GLASS MARKET: DRIVERS & RESTRAINTS

Market Driver:

  • Rising Demand from Building and Construction Industry

The rapid urbanization is one of the key driving factors of the global glass market. In the construction & building industry glass is widely used as insulation material, structural component, external glazing material, cladding material. It is also used to make delicate-looking fenestrations on facades as well as conventional windows. In the last few years, the global construction activities are growing at a rapid pace. This growth can be attributed to, rising population and increasing per capita income in the emerging economies such as China & India. Shifting focus towards the construction of energy-efficient buildings and renovation and expansion of existing infrastructure. According to United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), today, around 58% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, and it is expected to increase to 6% in 2050. This rapid increase will take place mainly in developing countries. Although Asia & Africa both are less urbanized than other regions, they have the fastest urban growth rates globally. Africa’s urban population is projected to jump from 42 % today to 56 % by 2050, and Asia’s from 49% to 64%.

Thus, the glass found numbers of application in the building and construction industry, and growing urbanization has is expected to boost the global glass market during the forecast period.  

  • Increasing Demand from Automotive Industry  

The automotive sector is expected to grow at a moderate pace in the coming years. The glass used in automobiles vastly differs from the architectural glass. The automotive industry is one of the leading consumers of the glass followed by the building and construction. In the automotive industry, glass found application in headlights, taillights, windows, windshield, and many others. The automotive industry in Asia-Pacific is expected to witness significant demand for automotive glass, due to rapid growth of the automotive sector in this region. For Instance, in 2018, global electrical vehicle sales passed the 3 million units, among them more than 50% vehicles were sold in the Chine. Moreover, India is the seventh-largest manufacturer of commercial vehicles.

Thus, the increasing automotive industry has expected to boost the global automotive glass market during the forecast period.
