Market, By Product

Low Emissivity (Low-E) coated glass may register above average gains at over 5.5% at the end of forecast period owing to its application potential in construction and automotive sectors. It is widely used in residential and non-residential buildings to minimize the UV-value which subsequently diminishes the shading coefficient, resulting in improvement of overall energy efficiency of the building.

Superior characteristics such as low surface emissivity, makes it ideal for usage in automotive windscreens as it absorbs and re-radiates very little light and heat. Technological advancements on usage of these products in automotive rear and side view mirror are being done, which should further drive the coated glass market share.

Solar control glass from construction projects may surpass USD 980 million by 2024. Increased product usage in non-residential buildings as it comprises of invisible layers of special materials which allows the sunlight to pass through it but lowers down the solar heat in the building. These products are double glazed, which means they are helpful in insulation also. Consumers tend to work and live in air-conditioned environments for comfort and productivity, which hence increases the energy demand. Increasing installation of solar panels along with minimization of the requirement of air-conditioning will drive the coated glass market demand.
