Glass container packaging output continues to rise, is it good or bad?

Compared with other packaging materials, glass packaging containers have the following advantages in terms of packaging: First, the material properties of glass will not change in contact with most chemicals, and there will be no packaging pollution to the packaged food; second, Glass containers have good corrosion resistance and acid corrosion resistance, and are suitable for packaging acidic substances; third, glass packaging containers have good barrier properties and sealing effects, which can effectively increase the shelf life of food; fourth, glass packaging has high The transparency and plasticity are strong, and it can be processed into various exquisite shapes according to different needs. Based on the above characteristics and advantages, glass packaging containers have a wide range of applications and good market demand in packaging and storage of various beverages, food seasonings, chemical reagents, and other daily necessities, and the output of glass packaging containers is also increasing. The "2017-2021 Glass Container Industry In-Depth Market Research and Investment Strategy Recommendation Report" released by New Thinking shows that the overall output of glass packaging containers in my country has maintained continuous growth. The cumulative annual output of glass packaging containers in my country from 2014 to 2016 was 19.75 million tons. , 20.47 million tons and 22.08 million tons.


    Glass packaging containers are a traditional industry of the national economy with a long history. The survival and development of the glass container industry directly affects the daily life of the people and the development of related supporting industries. The main raw materials of glass containers are quartz sand, soda ash and broken glass, and the main energy sources are electricity, coal or natural gas. Among them, quartz sand and soda ash are the basic raw materials for chemical reaction to form glass; after cleaning, cullet is directly added to the furnace, and physically melted to form molten glass, which is then reused to make glass packaging containers; depending on the way of providing power, the furnace Furnaces can be divided into electric kilns, coal kilns, and natural gas kilns. Upstream raw materials and energy have a direct impact on the product quality and production cost of glass packaging containers. At present, upstream industries such as quartz sand and soda ash have sufficient supply capacity to meet the normal production needs of the glass container industry.
  Glass packaging container has the advantages of stable chemical properties, anti-extrusion, good barrier and sealing properties, etc., it has a wide range of applications and good market demand in the packaging and storage of various types of wines, food seasonings, chemical reagents and other daily necessities. Industry analysts said that the downstream industry’s demand for glass container products directly determines its production and sales. For example, beer consumption has seasonal off-peak seasons, and the consumer demand for liquor in the liquor market is also relatively elastic. Therefore, the demand for beverage bottles has a certain season. Sex; the peak production season of canned food is often in the mature season of the food, and the corresponding demand for canned bottles will also show a seasonal increase. In addition, customer demand in downstream industries has rigid characteristics, so glass packaging containers do not have obvious periodic characteristics.
