A glass curtain wall is a system of bonding glass to a building’s structure with the help of a metal frame and a high-strength and high-performance silicone sealant. Further, these systems are mostly aluminum-framed thin walls and contain in-fills of glass or other metal panels. Curtain walls are specifically designed for industrial and construction applications. The glass curtain wall market is estimated at USD 44.5 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 73.4 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 10.50%. The demand for glass curtain wall is driven by the growing building & construction industry due to their durability, safety, and greater aesthetic appeal.
