The global solar control glass market size was valued at USD 5.17 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 10.68 billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 9.5% during the forecast period.

A solar control glass is a type of glass that has a special coating specially designed to reduce the extent of heat entering in a building. It absorbs and reflects heat, while also filtering light for lowered glare. The use of solar control glass reduces the need for air-conditioning. Various types of solar control glass offer different aesthetics; reflective, tinted, and neutral. The solar control coating on the glass reflects heat from the sun back outside of the conservatory and maintaining the interior cooler in summers, and significantly reduce the amount of heat which is able to pass through the conservatory, providing with a more usable and comfortable living space. Solar control glass is incorporated into dual glazing windows with self-cleaning systems and decorative glass solutions. A combination of solar control glass with Low E thermal insulation offers optimal temperature all year round. The growth opportunities in technologies for automobiles and infrastructures is expected to support market growth.

Green Construction for Sustainable Development to Fuel The Market Growth

Green construction is a holistic concept that a building, in its design, operation or construction brings positive impacts, on climate conditions and the natural environment. Green construction has various benefits such as the use of renewable energy, pollution and waste reduction, use of non-toxic materials, improved quality of design, operation, and structure of the building, and enables adaption of changing environment. The green construction process includes planning, construction, design, and operations of structures considerations of water use, energy use, material section, indoor environmental quality. The adoption of green construction technologies is expected to accelerate market growth.


Rising Awareness Regarding Carbon Emissions to Drive Solar Control Glass Market Growth

The rising emphasis on reducing carbon emissions will positively affect the growth of this market. Mandatory focus on carbon reduction in automobiles is also creating demand for solar control glass. This product provides cooling effects in adverse conditions. This has led to the high use of solar control glass in countries within a tropical climate. Usage of these glass in automobiles creates a cooling effect and leads to lesser use of air conditioning systems in the vehicle, making it fuel-efficient and lower CO2 emissions, this is expected to fuel the demand.

Technological Advancement is Driving the Demand for this Market

Solar control glazing is a technology that helps in minimizing temperature in buildings caused due to sunlight. Specifying solar control glazing, the most important factor to consider is the total solar heat transmission or g value. It includes a proportion of solar radiation getting transmitted through the glass and the proportion of solar radiation absorbed by glass material and re-exuded into the building. Generally, the lower the glass value, the lower is solar gain all through the glass. Installing of solar control glazing helps lessen pressure on air-conditioning systems within the building and reducing a building’s carbon emissions, making it appealing and efficient. This advancement will lead to the growth of the coated solar control glass market.


Raw Material Prices for Solar Control Glass Limiting Market Growth

Critical challenges affecting the solar control glass market trends, are the raw material prices. Silica sand and soda ash are the raw materials used for the manufacturing of glass, which is further used in solar control glass for the automobile industry. This will also hinder the growth of the overall automotive industry.
