Availability of different shapes, sizes, designs, and printing have attracted the consumer to adopt the purchase of container glass which has given a positive response for the market growth of container glass during the forecast period. However, the higher risk of breakage and increased transportation cost of products packed in the container glass needs gentle care which is considered as a restrain in the market growth. Additionally, the manufacture of container glass involves interaction with harmful air-polluting compounds such as nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide among others, and exposure to such gases causes asthma, mucus secretion, bronchitis, and lungs cancer. Such factors also hamper the rise of the container glass market during the forecast period. However, with the advancement of technology the heavier container glass has been replaced by the lightweight container glass thus saving the amount of raw material used, and reduction in transportation charges thus accelerating the demand by the consumers across the globe. Such aspects is anticipated for newer prospects for the global container glass market.
