Published on Aug 23, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Construction Glass Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, finds that the global construction glass market size reached US$ 96.87 Billion by 2021. Construction glass refers to a translucent material used to coat windows, glass doors, and transparent walls. It has various properties, such as thermal insulation, waterproofing, and energy conservation. Some of the most commonly used construction glasses are sheet, float, laminated, shatterproof, toughened glass, wired, and tinted. In recent years, construction glass has gained traction due to its lightweight, cost-effectiveness, high strength, and environment-friendliness, and water, chemical and electricity resistance. As a result, construction glass is extensively adopted as a sustainable alternative to conventional building materials, such as wood, bricks, and polycarbonate (PC).

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
