Construction Glass Market Outlook - 2022

Global Construction Glass Market Size was valued at $76,036 million in 2015, and is expected to reach $121,877 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period. Construction glass is a translucent coating material utilized for glass doors, glass windows, and transparent walls. The glass possesses properties such as thermal insulation, water proofing, and energy conservation, thus making it a viable option as a building material in construction businesses.

Construction Glass Market

Asia-Pacific dominates the construction glass market throughout the forecast period due to growth in regulations and infrastructure development in emerging countries such as India, China, Indonesia, and others. Major players focus on the development of energy-efficient glass products to reach wider customer base. For example, PPG Industries, Inc. launched Solarban z75 low-e glass that minimizes the amount of heat entering into buildings. It plays an important role in building design and provides superior solar control properties to support sustainable design.

Rise in construction industry, advancements in the glass industry, and need for energy-efficient temperature management are the key factors that drive the construction glass market growth. Construction glass helps to increase the influx of natural light in the building. This property of glass is used in advanced glazing solutions to significantly reduce the need for heating and cooling in the buildings, consequently reducing energy consumption and associated CO2 emissions. In addition, advancements such as solar control glass, self-cleaning glass, sound reducing glass, and insulated glazing glass have increased the demand for construction glass products in residential and nonresidential constructions.
