Glass Production Cost Report

Glass is an inorganic, non-crystalline material made of naturally abundant raw materials like limestone, sand, and soda ash. It is comprised of different sand types or from recycled glass. The raw materials are combined together to form molten glass, which is shaped and cooled for other applications. There are four main kinds of glass like Annealed, Heat Strengthened, Toughened, and Laminated.

It appears to be a transparent or translucent material that is hard, brittle, and impervious to the natural elements. It has a very high melting point of 1700°C (3090°F). It has various properties, like having mechanical strength and high resistance to breakage and is completely recyclable. It has a disordered and amorphous structure that can be easily broken due to it being fragile. The average density of glass is 2500kg/m3. It also has several optical properties, as it can transmit the visible spectrum of light depending on the glass's composition and purity. It is also corrosion-resistant and has thermal-type conductivity.

It has a wide range of applications, from building construction to telecommunications which are driving its market growth. Due to it being malleable, it can be treated to achieve finishes like tempered, armoured, annealed, thermo-acoustic, etc., which are further employed in various end-uses furthering the industry demand.

Furthermore, it is a cheap and sustainable packaging material that is used as a substitute for plastic which is extensively used in the food and beverage sector, boosting its market expansion. Moreover, it is used in the construction sector to manufacture green buildings, insulated glass and other elements which propel its market forward. Also, automobile production is heavily employed to manufacture electric vehicles, which is also augmenting the market's proliferation.
