Glass Product Manufacturing in the US
Over the five years to 2017, revenue for the Glass Product Manufacturing industry is expected to increase. This recent growth reflects a continued rebound from recessionary lows, as renewed construction activity and consumer spending led to an accelerated increase in demand for glass products. Rebounding construction activity, increasing new car sales and growing consumer demand for wine, spirits and other perishables that are commonly packaged in glass containers have helped drive industry growth. Over the five years to 2022, revenue is expected to increase as downstream building markets continue to recover and demand for automotive glass products strengthens.
Companies in this industry produce a wide range of glass products by melting silica sand or cullet and fabricating purchased glass. The industry includes four segments: flat glass manufacturing, including laminated glass; pressed or blown glass and glassware; glass container manufacturing, including bottles and jars; and product manufacturing from purchased glass, which includes lighting, mirrors, architectural glass and electronic glassware.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
