Analysis on the Glass Industry

Navigating Shifting Market Dynamics


In recent years, price fluctuation in raw materials and an overall push in sustainability has caused a massive shift in the packaging industry. As a result, a private credit firm needed to get up to speed on comparable types of packaging and overall demand before investing in a glass packaging company.

The GLG Approach

The GLG Surveys team designed and executed a survey to capture past and current usage, obtain a competitive landscape analysis, and conduct a channel check to provide demand data from vendors and suppliers.

Initial findings factored into a multifaceted research project. The project included a teleconference on the performance outlook of Anchor Glass, phone consultations with a global director of packaging at a large packaging competitor and a former consultant with a 32-year career at Owens-Illinois.


GLG’s combination of research methodologies helped the client understand the glass packaging industry from many perspectives. The insights gained helped our client confidently make their investment decision.
