Glass Packaging Market Analysed by Visiongain

27 Mar 2012 • by Natalie Aster

As the global glass packaging market undergoes regional shifts and technological changes, the industry will have to respond with innovation and flexibility. Growth will be uneven across regions, while developed markets are maturing; emerging markets appear to be pivotal for the industry growth. High growth regions grouped under acronyms such as BRIC's or CIVET's (Columbia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Egypt, Turkey) are experiencing rapid increase in disposable income which translates into higher consumer spending in the cosmetics, food and beverage sectors. Similarly, changing demographics of the world population and population ageing is likely to impact the glass packaging industry in term of design, consuming habits and should drive growth especially in the healthcare glass packaging market. The global glass packaging market is estimated to be worth $34.8bn in 2012.

According to the report “The Glass Packaging Market 2012-2022” by Visiongain, the glass packaging market still suffers from competition of plastic and paper packaging which capture most of the growth in the global packaging industry. Nonetheless, the premium image of glass and its natural characteristics, should allow glass to retain market share in high end products and benefit from solid growth in spirits, wine and beer consumption.
