Background:

The global flat glass industry is expected to reach an estimated $66.6 billion by 2019. The major drivers of flat glass are growth in automotive and construction industries. Growing demand of energy efficient glasses has encouraged OEMs to switch to insulated glazing from single glazing units. Players such as NSG and Asahi Glass Co. Limited have introduced solar control glazing and lightweight glazing which are projected to give new shape to the glass market in the next decade. Despite various challenges, the market for flat glass is expected to grow over the next five years.

Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has analyzed the global flat glass industry by segments and region, and has come up with comprehensive research report “Global Flat Glass Industry 2014-2019: Trend, Forecast, and Opportunity Analysis.” This report provides an analysis of the global flat glass industry including analysis of the market trend, competitive landscape, company profiles, mergers and acquisitions, emerging trend, and key drivers of industry growth.
