Overview of the Glass & Ceramics Sector in India
The glass industry in India is quite old and well established. The first glass plant in India was set up in 1908. The glass makers employed methods such as moulding, folding, twisting, double-stripping and wire-winding to manufacture glass. It remained largely a cottage industry for a long time. In recent years, the industry has transformed and developed.
The current value of Indian glass industry is 225 billion. The Indian glass market is set to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15% over the next three years. The glass consumption growth is expected in the construction (10-12 %), automotive (20 %), consumer goods (15-20 %) and pharmaceutical (15-18 %) sectors.
About 75% of the total glass industry is concentrated in U.P, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. Gujarat employs the highest number of people in the glass industry followed by Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh. About 70 per cent of the total glass production in the unorganized sector in India is contributed by the Firozabad glass industry.
The paper estimated that the glass industry employs more than 40 lac people. The organized sector accounts for 35 lacs and unorganized sector provides direct jobs to around 5-6 lac people. A large amount of man-power is involved indirectly in the sector, most of whom are unskilled workers.
