Technology Analysis 

"SPD held the Largest Revenue Share in the Smart Glass/ Mirror in Automotive Market in the year 2018"

Suspended Particle Devices (SPD) glasses held the largest revenue share in the smart glass or mirror in the automotive market owing to its feature of saving electricity greater than 25%. SPD glasses control solar radiation that automatically reduces HVAC energy consumption. These glasses have an increasing demand in the automotive sector mainly due to favorable government policies regarding energy consumption. For instance, the USA has set a definite standard for the electricity consumption in light-duty vehicles for around 570 to 1140 Tera Watt-hour (TWh).

On the other hand, electrochromic glasses expected to witness magnificent growth during the forecast period. Its property to offer a high blockage ratio for harmful ultraviolet and infrared rays coupled with reduced response time are some of the prime factors favoring its escalating growth.
