Polyvinyl butyral (PVB) resin is a thermoplastic compound manufactured by condensation reaction of polyvinyl alcohol and butyraldehyde. It offers strong binding, optical clarity, toughness & flexibility, and adhesion to many surfaces. PVB is used as an interlayer, which binds two panes of glass together.
The interlayer holds the glass together in the event of a collision and prevents the glass from breaking. It exhibits special characteristics such as transparency, impact resistance, high tensile strength, and elasticity, which make it suitable for the manufacture of safety glass in automotive and construction sectors.
Heat insulated PVB laminated glasses are used in windshields of automobile and in architectural glass, owing to their durability, safety, sound reduction, UV radiation control, solar energy control, weather resistance, and enhanced aesthetic appearance. In addition, there are increasing applications of PVB films in photovoltaic cells.
Heat insulated PVB films in solar cells provide thermal insulation, high resistance to oxygen & vapor, and protection from external impacts, which drive the growth of the global heat insulated PVB film market. Increase in government initiatives for renewable energy usage, rise in investment in solar energy, and reduction in custom & excise duties for solar panel parts in countries such as China and India propel the market growth in solar energy sector.
Furthermore, the use of heat insulated PVB films in residential & commercial buildings helps to meet requirements of advanced energy codes, provides comfort to building occupants, and contributes toward green building certifications, which fuels the market growth.
Rise in population has led to increased construction activities in Middle East, India, China, Brazil, and others, which is expected to propel the market growth. Moreover, the development of automotive industry is expected to further accelerate the market growth during the forecast period. However, volatility in raw material prices and high recycling activities of PVB films in Europe & North America hamper the market growth.
