Global Glass Packaging Market to Grow at a CAGR of 4.4% During 2024-2032, Driven by the Contribution of Glass Packaging to a Circular Economy

Global Glass Packaging Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘Global Glass Packaging Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the market attained a value of nearly USD 68.49 billion in 2023. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% between 2024 and 2032 to reach a value of around USD 100.86 billion by 2032.

The recyclability of glass is aiding its demand among eco-conscious consumers, favouring the glass packaging market growth. Glass can be infinitely recycled, saving resources and energy, and lowering carbon emissions of the packaging sector. Across the European Union, glass is collected for recycling via kerbside and bottle bank collection under Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) schemes.


Further, glass bottles can be used around 50 times before being recycled and re-melted into new products, leading to a complete circular economy. In the food and beverage sector, glass is preferred for packaging due to its inertness, high barrier properties, and non-toxic nature. Technological advancements have improved the strength and weight of glass. Lightweight glass packaged products are easier and cost-effective to transport.


Europe is expected to lead the market with a significant market share owing to the demand for glass packaging for alcoholic beverages, such as wine. For instance, France is world-famous for its wines. The top five Bordeaux wineries, including Chateau Lafite-Rothshild, Chateau Latour, Chateau Haut Brion, Chateau Margaux, and Chateau Monton-Rothshild, are significant consumers of glass bottles.


The wide availability of glass packaging products like jars at physical and online channels, such as Walmart Inc (NYSE: WMT), Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR), and Inc (NASDAQ: AMZN), aids the market growth.
