DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4c5f6b/global_and_chinese) has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese Advanced Flat Glass Industry Report, 2011" report to their offering.

Advanced flat glass in the report is defined as automotive glass, electronic display glass, low-e glass and solar glass.

The market size of automotive glass approximates USD15 billion, with around USD13 billion from OE market and USD2 billion from AM market.

As for the electronic display glass market, the market size is about USD16.5 billion, of which, large size TFT-LCD substrate registers around USD15.7 billion. As the production of glass substrate requires sophisticated technologies, only four companies, namely, US-based Corning, Japan-based AGC, Nippon Electric Glass and AvanStrate, can make the product.

Low-E glass and solar glass are among the hottest investment topics at present, but their gross margin is far less than that of large size TFT-LCD substrate.

In Europe and the USA, the utilization rate of low-E glass is extremely high, but very few buildings are erected each year. In contrast, China inputs huge amounts of money to build public and commercial buildings each year, so it is the largest market of low-E glass. In China's civil architecture sector, the penetration rate of low-e glass is very low due to the exorbitant price, and the market size will see no considerable growth in the short run.

The market size of solar (PV) glass is relatively small. Solar glass is mainly classified into two categories: one is anti-reflective glass for silicon solar cell, and the other is TCO glass for thin film solar cell. The solar industry is witnessing grim price competition that causes sharp decline in gross margin. It is estimated that the market size of TCO glass in 2011 will reach approximately 57.092 million sq m valuing about USD1.3 billion.
