Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Glass Forming Machine Market size is anticipated to cross USD 1300 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 5% during the time period 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of glass forming machine was over USD 300 Billion. The growth of this market can be attributed to the back increasing demand in the food & beverage sector. Glass packing is regarded as a premium and sustainable option for food and beverage products leading to increased demand in this sector. PepsiCo aims to minimize the use of 67 billion plastic containers by 2025, and as an alternative, it is anticipated that glass bottles will be used.

With the introduction of glass forming machines and the expansion of new machinery technologies, conventional glass products - such as flat glass, dishes, boxes, tubes and rods, and fiberglass - that are created from glass melted during the melting process have undergone tremendous change. This is particularly true when producing big quantities of glass goods, which can greatly increase machinery sales. The production property of shaping machinery is driving up demand for it.

Glass Forming Machine Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Growing Demand for Sustainable Products - Growing emphasis on environmentally friendly and sustainable glass manufacturing is one of the most recent developments in the glass forming machine market. Although the manufacture of glass is already 30% lighter and 70% less energy-intensive compared to it was fifty years ago, the glass industry has already made significant progress toward decarbonization; zero carbon emissions are the ultimate aim. The glass sector is not an exception to the growing demand for sustainable products. Glass producers are searching for methods to lower their environmental impacts and use more environmentally friendly production techniques. This entails cutting back on waste, utilizing renewable energy sources, and employing less dangerous chemicals throughout production. It is anticipated that the need for environmentally friendly glass-forming equipment would increase as more people adopt sustainable habits.
  • Demand for 3D Printing in Glass - Another big trend in the glass forming machine market is the application of 3D printing technology in the glass manufacturing process. Glass shapes that are complex and elaborate can be precisely and accurately produced by 3D printing. Because it produces glass goods with little material waste, this method can also reduce waste. Even while 3D printing is still relatively new in the glass industry, it is predicted to grow in popularity over the next few years, especially for products made to order.


  • High Initial Investment Required – Setting up a glass forming machine line requires significant capital expenditure making it difficult for small and medium-sized businesses to enter the market. The limits competition and hinders market expansion in the upcoming period.
  • Fluctuation in Raw Material Prices are Set to Hamper the Market Growth in the Forecast Period.
  • Challenges in Recycling and Reusing the Glass Containers are Predicted to Pose Limitation on the Market Growth Further

Glass Forming Machine Segmentation

End-Use (Health-Care, Chemical, Food & Beverages, Laboratories)  

In terms of end user segment, the food & beverage segment is expected to hold 40% share of the global glass forming machine market by the end of 2036. In the manufacture of large volumes of glass products for end-use sectors, a glass-forming machine shall also be used extensively. Glass packaging is highly used in the food & beverage sector owing to the high penetration of food globally. The majority of food and beverage sales are generated by supermarkets and shopping centers, representing an 85 percent market share in 2021. However, sales are likely to improve over the assessment period despite lockdown and shelter-at-home guidelines limiting production activities. As a result, the growth of the food and beverage sector has been driven by continuous investments in manufacturing as well as production linked to them, thereby maintaining market growth for glass-formed machinery throughout the pandemic period.

Method Type (Blow & Blow, Press &Blow Method)

Glass forming machine market from the press & blow segment is predicted to grow significantly registering a growth of 30% by the end of the forecast period. This method is highly utilized to make glass containers with narrow necks such as vials and jars. They offer amazing grip over the shape and thickness of the boxes. Manufacturers are increasingly investing in automated press & blow machines to enhance production efficiency and reduce labor costs. Furthermore, manufacturers are also developing press and blow machines that are lighter, stronger, and more durable.
