The 32nd China International Glass Industrial Technical Exhibition (China Glass 2023), which is sponsored by the Chinese Ceramic Society and undertaken by Beijing Zhonggui Exhibition Co., Ltd., will be held from 6 to 9 May 2023 at Shanghai New International Expo Centre.
Adhering to the concept of “Specialization, Internationalization, and Large-scale”, the China Glass Exhibition has always focused on the innovation-driven development of the glass industry, providing a display and reference platform for the high-end, intelligent and green development of the glass industry, creating opportunities for domestic and foreign glass enterprises to cooperate in building a safe, reliable and efficient supply chain and providing a broader platform for promoting the domestic and international dual circulation of the glass industry.
In 2022, the glass industry has overcome the impact of the pandemic and fluctuations in production costs, etc., focusing on stabilizing production, adjusting the structure, and accelerating the green and low-carbon transformation. The annual production of flat glass was down 3.7 percent year-on-year. The annual output of technical glass such as hollow, laminated and tempered glass decreased slightly and the annual output of photovoltaic rolled glass was 16.062 million tons, an increase of 53.6 percent year-on-year.
The export quantity and export value of architectural glass and technical glass increased year-on-year. The operation of the glass industry has remained stable overall, the industrial structure has been continuously optimized and the industrial chain has been constantly extended, forming a diversified development of green buildings, electronic information, household appliances, automotive high-speed rail, new materials, new energy, biomedicine and other markets and the growth of these industries will support the stable operation and development transformation of the glass industry all the time.
At present, China’s economic operation has steadily rebounded and various localities have successively introduced new rules and policies to promote the development of the exhibition economy, emphasizing the role of professional exhibition platforms in promoting the real economy.
