Photosensitive Glass Market Overview:

The global photosensitive glass market accounted for $6,355.8 in 2017 and is anticipated to reach $10,885.3 by 2025, registering a CAGR of 6.8% from 2018 to 2025.

Photosensitive glass is also known as photo-structurable glass or photo-machinable glass which belongs to lithium silicate family. Colored pictures can be produced by exposing this glass to ultraviolet light. The colored images are formed in the photosensitive glass with the help of mask by microscopic metallic particles, when it is exposed to short wave radiations, such as UV light.

The global photosensitive glass market is still at a nascent stage and is expected to explore considerable growth opportunities during the assessment period (2018-2025). Photosensitive glass is lithium silicate family glass, which is used for decorative purpose in residential application. It is used for decorations owing to its attractive appearance and unique property to capture image. Hence, gradual rise in penetration of photosensitive glass is considered as a key growth factor.

Construction industry is also emerging as a promising consumer of this glass due to its unique appearance. Photosensitive glass is used in ornamental tiles, wall & partition beautification, and in large windowpanes in architectural applications. This in turn drives the growth of the market. Furthermore, developing use of photosensitive glass to produce micro circuits through photosensitive glass in electronic industry also boosts the market growth. Driven by these factors, growth of this market is restrained by high price of photosensitive glass linked with limited presence of photosensitive glass manufacturers. The global photosensitive glass market is expected to witness lucrative growth opportunities due to large-scale usage of the glass in various end use industries, such as automotive and electronics.

The photosensitive glass market is segmented based on application and region. Based on application, the global market is segmented into construction, ornaments, decorative, electronics, and automotive. Based on region, the global market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Analyst Review

According to the CXOs, the photosensitive glass market is at a nascent stage and its applications are still developing at an industrial level. Currently, the glass is being used for aesthetic purposes in the household end-use industry; however, its potential applications are anticipated to experience growth in the electronics industry. This product is used for microfabrication to produce various electronic and optoelectronic devices with photolithography. These devices are used in the production of micro-circuits, micro-organic memory devices, micro-sensors, lab-on-a-chip/micro-total analysis systems, as well as micro-solar panels and piezoelectric devices for energy harvesting.

The electronics industry is witnessing a trend of compact devices due to high preference for consumer electronics devices. Due to which extensive adoption of micro-circuit is expected over the forthcoming years, this in turn expected to expand use of photosensitive glass in the electronics industry. Considering this scenario, the new market players may enter into the market.
