Global Construction Glass Market Outlook to 2028: Non-Residential Sector Expected to Dominate -

DUBLIN--()--The "Global Construction Glass Market Outlook to 2028" report has been added to's offering.

The construction glass market has been showing some substantial demand growth on the back of increased use of glass in developing and emerging markets. Urbanisation is one of the major drivers behind the growth, particularly with increasing number of high rise buildings in large densely populated cities. Lack of space and rising land prices are pushing property developers towards high rise building.

In matured markets, availability of skilled labours as well as supplies of prefabricated glass windows and facade claddings are some key supportive factors for the high usage of glass in the construction industry. However, developing markets are lagging behind in the race due to the inadequacy of such facilities.

The non-residential sector is expected to continue to account for the largest market share in the construction glass market. Hotels and shopping centres will be some of the major subsectors which will keep the demand elevated. In most developing markets, where alternative materials were previously used for durability and lower maintenance costs, have now been switching towards glass panels for both aesthetics as well as prestige reasons.

However, one of the key aspects which require attention across commercial, residential and infrastructure construction is the environmental and energy-saving attributes. Intensive marketing will be required to influence the governments in policy making, strong coordination with designers and structural engineers etc. Awareness, marketing, and a good technical team are also very important for furthering construction glass demand.

Rising costs and availability of cheap and durable alternative materials continue to remain a significant downside risk to the growing demand, particularly in the residential sector. It is also believed that the tightening of monetary policy has a strong correlation with residential construction. The US Federal Reserve is expected to switch towards tighter monetary policy this year while other central banks including People's Bank of China are expected to keep the policy relatively tight. These measures would hamper construction glass demand in various markets in the short term.
