What’s Contributing to Rapid Demand Growth for Coated Glass?

“Significant Expansion of Construction Industry Widening Application Scope of Coated Glass”

Coated glass is used extensively in the building & construction sector for windows, partitions, facades, etc., as energy-saving glass owing to its capacity to reduce the expenses of heating and air conditioning for building owners. In recent years, there has been an increased emphasis on improving the energy efficiency of buildings.

  • According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), buildings, including public, residential, and commercial structures, account for approximately 36% of the world's energy consumption.

Over the past two decades, there has been a significant rise in the implementation of building regulations to adopt energy-efficient practices. Metal oxide and/or metallic coating are applied on low E glasses to improve energy efficiency and solar management. Therefore, the enforcement of certain building rules and the expansion of the global construction sector are predicted to contribute to the rising demand for coated glass.

“Widespread Use of Coated Glass in Cars to Enhance Thermal Comfort”

Glass-ceramic and glassy properties of coated glass can minimize the degree of wear and corrosion to tarnishing or scratching. High-tech coated glass is used widely in windshields to enhance thermal comfort in cars. These windshields protect occupants from airborne and wind objects, including insects, dust, and rocks, and offer an aerodynamically shaped window with front-facing. UV coatings are used to filter out some harmful ultraviolet radiation. At present, the windshield is opted as a safety device same as airbags and seatbelts.

What Challenges are Faced by Coated Glass Manufacturers?

“Health Hazards Associated with Metallic Coating”

Metallic coatings play a crucial role in the production of coated glass. However, industrial workers dealing closely with these coatings may face specific safety and health risks. These workers are at increased risk of inhaling these harmful substances while preparing surfaces or any additional applications required for coatings. Inhaling HAPs (hazardous air pollutants) and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) results in health issues, including irritation of the skin or eyes, nausea, dizziness, and headaches.

Category-wise Insights

Soft-coated glass held 68.1% of the global coated glass market share in 2023 owing to its ultra-low emissivity that enables the reflection of more heat compared to hard-coated products. In addition, the rising use of these double-glazed glass units in construction is also driving growth opportunities.

Why is Demand for Soft-coated Glass Increasing Faster Compared to Hard-coated Glass?

“Higher Visible Transmission and Optical Clarity of Soft-Coated Glass”

Sales of soft-coated glass are forecasted to advance at 9.1% CAGR and reach US$ 50.71 billion by the end of 2034. The ultra-low emissivity of soft-coated glass ensures it reflects more heat compared to hard-coated products. Moreover, more visible transmission along with higher optical clarity of soft-coated glass in comparison to hard-coated products is driving its sales.

Soft-coated glass provides up to 70% less ultraviolet transmission compared to traditional glazing. The sputtered coating is widely employed in colder climates as it allows glass to radiate heat into the room. Greater optical clarity and excellent visible light transmission compared to hard-coated glass are projected to widen growth opportunities for players.

Why is There Increased Demand for Coated Glass in the Architecture Sector?

“Increasing Use of Coated Glass to Maintain Interior Temperatures of Buildings”

Worldwide demand for coated glass from the architecture sector is predicted to increase at 9.1% CAGR and reach a value of US$ 65.81 billion by 2034.

Coated glass is used extensively in commercial and residential buildings to maintain cool interiors in hot regions by allowing visible light transmission and reflecting outside heat. Further, in colder areas, coated glass is used to maintain warm interiors by re-radiating within heat. This is predicted to decrease the price of heating in colder climates.

To achieve some value-added characteristics, including an ornamental look, safety and security, and noise cancellation, coated glass is mixed with other glass types.
