Most of the clear glass that is used in the US is made domestically. You will find some imports from Mexico and the Far East. Most of the glass that is imported from Europe is special colored, wired, patterened, fire rated etc....
Can I ask why you would like to know this?

I agrre with Brett. it is rare to find imported glass in the U.S as PPG is covering most of the market.

Lots of building glass is imported to the US.
For example, imports in 2001 were:
Clear Float Glass - not worked - $39 million
Float Glass - worked - $179 million
Tempered - $48 million
Laminated - $35 million
Insulated - $160 million
Float Mirror - $5.4 million.

It depends on the market and competition. Pilkington is okay.
