A 7.2% GAGR is Predicted to the Float Glass Market (2019-2026), Segmented by Type (Tinted floats, Clear float glass), Application (Automotive, Construction, Solar Glass, Others), and region (NA, EU, and etc.)

Float Glass is manufactured by floating molten glass on a bed of molten metals, such as tin, lead and various low melting point alloys. Float glass is a sheet of glass and with the molten glass method, the resultant sheet possesses a good flat surface and uniform thickness. Most soda-lime glasses are float glass and some quantities of flat panel display glass and specialty borosilicate are also made by the float glass process. Common raw materials used for the manufacturing of float glass are soda ash (sodium carbonate), sand, limestone, salt cake (sodium sulfate) and dolomite. Other ingredients may be used as refining, coloring agents or for required changes in the chemical and physical properties of the glass.

Market Data Analysis:

The Float Glass market is projected to be valued at USD 9,648 million in 2019 and is anticipated to generate revenue of USD 15,696 million by the end of 2026, progressing at a GAGR of 7.2% between 2019 and 2026. Float Glass global market is significantly rising across the globe on the back of the robust growth of the building and construction sector in developing countries. Additionally, increasing urbanization, rise in the real estate sector, usage of solar products, and product innovation are some of the factors that boost the growth of the Float Glass market. On the contrary, the Float Glass market can be obstructed due to the fluctuating raw material prices.

Geographically, the Float Glass global market is divided into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. Asia-Pacific was the major revenue generating region in 2018 with a share of 51.20% and is expected to maintain dominance in the coming years, owing to the existence of emerging countries such as India, China, and Korea. As growing construction and infrastructure development activities, increasing automotive production, and rising installations of solar panels, China and India are the major markets in the Asia-Pacific market. Europe and North America accounted for a market share of 22.10% and 19.56% respectively in 2018.
