Smart glass, also known as switchable glass, is a glass which can alter its light transmission properties on application of voltage, light or heat. These glasses are used in windows, skylights, doors, partitions and have extended their range in automotive industry, aircrafts and in marine applications.
Smart glass technologies comprise of electrochromic, photochromic, thermochroic, suspended particle, micro-blind and polymer dispersed liquid crystal devices. The market is segmented on the basis of types as architectural, electronics, solar power generation and transportation, architectural segment being the major market segment.
Global smart glass market is estimated to grow at a significantly in the forthcoming years. The major market drivers are increasing demand in architectural and transportation sectors. In addition, shift to energy efficient building technologies is an important factor contributing to the growth. Increasing production in automotive industry led to rising demand for smart glasses.
Benefits of smart glass such as control over light, heat and ability to block the UV rays became one of the factors for its prominence. The electronics segment is expected to be a prospective market owing to its innovations and research to produce highly advanced devices such as digital eyeglasses and screens. Certain aspects are preventing the growth of the global smart glass market. Comparable cost with its substitutes and lack of awareness about its benefits are inhibiting the market growth.
North America accounts the major share in the global smart glass. However, European market is expected to overtake the North American smart glass market in the forecast period. This will be resultant to the increasing demand for large size advanced windows in residential and commercial architectural structures. Further, market is distributed in regions of Latin America, Asia-Pacific Western Europe, Eastern Europe and Middle East & Africa.
