The analysts forecast the Global Flat Glass market to grow at a CAGR of 9.34 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the growing demand from the Construction and Automotive industries. The Global Flat Glass market has also been witnessing the increasing use of solar control flat glasses. However, the increasing energy costs and the rising prices of raw materials could pose a challenge to the growth of this market. 

The report, the Global Flat Glass Market Report, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the markets in the Americas and the APAC and EMEA regions; it also covers the Global Flat Glass market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

The Global Flat Glass market is witnessing increased use of solar control flat glass in buildings and motor vehicles across the world. Solar control glass not only adds attractiveness to the buildings, but also minimizes their energy cost by reducing the need for an air-conditioning system. 

In hot regions, this glass is most suitable for the buildings as it reduces the solar heat gain and helps control glare. In temperate regions, this glass helps balance the solar control with natural light. Thus, these features are propelling the demand for solar control glass across the world, which in turn is expected to contribute revenue to the Global Flat Glass market during the forecast period.

According to the report, the Global Flat Glass market is driven by many growth factors, one of which is the growing demand from the Construction and Automotive industries. The Construction and Automotive industries are the major end-users of the Global Flat Glass market, accounting for approximately 93 percent of its demand.

Further, the report states that a major challenge faced by the Global Flat Glass market is the rising energy costs and prices of raw materials. The prices of raw materials used for the production and manufacturing of flat glass are rising worldwide.
