This industry forecast the global smart glass market to grow from USD 2.38 Billion in 2015 to USD 5.81 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 19.5% between 2015 and 2020. The emerging automobile and architectural buildings applications are creating a huge demand for smart glass market across the world. The major factors driving the growth of the smart glass market are the need for energy-efficient solutions, and government regulations for green buildings. Furthermore, the rising automotive sector is expected to drive the smart glass market in the coming years.

The scope of this report covers the smart glass market by technology, application, and region. Electrochromics technology is expected to account the largest market share and dominate the smart glass market from 2015 to 2020, due to growing demand for energy-efficient solutions which could be achieved by installing the smart windows. With these smart windows the energy consumption could be brought down to 40% as per the industry players.

The smart glass industry is research-intensive; hence, the capital requirement is significant. While smart glass technology has had a presence in the industry for more than 10 years, it is only within the last few years that manufacturers have received the funding and support necessary to launch a large volume production. With the newly available resources and financial support, smart glass technology has found more applications in various industry sectors in the last few years. Concepts such as—Internet of things— are used in the smart glass sector to make the ultimate product highly efficient, reliable, and advanced.

North America and Europe are the biggest contributors in this industry in terms of consumption and manufacturing capacities. Currently, Europe is the leading market in smart glass. The APAC smart glass market is expecting a noticeable growth from 2015 to 2020. It is expected that the APAC smart glass market would grow significantly at the highest CAGR from 2015 to 2020. The major reason for the highest estimated growth of APAC is the increasing need to reduce the energy consumption and incorporate energy-efficient building materials and technologies in architectural and transportation sector.

Major players in this industry include, SAGE Electrochromics (U.S.), Research Frontiers, Inc. (U.S.), View, Inc. (U.S.), AGC, Ltd. (Japan), PPG Industries (U.S.), Gentex Corp. (U.S.), Hitachi Chemicals Co. Ltd. (Japan), Glass Apps. (U.S.), Pleotint, LLC (U.S.), RavenBrick LLC (U.S.), Scienstry Inc. (U.S.), SmartGlass International Ltd.

Exteneded Description

“Optimal energy saving is driving the smart glass market”

The smart glass market is expected to reach USD 5.81 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 19.5% between 2015 and 2020. Global energy demand continues to grow despite the historical high prices and mounting concerns over the energy security. Improving the energy efficiency of homes, businesses, schools, government buildings, and industries is imperative and inevitable to address the energy supply and demand. Switching to smart windows makes a huge difference in the overall energy consumption. Smart windows are made of smart glass regulate the amount of light passing through them depending on the time of the day. As a result, these windows with smart glass can switch from being translucent to transparent without consuming a large amount of energy.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, by using smart glass, the energy consumption can be reduced by almost 40%. This energy saving property of the smart glass is a driving force for the smart glass market.

“Robust demand for smart glass in premium automotive sector during the forecast period”

Smart glass is ideal for automobile, aviation, and any other transportation applications where heat and glare control are desired. In the automotive sector, smart glass is used in applications such as rear view mirrors, windows, sun roofs, and windshields. Smart glass provides protection from harmful UV rays, glare protection, and helps to control heat inside the vehicle and saves energy.

Europe is the largest market for smart glass as it is the manufacturing hub for premium automobiles. Manufacturers such as Mercedes, BMW, and Audi have partnered with smart glass licensee—Reseach Frontiers, Inc. (U.S.)—to use its innoavtive smart glass for enhancing the performance and aesthetic value of its automobiles.

The APAC region is expected to grow the highest in the automotive application of smart glass during the forecast period. Asahi Glass Company in March 2014 launched its smart window named WONDERLITE being used in Japanese test rail which uses the SPD technology licensed by Research Frontiers Inc. Recently, Ford partnered with Research Frontiers to use its SPD technology for their electronically dimmable sunroofs.

In the process of determining and verifying the market size for several segments and sub-segments gathered through secondary research, extensive primary interviews were conducted with key people.

Break-up of profile of primary participants is given below as:

- By Company Type: Tier 1 – 35 %, Tier 2 – 40% and Tier 3 – 25%
- By Designation: C-level – 35%, Director level – 25%, Others – 40%
- By Region: North America – 43%, Europe – 19%, APAC – 29%, RoW – 9%
Due to rise in the demand for energy-efficient solutions and emerging green building concept, the smart glass market finds huge opportunity to expand in the next five years.
