With the continuous improvement of people’s living standards and the continuous development of social economy, people’s requirements for their own lives and workplaces are getting higher and higher. Glass doors and windows are the main way to communicate inside and outside the building. Lighting, viewing and decoration are the basic requirements for glass. Energy conservation and environmental protection are further requirements for glass doors and windows, and are increasingly valued by the society.
Low-E low-emission glass, which can be processed off-line, not only inherits all the advantages of offline Low-E, but also has a qualitative breakthrough in the traditional disadvantages, effectively solving the problem of many small and medium-sized processing manufacturers. It is said that the combination of offline and online advantages, in the use of Low-E glass products today, will have a broader market prospects.
The development time of low-emissivity glass in China is relatively short, and the brand image of industry enterprises is quite different from that of foreign companies. China’s low-emissivity glass production has reached the world’s advanced level. However, because the brand image and popularity are not as good as those of foreign manufacturers, the price is far from the imported products. The wholesale low-e glass equipment produced in China has superior performance, and the equipment has reached the international advanced level. The price is only about 1/2 of that of foreign similar imported products, which has strong substitution and competitiveness.
Faced with the unfavorable situation of continuous macroeconomic regulation and control, rapid rise in oil prices and prices, severe environmental protection tasks, and rising production cost rigidity, energy conservation and green development have become the development direction of the glass industry. This demand has also accelerated the research and development drive of China’s glass enterprises. Recently, it has been reported that Shenzhen has asked developers to replace all architectural glass with energy-saving glass. From 2012, energy-saving glass must be used along the street surface of new buildings.
