Beverages hold over 70 percent market of container glass globally, and are driving the growth of the glass containers market, supported by rising disposable income, changing consumption pattern, and rising populations. Glass containers are regarded to have the highest premium appeal among its counterparts, and are infinitely recyclable with no loss of quality, further increasing their demand.  The market faces challenges from high logistics costs due to the weight of the glass, risk of substitution from plastic bottles, liquid cartons, and PET formats, and an increase in labor costs in developed nations. 

Glass packaging accounts for around 10 percent of the whole packaging sector. Relevant market trends include the preference of smaller pack sizes due to the increasing demand for single-serve packs and health awareness. Light weighting of packages is one of the focus areas for the convertors in the recent past, in order to achieve better material cost saving, reducing carbon footprint and logistics cost. Glass container weight has reduced by 30 percent over the past decade. Suppliers are gradually increasing cullet usage to reduce landfill and production costs.
