United States, Rockville MD, Aug. 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global flat glass market is anticipated to reach US$ 445 Bn by the end of the 2022-2032 forecast period, inclining at a CAGR of 4.5%, projects a recently concluded study by Fact.MR. Growth of the market is inextricably linked with developments in the global construction and power generation industries respectively. Flat glass is especially deployed in solar power generation.

During the historical period 2015 to 2021, demand for flat glass products surged at a CAGR of roughly 4%, concluding at US$ 274 Bn. Prospects declined considerably during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, attributed to the downsizing of the global construction industry. Postponement or cessation of key infrastructure development activities negatively impacted flat glass demand. However, since 2021, prospects have begun to rebound, as restrictions on commercial activities ease.

The market is expected to grow over the forecast period with the growing number of solar energy installations across the globe and the increasing penetration of glass technology in both residential and non-residential constructions. Building and infrastructure development are directly related to the demand for flat glass. Recent changes in building architecture have increased the use of flat glass on roofs and facades to maximize natural daylight.
