Smart Glass Market by Technology (Electrochromics, SPD, Liquid Crystal, Microblinds, Thermographic and Photochromics), Application (Architectural, Transportation, Solar power generation, Electronics & others), & by Geography - Global Forecast to 2014 - 2020

Smart glass is also known by switchable glass, dimmable glass or dynamic glass. It is a kind of glass which changes its light transmission properties according to the provided stimulus. Based on whether, they require an electrical stimulus to respond or the level of control it offers to users; it can be categorized into Active or Passive. Electrochromic, SPD, and Liquid crystal are some of the active smart glass technologies which respond to voltage as a stimulus and adjust the light transmission property dynamically. On the other hand, Passive smart glass technologies such as Thermochromic and Photochromic react naturally to heat or light.

Smart glass technologies covered in this report are: Thermochromic, Suspended particle device (SPD), Electrochromic (EC), Liquid crystal (LC)/ Polymer dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC), Photochromic and so on. Technical assessments of the latest, emerging smart glass technologies- READ MORE >

Smart glass receives several positive testimonials from it users, for its reliability, durability and efficiency. It is also known as dimmable glass; magic glass is a kind of glass which changes its light transmission property according to provided stimulus such as Voltage, light and heat.

The smart glass industry has witnessed, increase in applications, efficiencies and effectiveness in the recent years. Concepts such as “Internet of things” are used in this glass sector to make the ultimate product highly efficient, reliable and advanced.

The smart glass technology can be divided into two segments which are “Active smart glass” and “Passive smart glass”. In these technologies, “Active smart glass” responds to stimulus such as voltage while “Passive smart glass” responds to light and heat as a stimulus. The “Active smart glass” products are controlled dynamically by users using simple switch while “Passive smart glass” technology products are controlled by the natural and inherent properties.

The smart glass industry is expected to witness commercialization in upcoming 4-5 years. This commercialization will be in terms of multiplied applications, integration of advanced material, improved working efficiency and cost efficiency. The major reasons behind projection of growth are: supportive government mandates and legislations, energy efficiency and low maintenance cost. The energy efficiency of this glass product is attracting governing bodies of various countries to encourage the use of these products. An inherent properties of smart glass such as self cleaning and auto dimming reduces its maintenance cost. As a result perceived benefits of these glass products are more than the incurred investment.

This report, based on the extensive research study on smart glass industry, is aimed at identifying the major application verticals for market. In current market scenario major market for smart glass products are: architecture and automotive sector. These applications are also present in growing industry verticals such as electronics and solar power generation. In addition, it is expected that healthcare sector will start using smart glass product exponentially in architecture and interior of hospitals of the future to offer healthy and cost effective service to the patients.

The aviation sector started using smart windows after adopting Boeing's 787 Dreamliner. In order to understand the role of various vendors in this revolutionary contract case study on integration of smart window in Boeing's 787 Dreamliner is included in this report.

Electrochromic and SPD are leading glass technologies which are used in automotive and architectural applications. At the same time Liquid crystal glasses are used as displays in electronic devices such as tablets, smart-phones, laptops and so on. However, for the applications such as power generation and some part of architectural sector Thermochromic and Photochromic smart glasses are also used.
