Impact of COVID-19 on Flat Glass

The global pandemic of COVID-19 has affected the sales revenue of various industries adversely. The lockdown situation has pushed the economies towards forced recession. Due to the lockdown situation, most of the manufacturing units of flat glass were shut down, and automotive production has been affected severely and impacted the production facilities for several months which resulted in a steep downfall of sales revenues of the flat glass market. The supply chain throughout the world has been fractured. The economic instability due to the pandemic outbreak has also made developers, in both public and private sectors, rethink their projects as debts mount. This has created a downfall in the construction sector. However, it is expected that the flat glass market will recover from this global pandemic by the end of the second quarter of the coming year.

Laminated Glass Segment Dominate the Market

The laminated Glass segment accounts for a significant market share during the forecast period, due to increasing demand for laminated glass from the construction and automotive industries owing to its properties. It is chosen in windshields as, in case of an accident, it breaks in the shape of a spider-web and none of the pieces fall off, hence, plummeting the peril of passenger injuries. This has augmented its usage in sunroofs too. It also blocks the transmission of UV rays and the PVB layer, which is sandwiched in between two layers of glass and provides acoustic insulation. Companies, such as Ferrari and Volvo, have incorporated laminated glass in their cars with panoramic sunroofs. It is also used in skylight glazing and Photovoltaic (PV) cells.
