COVID-19 Impact on Glass Containers Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the packaging industry owing to the instabilities in the supply chain. While businesses across food and beverages sector reported sluggish growth, pharmaceutical industry continues exhibiting demand for effective packaging amid pandemic crisis.

Consequently, the market for glass containers have seen a decrease in revenue in Q1 and Q2 of 2020. This is partly due to government restrictions imposed on manufacturing industries and outlets that serve food & beverages to contain the spread of the virus.

However, as the sanitization process and non-contaminated beverage systems have improved, beverage intake is slowly rising in developed and emerging countries. This move is anticipated to accelerate more glass container shipments to the global market by the end of the year 2020. Industries such as retail packaging, e-commerce and logistics are also expected to see a fast turnaround.
