Global Solar Control Glass Market to Reach US$ 9.38 Billion by 2027, Propelled by Increasing Product Demand Across Residential and Commercial Sectors

Published on Jul 25, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Solar Control Glass Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global solar control glass market reached a value of US$ 5.46 Billion in 2021. Solar control glass is a specially treated, high-performance tripled glazed unit glass that is designed to prevent the extent of heat and light transference in an indoor environment. It is manufactured by applying layers of metal oxide or solar control coating on the glass in the molten state, which aids in reflecting and filtering artificial or natural light. Solar control glass eliminates the heat entrance, mitigates uncomfortable glare, and allows optimum natural daylight transmission in the room. Additionally, solar control glass lowers the requirement for air-conditioning; thus, it is frequently installed in residential or commercial complexes and automobiles to maintain optimal temperatures. Currently, it is commercially available in reflective, tinted, and neutral product types.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Solar Control Glass Market Trends:

With the ongoing construction activities, there has been an increasing demand for solar control glass across various residential and commercial complexes to maintain the optimal temperature in the indoor environment while minimizing the need for air conditioners. This is further supported by the growing awareness regarding the several beneficial properties of solar control glass, including providing sufficient cooling, reducing the usage of air conditioners, lowering operating costs, reducing sun glare, and allowing optimum light transmission. Furthermore, the rising environmental concerns, such as climate change, have prompted governments of different countries to promote the incorporation of solar control glass in automobiles to offer higher mileage and lower carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and fuel consumption, which is acting as another growth-inducing factor. In line with this, the advent of coated solar control glass and its large-scale integration with dual window glazing, automated self-cleaning systems, and e-thermal insulation solutions to improve privacy in the commercial sector are contributing to the market growth. Apart from this, strategic collaborations amongst key players to engineer a range of decorative architectural glass with enhanced efficacy to provide remarkable visual appeal are creating a positive outlook for the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 9.38 Billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 9.20% during 2022-2027.
