The impact resistant glass market is estimated to grow from USD 18.60 Billion in 2016 to USD 29.18 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period. The base year considered for the study is 2016 and the market size is projected between 2017 and 2022. The increase in the use of impact resistant glass in the construction & infrastructural and automotive end-use industries is expected to drive the market in the coming years.

Objectives of the Study:

The report analyzes the global impact resistant glass market, in terms of volume (kilotons) and value (USD million). The report also estimates the size and growth potential of the impact resistant glass market across different segments, such as interlayers, end-use industry, and region. It forecasts the market size for 5 regions, namely, Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, and South America. The study also covers market opportunities and competitive landscape for stakeholders and market leaders.

The research methodology used to estimate and forecast the impact resistant glass market begins with gathering data on key company revenues and raw material costs through secondary sources, such as Factiva, D&B Hoovers, Manta, and others. Product offerings are also taken into consideration to determine the market segmentation. The bottom-up approach was used to arrive at the overall size of the impact resistant glass market from the revenue of key players. After arriving at the total market size, the overall market was split into several segments and sub-segments, which were then verified through primary research by conducting extensive interviews with CEOs, VPs, directors, and executives. Data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were used to complete the overall market engineering process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and sub-segments. The breakdown of profiles of primary interviewees is shown in the figure below:

The impact resistant glass market is estimated to be USD 20.08 Billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 29.18 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.8% during the forecast period. The growth of the market can be attributed to the high demand for impact resistant glass from the construction & infrastructure and automotive & transportation industries. The market witnessed a significant growth in the past few years, due to the increased demand for impact resistant glass from China, the US, Germany, India, Brazil, and Thailand.

The impact resistant glass market is segmented on the basis of interlayer, end-use industry, and region. Based on interlayer, the market is segmented into polyvinyl butyral, ionoplast polymer, and EVA. Polyvinyl butyral is the largest and projected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. The ionoplast polymer segment was the second largest segment in the impact resistant glass market in 2016, as applications of glass made with ionoplast polymer interlayers are growing in the construction & infrastructure industry.

Based on end-use industry, the impact resistant glass market is segmented into construction & infrastructure, automotive & transportation, and others. Construction & infrastructure was the largest segment of the market in 2016, owing to the growing demand for impact resistant glass in residential & commercial building projects and increasing government regulations pertaining to safety & security.

Asia Pacific was the largest market for impact resistant glass in 2016. India and China are major markets for impact resistant glass due to growing construction and infrastructure development activities, increasing automotive production, and rising installations of solar panels in both countries.
