The current situation of the development of glass containers in Japan (I)

recently, Japan Toyo glass company paid a visit to the China Packaging Federation. During the friendly exchanges, Japan Toyo glass company briefly introduced the development status of Japan's glass bottle industry to the Chinese side, some of which are helpful and reference for the development of China's glass packaging industry. For this reason, this paper introduces the development status of Japanese glass bottle industry to readers in a graphic way. Figure 1 shows the output changes of glass bottles in Japan in recent years. In 1990, the output reached the highest value, which was 2.4 million tons by weight and 11billion by quantity. Since 1995, the output of glass bottles in Japan has gradually decreased. By 2003, the output was only 1.39 million tons, which was 57% of the 90 year peak of 19 detectable wear-resistant properties, including metal, paint, plate surface vibration wear-resistant testing machine, coating materials, textiles, leather, rubber and so on. The main reason for this sharp reduction in production is that polyester bottles, metal cans and paper containers have occupied the original market share of glass bottles. For the market, the real competitor is not the glass bottle manufacturing industry itself, but other types of packaging products. Although it is difficult to accurately estimate how many glass bottles consumption will decrease in the future, Japan has developed ultra light glass bottles and spraying technology, which can avoid further reduction of market share

figure using an electronic universal testing machine to continuously stretch rubber products with or without cuts at the specified speed. 2 we can see the current situation of Japanese glass bottles and the comparison with other overseas markets. The bottom color chart shows the total annual output of glass bottles in various countries. The United States has an annual output of 7million tons, ranking first in the world. However, according to the per capita output, gbt4338 (1) 995 metal materials high temperature tensile test European countries are higher than the United States and Japan, and they use more glass bottles than other packaging products. Japan's per capita output is very low, only 1//6 of that of European countries; Even in 1990, when the output was the highest, it was only 1/2 of that of European countries. From the output of glass containers in Japan in the past four years shown in Figure 3, it can be seen that the output of small glass bottles used for energy drinks is the largest. This is because the original energy drinks can only be sold in pharmaceutical stores. After the amendment of the law, they can also be sold in convenience stores and station malls. Driven by this broad market growth, the sales of energy drinks will undoubtedly continue to grow
