Self-Cleaning Glass Market Analysis

Self-cleaning glass is a special type of glass that keeps itself free of dirt and other harsh environmental conditions. It is a low-maintenance glass that is made by depositing a thin layer of chemical that has photolytic and hydrophilic properties. Self-cleaning glass provides various advantages such as less maintenance, environment-friendly product, and very easy to maintain. It combines both self-cleaning and solar control properties, which attracts home owners for the ultimate in glass solutions. Self-cleaning glass is used in facades and areas with higher elevation that are hard to reach for manual cleaning. Furthermore, nanotechnology process is used for fabricating this special type of glass.

COVID-19 scenario analysis:

  • COVID-19 had a partial impact on the solar power projects as it depends on natural resources, for example, wind and sunlight while on the other side, rooftop solar projects are the most adversely affected in the renewable sector as most of them are small-sized companies.
  • Disruption in supply chain has affected business as most of solar cells and modules are largely imported from China. In addition, companies have slow down their production.
  • The outbreak has affected the automotive industry drastically as automobile and component manufacturing plants are closed down globally due to decrease in consumer footfalls in showrooms and vehicle sales. 
  • COVID-19 has a massive impact on construction projects as most of the construction work is stalled.

Top impacting factors: Market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis

Rise in demand for self-cleaning glass in solar panels and green building trends are expected to boost the growth of the self-cleaning glass market. The advantage of self-cleaning glass is that it is cost-effectiveness. The fast shift toward the use of renewable energy further strengthens the self-cleaning glass market. Furthermore, with growing infrastructure, the demand for durable, scratch resistant & self-cleaning windows and facades is increasing, which drives the market. In addition, rise in interest for eco-friendly glass products is the key opportunity for the self-cleaning glass market. This glass does not need to be cleaned regularly as normal glass. Companies introduce new products with advanced solutions in the market. Rise in demand for self-cleaning glass for use in skylights, conservatories, and rooftops is the major driver for the market. 

The low effectiveness of self-cleaning glass in areas with low rainfall and less sun exposure is a major factor that restrains the market. Moreover, high price of self-cleaning glass compared to conventional glass is expected to restrain the expansion of the self-cleaning glass market. Moreover, self-cleaning glass does not completely cleans itself automatically. Therefore, people prefer conventional glass. Additionally, there is lack of awareness among people in developing countries about self-cleaning glass technology, which is expected to hinder the self-cleaning glass market.

New product launches to boost the market:

International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI) has developed self-cleaning solar panels, which is another breakthrough in the solar industry. The institute has used nano-technology to build solar panels that are capable of cleaning themselves.

Adding to this, Znshine Solar, the largest global photovoltaic (PV) solutions has launched G12 evolution era – Znshine Graphene Series in Beijing, China. Znshine Solar introduced the G12 graphene series - 12-busbar graphene module, 5-busbar graphene module and double-glass graphene module. The application of graphene film layer increases the light transmission performance of the glass while the graphene-coating modules have an attractive hydrophilicity.

Surge in usage of self-cleaning glass in solar panels applications:

By region, the global self-cleaning glass market is fragmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific is expected to account for the highest growth with China, Japan, and India being the key countries. Increase in income and expenditure levels are the major reasons for the growth of the market in Asia-Pacific countries. Based on application type, the market is segmented as residential construction, non-residential construction, solar panels, and automotive. The residential segment is expected to hold the largest market share due to increase in new construction projects. Apart from the use of self-cleaning glass in the construction industry, its usage is increasing in the energy and healthcare industries. Various advantages of self-cleaning glass are reduced water consumption during cleaning and no requirement of chemicals to further clean the surface. Moreover, self-cleaning glasses are known to be fog and glare resistance.
