The buy-out we have just completed in India is also a result of our long-term and value-creating sustainable growth approach and our work in this scope. India is one of the world’s most promising markets in terms of growth potential; it has considerable potential in terms of glass demand that is rising together with increasing welfare. Having acquired the controlling stake and becoming the main shareholder of the HNGFL will enhance the Şişecam Group’s value creation potential.

In particular, with the popularity of double glazing units, and an increasing interest in insulated glass units, we estimate an annual increase of 7% in architectural glass demand in the period of 2017-2023. Our production operations of flat glass and mirror are continuing in India with a capacity of 600 tons/day at the HNGFL facility and we will continue our investments in line with the growth potential.”
