Post Time:Sep 18,2012Classify:Industry NewsView:99

Visiongain's analysis indicates that the global flat glass market will reach a value of $73.1bn in 2012, as the demand rises for building glass and automotive glass in emerging markets; new technological developments also create new and increasing applications of flat glass thus driving the market.

The global flat glass market is therefore forecast by Visiongain to record continuous growth over the next decade, as increasingly sophisticated customers are demanding more added valued glass products which will contribute to the growth of the flat glass market. This will drive significant growth in the next decade.

The Visiongain author of The Flat Glass Market 2012-2022 report commented that 'The flat glass industry is a growth market for both governments and the private sector alike. For example, with the rising demand for renewable energy, governments are increasingly playing a role in encouraging solar generation with feed-in tariffs in countries such as Germany, Spain and Italy. Accordingly, a great number of glass companies have stated their intentions to construct manufacturing facilities focused on serving the growing solar energy sector.'

Visiongain provides forecasts for the period 2012-2022 in terms of value (US$) for the global flat glass market value, production (mt) and consumption (mt), as well as for 3 submarkets of the flat glass market.
