primary factors driving the glass packaging market.
Growth of the healthcare industry and higher usage of glass bottles for storage of medicines due to its sterility and reusability is also anticipated to increase demand for glass packaging over the next few years. However, rising popularity of plastics and its increasing scope of application for packaging are likely to hamper market growth.
Increasing consumer preference for glass for packaging of food, beverages and chemicals is anticipated to offer new opportunities for market growth in the near future. Alcoholic beverages (excluding beer) was the largest application segment of glass packaging, accounting for over 40% share of the global market in terms of volume in 2013. The segment is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period, followed by beer, due to rising consumption of these beverages.
