The global glass container packaging industry is mainly driven by the large volume demand for beverages in emerging markets such as China and India, followed by other end-use segments such as cosmetics, food, and pharmaceuticals. The cosmetics segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 4–5 percent, driven by increasing demand for premiumization. Skin care and color cosmetic segments are expected to register high growth rates of 5 and 7 percent, respectively, over the next five years. Design features, lightweighting, and functionality will be key market drivers for decorative glass containers.
