The global market for Smart Glass is projected to exceed US$7.5 billion by 2024, driven by the increasing focus on energy efficient building technologies, robust demand from the transportation sector, favorable regulatory environment, and development of innovative and advanced window solutions. Developments in thermochromic and electrochromic technologies, reactive glazing technology and privacy switchable glass technologies among others, are all poised to spur future growth in the market. Also, huge opportunities exist for smart windows in the retrofit segment as majority of the windows in current buildings worldwide are not energy efficient. Europe represents the largest market worldwide, supported by modernization of existing buildings and the resulting replacement of window and door glass. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a projected CAGR of 16.3% over the analysis period, driven by factors such as healthy construction sector, growing government focus and investments on building smart cities; rapid urbanization, digitalizing lifestyles and rising consumer demand for smart home solutions; and growing penchant especially in the commercial and office sector for modern architectural and interior design styles; and growing popularity of glass buildings and skyscrapers and the ensuing need for durable, strong and energy efficient architectural glass solutions.
