Glass is one of the oldest products.
In all aspects of human life, production, culture and science and technology, glass materials have played and continue to play an important role. Due to the excellent characteristics of glass materials, it is a commonly used packaging material in the food industry, chemical industry, medical and health industries.
The rapid development of the glass packaging industry is largely determined by competition with plastic bottles. The price of raw materials required to produce plastic fluctuates with the price of petroleum, while glass raw materials are very abundant and the price is stable. Because glass production requires a lot of energy, glass is also affected by fuel prices. Nevertheless, because glass containers have unparalleled advantages over other packaging materials, it is still an important packaging material today and in the future.
