Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global electrochromic glass market:
Robust demand for energy efficient systems
The advancement in nanotechnology, environmental concerns (global warming), and rising pressure on the energy efficiency of buildings has necessitated the application of energy-efficient systems translating into the use of electrochromic glass in different applications, particularly in the construction of buildings.
Kshama Upadhyay, a lead glass and ceramics research analyst at Technavio, says, “The energy saving solution of electrochromic glass is because it channelizes and reflects the heat and light passing through the glass. Further, well executed and conceived architectural designs will be able to produce an acceptable and energy-efficient indoor environment in buildings.”
Advancements in the automobile sector
The continuance of the automobile industry with a focus on equipping vehicles with energy-saving devices has fueled the demand for electrochromic glass. Electrochromic glass goes into vehicle components such as windows and roofs of premium automobiles. Globally reputed brands such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz employ smart glass technology pertaining to the use of electrochromic suspended particles.
“Electrochromic glass is also used in buses, trains, marine craft, and aircraft. The ongoing trend pertaining to embedding electronics, including sensors to switch automobile windows into infotainment displays represents yet another favorable factor for the market,” adds Kshama.
Adoption of green or LEED buildings
The mounting public interest of national government agencies and municipalities has sparked off the growth of environment-friendly buildings. This trend has necessitated the construction of green buildings, which has emerged as a global trend. A green building refers to a building that reduces negative impacts on climate and natural resources.
