Smart Glass Market Growth & Trends

The global smart glass market size is expected to reach USD 12.76 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.9% from 2023 to 2030. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing product demand across the automotive and architectural industries. The emerging trend of deploying innovative technologies in new buildings has instigated the adoption of smart glass products in the architectural sector. The market's expansion is attributed to the growing investment in infrastructure development, high demand for luxury vehicles equipped with smart glass, and government initiatives to construct eco-friendly and energy-efficient buildings. An increase in the glazing area in commercial and residential buildings is expected to affect demand positively over the next few years.

An increasing number of architects suggest using this glass to construct new buildings, which is estimated to lead to high demand in architectural applications. The high adoption of electrochromic glass in automotive and building construction applications has been the primary contributor to the segment’s dominance. There is a rapid growth in the adoption of electrochromic windows that offer control over energy consumption, glare, and comfort in the North America and Europe region. According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), windows made using electrochromic technology are capable of reducing the electricity consumption for cooling by up to 49% and decreasing the costs of lighting by up to 51%. Such benefits of electrochromic technology are opportunistic for the growth of the segment.

Smart glass technology is largely adopted in commercial office buildings and corporate headquarters as it helps save costs considerably while maximizing workplace productivity. Technologies, such as self-cleaning glass, low-emissivity glass, and solar control glass, have become prominent offerings for the construction sector. The increasing number of infrastructure projects, as well as restoration & renovation activities in residential & commercial spaces, is contributing to the growth of the architectural segment. For instance, Evora Public Central Hospital (around USD 228.8 million), Edge East Side Tower (around USD 448.7 million), Baltic Offshore Pipeline (around USD 2,720.1 million), and Flamanville 3 (around USD 14,245.6 million) among others are some of the prominent construction projects in Europe that were planned for the completion in the year 2023.

Companies are adopting strategic initiatives, such as investments in research & development (R&D), mergers & acquisitions, collaborations, partnerships, and new product developments, to gain a competitive edge. For instance, in March 2023, Kognition, an AI safety & security startup, partnered with View Inc., the provider of smart glass, to integrate View’s Smart Building Cloud, an integrated software stack for smart buildings, with Kognition’s SPS smart building software. This partnership is aimed at providing a comprehensive approach to building safety & security and helping the customers deploy & manage a cyber-physical security system powered by AI.
