Glass prices rising along with new skyscrapers

September 17, 2015
  • As starts skyrocket, so do glass prices; curtain-wall prices have risen more than 30 percent in the past 18 months, as previously shuttered glass manufacturers struggle to keep up with demand.
  • Year-to-date completions (46.0 million square feet) are far below historical norms, but there will be continued construction growth into 2016 as demand grows, putting further strain on glass supplies.
