Europe Flat glass Market Introduction:

Given the negative impacts on human health and the environment of present construction goods, the consumption of glass as a construction product is increasing. The European economy is, therefore projected to be powered by enhanced infrastructure glass consumption.

The floating technique generates more than 90% of single glass, leading to a significant reduction in cost and enhanced efficiency compared with the spun process. It's the favourite manufacturing technique for the flat glass market.

The growth of the flat glass market is caused by increasing infrastructure developments all over the region. The construction industry is growing significantly, especially in emerging nations. Indoors and outdoors, flat glass is used for the reasons of architecture. The use of furniture, doors, doors and obstacles is evident. Taking into account the harmful health and environment impacts of present construction goods, their usage is increasing as a construction material.

Flat glass Market value and expected growth:

It is projected that the flat crystal industry will expand from USD 108.51 billion in 2019 to USD 180.79 billion in 2024, at a pace of 9.33 per cent.

The growth of the European flat-glass market is anticipated to flourish in the coming years, owing to a growing automotive industry and building industry. More excellent renewable energy government investment is also contributing to the demand for flat-glass solar applications. The emphasis is increasingly being on constructing energy-efficient buildings and renovating existing infrastructure. Countries are also moving for multiple applications to renewable solar energy. All these factors are projected to have a favourable impact on supply and earnings in the region's flat glass sector in the years to come. Since construction and automotive industries are the primary consumers of flat glass, plain glass manufacturers can benefit from profitable growth opportunities in these two sectors, especially in several European economies. 

Factors such as increasing urbanisation, the growth of the housing industry, the use of solar and consumer products further fuel market growth in this vicinity. Since only a few products are required to produce flat glass, others cannot be substituted. The fluctuating raw material prices and weak supply chain governance nevertheless have an essential effect on the overall cost of flat glass, challenging market boom.

Recent developments:

  • As of June 2018, in order to improve their manufacturing capacities in Italy, the Sisecam Group purchased the Manfredonia plant of SangalliVetro. 
  • April 2019-The automobile coating maker Hemmelrath has been purchased by PPG. Hemmelrath is a producer of coatings for the maker of initial automotive machinery (OEMs). 
  • January 2019-The manufacturing capability of flat glass was improved in Colombia by Saint Gobain. It also has announced that its Colombian subsidiary VidrioAndino has acquired a minority stake in Tecnoglass. Under the collaboration, in order to satisfy the increasing requirement for glass in this region, VidrioAndino will create a fresh fleet in Colombia

  • Enhanced implementation base and technological progress.
  • The growing solar industry owing to the increasing reliance on renewable energy sources.

Restraints of Flat glass market can be –

  • High initial cost of installation.
  • Fluctuating prices for raw materials combined with poor chain leadership.

Flat Glass Market segmentation:

The flat glass market is split by item form into tempered goods, laminated goods, basic goods and insulated goods. In 2018, tempered glass accounted for a volume share of 29.4%. It is often used in construction, automotive, electronics and solar panels. It is used in the aviation industry in passenger car windows.

During the forecast period, the most evolving tempered section is anticipated to witness huge demand. Tempered glass is widely used as a security glass in façades, doors, windshields, solar panels and electronic displays.

Market Taxonomy:

  1. By Application
    • Architectural
    • Automotive
  2. By Product
    • Tempered
    • Laminated
    • Basic
    • Insulated

Technological improvements and innovation are witnessed in Europe's Flat glass industry in conjunction with strict public regulations on environmental safety and protection. These laws have permitted producers to use eco-friendly Flat Glass so that demand in the area is constant. The development of the car industry may lead to an increase in car manufacturing, with increasing demand for high-end cars in the region. Hybrid and electric vehicles boost growth on the national economy with the growing implementation of strict regulations and emission regulators, thereby Europe's Flat glass market is anticipated to be prominent. Increasing demand for esthetic apparel supports the growth in the region.
