Demand for flat glass in China is forecast to increase 7.9 percent annually through 2013. Float glass will grow rapidly at the expense of lower quality sheet glass. High value fabricated glass (e.g., safety glass, insulating glass) will increasingly be used by consumers in place of lower value unfabricated glass.
This study analyzes the 1.9 billion square meter flat glass industry in China. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by flat glass type (e.g., float glass, sheet glass, safety glass, insulating glass, mirrors), market (e.g., architectural, motor vehicle, electronic display) and geographic region.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 32 industry participants, including CSG, Fuyao Group Glass and Guangdong Fu Rui Industrial.
