The global market for glass bottles is expected to reach 65.4 MMT by 2022 while growing at a continuous CAGR of 3-4 percent. The demand will be driven by an increasing consumption of alcoholic beverages in developing markets such as India and China. Globally, the market for glass containers is estimated to be operating at 60-70 percent of its installed capacity. This could lead to slow demand from alcoholic beverages, with a growth of 1-2 percent in the West.

Alcoholic beverages, which hold over 70 percent of the market share in the end-user segment, will continue to dominate the glass bottle market for the next decade. This is due to the increasing consumption of beer and wine in the APAC. The APAC region is a key driver in the glass container market with a 35 percent market share. Maturing consumption of alcoholic beverages in the West might drive the buyers to expand to developing markets, like India, China, Vietnam, Thailand, Mexico, etc. Emerging markets have high growth potential, driven by increasing consumption and trade attractiveness of the glass packaging market.
