Market Insight

Smart glass is an innovative building material that is made up of electromagnetic glass to create room partitions, electronic curtains, privacy windows for the home and office, vision panels, and other applications. These smart glasses are electrically switchable surfaces that are able to change their properties when voltage, light, and heat are applied to them. The smart glass transforms from translucent to transparent bypass an electric current into the panels. Smart glass technologies contain electrochromic, photochromic, thermochromic, suspended particle, micro-blind and polymer dispersed liquid crystal devices.


The smart glass market has been severely affected by the spread of COVID-19. Disruption in the supply chain of smart glass has been the major obstacle for the growth of the market during pandemic. Moreover, the demand for smart glass has also been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, the government lockdowns coupled with the concern over spread of coronavirus led many industries such as automotive and consumer electronics to reduce their production and close their manufacturing units in some countries. However, as the pandemic situation came under control, many countries including China, India, Thailand and South Korea eased the lockdown orders, restoring smart glass production to normal volume. This brings back the supply of smart glass to its pre-pandemic level. Moreover, as the pandemic situation cools down, the production of products using smart glass such as vehicles, consumer electronics and buildings is anticipated to grow. This, in turn, boosts the demand for smart glass from these industries.


Rapidly increasing the use of smart glass for developments in automotive industries and government initiatives to construct energy-efficient and eco-friendly buildings drive the growth of the smart glass market. Automotive smart glass supports temperature control, protection of interiors from degradation/staining from UV, dimmable shading in all windows to diminish blinding glare, projection applications for digital signage, and security in armored vehicles. In addition, the enlargement of application areas for smart glass technology and its various advantages such as energy efficiency, reducing carbon emission, and providing comfort for users are expected to enhance the market growth of smart glasses over the forecast period. However, High initial cost and lack of technical expertise are considered to be the restraining factors for the growth of the smart glass market. Moreover, inclinations of consumers towards energy conservation using smart glass technologies, and recent advancements in smart glass technologies are expected to serve more opportunities for companies working in this market in upcoming years.


The report provides regional analysis covering geographies such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World. North America dominates the market of smart glass due to the favorable government rules and regulations. It holds a 37.41% smart glass market share in 2018. Europe is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.58% because governments in the European countries are planned to introduce smart glass technology in several industrial applications. Asia-Pacific region is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR of 20.28% over the forecasted period. The countries like China and India offer great opportunities for automotive market growth, so smart glass manufacturers are trying to expand their business in these emerging economies.
