The favorable economic outlook, coupled with the consistent expansion of the global population and escalating urban migration, has propelled the need for adequate housing and industrial facilities. According to United Nations (UN), 55% of the world population lives in cities and urban areas. The share is projected to reach 68%, with 2.5 billion more people living in urban areas by 2050.

Thus, driving substantial growth for the architectural flat glass market.

The involvement of high temperatures during glass manufacturing makes it a highly energy-consuming process and leads to high prices for the end product. Besides, glass materials are increasingly brittle, heat absorbent, have low impact resistance and heat transparency, and require high maintenance. All these factors, in tandem with the availability of several low-cost product alternatives, may impede the market growth. However, favorable regulatory norms and increasing emphasis on building smart and energy-efficient infrastructure will augment product sales.
