The 30th China International Glass Industrial Technical Exhibition (China Glass 2019) will be staged at China International Exhibition Center (new venue) of Beijing on 22-25 May, 2019. Organized by the Chinese Ceramic Society and contracted by Beijing Zhonggui Exhibition Co., Ltd., China Glass 2019 will be the biggest event of the global glass industry in 2019. This exhibition will attract nearly 1,000 industrial glass manufacturers and more than 40,000 buyers by its eight exhibition halls and over 100,000m2 exhibition area.
At present, China’s glass industry is facing new growth and economic vitality, which were stimulated by a series of policies including enhanced technological innovation in manufacturing of the 13th Five-Year Plan, Made in China 2025 strategy, the Belt and Road Initiative, Coordinated Development for the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Region, Development strategy of Yangtze river economic belt and consumption upgrading of Chinese domestic market.
The Chinese glass industry sustained a trend of increasing rise in 2017. The total output of the flat glass industry in 2017 was 790 million weight cases with a 3.5% rise compared to the same period the year before last. Annual industry revenue and profit increased by 20% and 81% respectively, to RMB75.9 billion and RMB 9.3 billion. The sharp price hike greatly improved the economic benefits of the industry. It should be also noticed that excess production capacity has not been effectively resolved and the glass industry faces downward pressure under an economic atmosphere including price rising of raw materials, fuel cost and tighter draconian environmental protection policy. The total output of flat glass reached 497 million weight cases by the end of July in 2018. It is expected that the performance of the glass industry in 2018 will be generally smooth and make progress. Economic benefits and the industrial structure of the glass industry will continue improving, meanwhile, the industry value-added growth rate will maintain at same level of prior year.
As a weather vane of global glass industry, China Glass 2019 will bring a trade platform and technical arena for international glass community by its grand exhibition scale, international outlook and professional exhibition services.
