August 23, 2022 | Construction and Manufacturing

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Construction Glass Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2024-2032”, finds that the global construction glass market reached a value of US$ 110.1 Billion in 2023. Construction glass refers to a translucent material used to coat windows, glass doors, and transparent walls. It has various properties, such as thermal insulation, waterproofing, and energy conservation. Some of the most commonly used construction glasses are sheet, float, laminated, shatterproof, toughened glass, wired, and tinted. In recent years, construction glass has gained traction due to its lightweight, cost-effectiveness, high strength, and environment-friendliness, and water, chemical and electricity resistance. As a result, construction glass is extensively adopted as a sustainable alternative to conventional building materials, such as wood, bricks, and polycarbonate (PC).

Global Construction Glass Market Trends:

One of the primary factors driving the market is the increasing construction activities across residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. Additionally, the growing construction industry and the widespread adoption of construction glass to increase the influx of natural light in buildings, reduce carbon emissions, and enhance the aesthetic appeal of buildings are positively influencing the market growth. Besides this, the escalating demand for sustainable construction is bolstering the market growth. Due to this, governments of numerous nations are taking various initiatives to minimize greenhouse emissions and promote green construction, thus creating lucrative opportunities for key players. Furthermore, the extensive investments in research and development (R&D) activities by key players for the renovation of existing infrastructure, expansion of consumer base, improving their product portfolio, and gaining a competitive edge in the market are driving the market growth. Other major growth-inducing factors include advancements in the glass industry, shifting consumer preferences toward better interiors, numerous properties of construction glass, including recyclability and re-useability, energy-efficient temperature management, rapid urbanization and industrialization, and expanding disposable income levels amongst the masses. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 177.1 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period (2024-2032).
