Positive result for the container glass sector in 2013

The growth trend that was evident in the third quarter of 2013 consolidated in the fourth quarter, enabling the container glass industry to close the year with a positive result.    Container glass sales based on tonnage increased by a total of 0.4 percent between 2012 and 2013.

While domestic sales remained at exactly the previous year´s level, foreign sales increased by 1.5 percent. The highest growth in sales of the year were recorded in the month of April (up 11.6 percent), making a positive contribution to the overall result.

This growth trend was partly weather-related, because from mid-April 2013 onwards there was a substantial temperature increase and summer-like weather, according to the German Meteorological Service (Deutscher Wetterdienst). Not surprisingly, the warm summer months of July and September also generated high sales (plus 7.3 and 6.8 percent respectively), as usual, and the late summer was reflected in the figures. However, sales also increased by a substantial 6.8 percent in January.
