Glass is a non-crystalline solid but brittle material, chiefly made up of about 75% silica (SiO2), Na2O, CaO. Glass is a component crucial to scientific as well as numerous industrial sectors. Its chemical, physical, and optical properties, in particular, make it suitable for applications as/in flat glass, container glass, optics and optoelectronics material, laboratory equipment, thermal insulator (glass wool), reinforcement fiber (glass-reinforced plastic, glass fiber reinforced concrete), and glass art (art glass, studio glass). Primarily, the glass industry is divided into four market segments in: Hollow Glass, Flat Glass, Fiber Glass and Special Glass.
This report “Global Flat Glass Market Report: 2013 Edition” (www.marketreportsonline.com/268920.html ) is starkly focused on the flat glass segment of the overall glass industry. Flat glass is also termed as sheet glass or plate glass. The very variety of glass, initially, is produced in plane form, which is later on bent or curved as per the requirement. Float process remains the most widely used method for the production of flat glass, as over 90% of the flat glass worldwide is made through this process. Flat glass is majorly used in construction; interior furnishing and decoration; automotive; and transportation industries. Flat glass applications have not only revolutionized the energy conservation realm but they also proved to be essential element in various products and processes in the field of energy and other industries.
