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.

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...
