Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global and Chinese Low-E Glass Industry Report, 2015-2018” report to their offering.

The Chinese Government has introduced policies to support the development of the building energy efficiency industry since the 1990s, which propels the advancement of Low-E glass. The annual Low-E glass capacity jumps from 25 million m2 in 2005 to 660 million m2 in 2015, presenting a CAGR of 38.7%.

Although China’s Low-E glass capacity grows rapidly, the constraint of production technologies (especially online coating technology) leads to a low capacity utilization rate. In 2014, China’s Low-E glass output ascended 11.9% year on year to 150 million m2, while the capacity utilization rate was only 25.1%.

In 2015, the capacity utilization rate is expected to hit 25.8% amid the stable glass market. In addition, China’s Low-E glass penetration rate is less than 15%, still lagging far behind 80% in Europe, Japan, South Korea, the United States and other developed countries.

In the past two years, the adjustment in real estate market has incurred fluctuations in the Low-E glass price. For example, the price of 6mm single-silver Low-E glass dropped from RMB210 /weight case in 2012 to RMB120/weight case in mid-2015.
