Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Australia's Glass and Glass Product Manufacturing industry comprises two key segments: the glass container segment and the flat-glass segment. The glass container segment is dominated by two local firms, Owens-Illinois Australia and Orora Limited (formerly Amcor Glass), which manufacture bottles and jars for packaging beverages and food products. The flat-glass segment includes Viridian (CSR Limited), which is the only local float glass manufacturer, along with many small to medium firms producing a range of fabricated glass products. The industry comprises about 725 enterprises employing 9,150 people in 2014-15, with about 94.0% of businesses employ fewer than 20 people.

The total domestic market for glass and glass products is forecast at $3.8 billion for 2014-15... purchase to read more
