According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Asia Pacific Flat Glass Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028," the Asia Pacific flat glass market size reached US$ 61.0 Billion in 2022. Flat glass is produced by preparing formulations that involve network formers, fluxing agents, property modifiers, fining agents, and colorants to dictate the physical properties and characteristics of the formed glass. It spreads out and floats on the tin surface, which results in a uniform and flat sheet of glass. It has a higher magnesium oxide and sodium oxide content as compared to container glass and lower silica, calcium oxide, and aluminum oxide content. It serves as a primary material for windows in buildings, including residential and commercial structures. It is widely used in glass doors, partitions, mirrors, tabletops, shelves, and display cases across the Asia Pacific region.
Asia Pacific Flat Glass Market Trends:
Flat glass is employed in the construction industry as a primary material for constructing windows, doors, facades, skylights, partitions, and glass curtain walls. This, coupled with increasing construction activities in residential and commercial areas, represents one of the major factors augmenting the market growth in the Asia Pacific region. Moreover, flat glass finds application in the automotive industry for manufacturing various components, such as windshields, side windows, sunroofs, and panoramic roofs, to enhance safety and impact resistance. This, along with the rising sales of luxury vehicles, is favoring the growth of the market in the region. In addition, there is an increase in the use of flat glass to protect the screens of consumer electronics like smartphones, laptops, television, and computer desktops. The growing demand for consumer electronics is also influencing the market positively in the region. Besides this, the rising adoption of flat glass in areas prone to windstorms, tornadoes, hurricanes, and other severe weather conditions due to the growing instances of natural disasters is creating a positive outlook for the market in the region. Looking forward, the market is anticipated to reach US$ 89.6 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 6.74% during 2023-2028.
