Increasing Use of Glass in Interior and Exterior Buildings to Bring $8.8 Billion in Flat Glass Market Revenue by 2032 | Deep Data Insights from Future Market Insights, Inc. – GlobeNewswire | Wonder Mind Kids

NEWARK, Delaware, Oct. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global flat glass market is expected to reach US$8.8 billion by 2032, with the market growing at a standard CAGR of 5.2% from 2022 to 2032. Starting at $5 billion in 2021, the target market will reach an estimated $5.3 billion in 2022. The increased demand for durable, energy efficient and affordable building products is fueling the growth of the flat glass market. An increasing shift in consumer preference for glass in interior and exterior buildings for aesthetic reasons further adds to the growth of the target market over the forecast period.

The flat glass market is expected to see an increase in its international sales due to the increasing demand for renewable energy around the world. This is because flat glass is typically used in photovoltaic modules, E-glass constructions and solar panels. Therefore, increasing demand for renewable energy is also driving demand for flat glass. This material is increasingly replacing traditional materials such as brick, stone and wood. In addition, insulated flat glass is transparent and recyclable, which reduces pollution and also increases comfort for building occupants.

Another factor driving the market growth is the booming automotive industry. Tempered glass is increasingly being used by automotive manufacturers for its shatterproof properties, which can help prevent serious injury and potential life-threatening injuries in the event of an accident. Other aspects, such as the application of nanotechnology to manufacture lightweight glass and solar control modules, as well as increasing urbanization and rising disposable incomes will drive the flat glass market over the forecast period.

“An increase in infrastructure spending for the development of green and eco-friendly buildings will complement global flat glass market growth over the forecast period,” says an FMI analyst.

The central theses:

  • The expanding construction and infrastructure sector is driving the market growth.
  • Fluctuating commodity prices can affect market growth.
  • The expanding residential construction sector will drive the target market in the United States.
  • The Asia-Pacific region is expected to dominate the target market between 2022 and 2032.
  • Infrastructure development in the Asia-Pacific region will drive the flat glass market.
