As one of the world two largest professional exhibitions among global glass industries, China Glass 2021 will adhere to the organization principles of “professionalization, internationalization and expansion” to display the comprehensive and innovative development achievements of the global glass industry.

Overall production of the Chinese glass industry in 2020 maintained positive growth. The total annual output of flat glass increased by 1.3 percent year on year, while the revenue and profit of the industry were 92.6 billion CNY and 13 billion CNY, which increased 39 percent year on year. For processed glasses, the accumulative output of toughened glass, laminated glass and insulating glass was up respectively to 530 million square metres, 110 million square metres and 150 million square metres in 2020.

The 2021 year is the first year of China’s 14th Five-Year Plan, and China will continue to expand domestic demand, build new development patterns, stabilize and expand consumption, improve the urbanization strategy and other top-level policies. All this will be done to promote further developments in the energy efficiency building, automotive, consumer electronics and photovoltaic industries.

Energy saving and carbon reduction initiatives in the construction industry are key links to implement both of the “Reaching Peak Carbon” and “Carbon Neutral” goals in China. Therefore energy saving glass, power generating glass and other innovative materials and products will provide further application directions for the development of green low-carbon buildings.

The China Glass exhibition will drive industrial innovation continually and provide an arena for jointly displaying energy saving and environmental protection technology, equipment and products of the glass industry. As the largest professional exhibition in global glass industry in 2021, China Glass 2021 will focus on supply chain resources, showcse high-quality developments within the industry and provide Chinese and foreign companies with an authoritative and professional exchange platform on innovative technology and trade.
