What are the growth factors of Smart Glass Market?

Smart Glass Industry Overview

The global smart glass market size was valued at USD 4.5 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.8% from 2021 to 2028.

The emergence of energy-conservation initiatives, such as green buildings and eco-friendly structures, globally is expected to offer promising growth prospects to the market. Administrative support through financial benefits and tax initiatives globally is also stimulating the growth of the market. For instance, the European banks have a new mortgage scheme for green homes, encouraging end-users to adopt energy-saving products, such as smart glass. Smart glass has gained traction in recent years due to its energy-saving properties, thermal and acoustic insulation, and elegant 3D design proposition. With smart glass fitted in place of normal glass into windows, doors, partitions, and skylights, the user has better sunlight control, preventing an increase in indoor temperatures during summers and subsequently reducing the building’s overall energy cost. The reduced reliance on HVAC systems helps reduce the carbon footprint of the building.

Factors such as the steady growth of the construction industry and rising investment in infrastructure projects contribute significantly to market growth. The tectonic shift in consumer preference for glass over bricks and cement walls is also likely to favor the growth prospects of the market over the next few years. Moreover, the recent trend of large, floor-to-ceiling glass windows is providing new business opportunities to manufacturers.

In addition, the replacement and renovation activities are expected to drive the demand for smart glass across the globe. The Department of Energy (DoE) estimates that there are approximately 19 million square feet of installed residential windows in the U.S. alone and approximately 500 million square feet of windows are installed in the commercial sector, out of which most buildings are constructed prior to the implementation of the ASHRAE standards, which address areas such as thermal comfort, indoor air quality, and energy conservation in buildings. Retrofitting of such buildings is expected to provide a significant growth opportunity for the market in the U.S. alone. However, factors such as lack of awareness about their benefits and high base cost could impede the demand for smart glass to a certain extent over the forecast period. These challenges can be overcome by technological advancement and government subsidiary schemes in order to reduce the overall cost. Extensive marketing endeavors in selected geographies and word-of-mouth publicity could also help augment sales.
