  • Availability of Cheap products

  • Surging Demand for Paper Based and Steel Drinkware

The global crystalware and glassware market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by product into the lead glass, soda lime glass, and heat-resistant glass. Out of these, the soda lime glass segment is anticipated to significantly grow over the forecast period owing to its most commonly produced variant glass, less expensiveness, chemical stability, and notable ability to transmit visible light which makes it a very ideal material to use in several kinds of industries. For instance, since atoms in soda lime glass have strong intermolecular bonds and are strongly integrated, other compounds are not able to influence its structure and cause corrosion to the glass. This makes it appropriate for use in chemical environments. It has a hardness of 5-7 on the Mohs scale and a refractive index of about 1.5, which means that only about 4% of the light that strikes it is reflected. The remainder passes through, making it a great substance for applications requiring high-light transmission.
