Low E-glass Market Trends

  • Growing urban development initiatives on a big scale is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for low e-glass is being driven by the rising urban development initiatives on a big scale. Low-E-glass, sometimes referred to as low-emissivity glass, is made to lessen the amount of UV and infrared radiation that enters our home while simultaneously limiting the amount of light that may flow through a building's glass. Inside Low-E-glass windows, there is a microscopic-thin, translucent layer that deflects heat and keeps the space cool. The low-E coating helps to keep a steady temperature within the house by reflecting internal heat.

Additionally, the demand for low-E-glass is significantly influenced by the construction of residential and commercial buildings. The worldwide construction sector was estimated to be worth USD 22.04 trillion in 2020 by the World Bank U.S. The demand for low-E-glass is significantly fueled by these examples of revenue development in the construction of commercial and residential buildings. Due to energy-saving, solar control, and better thermal insulation, low-E-glasses are being employed more and more in modern construction and green buildings. In comparison to uncoated regular toughened glass units, installing low-E-glass units is typically more expensive for residential and commercial windows. The cost of Low-E coated windows is approximately 10% to 15% higher than that of standard windows, according to the US Department of Energy.

Low-E-glass panels are increasingly being used by home and business builders, developers, architects, and green building contractors due to its ability to save energy. Additionally, to improve mileage, heat insulation, sun control, and CO2 emissions, automobile manufacturers are switching from standard to low-E-glass. The characteristics of low-E-glass also contribute to reducing the U-value and shading coefficient (SC), which improves the overall energy economy of automobiles. The rise of the low-E-glass business is being largely fueled by the need to lower energy costs by lowering carbon emissions.

For instance, the International Energy Agency (IEA) Paris estimates that buildings utilize roughly 30% of the energy consumed worldwide and 55% of the electricity. Numerous attempts to create energy-efficient buildings are being undertaken as a result of growing efforts to reduce energy usage at an individual level. The market for low-E-glass is being driven by conscious efforts in the residential and commercial sectors to reduce energy usage. Thus, result in driving the Low E-glass market revenue.

Low E-glass Market Segment Insights

Low E-glass Glazing Insights

The Low E-glass market segmentation, based on Glazing, includes Single Glazing, Double Glazing, and Triple Glazing. The single glazing segment dominated the market. Single-glass panels are rapidly becoming common in automotive and architecture and construction, which is boosting the segment's income. Because it is simple to install and is a less expensive choice, single glazing is frequently utilized in construction and building.

Low E-glass Coating Type Insights

The Low E-glass market segmentation, based on Coating Type, includes Solar control low-e coating, Passive low-E coating, and Others. The solar control low-e coating category generated the most income. To block damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays and consume less air conditioning, solar control low-E coatings are frequently used in commercial buildings like airports, exhibition halls, auditoriums, malls, and hospitals. It also provides great thermal insulation, reducing up to 60% of the solar heat that enters the space. Using the Magnetron Sputtering Vapor Deposition (MSVD) method, solar control low-E coating is created. Off-line, at room temperature, and on pre-cut glass, the coating is placed.

Low E-glass End use Insights

The Low E-glass market segmentation, based on End use, includes Building and Construction, Automotive, and Others. The building and construction category generated the most income. It is predicted that the overall product demand would increase as building and construction projects advance quickly. To lessen the quantity of UV and infrared light entering through the-glass, passive and solar control low-E coatings are frequently used in doors and windows.
