In recent times, rapid urbanisation has driven infrastructural changes all over the country. If you think about it, contemporary architecture has seen a predominance of glass, whether in the form of shopping malls, luxury residential complexes, or trendy corporate offices. And, the glass market in India is a flourishing one, courtesy the real estate, IT & ITES sector, etc. In fact, the construction industry alone contributes as much as 80% to the flat glass demand*. Even though a majority of sales in terms of volume is driven by the container glass segment, the flat glass segment generates a major chunk of revenue in terms of value.
Now, consider the following factors:
The glass industry is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 14% per year**.
The need for environment-friendly glass is fast growing in popularity.
Southern and western regions of India has a booming demand of glass consumption.
There is an ever increasing demand of decorative glasses for digital print.
All these trends show that glass manufacturing is a profitable business venture. Even though initial cost of investment may be high, the profits make up for the same in the long run. Selling glass online is one way of making money through glass manufacturing.
