Glass Market in Europe 2015-2019

About glass

Glass is produced from raw materials such as high-quality sand (silica), limestone, soda ash, and cullet (crushed recycled glass). The glass industry is mainly divided into three sectors: flat glass manufacturing, container glass manufacturing, and fiberglass production. This industry (in comparison to other commercial and industrial sectors) was influenced by economic crisis in the last decade as it depends on the financial condition and growth of sectors such as construction and automotive.
