This market is strategically important for Italian products despite its ups and downs, which posted periods of growth as well as a slowdown in orders especially over the past year.After a truly formidable period, there was a significant slowdown in the demand for hollow glass for domestic products, a sector where numerous small local manufacturers are suffering from the concentrated manufacturing of large-scale international groups. The year 2013 is continuing with some difficulties but with projects already in the pipeline and a special interest in the pharmaceutical industry and technical glass.
Flat glass struck a positive note, mainly because of the rather bubbly construction market at the moment as a result of the seasonal trend (activity is concentrated in the June-October period). Companies at the show were pleased with the turnout, with fewer visitors perhaps, but who were very qualified.
