Beverage sales by container type in Austria
Austria has seen a gradual decrease in the number of beverage containers sold in refillable glass. Although it still holds the most market share in Austria with about 2 billion units sold each year, approximately 500 million fewer refillable glass bottles were sold in 2015 compared to the year 2000. This decline has occurred in parallel to gradual increases in the use of non-refillable PET and metal. Sales of beverages in non-refillable glass and refillable PET have remained fairly steady.
