Solar Reflective Glass Market Research, 2031
The global solar reflective glass market size was valued at $5.3 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $10.6 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2022 to 2031.
A solar reflective glass is a glass with a special coating designed to reduce the amount of heat entering a building. It reflects and absorbs heat as well as filters light for reduced glare. Using a solar reflective glass can reduce the need for air-conditioning and blinds. In addition, ordinary glass allows nearly 80% of visible light, heat, and ultraviolet radiation to pass through without being absorbed or reflected. This results in soaring energy costs and discomfort for the building's occupants. Reflective glass on the other hand allows optimum natural daylight through, thereby improving occupants' health and well-being. Moreover, it reduces the energy used in artificial lighting, resulting in significant savings in electricity costs and it even blocks UV-rays.
The growth of the global solar reflective glass market is driven by surge in demand from house decoration. Solar reflective glasses are widely used in automobiles to reduce the amount of heat entering in a car. However, rise in demand for cars across the globe has led to increase in the demand for solar reflective glasses, which may create ample of opportunities for the market. Moreover, high cost associated with such glasses may act as a major restraining factor for the market. Furthermore, Middle East and North America are the potential markets for solar reflective glass market, due to presence of large number of superstructures and cars.
In addition, the development of automotive, construction, and aeronautical industries across the developing countries, such as Brazil, China, and India have propelled the demand for solar reflective glasses, which, in turn, led to increase in demand for solar reflective glass and may act as the major factor for the solar reflective glass market growth. Further more rapid expansion in decoration of glass in exteriors of house has led to increase in the demand for solar reflective glass however, rise in urbanization acts as the major driving factor for the market growth. Another key factors impacting the growth of the solar reflective glass market is increase in usage of solar reflective glass in automotive industry as it reduces substantial share of sunlight and declines the amount ofheat entering into the car.Moreover,according to the U.S. Energy department, solar energy is the fastest growing and most affordable source of newelectricity in America. Over 3 million installations have been built across the country—with 1 million being builtin the last two years.
The global solar reflective glass market analysis is segmented into type, coating method, application, and region. By type, the market is bifurcated into reflective and absorptive. Depending on coating method, it is fragmented into hard coated and soft coated. On the basis of application, it is segregated into automotive, commercial, and residential. Region wise, it is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
The global solar refelective glass market forecast covers the profile of leading players that are studied in the report which includes Heliotrope, Guardian Industries, PPG Industries, Asahi Glass, Ravenbrick LLC, e-Chromic, Saint-Gobain, Gentex, Polytron, Xinyi Auto,Chromogenics AB,NSG,Central Glass,Corning,Euroglas GmbH and Gentex Corporation
Based on type reflective is the fastest growing segment during the forecast period.This is attributed to Surge in demand for reflective glass from construction industry led to increase in the production of solar reflective glass market, which act as the major driver of the market.
Based on coating method Hard coated is the fastest growing segment during the forecast period. owing to the fact that these glasses could also be used in single glazing without any fear of losing the coating however, the mentioned advantages of the hard coated solar reflective glass may act as the major driving factor for the market.
Based on application commercial is the fastest growing segment during the forecast period.This is attributed to use of solar reflective glass in exterior as well interior of building may act as the major driving factor for the market.
Based on region Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing segment during the forecast period.Owing to Strong demand for solar reflective glass from Asia-Pacific due to high population density may act as the major driving factor for the market. In addition, Russia, India and China are the major players of Asia in glass industry,which, in turn, has boosted the demand for solar reflective glass.
Impact of COVID-19 on the solar reflective glass
The impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the coated solar reflective glass market can be classified as adverse. With the implementation of lockdowns across the globe as a measure to prevent the widespread of the COVID 19 pandemic, the construction activities for both residential and commercial segment were on a halt or cancelled. The maintenance of the pre-existing structures was also postponed. On the other hand, the supply chain has improved, showing a positive movement of man, material and money to restore the growth of the global solar reflective glass market. Furthermore, the financial health of the construction & building industry as well as individuals also reaching to pre-covid level is rendering the builders to construct and the public to purchase or renovate their establishments. All these factors cumulatively led to show a growth of solar reflective glass market.
