World Flat Glass

As Quoted In Industrial Minerals

Global flat glass demand will rise six percent annually through 2014. Gains will be spurred by continuing robust growth in the Asia/Pacific region, as well as by recovery in the building construction and motor vehicle industries of North America and Western Europe. Fabricated flat glass will benefit from rapid growth in more expensive products.

This study analyzes the 6.1 billion square meter world flat glass industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1999, 2004 and 2009, and forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by type (e.g., float glass, fabricated flat glass), market (e.g., nonresidential building construction, residential building construction, OEM motor vehicle, motor vehicle replacement), world region and for 21 major countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry players, including Asahi Glass, Nippon Steel and Saint-Gobain.
