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. From rudimentary mouth-blown and hand-working processes, the industry has evolved to adopt modern processes and automation in a large way. However, mouth-blown processes and handcrafted glassware continue to play a role in developing innovative designs in decorative and table glassware products that are exported in large quantities.

The growth in India?s glass industry is being driven by user segments such as manufacturing, construction and petrochemicals. These segments are highly competitive, demanding and well integrated with global trends. Supplying to key players in these segments will require the glass manufacturers to be capable of developing technically advanced products and customizing specifications to user requirements. Hence, technological capability is a key success factor in the industry today which means employment opportunities for Polisher (Glass Manufacturing; Glass Products) are abundant.
