The upgrading of residents' consumption structure, encouragement of independent innovation by enterprises, new rural construction, and urbanization will ensure that the domestic market will not change its mid- to long-term demand for glass products. With the development of industries such as construction, automobiles, decoration, furniture, information industry and other industries, and people's requirements for the living space environment, functional products such as safety glass and energy-saving hollow glass have been widely used. The supply and demand pattern and consumption structure of flat glass are changing.
The development of the glass industry has links with many industries in the national economy. The glass industry plays an active role in promoting the development of the entire national economy. Therefore, the "Eleventh Five-Year Plan" also put forward specific requirements for the development of the glass industry. Also promulgated various laws and regulations to regulate the healthy development of the glass industry. Under the new situation, the glass industry must, in accordance with the requirements of the scientific development concept, change the mode of growth, effectively adjust the industrial structure, and promote the healthy development of the industry.
