The German glass industry has reported 2013 results
The German glass industry closed 2013 with a negligible decline in revenue (0.1%) compared with the same period in 2012. Total revenue therefore remained constant at around EUR 8.94 billion (2012: EUR 8.95 billion). Domestic sales declined by 0.7% (EUR 5.66 billion), whereas foreign sales rose by 0.9% to EUR 3.28 billion. The number of employees in the glass industry decreased moderately by 1.4% to currently approximately 53,000.
The flat glass manufacturing and finishing segments recovered in 2013 after the drastic slump in 2012. Flat glass manufacturers reported a 3.0% increase in revenue, though overall revenue in the flat glass finishing sector declined slightly by 1.5%. Total revenue in the flat glass manufacturing sector was EUR 1.02 billion, EUR 538 million of which was accounted for by domestic sales (down 9.0%) and EUR 478 million by foreign sales (up 21.1%). The flat glass finishing sector reported total annual revenue of EUR 3.44 billion, whereby domestic sales accounted for EUR 2.43 billion (down 2.4%) and foreign sales EUR 1.01 billion (up 0.9%).
Results in the consumer-related container glass segment remained constant, and it closed 2013 with revenue growth of 3.7% to EUR 1.91 billion. This is particularly due to the high level of foreign sales, which increased from 7.4% to EUR 678 million, a much more positive development than domestic sales, which only increased by 1.8% to EUR 1.24 billion.
The glass fibre segment’s result was also positive (up 4.1% to EUR 874 m...
