As a glass industry’s wind vane, the 30th China International Glass Industrial Technical Exhibition (China Glass 2019) will take place at the China International Exhibition Center (a new venue) in Beijing from May 22 to 25, 2019.
Gathering various glass categories including glass production, glass application, technology glass, glass processing equipment, raw materials and refractory materials, China Glass 2019 will maintain the concept of professionalization, internationalization and scale-up, and will depend on its platform to share information, promote integration and facilitate transformation and upgrades within the glass industry.
Further moving forward under the supply-side structural reform in 2018, the Chinese glass industry is running smoothly economically with more optimized industrial structures and increased profits. Annual sales revenue and total profit in the flat glass industry achieved 76 billion RMB and 11.6 billion RMB and increased by 7.2 percent and 29.1 percent respectively. The annual output of domestic glass products was 7.28 million tonnes. In terms of processed glass including tempered glass, laminated glass and insulating glass, the annual output increased slightly.
In 2019, China’s economy will maintain a steady and positive development trend. The glass industry is generally stable in the macro environment. Driven by new real estate projects and energy-saving reconstruction of buildings, the field of building glass is expected to remain stable. The photovoltaic, photothermal and automotive glass fields are expected to keep growing.
Additionally, promotion of policies related to intelligent and green manufacturing, known as the “One Belt And One Road” initiative, along with consumption upgrading in the domestic market will provide new growth points for the development of the glass industry.
