Global Float Glass Market: Key Trends

The global float glass market is characterized by the presence of the following restraints, drivers, and opportunities.

Superior Aesthetics and High Demand for Safety to Widen Scope of Use of Float Glass

One of the important growth factor for the global float glass market is the rising disposable income of the people, particularly in the developing countries. With increased money in hand, consumers are more inclined to spend on premium products, such as use of flat glass in architecture and interior decoration. Constant technological progress is making way for replacement of the traditional sheet and plate facilities, due to availability of enhanced safety elements, such as integration of interlayer foil between sheets, as it is capable of holding it in place even during a breakage. Such properties are likely to bolster growth of the global float glass market over the tenure of analysis.

In addition to that, a rise in the utilization of the glass assists in higher transmission of light, thereby diminishing the heat gain for all the architectural applications. This factor is estimated to facilitate increased adoption of float glass in the architecture field. Furthermore, there has been increased concern about environment and global warming, which has facilitated use of float glass because it helps in obtaining Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) certificate for commercial and residential construction. Superior aesthetics and hassle-free application has resulted in its increased adoption by the construction sector.
