Switchable or Smart Glass Market: 2020 Forecast by Technology, Application and Geography

ReportsnReports.com offers Smart Glass Market by Technology (Electrochromics, SPD, Liquid Crystal, Microblinds, Thermographic and Photochromics), Application (Architectural, Transportation, Solar power generation, Electronics & others), & by Geography - Global Forecast to 2014 - 2020 in its store.

DALLAS, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Smart glass is also known by switchable glass, dimmable glass or dynamic glass. It is a kind of glass which changes its light transmission properties according to the provided stimulus. Based on whether, they require an electrical stimulus to respond or the level of control it offers to users; it can be categorized into Active or Passive. Electrochromic, SPD, and Liquid crystal are some of the active smart glass technologies which respond to voltage as a stimulus and adjust the light transmission property dynamically. On the other hand, Passive smart glass technologies such as Thermochromic and Photochromic react naturally to heat or light.

The "Smart Glass Market by Technology (Electrochromics, SPD, Liquid Crystal, Microblinds, Thermographic and Photochromics), Application (Architectural, Transportation, Solar power generation, Electronics & others), & by Geography - Global Forecast to 2014 – 2020" report says the value of Smart glass market was worth $1581.4 Million in 2013, and is expected to reach $5814  Million by 2020, at an estimated CAGR of 20% from 2014 to 2020.

Smart glass technologies covered in this report are: Thermochromic, Suspended particle device (SPD), Electrochromic (EC), Liquid crystal (LC) / Polymer dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC), Photochromic and so on. Also technical assessment of the latest, emerging smart glass technologies- micro blinds and nanocrystals are also provided. Out of all the traditional smart glass technologies, Electrochromic is being recognized as one of the promising ones, owing to the highest dynamic control, as it allows light and heat through the glass. With its unique properties such as durability and fastest switching times, Electrochromic smart glass is expected to revolutionize the architectural application segment occupying the major chunk of market revenue by 2020.

The transportation sector is another growth market for this product. In the automotive segment, smart glass is becoming a popular choice for rear view mirrors and sunroofs because of the value it brings in the form of controlling the glare, tinting and so on. Reputed automobile players such as Daimler AG (Germany) and BMW AG (Germany) have used smart glass for windows and sun-roofs, in their premium cars such as Mercedes-Benz SLK and BMW Active Tourer respectively. Also aviation players such as Boeing Company (U.S.) used smart windows in its 787 Dreamliner aircraft. This report consists of a case study on this application.
