Drivers and Restraints of the European Glass Packaging Market

The European market for glass packaging has been growing steadily as people are adopting this form of packaging over plastic because of the ecological benefits. This has led to advancements in technology and improvements in the industry. Beverage packaging is mostly done with the help of glass. This has resulted in the growth of the packaging sector. The glass container industry represents close to 70% of the total glass production in Europe, and it is safe to assume that glass packaging is widely implied all across Europe.
The government norms of the various countries in the European Union (EU) have resulted in manufacturing companies adopting eco-friendly packaging alternatives over plastic and glass has emerged out to be one of the most widely used forms.

Glass packaging as compared to other packaging alternatives is expensive and thus companies are reluctant to use glass as their preferred material for packaging. The recent emergence of bioplastics has enhanced the usage of those materials and provides a cheap and environment-friendly alternative to plastic. These factors hinder the growth of the regional market.  

The glass packaging market has been segmented into the following categories:

On the basis of Product

  1. Borosilicate
  2. De-Alkalized Soda Lime
  3. Soda Lime

On the basis of Application

  1. Alcoholic Beverages
  2. Food & Beverages
  3. Pharmaceutical
  4. Beer

Glass packaging is widely used in the beverage industry, most of the packaging activity is carried out for alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Along with the beverage industry, the food packaging sector uses glass packaging for storing jams, oils, and other food products. The beer industry in Germany is a significant sector where the demand for glass packaging takes place. Not only packaging but glass materials are used over plastics in various regions across Europe. The Healthcare industry also has wide-scale implications of glass packaging and contributes a lot towards the growth of the industry. The protective glass packaging market is expected to grow at a CAGR between 3 to 4% in the forecasted period. This segment has a vast application; and medical, industrial packaging, etc., are dependent on the protective glass packaging industry for their functioning. 

Geographical overview and regional presence

Western European countries have dominated the glass packaging market in the past and are continuing to do so at the present. Germany, France, UK, and Italy together account for over 50% of the market share. Scandinavian countries such as Norway, Denmark have adopted recycling glass as their primary source of packaging form. These countries have achieved more than 70% recyclability in the past few years and are aiming to hit the 90% mark.

There are several major market players who are asserting their dominance in the glass packaging market in recent years, some of the big names in Europe are:

  1. The Sherwin-Williams Company

  2. Owen-Illinois, Inc.

  3. Amcor Limited.

  4.  RPM International Inc.

Impact of COVID-19 on the European Glass packaging Market:

COVID-19 has exposed severe challenges for the glass packaging market by impacting end-user industries. Major economies of Europe like Italy, the UK, etc., are affected due to the coronavirus pandemic as it was the early hotspot for the pandemic, which resulted in the slowdown of manufacturing industries. The glass packaging industry in the European region has gone up and is doing very well. The demand for packaging, unlike many other industries, has increased during the pandemic; bioplastics and glass have been very high in demand. In the medical sector, glass is extensively used for various purposes and thus highest demand has been witnessed from the medical sector. Healthcare experts have suggested that amidst the absence of vaccines, trials are expected to ramp up, and thus the demand for glass packaging will be very high. The growth in demand is attributed to the growth of pharmaceutical industries during this period.
