LONDON, August 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

The global glass packaging market has been passing through a difficult time. On one side it has been cannibalised by alternative packaging materials such as plastic and metal; while on the other side some of its attributes such as convenience and high costs restraining its growth in the mass container market. Commodity Inside expects that glass packaging will forgo a small proportion of its market share to its competitors over the next ten years. We have seen a number of glass packaging producers closing their facilities due to high capital required for their operations to be competitive. Moreover, some multinational companies ceased their operations due to stiff competition from local players, for instance Owens-Illinois (O-I) wind up a significant proportion of its production capacity in the Chinese market.

Commodity Inside expects that cost cutting strategy will remain a norm in the glass packaging industry. Producers in the mass container market will continue to sell on low margins to maintain their volumes elevated, which will be a very unsustainable strategy resulting market distortions and further reductions in profits. Commodity Inside expects that producers of premium, super premium and prestige containers products -particularly for beverage and personal care markets- will continue to command relatively higher margins. However, their products also need to be innovative, cost effective and adopt the changing market dynamics.

Besides downside risks and ongoing tough conditions in the glass packaging market, a number of expansion plans are lined up and new facilities are expected to come online in various regions. Commodity Inside has identified a number of regions and countries where there are still huge potential for growth through Greenfield, Brownfield or M&A.
