China Glass Returns to Shanghai Again in 2020
Thanks to the overall stable and progressive development of China's economy, the production of China's glass industry in the first half of 2019 was stable on the whole with high-quality development. There are remarkable results in the transformation and upgrading of the industry, and increasing profitability. The total output of flat glass was 460 million weight cases, rising 6.8% year-on-year by the end of June. There was a slight increase in the output of processed glass sector, including tempered glass, insulating glass and laminated glass. Total revenue of flat glass industry reached 32.9 billion yuan from January to May, up 6.4% year-on-year. The glass industry still keeps the growth momentum in output and profit under a downward pressure.
The promotion of national policies and the internal demand for industrial transformation and upgrading have brought multiple benefits to the glass industry. The Chinese government is strongly promoting the transformation and upgrading of the traditional construction industry to the construction industrialization, as well as promoting energy-saving technology and assembled buildings. A large number of enterprises in glass deep processing serving in the field of building energy conservation are showing great demand for accelerating the structural adjustment of products, improving craftsmanship and technology content, and promoting energy conservation and environmental protection. They are mainly focusing on the improvement of technological equipment and investment in environmental protection facilities. The innovation and upgrading of technical glass have brought new growth points to China’s glass industry, especially the development of ultra-white glass, ultra-thin glass, photovoltaic glass and energy-saving glass, as well as innovations in liquid crystal displays (LCDs) and substrate.
Facing opportunities and challenges, many glass enterprises are actively seeking for transformation and upgrading, as well as technological breakthroughs. China Glass, as a professional exhibition in the glass industry, always adheres to its philosophy of both being based on and serving the industry. It continuously explores, innovates, expands exhibition scope, enriches activities, improves service, helps enterprises seek new business opportunities and reach new corporations, and promotes industry transformation and upgrading. Organized by the Chinese Ceramic Society and contracted by Beijing Zhonggui Exhibition Co., Ltd., China Glass 2020 will take place at Shanghai New International Expo Centre on April 14-17, 2020. With cultivation and development in over past 30 years, China Glass has become an international well-know exhibition with full independent intellectual property rights. It is the most commercially valuable exhibition in China's glass industry as well as the platform for innovation exhibition, technology exchange and business talks.
China Glass 2020 will be held at Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC), including 7 indoor and 3 outdoor exhibition halls. Various subjects will be displayed and allocated among the 10 exhibition halls: E1 for international brands, E2 for glass production, E3 for tempering furnace and refractory materials, E4 – E7 for deep processing equipment and domestic glass, outdoor exhibition halls for raw and auxiliary materials.
