Europe glass crusher market forecast by Fact.MR

Market share analysis of glass crusher based on capacity and countries is provided in a nutshell in the above image. Under the capacity segment, impact crushers are dominating with 67.0% of the market share in 2023.

“Glass Crushers Facilitate Easy Handling”

Glass crushers have distinct dimensions and attributes. Using a glass crusher helps limit the filling of glass waste in landfills, as a significant amount is recycled. Schools and restaurants can use glass crushers to store scrap glass until it is picked up by recycling staff.

A glass crusher can efficiently crush 2,000 bottles or 1 ton of waste in a small space. Collecting waste glass and transporting it to a landfill is also a difficult and costly task. A glass crusher can solve this difficult collection and transportation process. Placing a glass crusher on a lower floor or near a garbage dump will make it easier to handle.

“Increasing Awareness about Environmental Protection”

Increasing concerns regarding waste management combined with increasing challenges related to waste disposal are expected to drive demand for waste recycling over the coming years. Glass recycling results in less raw material consumption, extended plant life, reduced emissions, and higher energy savings.

Natural resources are limited and diminishing at a fast rate due to extensive use. To make one ton of new glass, 1.2 tons of raw material are used. This making process also creates pollution and extra waste. Recycled glass saves 670 kg of carbon dioxide with every ton of glass waste. The recycling process reduces pollution and the unnecessary use of raw materials.

“HighOperational cost can impact the overall demand scenario”

High operating costs of glass crushers can negatively impact market growth as crushers have varying operating costs. Among all the categories, impact crushers are among the most expensive glass crushers.

Due to these expenses, sole proprietorships frequently lack the funding to acquire and maintain machinery. The challenge for players is to lessen the operational cost of their products while increasing efficiency and efficacy. Hence, manufacturers need to keep in mind the cost deduction of such machines to make them affordable for end users.

Is the application of glass cullets leading market growth?

Glass and natural sand are both made up of silicone dioxide; the difference is that glass is a non-crystalline and amorphous form of silicon dioxide and natural sand is quartz crystals of silicon dioxide. The benefit of glass cullets is that they don’t have sharp edges and are thus easy to handle.

Moreover, glass sand can be used as clay for bricks, and for foam glass. There are several uses of glass sand and cullets made from recycled glass through glass crushers. In various applications, glass is superior to natural sand. As such, increasing demand for cullets and glass sand is driving the growth of the glass crusher market.
