Technavio’s analysts categorize the global coated solar control glass market into five major segments by the application. They are:

  • Commercial building
  • Residential building
  • Automotive
  • Solar application
  • Others

The top three segments based on the application for the global coated solar control glass market are discussed below:

Global coated solar control glass market in commercial building

Anti-reflective coatings increase the amount of usable solar energy with high-quality products that are used in solar technologies and are aimed at converting solar energy into electricity. This will drive the global coated solar control glass market in commercial buildings.

According to Hitesh Bhatia, a lead metals and minerals research analyst from Technavio, “The ongoing commercial and industrial development and the increasing disposable income levels will make coated solar control glass more affordable for commercial constructions, which conserve a huge amount of energy and reduce greenhouse emissions.”

Global coated solar control glass market in residential building

The rising income level of the middle-class population due to rapid urbanization, especially in developing countries such as China and India, will propel the demand for residential buildings. The incremental cost of installing coated solar control glass is relatively low as compared with normal glass, which is traditionally used in buildings.

Coated solar control glass is used for reducing the amount of heat entering the building. This type of glass helps in reflecting and absorbing both light and heat. The need for artificial light is minimized which saves electricity, making these glasses more energy-efficient,” says Hitesh.

Global coated solar control glass market in automotive

The rising demand for the comfort of passengers in vehicles and the awareness of climate change have propelled the use of solar glass in the automotive segment. In addition, the new and improved choice of solar control glazing, mainly in the rear windows of luxury cars, and the different colors of infrared windscreens will create a huge demand for solar control glass in the automotive segment.

Coated solar control glass provides electric and hybrid electric vehicles with several benefits such as, allowing decreased amount of sunlight inside the car and reducing the use of air conditioning. This saves energy and reduces the load on the vehicle's air conditioning system by keeping the cabin temperature stable.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Euroglas
  • Guardian Industries
  • Nippon Sheet Glass
  • Saint-Gobain
