India Glass Market growth to Grow with a CAGR of 7.64%

Increasing demand from the construction industry and growing demand for electronic displays are major factors driving the growth of the market studied.


According to TechSci Research report, “India Glass Market - By Country, Competition, Forecast and Opportunities, 2019-2029”, The construction industry is the largest consumer of glass in India. The rapid urbanization and rising disposable incomes in India are driving the demand for glass in the construction industry. Glass is used in a variety of construction applications, such as windows, doors, mirrors, and facades. The construction and automotive industries are the most important consuming sectors: almost 80 million square feet of land in India is earmarked for shopping malls. Nowadays, taking climate, safety, sound attenuation, energy conservation and aesthetics into consideration, builders are opting for more glass in their construction. The glass revolution is also taking place in the automotive industry which is predicted to grow following an 8% cut in excise duty on vehicles and the easy availability of flexible automobile loans.

It goes without saying that the rapid increase in demand during the 1990s, in addition to provoking a cutback in exports, charmed some international firms which now are the major producers of float glass. Close to them there are about 27 domestic companies which have been forced to expand their capacities and diversify into new areas in order to remain competitive.

Totally, the flat glass industry grew by about 80% between 2000 and 2006, resulting in a compound annual growth rate of 10.1%. The per capita consumption of glass, which was 0.41 kg in 1999, reached 0.76% kg in 2006. Anyway, it isn’t all “peaches and roses” in India : problems like the overcapacity of raw glass (and a projected surplus of processed glass), Chinese competition (in spite of anti-dumping duties) and the lack of codes of standards threaten Indian glass industry. As far as overcapacity concerned, analysts say that the supply will far exceed demand at least until 2009. Excess capacity, increased competition and the development of a regulatory framework are the real future challenges for the Indian glass industry.

“The Indian market is increasingly demanding high-performance glass that can withstand harsh operating conditions and offer better insulation and energy efficiency. This is leading to the growing demand for tempered glass, laminated glass, and coated glass.

Tempered glass is a type of glass that is heated to a high temperature and then rapidly cooled. This process makes the glass stronger and more resistant to breakages. Tempered glass is commonly used in applications such as shower doors, safety glass, and tabletops. Laminated glass is a type of glass that is made by sandwiching a layer of plastic between two layers of glass. This makes the glass more durable and resistant to breakage. Laminated glass is commonly used in applications such as car windshields, bulletproof glass, and architectural glazing.

Coated glass is a type of glass that has been coated with a thin layer of metal or other material. This coating gives the glass additional properties, such as energy efficiency, solar reflection, and self-cleaning. Coated glass is commonly used in applications such as windows, doors, and conservatories,” said Mr. Karan Chechi, Research Director with TechSci Research, a research-based management consulting firm.
