Solar Demand to Drive Global Flat Glass Market

October 2, 2012

The global flat glass market is expected to grow in value to $73.1 billion in 2012, according to a new report from Visiongain. Continuous growth is expected over the next decade, as increasingly sophisticated customers are demanding more value-added glass products

“The flat glass industry is a growth market for both governments and the private sector alike,” according to the report’s author. “For example, with the rising demand for renewable energy, governments are increasingly playing a role in encouraging solar generation with feed-in tariffs in countries such as Germany, Spain and Italy. Accordingly, a great number of glass companies have stated their intentions to construct manufacturing facilities focused on serving the growing solar energy sector.”
