A dominant share of the glass industry in Ukraine is formed by the flat glass industry, which at this time is 100% imported to Ukraine. According to the State Statistics Service, imports amounted to $93.1 million in 2019.
In general, the flat glass market is actively growing and is being formed due to the import of its types, mainly float glass, which is used in the production of double-glazed windows and facade systems, as well as for further processing and production of safety glass, automotive glass, decorative glass of various types etc.
There are no manufacturers of float glass in Ukraine, which in turn opens up opportunities for starting a business, as well as import substitution through the development of domestic production and creation of its own capacities.
The city of Vilnohirsk is one of the main centers of the glass industry in Ukraine due to the presence of significant reserves of quartz sands, which are used for glass production at local budget-generating enterprises («Vilnohirske Sklo» LLC).
To create a float-glass production in the industrial zone of the city, a land mass is proposed, which consists of 4 land plots with a total area of more than 55 hectares.
This proposal has an advantageous logistics infrastructure – approach automotive roads and railways are at a distance of 200-300 meters. The connection points to the necessary engineering infrastructure are also located nearby.
