The flat glass market size will surpass USD 130 billion by 2024, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc. Flat glass is extensively used in the construction industry replacing conventional bricks, wood and stone. A positive outlook towards growth in infrastructural spending for building airports and residential buildings coupled with strict amendments regarding use of eco-friendly building materials is set to drive this industry’s growth.
