Key Market Trends Of Glass Market

Automotive Industry to Drive the Demand for Flat Glass

  • Flat glass has two major routes for application in the automotive industry, which are original equipment (OE) (supplied to manufacturers for new vehicles) and automotive glass replacement (AGR) product (supplied to the aftermarket for retrofit purposes and damages).
  • According to the OICA, 91.54 million commercial and passenger vehicles were produced globally in 2018. Increasing vehicle penetration, due to the growing spending power of consumers accelerated the flat glass market.
  • Additionally, the significant growth in luxury cars that include double-thick glass in interiors is also one of the factors driving the sales of the automotive flat glass market.
  • Moreover, the increased spending by major automobile players is also driving the market. For instance, Ford is planning to double its EV spending, which has led to the total investment in EVs to USD 90 billion.

Asia-Pacific to be the Fastest Growing Market

  • Owing to the presence of emerging countries, such as India, China, and South Korea, among others, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to become the fastest growing sector in the flat glass market.
  • Moreover, international vendors are shifting their manufacturing base to the Asia-Pacific region. This can be due to the availability of cheap unskilled and skilled workers in the region.
  • Rapid industrialization and urbanization in India, China, and other countries in the Asia-Pacific region, combined with the adoption of smart and energy efficient technology as advanced construction practice have a positive influence on the flat glass demand.
