Heat gain through a window is a major factor for increasing cooling demand in commercial and residential spaces. Solar control films minimize the radiation level of the solar energy that enters through window in a home as well office spaces. It works on the principle of reflectivity and absorptivity in which sun rays are either reflected the environment or absorbed.

Reduced solar heat gain through window enhances the comfort of enclosed space and saves significant energy required for air conditioning. In the last couple of decades’ solar control films has gained utmost importance due to rising commercial and residential buildings. Globalization has enormously benefited the local business sector which leads to an increase in infrastructure development.

Heat dissipation and thermal comfort are essential in commercial spaces for enhancing the comfort level. Solar control film can effectively reduce solar heat gain by using reflectivity or absorptivity principle. Thus reduce the requirement of air conditioning resulting in energy saving.

Key Market Driver -

Key Market Driver – Tremendous infrastructure development and demand from automotive sector

Key Market Restraint -

Key Market Restraint – Legal regulation on tinted films

The solar control film market is segmented into film type, absorber type, and application. Film type is further divided into clear films, dyed films, vacuum coated films, and other films. Safety films are popular because of their excellent properties such as UV/IR radiation protection, energy efficiency, safety from high impact, ignition resistant, and ensure excellent optical clarity. Organic type is used in safety films which provide higher safety due to its high thickness. The solar control films market is dominated by commercial sector owing to its extensive application to save energy

The intensive economic growth leading to a rise in infrastructural development resulting in the extensive installation of solar control film to minimize heat intake to save massive amount of energy required of air conditioning. The automotive sector is gaining importance across the world and provide a substantial market for the growth of the solar control films market.

Prohibition on using tinted glass and regulations on window film in the automotive industry is a major restraining factor. Widow film also reduces visible light transmission through a car window which can lead to accidents. These factors can restrain the growth of the solar control film

Key Players Covered

The major solar control films companies are Sekisui S-Lec BV, Solar Gard Saint-Gobain, 3M, Avery Dennison Hanita, Eastman Chemical Company, Madico, Inc., Solar Screen, Garware Suncontrol Window Glass Films- India, Recon Blinds, Solar control Company, The Window Film Company, and Top Colour Film Ltd.

Regional Analysis

The solar control films market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. The solar control films market in North America is driven by construction activities in the United States, extensive installation of solar control films by IT parks, commercial and residential buildings. European countries are cautious about rising GHG emission and adapting various energy-efficient technology on large.
