Container glass has a higher market share compared to flat glass and other types of glass due to the high demand from the packaging sector. The flat glass market faces maximum demand from the construction sector. The glass manufacturers in India of laminated glass and solar glass are also witnessing a steady growth.
India is a net exporter of container glass and net importer of flat glass. The main drivers of this industry are the growing packaging industry and the rise in real estate sector. Rising price of raw materials and increasing usage of alternatives of glass are the major challenges that the glass companies in India are facing. The public players dominate the market with their widespread distribution network. Raising awareness about the various uses of glass and incorporation of product differentiation will boost the market.
