The market for flat glass has seen substantial growth due to factors such as rising product demand in automotive and construction industries. Also, increased knowledge across different industries offers an enormous market opportunity for key players in the flat glass market. With increasing urbanisation, rising infrastructure investment, and rapid growth in developing economies around the world, the flat glass market is seeing increased demand. Glass is widely used in the construction industry for windows, facades, doors, interior partitions, and railings, among other building components, and in the automotive industry for windscreens, side and rear-side glazing, backlights, and sunroofs, among other components. The construction industry is expected to develop at a healthy pace during the forecast period, thanks to the booming construction sector. The demand for decorative glasses with digital print technology is increasing as people place a greater emphasis on the aesthetic features of a home or workplace. Consumers are willing to pay more for items that are both high in quality and attractive to the eye. Flat glass is favoured for making decorative glasses because of its flexibility and other characteristics, which is contributing to the industry’s development. Furthermore, the increasing demand for value-added goods, such as vehicle glazing in the automotive sector, is expected to boost the industry’s growth prospects. Rising customer concerns about the environment and the energy demand are driving a transition toward renewable energy sources, resulting in increased adoption of solar panels. Flat glass is being more widely used in solar-energy applications, such as photovoltaic and solar thermal panels, which is boosting the industry. Furthermore, governments around the world are supporting the use of renewable energy by subsidising their construction. As a result, the global flat glass industry is being propelled forward by the rising solar energy market, as well as government incentives for the deployment of renewable energy sources.
