The top three revenue-generating end-user segments of the global flat glass market are discussed below:
The increase in direct commercial real estate investment in major countries such as China, the US, the UK, India, and Japan will propel the market growth during the forecast period. In the construction sector, energy-efficient glass, which filters approximately 99.9% of the harmful UV rays and selectively reduces unwanted heat gain, is in demand. The rising awareness toward energy-efficient buildings will create opportunities for the global flat glass market.
According to Ajay Adhikari, a lead glass and ceramics research analyst from Technavio, “New residential and commercial building projects such as apartments, offices, retail malls, educational institutes, healthcare centers, and hotels will drive the global flat glass market. Globally, the building and construction sector is witnessing high growth, specifically in APAC, which is driving the demand for flat glass. The rising demand for high-rise buildings and green buildings, both in the residential and commercial sectors, is providing an impetus to the energy-efficient glass.”
Flat glasses are used in windscreens, windows, and mirrors in the automotive industry. The comfort of passengers has driven the use of flat glass in this industry. The new and improved choice for flat glass glazing in different colors of windscreens is expected to create a demand for flat glass in the automotive industry.
“The rising fuel prices, coupled with the rising temperature, will force consumers to opt for sunlight-controlled flat glass. It lowers the temperature inside the car and makes the car fuel-efficient. This saves energy, thereby providing more fuel for vehicle functioning. Due to these factors, the use of flat glass in the automotive sector is expected to increase in the next five years,” adds Ajay.
An increased investment for solar panels and for renewable energy, in major countries such as the UK, the US, China, and Japan will propel the market growth. Moreover, the advances in technology in the global solar control glass market such as Romag PVB technology, which filters approximately 99.9% of the harmful UV rays and selectively reduces unwanted heat gain, and the rising awareness of energy-efficient buildings will create opportunities in the market.
Currently, flat glass that is used in solar glass finds use in shopping malls, commercial offices, hotels and restaurants, and government buildings. The market has a lot of potential because of its benefits such as high transmittance for the use of natural daylight, high thermal insulation, and reduction of heating costs in commercial buildings.
