DUBLIN, Nov. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Smart Glass Market by Technology , Application, & by Geography - Global Forecast to 2014 - 2020" report to their offering.
Smart glass is also known by switchable glass, dimmable glass or dynamic glass. It is a kind of glass which changes its light transmission properties according to the provided stimulus. Based on whether, they require an electrical stimulus to respond or the level of control it offers to users; it can be categorized into Active or Passive. Electrochromic, SPD, and Liquid crystal are some of the active smart glass technologies which respond to voltage as a stimulus and adjust the light transmission property dynamically. On the other hand, Passive smart glass technologies such as Thermochromic and Photochromic react naturally to heat or light.
Smart glass technologies covered in this report are: Thermochromic, Suspended particle device (SPD), Electrochromic (EC), Liquid crystal (LC)/ Polymer dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC), Photochromic and so on. Technical assessments of the latest, emerging smart glass technologies- micro blinds and nanocrystals are also provided. Out of all the traditional smart glass technologies, Electrochromic is being recognized as one of the promising ones, owing to the highest dynamic control, as it allows light and heat through the glass. With its unique properties such as durability and fastest switching times, Electrochromic smart glass is expected to revolutionize the architectural application segment occupying the major chunk of market revenue by 2020.
The transportation sector is another growth market for this product. In the automotive segment, smart glass is becoming a popular choice for rear view mirrors and sunroofs because of the value it brings in the form of controlling the glare, tinting and so on. Automobile players such as Daimler AG (Germany) and BMW AG (Germany) have used smart glass for windows and sun-roofs, in their premium cars such as Mercedes-Benz SLK and BMW Active Tourer respectively. Additionally, aviation players such as Boeing Company (U.S.) used smart windows in its 787 Dreamliner aircraft. This report consists of a case study on this application.
This report also profiles key industry player of smart glass market. The detailed analysis about their strategies and developments is included in the report. These key industry players are - Asahi Glass Company (Japan), Citala Pvt.
