  • 2. View Report DetailsExecutive SummaryFlat glass has played an important role in not only energy conservation but also as vital component in various products andprocesses in the field of energy and other industries. The global flat glass demand is projected to increase at a CAGR of about2.8% during 2012-2015 on the back of expected worldwide economic growth, government stimulus and increased infrastructuralconstruction activity, coupled with the growth in automobile industry.Flat glass finds maximum application in building construction industry, with a further significant portion used in automotiveapplications. In addition, the use of flat glass in other specialist areas, though trivial at present, is expected to account for asignificant share of the global market demand in near future. Region-wise, China, Europe, and North America represent the largestmarket for flat glass. However, rising economic affluence in the developing countries will continue to provide a boost to demand forflat glass in these regions.Global concerns towards acutely deteriorating environment and heavy depletion of natural energy sources have compelled themodern society to search for means to meet modern world’s energy requirements. With development of new technologies, one ofthe major trends worldwide is to make energy efficient buildings in an effort to conserve energy using flat glass as a major structuralcomponent. Another trend being observed is the enhanced use of low emissivity glass available with many technical functions forconservation of heat. Similarly, solar control glass is being used for utilizing solar energy as an alternative source for energygeneration.Global economic growth and new technological developments have created new and increased applications of flat glass thusdriving its market. Furthermore, there has been a notable surge in the consumption of flat glass to meet the enhanced demand of agrowing automobile industry. More and more countries are passing energy related legislations which necessitates the use of flatglass in greater proportions than ever for the purposes of better energy utilization and conservation. New advancements in PVtechnology have greatly widened the use of PV system, subsequently resulting in greater use of flat glass.The global flat glass market is largely dominated by four major manufacturers, namely, AGC, Saint-Gobain, NSG, and Guardian.The capital intensive nature of the industry has made the world flat glass market highly consolidated.The report analyzes the global flat glass market, with focus on regional markets including Europe, Japan, ASEAN, North America,South America, China and former Soviet Union. The report discusses factors driving the global demand for flat glass, as well as therecent prevailing trends in the global flat glass industry. It profiles the four largest players, AGC Group, Saint Goblin, NSG Groupand Guardian.
