Present Situation of Glass Machinery
At the beginning of the 20th century, there appeared a trend following the emergence of glass processing enterprises. Foshan, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Zhangjiagang and other relatively concentrated industrial areas have emerged. Its development area has expanded to Shandong Peninsula to Bohai Rim, and spread to many cities in the Mainland. At present, more than 50% of glass cold processing equipment in China are manufactured in Shunde, Guangdong Province.
By 2014, the development of glass machinery in China is highly dependent on the international market.
The good development prospects of glass finishing industry will keep a rapid development trend in China's glass edge grinding machine industry. It is estimated that from 2011 to 2013, the annual growth rate of demand for automotive and construction safety glass in the Chinese market is about 30%. This means that the glass machinery industry has tremendous development potential and endurance in China.
Building and automotive glass, glass products, as the base material, play an increasingly important role in the process of diversification, bringing opportunities and challenges for glass production and processing equipment. In 2014, flexible production process and multi-functional production equipment are the development trend of glass processing industry in the world. They require glass processing equipment to be highly repeatable and accurate. Automobile and building glass have been committed to reducing glass thickness to meet market needs, which puts forward higher requirements for glass deep processing technology. Many glass deep-processing enterprises begin to improve the efficiency of production lines and integrate all aspects of glass deep-processing. All these will become the development trend of glass deep processing industry in the future.
