Glass Medicine Bottles Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2021-2031

Glass Medicine Bottles Market: An Overview

Medicines have always been preferred to be packed in sterile glass bottles because they are unreactive to the elements inside them. This makes sure that the formulation stays in its original chemical formulation and doesn’t ruin due to reaction or change in temperature inside glass bottles. Medicine glass bottles are extensively used as dropper or spray bottles. The growth of pharmaceutical and health care industry is expected to boost glass medicine bottles during the forecast period.

Medicine glass bottles are made of borosilicate glass which is different from normal glass. Borosilicate glass is made from silicon dioxide, which is found in sand. Boron oxide and other compounds are also added to borosilicate glass to make it more stable and unreactive. Borosilicate glass is resistant to any external elements and temperature which makes it an ideal substance for storing sensitive compounds like medicines. Medicines usually degrade in the presence of oxygen and hence need good closure properties, for which they require serum stoppers of the same bottle mouth dimensions. Features like high-barriers, tamper-evident and multi-layered glass are expected to uplift the glass medicine bottles market.
