Owing to the rising demand for renewable energy all over the globe, the market for flat glass will likely observe a rise in its international sales. This is because flat glass is typically used in photovoltaic modules, e-glass constructions, and solar panels. Hence, a rising demand for renewable energy also pushes the demand for flat glass. This material is increasingly replacing traditional materials like bricks, stone, and wood. In addition, insulated flat glass is transparent and recyclable, which reduces pollution and also increases comfort for building residents.
