Glass Packaging Market Growth Drivers and Trends:

· Glass to Substitute the Enormous Plastic Empire-

Stringent regulations to support plastic ban is a major factor diverting substantial applications from plastic packaging towards eco-friendly and recyclable glass packaging market. For example, the UN has launched a campaign #CleanSeas to eliminate marine plastic litter by 2022.[4]  Glass packaging remains the primary option by industries such as cosmetic packaging market and pharmaceutical packaging market due to its recyclable traits and ecological concerns.

· Glass Packaging Supplementing Organic Culture-

Organic product vendors are the major consumers of glass packaging as the use of plastic packaging is the major drawback for industrial base. Organic industry can simply be overshadowed by adoption of plastics in packaging. For instance, organic dairy producers are witnessing a demand from organic-inclined customers for glass bottles that can be reused, refilled and recyclable. Similarly, in personal care industry, the trend of organic products is uplifting the demand for glass packaging.

· Coca Cola recently announced its ‘World Without Waste’ campaign and accepted its accountability towards increasing plastic litter globally. The company with 500 types of beverages is anticipated to switch to glass and cans or cardboards from plastic bottles by 2020. This trend is followed by several other vendors and enforced by government authorities globally. Hence, wide adoption of glass packaging will boost the market growth during the forecast period.
