Flat Glass Market by Technology (Float, Rolled, Sheet), Product Type (Simple Float Glass, Toughened , Coated, Laminated, Extra Clear),End-Use Industry (Construction & Infrastructure, Automotive & Transportation, Solar Energy) and Region - Global Forecast to 2022

“Flat glass market projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.30% during forecast period”
The flat glass market is projected to reach USD 142.05 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.30% between 2017 and 2022. The major factor driving the growth of the market is the increasing demand for flat glass from the construction & infrastructure industry. Flat glass products have extensive applications for safety, decoration, security, privacy, and energy-saving purpose. However, energy efficient manufacturing is a challenge for flat glass manufacturers.

“The laminated glass segment is projected to be the fastest-growing product type segment of the flat glass market during the forecast period”
Laminated glass provides advantages, such as durability, high-performance, impact resistance and at the same time preserves the aesthetic appearance of glass products. Laminated glass provides a solution to many architectural design problems and can offer protection from the effects of disasters, such as a hurricane, earthquake, and bomb blasts. Laminated glass is increasingly being used in the automotive & transportation end-use industry.
