Glass is environment friendly and has immense growth opportunities in India, as the country is one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

RNCOS believes that market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 18% over the period 2014-2018, revenue reaching to INR 523 Billion by 2018.

Emphasizing on potential of this industry, Shushmul Maheshwari, CEO – RNCOS said that expansion of construction and automobile industries in India and significant rate of urbanization have been the major growth drivers of this industry. He also highlighted that there is an increase in the demand for reflective and decorative glasses with digital print technology in the country which is expected to impel the growth of the Indian glass market.

Our analysis suggests that keeping in mind both container and flat glass market, northern and western region will cater substantial revenue in overall glass market in next five years majorly due to higher rate of urbanization and higher building construction in these zones. The Beer segment is anticipated to drive the container glass segment in future due to higher per capita expenditure, government policies.
