Market Dynamics


Change in the consumer lifestyle

Consumer lifestyles are always changing. Consumer habits and values are influenced by existing and new trends, as well as the constantly shifting demographic mix, global cultural upheavals, and rapid technological advancements. Businesses can capitalize on new opportunities by gaining a thorough understanding of customer preferences as a result of evolving behaviors and beliefs. In recent years, consumers of all generations have placed a greater emphasis on branded products in many aspects of their everyday lives.


High energy consuming

Moreover, it is brittle and stiff, and when stressed, it breaks easily with minor effort. Glass shards can cause severe injuries to the body. Thus, this is expected to hamper the market growth over the forecast period.
