Turkish IGU market in a nutshell

Turkey is the second-largest country in flat glass consumption in the region.  Construction sector takes the main share in flat glass consumption. The construction sector, which is determinative in IGU production, maintains its growth potential due to social, demographic, and economic reasons such as increasing population, urbanization, young population resources and preferences, and shrinking family structure.
In addition, the urban transformation process triggered by the high old housing stocks and the need for earthquake-resistant buildings is another important factor for the potential of the sector.
Architectural trends are also effective in increasing the demand of IGU production in the sector. Changing architectural trends towards maximum benefit from daylight expand the glass area on building surfaces like facades, roofs, and curtain wall applications. Increasing environmental awareness and sanctions for energy consumption and environment protection, positively impact IGU production with low U values. 
Sisecam, Turkish flat glass producer, supports the development of qualified IGU production. There are more than 200 IGU producers authorized by Sisecam. In addition to Sisecam’s authorized producers there are hundreds of smaller sized producers. Authorized IGU producers who serve export markets beyond meeting the local demand keep following new technologies in the sector and they are enthusiastic to apply them in their process.
