Research published by IBISWorld predicts that the Flat Glass industry will return to consistent growth over the five years to 2018-19. In the last five years, to 2013-14, the sector has not done particularly well - with revenue projected to fall by around 5% to £316m in the current financial year. This is due in a large part to the fall off in demand from the automotive and construction sectors - key downstream industries for flat glass.

In the UK, the market is dominated by three key players - Pilkington, Guardian Industries and Saint-Gobain Glass - who between them account for over 95% of the flat glass produced in the UK. As the market requires a high degree of initial capital investment, other competitors have been largely discouraged from entry.
