Introduction & Scope
The global market for coated flat glass has been growing at a significant rate in pace with the flat glass industry for the past five years. The global economic downturn starting in 2008 affected many end-user industries of coated flat glass, including construction, automotive and solar glass industries, which in turn affected the coated flat glass market to a considerable extent. Advancements in glass coating technologies have resulted in the reduction of global energy consumption, mainly from the construction and the automotive sectors, as architects and designers attempt to achieve zero-energy buildings and reduce CO2 emissions. To assess the market, flat glass coatings are broadly divided in this report into four types based on the coating technologies: pyrolytic coatings; magnetron sputtering coatings; sol-gel coatings and other coatings, which include self-cleaning nanotechnology coatings; and other technologies, which account for a very small market share. Pyrolytic glass coatings are mostly used in residential and commercial buildings. In addition, they are used in automotive applications and solar glass applications to some extent. Magnetron sputtering coatings are mostly used in commercial and residential buildings, due to their high performance, and sol-gel coatings are mostly used in solar glass applications.
Glass coatings are used mainly to save energy and thus help reduce carbon emissions; other benefits of glass coatings are solar protection, self-cleaning, corrosion resistance and special transmission/reflection properties. Coating technology is used to produce a variety of products like low-E glass, solar control glass, antireflective glass, hydrophobic, self-cleaning glass and other products.
Coated flat glass is primarily in the construction industry, which accounts for more than 92.8% of the total coated flat glass market globally. To a lesser extent it is used in automotive original equipment manufacturing, solar energy and other applications. The construction building sector includes both residential and commercial buildings, which is further divided into new and refurbished segments for the assessment of the coated
flat glass market in the construction industry. Coated flat glass is used to minimize heat loss or heat gain and reduce light transmission and increase light reflectance, which can significantly affect the overall
heating, lighting and cooling costs of a building. Globally, the demand for coated flat glass is driven by the increasing demand for its application in the construction industry coupled with the global economic recovery. In addition, legislation and regulations focusing on reduction of CO2 emissions and energy saving are contributing toward growth in the coated flat glass market. In the long term, the solar energy market is expected to drive the market for coated flat glass due to increasing demand for renewable energy production.
The global market for coated flat glass is growing, primarily driven by the developed markets, mainly Europe and North America, due to energy-related initiatives and regulations. In addition, the upgrading of the existing buildings in these regions offers a huge opportunity for the coated flat glass market, mainly for low-E glass, which has insulating and solar control properties that increase energy efficiency. However, in the
longer term, developing countries, including China, Brazil, India and others, will create many opportunities for the coated flat glass market. NSG Group, AGC, Saint-Gobain and Guardian are the major global manufacturers of coated flat glass. This report also highlights the vendor landscape and provides profiles of major companies in the market.
STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES
The goal of this report is to provide an up-to-date analysis of recent developments and current trends in the global coated flat glass market. Identifying significant drivers of revenue growth in specific categories for coated flat glass is an additional aim. The objective of this kind of systematic research is to quantify the projected impact of both internal and external forces that are affecting the global coated flat glass industry
today and that will affect the industry for the next several years.
REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
With the recovery of the global economy, construction activities have geared up globally, including in North America and Japan, which has increased the demand for coated flat glass. In addition, vehicle sales have increased globally after the stalled demand caused by the recession; this is resulting in increased demand for the automotive coated flat glass market. Increasing raw material prices and stricter environmental regulations on CO2 emission levels in the production of coated flat glass have forced companies to develop coatings with advanced technologies to comply with the latest and future environmental regulations. Pressure is increasing in the Asia-Pacific region and other developing regions for environmental-friendly coated flat glass to reduce energy consumption and reduce CO2 emissions worldwide. This creates
a huge market growth opportunity for the coated flat glass players in both the emerging and developed markets.
