According to Technavio analysts, the glass packaging market in Europe will grow at a CAGR of over 2% during the forecast period.

In this report, Technavio highlights the demand for sustainable packaging as one of the key emerging trends in the glass packaging market in Europe:
Demand for sustainable packaging
During the forecast period, sustainable packaging is expected to have a major impact on the purchasing decision of the customer. This can be attributed to the growing consensus among consumers that the packaging materials lead to more wastage. Nearly one-third of the consumers consider that some products are often over-packaged. Thus, the material with the least environmental footprint will have high demand. This will impact the food and beverages packaging industries as they are the fastest growing segments of glass packaging in Europe.
“Glass stands at third position after paper and metal, in terms of recyclable packaging materials. Presently, nearly 70% of glass containers produced in Europe comes from recycled glass. Companies that have adopted sustainable policies in their manufacturing activities have reported a margin of up to 3%-5% higher than their traditional manufacturing counterparts. Thus, by increasing the proportion of recycled raw glass in raw material, glass container manufacturers have a scope to increase their margins. They can combine with glass recycling companies to develop efficient glass collecting practices to bring back 30% of wastes glass into the cycle,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on .
