Smart Glass Market Overview:

Smart glass is a technologically advanced product that can turn from clear to opaque in no time. This technology can help enhance the indoor experience by providing an outside view and preserving environmental sustainability. Smart glasses are used in restaurants, hospitals, and residential buildings as well as in commercial buildings which are getting renovated to make them more energy-efficient.

Smart Glass Market size can reach USD 15.43 Billion by 2030, according to Market Research Future (MRFR). It can exhibit a 13.84% CAGR over the forecast period (2018-2030).

Covid- 19 Analysis:

The Global pandemic has severely hit the production of smart glasses as the virus spread globally. There is a sudden decline in construction projections and hurdles are detected in supply chains which can affect market sales. However, there is always an opportunity for smart glasses creativity, and continued business activity needs to run on-site production. Certain investments are made in an inspection execution platform and digital instruction which enables the users of smart glass to ensure production. If the production runs smoothly, Proceedix is an instance of such a platform. It provides workers with instructions that can be reviewed by direct supervision remotely.


  • Drivers:
