Some of the major players operating in the global flat glass are

Asahi Glass Co. Ltd, Saint-Gobain SA, Corning Incorporated, Nippon Sheet Glass, and Fuyao Group Glass Industries Co. Ltd. etc.

TechSci Research performed primary as well as exhaustive secondary research for this study. Initially, TechSci research sourced a list of flat glass manufacturers globally. Subsequently, TechSci Research conducted primary research surveys with the identified companies. While interviewing, the respondents were also enquired about their competitors. Through this technique, TechSci Research was able to include manufacturers, distributors and dealers that could not be identified due to the limitations of secondary research. TechSci Research analysed technology, end-use industry & regional presence of all major flat glass manufacturers across the globe.

TechSci Research calculated the market size for the global flat glass using a bottom-up approach, where manufacturers’ value data for technology of (basic float glass, toughened glass, coated glass, laminated glass, extra clear glass & others), flat glass was recorded as well as forecast for the future years was made. TechSci Research sourced these values from industry experts and company representatives, and externally validated through analyzing historical sales data of respective manufacturers to arrive at the overall market size. Various secondary sources such as company annual reports, white papers, investor presentations and financial reports were also used by the TechSci Research.
