Soda lime glass to dominate as innovative products enter market

In 2018, the soda lime glass segment held over 60% of the Europe glass packaging market share. Several leading industry players have been coming up with novel products. For instance, Stoelzle Glass Group, a prominent European manufacturer of superior quality packaging glass introduced a new stable, resource efficient, innovative, and safe Type II glass used in neutral and acidic aqueous preparations in December 2020. It developed a new technique for treating soda silica glass, with the goal to invent a technology for smaller bottles that are required in a range of pharma products. Sustainable glass packaging standards are also being prioritized. Thus, the Europe glass packaging market outlook appears to be all set for considerable expansion.

Alcoholic beverages segment to foster growth
