Research and Markets has recently announced the addition of a new report to their offering. The report provides a detailed analysis of the glass industry in Germany, covering various aspects related to market size in terms of revenue and market segmentation on the basis of major types of glass, such as flat glass, container glass, tableware glass, glass fiber, utility and special glass. The report also includes competitive analysis and profiles of all the major players operating in the industry. The future projections are also included in the report to provide an insight of future prospects for the Germany glass industry.
 
Over the years, flat glass has been one of the dominating segments in the German glass market in terms of revenue generation, followed closely by container glass. Major advancement in the field of technology and production of innovative glass products has set a path of growth for the German glass industry in the coming years, according to “Germany Glass Industry Outlook 2018 - Growing Demand for Flat Glass to Foster Growth,” a recent report available from Research and Markets. The contribution of the container glass industry, on the other hand, declined in 2011 from 23.2% in 2009 to 19.2% in 2011. This decline in the production can be attributed to the availability of alternative packaging materials, such as plastics, mainly polyethylene terephthalate (PET), metals (steel and aluminum) and laminated cartons.
 
The German glass industry is a highly fragmented market with more than 400 domestic and international players. Some of the major players in the market include Ardagh Group, Osram Licht AG, Schott AG, Gerresheimer, Saint-Gobain, Wiegand Glas, Heinz-Glas GmbH, Pilkington Deutschland AG and others.
 
The future of German glass industry is expected to be favorable, as the use of glass as a specialized material in various industries has gained momentum. Changing needs and advanced technology has opened doors for alternate usage of glass beyond just decorative and storage purposes. The improving economy of Germany and other European countries has led to an increase in the demand for glass from various related industries. The revenue generated by the German glass industry is projected to be $12.4 billion in 2014.
