Container Glass Market Statistics – 2030

The global container glass market was valued at $82.2 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $155.9 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2021 to 2030.

Container glass or glass container constitutes boron trioxide and silica as main glass-forming constituents. It has very low coefficient of thermal expansion (around 3×10−6 per Kelvin at 20 degree Celsius). Soda-lime-silica-based, also known as soda-lime glass is among the most prevalent type of glass. It possesses excellent significant properties such as chemical stability, extreme workability, high melting temperature, and thermal shock resistance that makes it best suited for manufacturing windowpanes, glass containers, and commodity items in foods & beverages, pharmaceuticals, décor, and other end-use sectors.          

Global-Container-Glass-Market

Rise in demand for packed food & beverage items has led to rise in demand for soda-lime-silica-based glass for storage of a wide range of food ingredients. This acts as one of the key drivers responsible for growth of the container glass market for soda-lime-silica-based. Moreover, growth in population has led to rise in the building & construction sector where soda-lime-silica-based glass is used in windowpanes, owing to their hardness and ease of workability. In addition, factors such as cheap and easy availability has made customers more linear toward using soda-lime-silica-based glass for a wide range of applications including manufacturing bottles, drinking glasses, and glass bake ware. This is anticipated to increase sales of soda-lime-silica-based glass among various end-use sectors; thus, creating lucrative opportunities for the market. All these factors collectively surge demand for container glass, thereby augmenting the global market growth.

However, container glass is manufactured by annealing process in which different air polluting compounds such as sulfur dioxides, nitrogen oxides, and other harmful particulates are released. Exposure of these harmful compounds at high concentrations cause severe respiratory diseases such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, mucus secretion, and lungs cancer. Moreover, particulates released during the final stage of container glass manufacturing are even more dangerous as they are smaller in size (around 10 micrometer or even smaller) and cause several health-related disorders, once they enter the respiratory tract. These factors are projected to hamper growth of the container glass market during the forecast period. 

On the contrary, increase in weight of container glasses as compared to plastic and other materials of same dimension has led customers to become more linear toward using other materials for storage and packaging applications. However, emergence of lightweight container glass enables cost saving by significantly reducing the amount of raw material used in manufacturing container glass. Moreover, cost of transportation is reduced, owing to lightweight of new materials. This factor is anticipated to offer new opportunities in the global container glass market. 

The container glass market is segmented on the basis of glass type, forming method, end-user, and region. On the basis of glass type, the market is categorized into borosilicate-based and soda-lime-silica-based.

Impact Of Covid-19 On The Global Container Glass Market

  • The novel coronavirus is an incomparable global pandemic that has spread to over 180 countries and caused huge losses of lives and the economy around the globe. 
  • Major end-users of container glass such as foods & beverages, cosmetics & personal care, packaging, chemicals, and others have been negatively impacted, owing to the ongoing pandemic outbreak. The ongoing health crisis has increased supply-demand gap, hampering the global container glass supply chain. 
  • According to a report published by Molecular Diversity Preservation International (MDPI), the South African food and non-alcoholic beverage sector have gone through a moderate decline of flow of income by 10% to 30%, whereas alcoholic beverages have experienced a bigger impact of 60% in 2020. 
  • This, in turn, has decreased demand for container glass used in storage and packaging applications in the foods & beverages sector amid the COVID-19 period. In addition, more than 100 countries have locked their international borders for transportation and non-essential trade activities, which have decreased demand for container glasses among several end-use sectors. 
  • Furthermore, temporary shutdown of construction and infrastructure activities amid the COVID-19 period has reduced consumption of container glass for interior and exterior décor purposes. For instance, according to a report published by a research journal, the COVID-19 pandemic has reduced investments in the construction industry in India by 30%. This has resulted in decreased consumption of container glass in the home décor industry.
  • In 2020, container glass prices are expected to be higher in Asia. The price rise is attributed to continuous regional demand trends. Firm downstream container glass demand and stronger upstream costs are expected to sustain the price gain. Few chemical plants have closed for renovation and a few are shut down currently, which hampers demand for container glasses amid the COVID-19 period.
  • However, the container glass market is expected to recover rapidly post COVID-19 situation, owing to its increased dependency over healthcare & pharmaceutical, e-commerce, foods & beverages, and other sectors. For instance, according to a report published by the Business Standard, COVID-19 second wave has increased sales of medicines in both domestic and international markets by 59% in April 2021. This is expected to enhance the performance of the container glass market post-COVID-19.
