The global insulating glass window market size was valued at $11,105.7 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $21,160.6 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 6.9% from 2021 to 2030. An insulating glass window is used to decrease heat transmission over a portion of the building envelope by combining many panes of glass into a single unit. Multiple panes of glass and gas add extra barriers to heat and cold transfer. It reduces the need for artificial air conditioning by regulating room temperature and preventing air from escaping via windows.


Installing insulating glass windows mightsave up to 15% on annual air conditioning costs. As a result, this is expected to boosttheinsulating glass window marketin coming years. Furthermore, governments have enforced regulations to reduce home carbon footprints,due to increase in awareness of sustainability as a result of acknowledgement of climate change. To implement such measures, governments often offer various subsidies for the replacement of old windows and furnaces, which lead to wastage of energy. Such subsidies drive the demand for insulating glass window.Furthermore, the increase in government initiatives for energy-efficient buildings is expected to create remunerative growth opportunities for the expansion of the insulating glass window market during the forecast period.

The novel coronavirus has rapidly spread across various countries and regions, causing enormous impact on lives of people and overall community. Originating as a crisis to human health, it now poses significant threat to worldwide trade, economy, and finance. Due to the continuous lockdown in key countries, the COVID-19 pandemic has halted production of many items in the insulating glass window business. Key players in insulating glass window industry can afford a complete lockdown only for a limited period, after which they would have to alter their investment plans. On the contrary, number of COVID-19 cases isexpected to reduce in the near term as vaccine for COVID-19 has been introduced in the insulating glass window market. This is further expected to lead to re-initiation of insulating glass windowcompanies at their full-scale capacities, which would aid the market to recover by the start of 2022. After COVID-19 infection casesbeginto decline, equipment and machinery producers are likely to focus on protecting their staff, operations, and supply networks to respond to urgent emergencies and establish new methods of working.

Double Glazing segment is projected to grow at a significant CAGR


The global insulated glass window market is segmented into glazing type, sealant type, enduser, and region. By glazing type, the market is categorized into double glazing, triple glazing, and others. Depending on sealant type, the insulating glass window market is fragmented into hot melt, PIB primary sealants, polysulfide, and silicon. The hot melt segment is anticipated to grow with the highest CAGR throughout the forecast period.This is attributed to high demand for hot melt butyl sealant for insulating glass, owing to its advantageous properties such as easy gunnability at low temperatures, low viscosity, reasonable cost, and anti-sag characteristics. Moreover, rapid expansion of the food processing and automotive industries fuels the demand for the hot melt butyl sealant for insulated glass. Furthermore, increase in focus on durability and aestheticview of the windows is expected to offerlucrative opportunities for insulating glass window market growth. The advanced physical properties and features such as weather-resistanceas well as low maintenance and anti-rustproperties are likely to propel the sale of hot melt butyl sealant during the forecast period.

Analyst Review

The insulating glass window market has witnessed significant growth in the past few years, due to increase in global energy demand and decrease in energy &air conditioning costs.

In residential areas, insulating glass windows help in minimizing the use of artificial heating and cooling in a building by providing substantial protection from heat loss and heat gain from the outer atmosphere.

Moreover,insulating glass windows are manufactured using high-quality vinyl, aluminum, and other material frames, and include double or triple glass attached on this frame with the help of spacers. This design eliminates all heat input or loss from the windows, lowering the room's air conditioning expenses. Hence, insulating glass window market is anticipated toexhibit significant growth during the forecast period.
