Coated Glass Market worth over $24.5 billion by 2024

  • Published Date: March 12, 2018

According to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc., the Coated Glass Market size is set to surpass USD 24.5 billion by 2024. Increasing demand for clean source of energy along with addition of better aesthetical value to the buildings will drive the market growth.

Favorable government schemes along with growth in FDI funding in India and China has propelled the growth of construction and automotive industries in the region. Environmental concerns regarding CO2 emissions and consumer awareness towards energy efficient buildings will stimulate the business growth.

Europe, with steady growth in Germany, UK and France will exceed 380 million square meters by the end of the forecast period. Builders are more concerned towards safety & security, environmental protection and natural insulation in residential as well as commercial buildings. Superior solar performance, absorption, transmission and reflection properties of the product along with increasing approach towards achieving greater energy efficacy of the buildings will drive the coated glass market.

Solar control glass demand from construction applications will witness gains at over 4% during the projected timespan. The products are used in combination to create multi-functional glazing which results in noise reduction, low-maintenance, enhanced safety & security and aesthetic appeal. They have a microscopically thin coating on one side of the glass which reflects the heat from the sun to the outside and keeps the interiors cooler, thereby enhancing the energy efficiency of the building and stimulating coated glass market growth.

Key raw materials such as soda ash, natural gas, and silica coupled with specialized chemical and mechanical are used in manufacturing coated glass. High production cost and environmental impact on glass durability may hamper the coated glass market supply demand gap.
