Research and Markets: Advanced Flat Glass Market in the US 2011

Date: 14 September 2011
DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Advanced Flat Glass Market in the US" report to their offering.

Advanced flat glass demand in the States is anticipated to surge at the rate of 9.1% annually accounting for almost $7.0 billion after facing a steep downfall during the recession period. Rise will be driven by a rebound in residential construction and motor vehicle production. Consumption will also benefit from increasing market penetration of low-emissivity glass, heads-up display windshields, electrochromic mirrors, smart glass and other products.

Safety and security glass accounted for nearly three-fifths of demand in value terms in 2010, reflecting the widespread use of these products in motor vehicles (laminated windshields and tempered window glass) and in nonresidential construction (laminated security glass and tempered fire-rated glass). Although motor vehicles will remain the largest single market for advanced glass products, more rapid gains will be posted in architectural markets. Other advanced flat glass products include well established products such as ultraclear glass and glass used in furniture and appliance markets, as well as new products, such as self-cleaning glass and heads-up display windshields.
