is a type of ultra clear glass which is made from silica with very low amounts of iron. Introducing low level of iron removes the greenish-blue tint that can be seen especially on larger and thicker sizes of glass. Low-iron glass is used for solar pants and architectural applications, aquariums, display cases, and other applications where clarity is desired. Low-iron glass typically has a ferric oxide content of about 0.01%. whereas ordinary plate glass has about 10x as much iron content. Globally growing installation of solar plants as an alternative source of energy and residential structures with glass exteriors are expected to be the key growth drivers during the period of study.
Geographically North America dominated
global Low Iron Glass market
, due to higher applications of Low Iron Glass into its large number of solar plants in the region. North America was followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific as second and third largest market for Low Iron Glass. Asia Pacific is projected to have fastest growth, owing to rapidly increasing number of solar plants, which is the key driver of the market in the region in developing nations such as China, and India in this region. Among all the end-use industry residential sector application is expected to be the fastest growing industry.
