The 32nd China International Glass Industrial Technical Exhibition (China Glass 2023) will be held from 6 to 9 May 2023 at Shanghai New International Expo Centre.

The event is sponsored by the Chinese Ceramic Society and undertaken by Beijing Zhonggui Exhibition Co.

Adhering to the concept of ‘Specialization, Internationalization, and Large-scale’, China Glass is focused on the innovation-driven development of the glass industry.

It provides a reference platform for high-end, intelligent and green development of the glass industry, and creates opportunities for domestic and overseas glass companies to cooperate.

The glass industry has overcome the impact of the pandemic and fluctuations in production costs, focusing on stabilizing production, adjusting the structure, and accelerating the green and low-carbon transformation.

The annual production of flat glass in 2022 was 1.01 billion weight boxes, down 3.7% 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% 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 extended.

It has formed a diversified development of green buildings, electronic information, household appliances, automotive high-speed rail, new materials, new energy, biomedicine and other markets.

The growth of these industries will support the development transformation of the glass industry.

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.

Compared with previous editions, the 32nd China Glass Exhibition will stand at the starting point of the "14th Five-Year Plan" new period, based on the ultra-large-scale market advantages of China's glass industry, closely follow the requirements of the industry's innovation-driven development strategy, and contribute to the construction of a new development pattern of China's glass industry.
