Today, low cost production in the glass industry means saving energy, using resources more effectively, responding more flexibly to market requirements and binding less capital. This is getting harder as markets are growing closer and competition is getting fierce. However, there are opportunities for new markets in Eastern Europe and Asia for new products such as ultra-thin glass for flat screens, and mobile phones.
Flat glass is extensively used in construction industry replacing conventional bricks, wood and stone. Growth in infrastructural spending for building airports and residential buildings, coupled with strict amendments regarding the use of ecofriendly building materials, will drive industry growth. Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of flat glass industry, include increased use of advanced nanotechnology in flat glass, solar control glazing for automotive and building glasses, lightweight glazing glass.
Technological developments in terms of energy harnessing, coupled with superior properties including recyclability and sustainability, is expected to power the market growth. However, the availability of raw material and price volatility may affect the supply demand scenario in the market. Rising R&D investment into the introduction of advanced, specialized and customized products in the market is expected to lead the market growth in future.
