DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/4pc9g9/glass_product) has announced the addition of the "Glass Product Manufacturing in the US" report to their offering.
Glass ceiling: The industry will rebound, but plastic and metal substitutes will limit growth
Domestic glass manufacturers will continue to feel the pressure from substitute products replacing glass in many functions, particularly for food packaging. Furthermore, despite economic recovery, demand for glass used in automobiles will be limited by strong import competition in the next five years.
Firms in this industry produce a wide range of glass products by melting silica sand or cullet and fabricating purchased glass. The industry comprises four segments: flat glass manufacturing (including laminated glass); pressed or blown glass and glassware; glass container manufacturing (including bottles and jars); and product manufacturing from purchased glass, which includes lighting, mirrors, architectural glass and electronic glassware.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
