About Smart Glass

Smart glass, also called as magic glass or switchable glass, is a unique kind of glass that can alter its light transmission properties. It is comprised of a special glass that can change the measure of light transmitted through it based on the voltage, heat, or light supplied. It may change to transparent or translucent according to the input voltage and subsequently, control the measure of light and heat passing through it. Smart glass is manufactured by laminating two or more glass or polycarbonate sheets. Smart glass is typically used as a part of doors, windows, partitions, and sky-facing windows in private and commercial buildings. It can be controlled manually as well as automatically. These glasses help in diminishing the expense of heating, ventilating, and lighting.

The analysts forecast the global smart glass market to grow at a CAGR of 19.88% during the period 2016-2020.

New Report Released: – Global Smart Glass Market 2016-2020

The author of the report recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global smart glass market: AGC Group, Corning, DuPont, PPG Industries, and Saint-Gobain.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 3M, ASG, AutoGlass, Balcony Systems, BASF, Bayer, Cardinal Glass Industries, Carlex, ChromoGenics, Citala, Domoticware, Dow Chemical, Garware Suncontrol, Gentex, Gesimat, GKN Group, GlasNovations, Glass Apps, Heliotrope Technologies, Hitachi Chemicals, ICE AV, Innovative Glass, InvisiShade, Kinestral Technologies, LTI Smart Glass, NeoView Kolon, Nippon Sheet Glass, Nippon Sheet Glass, Polytronix, Pulp Studio, Ravenbrick, Scienstry, Sekisui Chemical, Smartglass International, Solutia, SPD Control Systems, Switch Materials, US e-Chromic, VELUX, View, Vision Systems, and Xinology.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the research team said: “One of the key trends for market growth will be rise in application in infrastructural development. The global smart glass market is observing a rise in the use of smart glass in the architecture and construction sector. With the governments of many countries around the world opting to construct buildings and offices with energy-saving properties, the global smart glass market is estimated to grow at a rapid pace. The infrastructural development segment accounted for 25% of the market in 2015 and is the second-largest application segment for smart glass across the globe.”

According to the report, demand for glazing by the customers will be a key driver for market growth. The global smart glass market is projected to grow during the forecast period due to the anticipated increase in demand for glazing during the forecast period. The growing cost of energy has resulted in a drastic change in the consumer mind-set across the globe, with most consumers now going for residential buildings with more glazing area rather than ones with the lesser glazing area. This has led to an increase in the use of photochromic and thermochromic glass because of their heat and light shielding properties.

Further, the report states that premium pricing will be a challenge for the market. Smart glass manufacturers globally have kept the prices of their products high to form a high-end perception for smart glass among consumers. This practice of premium pricing is a major challenge to the growth of the market. Consumers are reluctant to use it in the construction sector as smart glass costs more than plain glass. Smart glass products are mainly used in high-end automobiles because the consumer base is small. Automobile manufacturers and smart glass suppliers need to reduce their prices to expand their consumer reach and facilitate growth in the automotive sector, the major application sector for smart glass products.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
