By Geography: North America, South America, Europe, APAC, Middle East & Africa
Key Takeaways
  • Asia-Pacific dominates the Self-Cleaning Glass market owing to increasing demand from application such as rising demand of self-cleaning glass in solar panels.
  • Home owners have shifted towards the self-cleaning glass as conventional glass requires more time and energy to keep itself look attractive.
  • Increasing cost of self-cleaning glass and lack of awareness among people will create hurdles for the self-cleaning glass market.

Type of Self-Cleaning Glass- Segment Analysis

The hydrophilic coating segment of self-cleaning glass dominates the market due to growing use in windows, facades and solar panels. Hydrophilic glass has a titanium dioxide film coating and is subjected to a photo catalytic operation. Hydrophilic coatings with hydrogen bonding sites enable the formation of tightly adhered water layers with lubricity in biological systems, and the ability to withstand oil adsorption in anti-graffiti coatings.

Application - Segment Analysis

Based on the application, the Residential construction dominates this segment by growing at a CAGR of 4.53% during forecast period 2020-2025. Residential construction uses self-cleaning glass in roof windows, bay windows, gardens, conservatories, patio doors and glazed facades. Rapid industrialization and urbanization have prompted the development of skyscrapers and buildings at a higher altitude, where demand for self-cleaning glass has increased in this market. The solar panels are also widely increasing under this segment. The efficiency of solar panel decreases up to 20%, due to accumulation of dirt. Thus, in order to overcome this problem hydrophobic glass coating is done.

Geography- Segment Analysis

APAC holds the largest share with 46.54% in 2019 for Self-Cleaning Glass Market, followed by North America and Europe. The growing middle-class populations with high disposable incomes and increasing demand for sustainable construction are major factors contributing to the growth of the self-cleaning glass market in APAC region. China, India and Japan are the largest consumer of self-cleaning glass in the Asia Pacific region. According to International Trade Administration (ITA), the construction industry in China was worth $893.58 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach $1117.42 billion in 2021. The expenditure of Chinese government in construction sector is expected to increase in both residential and non-residential sectors during the forecast period, which, in turn, is expected to drive the demand for self-cleaning glass.

Self-Cleaning Glass Market Drivers

Growth of the construction industry

Self-cleaning glass is primarily used in elevated facades and places that are difficult to reach for manual cleaning. Rise in the construction industry is leading to an increase in the self-cleaning glass market. The demand for self-cleaning glass in buildings is favored over traditional glass, as it reduces the risk of injury when people wobble up ladders with buckets of water. Companies in North America are focusing to invest in the heavy construction projects which acts as a factor for the growth of the Self-cleaning glass market. According to the, U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development together announced 1551,000 building permits, leading towards to growth of construction industry in the year 2020.

Increasing demand of self-cleaning glass in solar panels

Self-cleaning glass improves the life of solar panels, reduce maintenance costs and increases energy efficiency. High efficiency solar cells require high absorption of incident sunlight. So, with the use of self-cleaning glass the efficiency of solar panels can be increased. Self-cleaning glass is an environmentally friendly option as it consumes less water and doesn’t require chemicals to clean the surface.

Self-Cleaning Glass Market Challenges

High cost and lack of awareness

Low effectiveness of self-cleaning glass in areas with low rainfall and less sun exposure is a major factor restraining the market. Self-cleaning glass is also more expensive than conventional, non-coated construction glass by 15-20%, which typically costs $200 to $600 leading to low demand for self-cleaning glass in emerging countries.
