Beverage sales by container type in Lithuania
Non-refillable containers have replaced refillables as the most prevalent beverage packaging type in Lithuania’s beverage market. Whereas in 2000 non-refillables accounted for only 1/3 of all beverage sales, in 2015 they account for almost 80%. This is the result of a more than 3-fold increase in sales. At the same time that non-refillables have seen their market share increase, refillables have seen their sales drop from almost 300 million units to less than 150 million units.
