Position of the glass and ceramic industry in the Czech Republic

Homepage / Annual Report / Annual Report 2008 / Position of the glass and ceramic industry in the Czech Republic

The glass and ceramic industry is a traditional part of the processing industry in the Czech Republic.

The glass and ceramic industry is, according to the Standard Classification of Production issued by the Czech Statistical Office, investigated and stated in the DI subsection as a part of the section D - Processing industry, which is identical with the section 26 (Sector Classification)* named “Other Non-Metallic Mineral Products and Related Works”.

*) OKEČ corresponds to NACE – General statistical classification of economical activities in the context of European Union. However, NACE has different codes. Production of other non-metallic mineral products has the code 23.

The industry of glass, ceramics, china and building materials (section 26) includes productions of glass, ceramics and building materials of various types and utilization. Production of these commodities has a long tradition and a high level in the Czech Republic.

Classification of activities in the industry of glass, ceramics, china and building materials (section 26) is the following:

  • 26.1 Production of glass and glass products
  • 26.21-26.25 Production of non-refractory ceramic and china products, except for products for building purposes
  • 26.3 Production of ceramic wall and floor tiles
  • 26.4 Production of masonry materials, roof tiles, floor tiles and similar products
  • 26.5 Production of cement, lime and plaster
  • 26.6 Production of concrete, plaster and cement products
  • 26.7 Cutting, shaping and finishing of decorative and building natural stone
  • 26.8 Production of other non-metallic mineral products

Sections 26. 1. a 26. 21 – 26. 25 representing the production of glass, non-refractory ceramic and china products are a subject of evaluation of this Annual Report.

In the following tables the revenues, export, import and the balance of foreign trade of individual subsections of the processing industry and their share within the Czech processing industry in 2008, are given. The revenues (revenues from industrial activities), export, import and the balance of foreign trade are given in current prices. Source: Czech Statistical Office, data available at June 15, 2009.

The total volume of revenues of the processing industry in the Czech Republic reached a value of 2846.40 bill. CZK in 2008 (in 2007 it was 2901.88 bill. CZK). The whole DI subsection (industry of glass, ceramics and building materials) with revenues in amount of 131.90 bill. CZK shared on the revenues of the processing industry with 4.6 %.
