Industry Outlook

Smart glass is electronically switchable glass that is also known as switchable glass, privacy glass, electric glass, and intelligent glass. These are technically advanced types of glass that are coming into the mainstream product line from the niche market.

The rise in construction activities across the globe, coupled with high investments in smart and green infrastructure, along with an increase in automotive production, are driving the demand for smart glass. Further, growing renovation and restoration activities in both residential and commercial buildings are boosting the growth of the smart glass market worldwide as the existing buildings lack the infrastructure that is energy-efficient. As an alternative to traditional glass, smart glass manufacturers are ready to tap into the enormous opportunities available in the smart glass market. In 2016, Mercedes-Benz introduced the Suspended Particle Devices technology (SPD technology), which is a switchable glass assembly that offers different ranges of light to transmit. BMW AG and Daimler AG have also incorporated smart glass in windows and sunroofs in premium cars. LG used smart glass technology in its latest refrigerator, which has a dark glass panel that pops up light when it detects an outside stimulus and then becomes transparent to reveal the contents of the fridge.

Market Synopsis

Electrochromic is expected to dominate the market in the upcoming years.

By technology, the global smart glass market is segmented into suspended particle display, electrochromic, liquid crystal, photochromic, thermochromic, and micro-blinds, among which the electrochromic segment held the largest market share in 2017 and is expected to dominate the market during the forecasted period of 2018 to 2026. This is mainly attributed to the increase in the usage of smart windows for architectural and transportation applications, for which it has earned several investments from key market players.

Architecture is expected to be the fastest-growing sector for smart glass applications.

On the basis of application, the global smart glass market is segmented into architecture, transportation, power generation plants (solar), consumer electronics, and others, of which architecture is expected to be the fastest-growing sector. The smart glass used in architecture enhances the aesthetic value while reducing cooling, heating, and lighting costs. In the architecture application, smart glasses are used in partitions, windows, doors, elevators, and skylights. Different establishments using smart glass are schools and colleges, corporate offices, hospitals, residential buildings, malls, supermarkets, etc. Hence, higher usage of smart glass in a variety of establishments helped fuel the growth of the global smart glass market. Furthermore, the increase in the use of smart glass in sunroofs, sun visors, and rear window parts in premium cars, along with heavy demand for smart glass from the aviation industry, is fueling the overall growth of the global smart glass market.

Rapid demand for smart glass in the Asia Pacific is projected to drive market growth.

Based on geography, the global smart glass market is segmented into Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa. In 2017, Europe dominated the market mainly due to developed manufacturing businesses in countries such as the U.K., France, and Germany. In addition to this, government initiatives regarding energy harvesting and green buildings have further fueled the growth of the smart glass market, particularly in developed regions. North America followed Europe very closely owing to the increasing usage of smart glass in renewable sources such as solar power. Asia Pacific is considered the most lucrative region for the smart glass market due to the rapid economic development of nations such as Japan, China, and India. Some developing segments in the region include construction and housing, consumer electronics, transportation, and solar energy generation, which are anticipated to boost demand for smart glass in the region.

Few major players dominate the global smart glass market.

Asahi Glass Company Ltd., Saint Gobain S.A., Corning Incorporated, Pleotint LLC, Polytronix Inc., Ravenbrick LLC, Research Frontiers Inc., Aage Electrochromics, Inc., Schott Corporation, Smartglass International Ltd., and View Inc., among others, are some of the few major players enjoying significant market share in the industry. There is a good opportunity for industry consolidation as no single player has expertise in manufacturing all kinds of smart glass technologies that are required by various different end-use industries.
