Flat Glass Market- Global Industry Analysis Outlook and Forecast (2024-2030)

Flat Glass Market size was valued at US$ 298.17 Bn. in 2023 and the total revenue is expected to grow at 3.6 % through 2024 to 2030, the Flat Glass market is reaching nearly US$ 381.93 Bn in 2030.

Flat Glass Market Overview:

Flat glass is often used to make windows, doors, mirrors, and solar panels. It is also known as sheet or plate glass. Sand, soda ash, and silica are melted into a liquid and then distributed to the desired thickness. To obtain the required result, the molten liquid is cooled. To assure structural robustness, flat glass is created by regulated heat and chemical reactions. Despite this, once manufactured, flat glass is extremely adaptable and customizable. A flat glass plant is expensive to build: Pilkington predicted that a new facility would cost between €70 million and €200 million in 2019. It is built to run 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. It has a campaign life of up to 15 years and operates 365 days a year. Plants, on average, do not become lucrative until they have a profit margin of more than 70% Use of capacityFlat Glass MarketTo know about the Research Methodology :- Request Free Sample Report

Flat Glass Market Dynamics:

The largest end-user sector is the building and construction industry. Over the last few years, various architectural advancements have boosted product demand. The material utilised in these applications has a number of benefits, including light transmission, absorption, and refraction; weather resistance; rust resistance; dust resistance; cost and energy efficiency; greater insulation; a variety of colour possibilities; and the ability to be shaped into any shape. The demand for the luxury buildings has increased as a result of rising disposable income and a growing desire for aesthetic appeal in interiors, which is expected to support market growth. Greystar Real Estate Partners, LLC, for example, partnered CPP Investments and Cyrela in the development of the Brazilian Multifamily Property Sector in So Paulo in September 2022. Greystar is making its foray into the expanding Brazilian rental property sector with this investment. The global market was obstructed in 2022 due to the pandemic, which resulted in obligatory factory shutdowns, followed by tight restrictions requiring enterprises to function at minimum capacities, interrupting the demand-supply cycle. The pandemic had a negative impact on the sales of several glass makers. For example, in the first half of 2022, Fuyao Glass Industry Group Co.'s U.S. subsidiary reported a financial loss of 92.1 million yuan (USD 13.4 million)

Recycling of Flat Glass -

There are two sources of flat glass cullet. Production cullet is formed at the cold end of the manufacturing process, such as on cutting or pressurising equipment. Because this cullet is so identical to the original flat glass, the processor can nearly put it back into the flat glassmaker. This is no longer as simple once coatings, lamination, or other functionalities have been applied. It gets even more challenging with architectural elements, which are the second most common source of flat glass cullet. Flat glass from the automotive industry, façade glass, and window elements are all putting a lot of pressure on recycling organisations. Laminate glasses are made up of a wide range of materials, from PVB foils and liquid crystal layers to metals. Simultaneously, there are few procedures that allow these glass products to be gathered and prepared in a traceable manner on a national or European level. Cullet makes up 26% of the raw materials needed to make flat glass in Europe, according to the latest estimates. According to current estimates, the present potential for cullet utilisation is limited to a maximum of 37 % due to technological, infrastructural, and economic constraints.

Flat Glass Market 1Flat Glass Market Segments:

The Flat Glass market is sub-segmented into Product and Application Based on Product, the market is sub-segmented into Basic, Tempered, Laminated, Insulated, and others. In terms of volume, the insulated product segment dominated the global market, accounting for more than 44.0 % in 2023. The demand for curtain walls, storefronts, overhead glazing, non-vision places, and commercial and operable windows is expected to continue to drive the segment's growth. Manufacturers have been forced to expand their manufacturing capacities in response to rising demand. Pilkington IGP, for example, showed interest in expanding its production unit in Ostroleka, Poland, to meet increased demand for highly specialised goods in the architectural and construction industries in February 2022. Tempered glass is another important product category, with uses in cookware, mobile phone screens, architectural elements, shower doors, and windows, among others. The demand for tempered products is increasing, hence production has increased. For example, Tomakk Glass Partners announced the opening of a tempered glass production factory in Shreveport, Louisiana, in August 2022 to meet the growing demand from commercial, residential, and architectural applications. Based on Application, the market is sub-segmented into Architectural, Automotive and Others. In 2022, the architectural application category accounted for more than 72 % of total revenue. Due to increased building activities and infrastructural advancements as a result of fast urbanisation and a growing population around the world, the category will rise at a steady CAGR from 2024 to 2030. As a result, the expanding construction industry is expected to boost product demand. The product is used in car windows, doors, windshields, side panels, sunroofs, and lighting in the automotive industry. Due to a drop in global vehicle manufacturing, the automotive application industry has seen moderate growth in recent years. However, rising demand for electric vehicles (EVs), as well as an increase in the number of traffic accidents, is expected to drive product usage in automotive applications.

Flat Glass Market Regional Insights:

In 2023, Asia Pacific dominated the market, accounting for about 61.0 % of worldwide revenue. Over the forecast period, infrastructure upgrades in the region's growing countries are likely to drive market growth. Southeast Asia is also one of the developing regional markets, with countries such as China and Japan beginning to invest there. Between 2000 and 2019, Japan sponsored over USD 230 billion in projects, while China invested approximately USD 155 billion in Southeast Asia's infrastructure. North America's construction activities were hampered, particularly in the first half of 2023; however, the market in the United States saw a small recovery in the second half of 2023, owing to an increase in residential construction activity. According to the US Census Bureau, the number of new privately-owned housing units completed in the Southern United States increased by 6.7 percent from 2022 to 2023. This growing tendency is predicted to continue in the following years, resulting in increased product demand. The Middle East and Africa are likely to be among the market's fastest-growing areas. However, due to the epidemic, the region's growth slowed in 2023. The regional market, on the other hand, is likely to soon rebound. For example, a Dubai-based investment bank set aside USD 1 billion in December 2022 to fund ongoing development projects in the Middle East and Africa. This is encouraging news for the region's overall market. The objective of the report is to present a comprehensive analysis of the global Flat Glass market to the stakeholders in the industry.
