Advanced Flat Glass - Market Size, Market Share, Demand Forecast, Sales, Company Profiles, Market Research, Industry Trends

Demand for US advanced flat glass will grow 9.6 percent annually through 2006. Gains will be driven by efforts to improve energy efficiency in buildings and vehicles; heightened security concerns; and demand for improved safety and convenience.

Electrochromic windows will lead gains, followed by bullet- and burglary-resistant glazings and low-emissivity (low-E) glass.

This study analyzes the $1.7 billion US advanced flat glass industry. It presents historical data for 1992, 1996 and 2001 and forecasts to 2006 and 2011 by product (e.g., low-E glass, reflective glass, electrochromic mirrors, smart windows, fire-rated glass, bullet-resistant glass, burglary-resistant glass, heads-up display windscreens, ultraclear and colorless glass, self-cleaning glass); and by market.

The study also examines the US market environment, details industry structure and market share, and profiles 25 key companies including Pilkington, PPG Industries, AFG Industries, Viracon, Gentex, Guardian Industries, Oldcastle Glass, Cardinal Glass, Saint-Gobain Sekurit USA, and Donnelly.
