Glass Product Manufacturing in the US
Over the five years to 2018, revenue for the Glass Product Manufacturing industry is expected to increase. Sustained growth in construction activity, overall growth in new car sales and growing consumer demand for wine, spirits and other perishables that are commonly packaged in glass containers have all driven industry growth. Additionally, over the five years to 2018, industry operators have pursued mergers and acquisitions to take advantage of economies of scale in the manufacturing process. Over the five years to 2023, revenue is expected to continue increasing as downstream building markets continue to grow. However, growth will still be limited by persistent product substitution and import penetration.
Companies in this industry produce a wide range of glass products by melting silica sand or cullet and fabricating purchased glass. The industry includes four segments: flat glass manufacturing, including laminated glass; pressed or blown glass and glassware; glass container manufacturing, including bottles and jars; and product manufacturing from purchased glass, which includes lighting, mirrors, architectural glass and electronic glassware.
