What is Driving the Demand for Glass Medicine Bottles?

Glass containers are among the primary packaging material that has found use in the pharmaceutical industries. Glass is an inorganic material mostly silicates or a mixture of materials. Pharmaceutical manufacturers are inclining towards bottle glass for drug containment due to its major advantage to maintain a steady temperature.

Glass can hold liquid or solid at a steady temperature without absorbing flavour, odour, and colour. Glass poses as a hindrance to atmospheric gases, such as carbon dioxide and oxygen, from entering the primary container, mitigating the risk of contamination of the drugs.

Glass packaging lowers the drug’s susceptibility to degradation, such as hydrolysis and oxidation. Moreover, glass packaging helps in resisting the escape of volatile ingredients, thereby increasing the drug stability. These advantages of glass packaging for medicines are expected to grow the glass medicine bottles market.

Moreover, rising environmental concerns and increasing recycling activities in developed and developing countries are expected to further support the growth of the global glass medicine bottles market.
