China to Dominate the Market
- The Chinese solar control window films market is driven by the construction market.
- The construction market in China is the largest in the region, which is almost two times the size of the construction industry of Japan.
- China's residential building sector witnessed the growth accelerate in past few years, as greater land supply was made available, in an effort to rebalance supply and demand and dampen the overheating housing market.
- Furthermore, the energy consumption in commercial and residential buildings is also increasing in China. Air conditioners are among the prime consumers of energy these days.
- Currently, more than one trillion kilowatt-hours of electricity is consumed by residential, commercial, and industrial air conditioning annually.
- Additionally, automotive heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems (HVAC systems) also consume a huge amounts of energy, which results in the generation of exhaust emissions. However, China is already moving ahead and is expected to surpass the United States as the world's biggest user of electricity for air conditioning, by 2020.
- The aforementioned factors are contributing to the increasing demand for solar control window films’ consumption in the region, during the forecast period.
The Asia-Pacific solar control window films market is semi-consolidated. The major companies include 3M, Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics Corporation, Eastman Chemical Company, Polytronix Inc, and Purlfrost, among others.
