UK Glassware: Market Report Available

Research and Markets recently announced the addition of "Glassware Market Report 2004" to its offering. The new report provides an analysis of the UK glassware industry, including an executive summary and information on market size; industry background; competitor analysis; strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats; buying behavior; current issues; the global market; forecasts; and company profiles. The sectors covered are soda-lime glass, crystal glass and heat-resistant glass. Household penetration of glassware is high, with 75.8% of UK households possessing at least some glassware. Replacement is fairly frequent, keeping the market buoyant, but the availability of cheap, functional glassware means that value growth of retail sales is limited. At the other end of the price spectrum, demand for fine crystal is erratic with fewer people now seeing crystal stemware as relevant to their lifestyles. Nevertheless, attempts to modernize the image of crystal ware by introducing contemporary designer collections have met with some success.
