The global smart glass market is expected to grow from USD 2.34 Billion in 2015 to USD 8.13 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 19.2% between 2016 and 2022. The emerging automobile and architectural buildings end–use industry create a huge demand for the smart glass market across the world. The major factors driving the growth of the market are the need for energy-efficient solutions and government regulations for green buildings. Furthermore, the growing automotive sector is expected to drive the market in the near future.

The scope of this report covers the smart glass market by technology, end–use industry, and region. The electrochromic technology is expected to hold the largest market share and dominate the market between 2016 and 2022 owing to the growing demand for energy-efficient solutions, which can be achieved by installing smart windows. With these smart windows, the energy consumption can be brought down to 40% according to the industry players.

As the smart glass industry is research-intensive, the capital requirement is significant. While smart glass technology has had a presence in the industry for more than 10 years, it is only within the last few years that manufacturers have received the funding and support necessary to launch a large volume of production. With the newly available resources and financial support, the smart glass technology has found more applications in various industry sectors in the last few years. The concept of Internet of Things is used in the smart glass sector to make the ultimate product highly efficient, reliable, and advanced.

North America and Europe are the biggest contributors in this industry in terms of consumption and manufacturing capacities. Currently, Europe is the leading market in smart glass owing to the increasing need to reduce the energy consumption and incorporate energy-efficient building materials and technologies in the architectural and transportation sectors. The APAC smart glass market is also expected to witness significant growth between 2016 and 2022.

Smart Glass Market

The major factors restraining the growth of market are the high cost of smart glass, lack of awareness about smart glass among end consumers, and delayed switching response time for changing the states from transparent to opaque or vice-versa for large surface area. Moreover, the high investment involved in the manufacturing and R&D of smart glass poses a key challenge for smart glass market players.

The major players in this industry include SAGE Electrochromics (U.S.), Research Frontiers, Inc. (U.S.), View, Inc. (U.S.), AGC, Ltd. (Japan), PPG Industries (U.S.), Gentex Corp. (U.S.), Hitachi Chemicals Co., Ltd. (Japan), Glass Apps. (U.S.), Pleotint, LLC  (U.S.), RavenBrick LLC  (U.S.), Scienstry Inc. (U.S.), SmartGlass International Ltd. (Ireland), and SPD Control System Corporation (U.S.).
