Glass being non-porous, impermeable and non-reactive, is the most preferred packaging material for various alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Glass packaging, does not alter the flavor of the liquid contained inside and keeps the flavor intact as long as the container is properly sealed making it the preferable choice. Moreover, influenced by the desire to reduce use of plastic in a global scenario, which is increasingly environment-conscious, manufacturers are extensively using glass in the packaging of beverages. The rise in demand for beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, resulting from increased global consumption is a key factor in stimulating the growth of the market. Surging demand for glass packaging from the pharmaceutical industry is another important influencer of market growth.

Glass is primarily used as packaging material in the pharmaceutical industry owing to its protective and rigid qualities. Glass can also be used to contain strong acids and alkalis and is an excellent barrier against all elements due to its chemically inert quality, and as such the material is preferred for pharmaceutical packaging. Additonally, glass packaging material is economically priced which further contributes to its demand in the pharmaceutical industry. Growth in the pharmaceutical industry directly translates into growth in demand for glass packaging market. Rising industrialization across the globe coupled with the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, which requires drug and medical technology bolsters the growth of the glass packaging market.

Availability of alternatives in the packaging market is a critical restraining factor to the growth of the glass packaging market. Other packaging materials such as plastics and metals which are lighter, more resistant to breakage, reduce transportation costs and perform well under harsh or variable storage conditions as compared to glass are being largely preferred for the packaging of varied products such as juices, water, soft drinks and others However, a widespread preference toward measures which reduce carbon footprint are expected to mitigate the challenge these alternatives represent. Moreover, developing economies such as India, China, Vietnam, Thailand and Brazil store potential growth opportunities for the global glass packaging market. Along with rapid economic advancements, these regions are also advancing in terms of preference, income, and lifestyle. The presence of a large population pool with an evolving lifestyle and higher disposable income has resulted in a greater tendency to indulge more on packaged food and other packaged personal and beauty care products which provides ample scope of expansion to the glass packaging market. Moreover, increasing alcohol consumption among the growing population also provides impetus to the growth of the market, thus providing room for market expansion.
