Krypton Market to Hit USD 60.95 Million by 2029; Heightened Krypton Usage in Glazed Windows to Propel the Market Forward

June 30, 2022 | Chemicals & Materials

The global krypton market size reached USD 47.45 million in 2021. The market value is slated to increase from USD 57.31 million in 2022 to USD 60.95 million by 2029, recording 0.9% CAGR during 2022-2029. Increasing application in glazed windows and space exploration will drive the market forward over the projected period. Fortune Business Insights™ presents this information in its report titled “Krypton Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Type (N3, N4.5, and N5), By Application (Lighting, Window Insulation, Laser, and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2022-2029”.

Delays in Construction Projects Hampered Growth during COVID-19 Pandemic

Since the announcement of lockdowns in various nations throughout the world, the supply of building and construction materials was severely hampered. As a result, many non-medical infrastructure development projects were abandoned or delayed, resulting in a decline in demand for window insulating materials such glass panels. According to the U.S. National Glass Association, people in various cities, including New York avoided glass fitting. Furthermore, as a result of the cancellation of events, such as public meetings, weddings, and concerts, demand for lighting goods declined. These factors affected the market growth during COVID-19.

Israel Institute of Technology Launches Three New Kr-Powered Nano-Satellites

The Israel Institute of Technology rolled out three new nano-satellites, powered by a krypton-based propulsion system. The new nano-satellites are launched strategically to monitor the signals received from the Earth and to track the real-time locations of aircraft vessels.

Window Glazing Applications to Drive Market Growth in the Future

Krypton gas is predominantly employed in the production of high-end double and triple glazed windows, which is fueling the krypton market growth. It is highly insulating both thermally and acoustically. It is more expensive than the most common gas in the market, argon. However, krypton is gaining popularity as the need for high-performance and energy-efficient windows develops. Glazed windows are seeing a surge in demand from hot climate regions, such as the Middle East, to cold climate regions such as Europe and other parts of the world. These windows allow for low-temperature absorption in the summer and high-temperature retention in the winter, resulting in significant cost savings on air conditioning.
