Market Overview

Growing global packaged beverage consumption

The global packaged beverage consumption is expected to witness an average annual growth rate of around 2.8% during the forecast period. The growing global packed beverage consumption is expected to increase the demand for glass recycling as most of the beverages are packed in glass containers. Recycled glass improves the profit margin of the end-users. Many beverage manufacturers are adopting recycled packaging materials, including glass containers, for their product packaging.

Availability of several substitutes for glass

The market consists of many substitutes for glass products such as metal and plastic. The most critical factor that spurs the adoption of these substitutes is the fragility of glass. The improper handling of glass products can lead to breakage. Therefore, consumers prefer plastic product owing to its durability. Another critical challenge for the global glass recycling market is the premium prices of glass products. Glass products are more expensive than alternatives such as plastic. The high costs of glass products such as tableware prevent many people from buying them. Apart from the high upfront costs, glass products require more frequent replacement when compared with plastics. Thus, the availability of several substitutes of glass products is expected to affect the demand for glass products and, hence, the requirement for recycling.
