According to the report, the global glass packaging market was valued at US$ 40.32 Bn in 2013 and is likely to reach US$ 55.24 Bn by 2020, expanding at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period, between 2014 and 2020. In terms of volume, the global demand for glass packaging stood at 54,246.8 kilo tons in 2013.
Dark colored glass bottles are often used in packaging beer, as glass deflects UV rays, thereby reducing the occurrence of "skunky" beer. Rise in global consumption of beer is expected to be one of the primary factors driving the glass packaging market. Growth of the healthcare industry and higher usage of glass bottles for storage of medicines due to its sterility and reusability is also anticipated to increase demand for glass packaging over the next few years. However, rising popularity of plastics and its increasing scope of application for packaging are likely to hamper market growth. Increasing consumer preference for glass for packaging of food, beverages and chemicals is anticipated to offer new opportunities for market growth in the near future.
