Post Time:May 20,2009Classify:Industry NewsView:363

China International Exhibition for Glass Technology 2009 (All in Glass 2009) held its press conference after its debuts in glasstec 2008, at 1pm May 14 th 2009 in meeting room M22, E3 Hall, Shanghai New International Exposition Centre. The organizers and Guangdong Glass Trade Association presented the upcoming exhibition to the audience about its trailblazing theme, highlights and latest market information.

All in Glass China 2009 is co-organized by China Foreign Trade Centre and Messe Düsseldorf China Ltd., and undertaken by China Foreign Trade Guangzhou Exhibition Corporation and Messe Düsseldorf China Ltd. It is the only regional exhibition in China supported by Glasstec - the world’s No.1 glass event. With the slogan “Keep in touch”, All in Glass China 2009 will be staged from November 25th to 27th, 2009, at China Import and Export Fair Complex, Guangzhou, PR China, basing on its first success in Nov, 2007. All in Glass is always taking advantage of the mature operation mode of Glasstec and the global marketing networks of China Foreign Trade Centre and Messe Düsseldorf China Ltd.

Chinese glass industry is facing a serious challenge in the current economy downturn. It is widely accepted that the best way for Chinese traditional glass industry manufacturers is to control the production, optimize the structure and reduce the cost. Moreover, a series of governmental stimulus policies will even accelerate the process of industry upgrading.

Highlighted Showcases and Concurrent Forums

All in Glass China 2009 will leverage concurrent forums to provide a professional and techinical platform for the participants to brainstorm best solutions for Chinese glass industry upgrading. For example, there will be 2009 China International Glass Deep Processing High Technology Forum and 2009 Annual Conference of Shenzhen Solor Energy Society, covering the hottest topics like energy saving glass, coated glass, solar PV glass and strengthened glass.

In the exhibition halls, there will be highlited showcases focusing on mid and high end glass deep processing products, techonologies and machinary ranging from solar PV glass, automobile glass and energy saving and enviroment friendly glass.

Guangdong province plays a major role in flat glass manufacturing, glass deep-processing production, glass consumption as well as export of glass and glass products, and occupies an important role in the domestic glass industry. Particularly in the deep processing of glass, Guangdong province has been the forefront of the domestic industry. The main driving force behind Guangdong glass and glass deep-processing industry is the rapid development of the market. In 2008, there was one additional production line of float glass with melting capacity of 900 tons in Guangdong Province. By the end of 2008, annual production capacity of flat glass achieved 78 million weight boxes, of which float glass production capacity was 70 million weight boxes. In 2008, the output of flat glass was 74.88 million weight boxes, accounting for 13.6 percent of national output, output value of flat glass sales came to roughly RMB4.5 billion. Processing of glass in 2008, driven by energy-saving construction developed rapidly, a variety of energy-efficient glass such as Low-E glass, insulating glass made a large scale of development. And 2008 saw the establishment of a lot of hollow glass production lines and 3 Low-E glass production lines.

Good News to Boost Confidence from Governmental Stimulus Policies

At the end of 2008, the Chinese government determined the RMB 4-trillion stimulus investment program and the "Plans for the Restructuring and Revitalization of Ten Pillar Industries ". Although there is no policy of direct support or stimulus plan for the glass industry, since the close linkage to the industrial chain and a wide range of applications, glass industry especially in high-end glass, such as automotive glass, insulating glass as well as the glasses with the feature of energy saving and environmental protection will greatly benefit.

Meanwhile, the stimulus programs also enlarge the demand for deep-processed glass products. According to statistics, the actual productivity of photovoltaic products only meets 60% of the total demand in 2007, leaving a large domestic market gap. What’s more, in the RMB 4-trillion economic rejuvenation program, Chinese government plans to put around 45% of the total to railways, highways, airports, urban and rural power grids. Statistics from the Civil Aviation Administration of China show that among the RMB 4-trillion program to stimulate investment in the economy, the investment in airport construction in 2009 will reach RMB 200 billion. Moreover, China´s Energy Saving Law will be in full implementation, with the building energy conservation to be an important energy-saving promotion target, and thus the energy-saving glass will be in great demand. China has become the world´s fourth largest auto glass producer and the automobile industry output in 2010 will account for 7% to 8% of the manufacturing industry. In January, China´s domestic sales of passenger cars reached 647,600, 0.5 percent growth compared with December last year. With such great market demand for automobile safety glass products which complement the development of automobile industry, it will secure a broad market prospect.

As the renowned trade exhibition in South China, All in Glass China 2009 will provide an ideal trade and business platform to the exhibitors and visitors. The exhibition will make the most of all the resources, insights and advantages to enhance Chinese glass industry upgrading and realize the sustainable development.
