The global flat glass coatings market size is expected to reach USD 4.48 billion by 2025 and is anticipated to register a 20.2% CAGR over the forecast period.
Massive demand for mirror and glass facades from commercial and residential sectors coupled with adoption from automotive and transportation sector is likely to drive demand over the forecast period.
Rising adoption of solar installations along with demand for environment-friendly renewable sources of energy are anticipated to drive demand for solar panels, augmenting flat glass coatings market. Moreover, rising awareness for energy conservation, self-sufficiency, and favorable government regulations are anticipated to further drive demand from architectural applications over the years to come. Countries such as Italy, U.K., U.S., Japan, China, India, and Germany featuring unilateral legislations to the Kyoto Protocol, aimed at reducing the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is also anticipated to promote market growth.
Water-based technology is anticipated to maintain its dominance in terms of market share over the forecast period. Wide usage owing to its high strength and premium quality is anticipated to be the primary driving factor for this segment. Overall performance of coating primarily depends on utilization of raw materials such as pigments, resins, and additives. However, nano-based technology is expected to ascend at a promising rate in near future on account of growing preferences for advanced materials in the manufacturing industry.
Growing need for utilization of sustainable energy, reduction in carbon footprint, and favorable government policies targeted at reducing consumption of fossil fuel are likely to propel growth of the solar power sector. Solar module industry is anticipated to register major demand for flat glass coatings in solar projects.
