Glassmaking in the United States is facing a deep crisis. The growing costs of doing business in the glass industry push many glass manufacturers to exit the glassmaking industry. Home Glass Repair Chandler is not surprised that so many foreign enterprises are entering the American market in an attempt to conquer a good market share. Names aside, it is clear that the share of imported glass in the U.S. market constantly increases. For example, 40 years ago when the two legendary World Trade Center towers were built, not a single piece of imported glass was used. Today, as the national authorities proceed with the restoration of the WTC, they will most likely become a perfect advertising for imported Chinese glass.
Home Glass Repair Chandler suggests that the decline in the American glass industry can be traced back to somewhere in the middle of the 1990s. The tragic events of 9/11 further complicated the situation. The huge recession that followed the attacks on the WTC in New York placed a huge burden of difficulties on the glass industry. Even firms with a huge marketing experience and sustained positive reputation said they would hardly ever bring their production back to the pre-recession levels. Neither manufacturers nor customers should expect that the glassmaking industry in the U.S. will ever come back to its prehistoric state. Most probably, and Home Glass Repair Chandler is confident, that the expansion of foreign manufacturers to American glassmaking will continue. The American glass market is extremely attractive for businesses. It is geographically large and diverse. It is a great pity that national glassmakers have few chances to restore their position. The best the nation can do is to place restrictions on glass imports and give another impetus for business growth in the glassmaking field.
