Coated Glass Market, By Product

Low Emissivity (Low-E) coated glass market size 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 surge product demand.

Solar control glass market 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 coated glass market demand.

Hard coat glass market size from automotive windshields will register growth close to 4.5% owing to good impact and abrasion resistance. These products do not break up into large pieces upon impact and thus minimizes the risk of injury to the consumers. Styling flexibility, impact resistance and light transmittance properties of the products add value to the OEMs. Technology development to enhance weathering and abrasion resistance of hard coats will further surge demand.

Soft coat glass market size will exceed USD 2.5 billion at the end of 2024. These products are also known as off-line coated glass and are used in double glazed units. It provides same neutral appearance and thermal performance as that of its counterparts and can be used in replacement windows for existing homes and glazing applications in conservatories and new houses. Growing residential infrastructures in Europe owing to massive movements of migrants to the region have supported industry growth.

Coated Glass Market, By Region

Europe coated glass market size driven by France, Germany, Russia, Poland and UK will register steady growth at over 3.5%.
