Date: 23 November 2011
DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese Automotive Glass Industry Report, 2010-2011" report to their offering.

Glass industry has two special features. First, it is very sensitive to the transport cost; second, once the production line runs, it is difficult to pause.

Automotive glass industry also has the above features. Glass is fragile and its price is not high, but the transport cost accounts for a relatively high proportion of the unit price. In order to reduce the transport cost, manufacturers must be geographically close to the downstream customers. The core elements of glass production lines are furnaces. Once a furnace stops, it will take a long time to return to work. Therefore, even if there are no orders, furnaces must work constantly. In other words, glass production lines require stable and enough orders. The transport cost and furnaces determine the strong regional feature of automotive glass industry. China's automotive parts industry, particularly sedan parts industry, is basically controlled by foreign enterprises. However, in China automotive glass industry, local enterprises take a dominating position due to the strong regional feature of automotive glass industry.
