Glass bottle packaging has experienced a long development in China. But as an industry insider, from the distribution of glass bottle enterprises, there are still many unreasonable factors. Of course, the distribution of glass bottle manufacturers and raw materials soda ash, quartz, and fuel coal dependence is high, to choose these minerals relatively concentrated places. However, only from raw materials to consider building factories, we believe that this has not met the needs of the current market development.
At present, the domestic glass bottle enterprises are mainly concentrated in Hebei, Shandong, Jiangsu, Henan, these four places.
Here is a concentration of large and small domestic nearly 70% of the glass bottle enterprises. However, whether from the domestic demand for glass bottles or glass bottles foreign trade market, which is unreasonable in terms of spatial layout. From the domestic market, cosmetics manufacturers are concentrated in Guangdong, Zhejiang southeast coastal areas, but cosmetic glass bottle manufacturers are less distributed in these places. Liquor companies are concentrated in Guizhou, Sichuan, and other places, but the wine glass bottle manufacturers are heavily concentrated in the north. These local manufacturers need to spend a lot of transportation costs to purchase glass bottles, and the procurement process is also very inconvenient. From the point of view of foreign trade, the closer the manufacturers are to the major ports in the eastern region, will be more conducive to various aspects of transportation and so on.
