The Glass Bottles and Containers Market with a production of 689.94 units in 2020 was valued at USD 58.64 billion in 2020, and it is expected to be valued at USD 78.41 billion, and reach 922.43 billion units by 2026, registering a CAGR of 4.18%, during the forecast period 2021-2026. COVID-19 outbreak created a growing necessity for industries in the F&B sector to focus more on hygiene and sanitization and given the current situation, people, nowadays, are opting for a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. As most of the products in this sector are included in essential services, it becomes crucial for the packaging sector to follow conservative practices.

Alcoholic drinks, like beer, accounted for the largest segment of the market, as glass does not react with the chemicals present in drinks and, therefore, preserves the aroma, strength, and flavor of these beverages, making it a favorable option for packaging. Due to this reason, a majority of the beer volume is transported in glass bottles, and this trend is expected to continue over the study period. Glass packaging is 100% recyclable, which makes it a desirable packaging option from the environmental point of view. 6 ton of recycled glass directly save 6 ton of resources and reduce the emission of CO2 by 1 ton.
One of the main factors driving the growth of the market is the increase in beer consumption worldwide. Beer is one of the alcoholic beverages that use glass bottles for packaging. It is packed in dark-colored glass bottles to preserve the contents, which are prone to spoilage when exposed to UV light.
There has been an increasing trend of transparency in food packaging over the past few years. Going beyond the listed ingredients on the label, consumers also want to see the physical product before purchase. In order to capture this trend, many companies, especially dairy product companies, have started offering their products in transparent glass containers.
High competition from substitute packaging like plastic, metal is challenging the market’s growth. Incremental advancements in plastic packaging solutions are posing a threat to the market studied. This can be primarily attributed to the popularity of plastics, such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET), as substitutes for glass bottle formats.

Key Market Trends

Milk is expected to Account for Significant Market Share

The global dairy industry has been witnessing a backward shift from plastic to glass bottles. Driven by consumer demand for environmentally friendly milk, many small dairy market players choose to sell their products in reusable bottles. The demand for glass bottles in the milk industry has been increasingly more in Europe, when compared to other regions.
DiaryDrop, based in Alderly Edge, which has 3,000 customers in Cheshire, announced a significant reversal in the glass milk bottle delivery trend. Another Cheshire-based milk supplier, Creamline Dairies, witnessed an increase of 85% in the number of people getting glass bottles delivered since last year.
Moreover, with companies, such as A.B. Munroe Dairy United States, taking several initiatives to encourage people to use glass bottles by providing door-to-door delivery of fresh milk bottles, the market studied, especially in the sub-urban regions of the United States, is expected to grow over the forecast period.
Dairy firms across the United Kingdom have witnessed a surge in demand for milk in glass bottles. About 17 out of 20 dairy businesses, researched by BBC News, have observed a surge in sales of glass milk bottles to homes and businesses amid concern over plastic waste.
The Pan-UK company, Milk & More, and East-London dairy giant, Parker Dairies, have found a substantial increase in the demand for glass bottles. Most of the dairies from London mentioned that most of the change is from their younger consumers whose families seem more than willing to pay a little extra for the service rather than the plastic, in their efforts to help the environment.

Asia Pacific is Expected to Hold the Largest Market Share

The Asia Pacific region is expected to register a significant growth rate compared to other nations owing to an increase in demand for pharmaceutical and chemical industries, which prefers glass packaging because of the inert nature of glass bottles. China, India, Japan, and Australia among others are the prominent nations majorly contributing to the growth of the Asia Pacific glass packaging market.
The pharmaceutical and healthcare sector in China is one of the largest markets in the world, mainly driven by its ageing population. Due to the recent regulatory changes in the country, the foreign pharmaceutical companies are facing difficulties in conducting business, especially when it comes to market entry and price control. Hence, there is a potential growth opportunity for the domestic players as they might experience an increase in demand for glass bottles and containers from these companies.
In India, only the reusage of glass packaging solution, especially bottles, is increasing. As the Indian consumers are emphasizing on health, they are showing preference toward glass packaging over other options, as it prevents leaching from its surface. Also, the country comprises many companies, including Hindustan National Glass and Asahi India Glass, offering glass packaging solutions across the industries.
Japan boasts of one of the fastest-growing pharmaceutical industries after the United States, and is continuously focusing on strong innovation and patent drugs. The Government of Japan is also contributing to the growth through deregulations for international companies to invest, thus driving the pharmaceutical market in the country.
Additionally, international companies are extensively investing in pitching to the Chinese market. For instance, Givaudan has invested USD 100 million for forming its new production hub for its fragrance business. The plant is expected to start operation by 2020.

Competitive Landscape

The glass bottles and containers market is highly competitive and fragmented. Few of the major companies in this market are Owens-Illinois Inc., Hindustan National Glass & Industries Ltd, Vitro, S.A.B. De CV, Amcor Ltd, etc. These established vendors with strong access to distribution channels have a strong foothold in the market studied.

Using state of the art equipment from Erema, it is Resilux’s latest step in their drive to create a truly circular economy in PET.
