The global market for glass packaging is thriving on back of increasing consumer demand for pure, green, and sustainable food and
beverage packaging. The fact that glass containers are chemically inert and pure, and thus safer to be used, their popularity and
demand is notably high among consumers. Further, the perception of glass containers as having a high quality or premium image
compared to plastic and metal containers is also facilitating its growth.
Its key property of being chemically inert and transparent makes glass the most suitable medium of packaging of liquor,
pharmaceutical/life saving drugs and food items. Unlike plastic, cans, and multi layered cartons, glass containers do not need a
petroleum-based plastic layer or other chemical additive to preserve the taste of foods and beverages, avoid corrosion or decrease gas
permeability. Glass does not deteriorate, corrode, stain or fade, so products inside glass container remain as fresh and pure as they
were bottled. Recyclable property is another major advantage of glass which makes it a preferred choice for packaging. In addition to
the above benefits of glass, factors like increasing demand from emerging markets of India and China, rising cosmetic sales, changing
lifestyle, increasing per capita income are also driving the growth of the glass container industry.
