HanGlas and KCC [Korea] have admitted colluding to fix prices on flat glass.

The two, with more than 80 percent of the market between them, are said to have distorted the market by raising prices.

They are estimated to have reaped hundreds of billions of won in undue profit at the expense of consumers.
