Global Smart Glazing Innovations 2017-2022: Growth of Smart Glass Industry Driven by Need for Sustainable Solutions and Rising Adoption of Advanced Design in Building and Automotive Industries - Research and Markets

World News: . []

The "Innovations in Smart Glazing" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Smart Glazing, provides an overview of types of smart glass, its advantages, drawbacks and applications amongst various industries. Additionally, it also profiles various emerging technology and product developments that will enable the smart glass industry to meet future needs, as well as open up new possibilities for the sector to impact and converge with other sectors.

Smart Glazing or Smart Glass, as it is widely known and accepted has witnessed a growing demand across industries, especially in the building and construction sector due to the rising need for sustainable solutions that can optimise energy requirements. Increasing investments in the setting up industrial-scale production capacities, enhancing technology scalability potential has significantly contributed towards its wide scale adoption. Growing collaborative efforts between technology providers, product developers and end users are also contributing towards faster adoption of technology.

Smart glass, with its ability to fine tune properties on application of heat, light or voltage, changes from clear to opaque allowing light to pass or to be blocked at certain values of wavelengths with or without human intervention. Furthermore, it can react to weather changes and adjust itself providing optimised comfort for residents and energy-efficient buildings. It also complies with strict legislations across the globe for more sustainable buildings, accelerating its growth potential in the coming years in the building and construction sector. It is also expected to find growing acceptance in the automotive, aerospace, and marine industries. With growing demand for passenger cars, automotive sector is also going to be a high opportunity sector.

Technology-wise, Active glass is expected to achieve higher growth rates in the next 5 years compared to passive glass. The active glass category can be segmented into - electrochromic glass, suspended particle device (SPD) glass, polymer dispersed liquid crystal glass. In the year 2017, SPD and electrochromic technologies are dominant due to their wider application landscape. Liquid crystal glass finds its major use in electronic devices and its growth is highly dependent to a major extent on the growth of electronic industries. Passive glass, divided into photochromic and thermochromic glass are mostly used in power generation and construction industries.
