Active smart glass technology will dominate the market with over 70% volumetric shares in 2027. This is a type of glass that controls or alters the transmission of light using electrical power. It is a user-controlled technology that adjusts the voltage supply, providing on-demand results. Its switching speed and tint change are its most sought-after attributes in the global market.

Active glass technology, such as PDLC, is also available in film format (lamination smart film and self-adhesive smart film), making it more cost-efficient. Active switchable glass is segregated into electrochromic, nanocrystal, micro-blends, Suspended Particle Device (SPD), and Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) technologies.

The power source and installation designs for active smart glass will vary according to the technologies used. SPD technology offer changes in desired level of shading or light blocking in up to 3 seconds. SPD is expected to generate around USD 814 million revenue by 2027 owing to several advantages offered by it including ease of cleaning, availability in a wide range of glass types & shapes, and custom shading, among others.
