Architectural Flat Glass Market size to value $230 Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: February 2, 2023

Architectural Flat Glass Market size is set to cross USD 230 billion by 2032, as per a recent research report announced by Global Market Insights Inc.


Rising demand for solar panels fueled by the increasing deployment of renewable energy sources will foster an architectural flat glass industry outlook. The accelerating climate change and growing concerns about limiting carbon and GHG emission levels have prompted governments and authorities globally to fasten their clean energy transition. In addition, the looming market uncertainties and energy security concerns caused as a result of sanctions imposed on Russia have triggered the requirement to enhance energy efficiency and boost the adoption of renewables.

According to the International Energy Agency, the annual renewable capacity additions, including wind and solar PV, exhibited unparalleled growth in 2021, rising 6% to almost 295 GW, despite pandemic-driven supply chain constraints, mounting commodity prices for raw materials as well as construction delays. These optimistic scenarios are expected to bolster solar panel sales, which, in consequence, will strengthen the architectural flat glass market share.
