Electrochromic Glass Market Drivers

Increasing Use of Smart Glass in Automotive Industry

The automotive industry is rising at a rapid rate. The sales of light and heavy-duty vehicles in recent years have been powered by increased market trust in the economy and higher investment. Several variables affect the market for automotive smart glass. With an increase in the overall car population and the number of miles traveled the replacement volume of glasses increases. The demand for automotive glass repair and replacement can also be boosted by severe weather and road conditions. However, after a vehicle trade-in or sale or vehicle inspection, customers prefer to delay repairing minor damage to a windscreen. Production of new cars, turnover of used vehicles and vehicle inspection regulations therefore have a positive effect on demand for smart glass for automotive applications in various countries. Approximately 81.6 million cars were produced. The total number of vehicles produced in 2022 was further broken down by nation by the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA). First place went to China with 26.1 M cars, then the US and Japan. Three African nations—South Africa, Morocco, and Egypt—made the list of the top 31 automakers.

Growing Applications of Smart Glass in the Solar Energy Plants

Solar power generation plants are one of the emerging users of smart glass. In solar panels, smart glass is used to consume the full volume of light to produce electricity. Energy-related prices are constantly growing, with demand for alternative power sources increasing over the last decade. One of the alternatives to traditional energy sources is solar energy. The efficiency of thermochromic and photochromic smart glass depends directly or indirectly on the light of the sun. Using such auto-dimmable smart glass helps to significantly reduce the consumption of energy, especially for heating and cooling systems. According to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, ongoing solar projects such as Development of Solar Parks and Ultra Mega Solar Power projects will drive the demand for smart glass in the solar industry. Thus, rising initiatives by governments and the growth of the solar industry is projected to offer many opportunities for the growth of the Electrochromic Glass Market.

Electrochromic Glass Market Challenges

Lack of knowledge of the Long-term Advantages of Smart Glass

There is limited consumer understanding of the distinctive advantages of smart glass since the concept has been commercialized across various verticals with just a few applications. In application fields such as automotive and architecture, the present stage of promotion and acceptance of smart glass will boom the growth of the market, with industry players and architects knowing the advantages of smart glass technology. From the past two years, this technology can gain momentum at a moderate pace due to lack of awareness. There is, however, a more need to inform end-users about its use as an energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly and future-oriented technology. Hence, due to the lack of awareness of the long-term benefits of smart glasses the growth of the market can be hindered.
