Functional Glass Coatings Market: Highlights
As per Stratview Research, the global functional glass coatings market is forecasted to grow at an impressive rate over the next five years to reach an estimated value of US$ 2,052.1 million in 2023. Increasing applications of glass in various sectors including architecture, automotive, food & beverage, consumer goods, and pharmaceuticals, along with a surge in the performance requirement of glass substrates to meet the requisite properties of different applications have given rise to the demand for functional glass coatings. Functional coating enhances or modifies the properties of a glass substrate and offers several crucial properties, such as adhesion, wettability, chemical resistance, wear resistance, scratch resistance, gloss, hydrophobicity, self-cleaning, anti-static, anti-reflective, and anti-bacterial properties, to the glass substrate.
There are a host of factors burgeoning the demand for functional glass coatings in a diverse range of applications. Among all, the biggest driving factor is an organic growth of the architectural industry. Increasing building and infrastructure activities and surge in global investments for construction of taller buildings with increasing usage of glass for aesthetic appearance are the major factors driving the growth of functional glass coatings in the architectural industry. Rising demand for energy savings and green building concept has created ample opportunities for functional glass coating manufacturers to develop and innovate coatings to produce highly efficient architectural glass for the industry. Another factor, which is acting as a catalyst to the growth of functional glass coatings, is consistently increasing automobile production.
In addition to that, rapidly changing market dynamics, such as increasing demand for energy-efficient buildings owing to several environmental initiatives by regulatory authorities, such as, LEED, RoHS, and REACH standards; growing penetration of glass in a wide array of applications; increasing functionality of coatings in a glass; and advancements in functional glass coating materials and manufacturing processes are further substantiating the growth opportunities for new entrants as well as for the existing players in the global functional glass coatings market.
Based on the end-user type, architectural glass is expected to remain the growth engine of the market during the forecast period of 2018 to 2023. Increasing building and infrastructure activities in developing economies coupled with increasing glass content in building and infrastructure are the key factors propelling the demand for functional coatings in the segment. Automotive glass, another segment with a considerable share, is likely to witness healthy growth rate over the next five years.
In terms of application technique type, pyrolytic coating is expected to maintain its dominance in the market during the forecast period, driven by its low-cost advantage and consistent performance. Pyrolytic coating and sputtered coatings are the two main technologies for applying Low-E coatings on a glass substrate.
Based on the coating type, specialty coatings segment dominated the market in 2017. Specialty coatings include various coating solutions, such as self-cleaning, anti-reflective, anti-microbial, anti-UV, anti-smudge, anti-fog, and transparent conductive coatings.
Research findings suggest that Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest functional glass coatings market during the forecast period. China, India, and Southeast Asia are the growth engines of the Asia-Pacific’s functional glass coatings market in the foreseeable future. North America and Europe are also likely to exhibit good growth during the same period, driven by high production of vehicles and growing demand for the energy-efficient buildings.
Major functional glass coating manufacturers are Asahi Glass Co., Ltd (AGC), Apogee Enterprises, Inc., Arkema, Ferro Corporation, Guardian Industries, ICD High Performance Coatings, Johnson Matthey, Nippon Sheet Glass Co., Ltd (NSG), Saint-Gobain S.A., and Vitro, S.A.B. de C.V. Development of high-performance functional glass coatings, expansion in untapped and growing markets, and execution of mergers & acquisitions are the key strategies adopted by the major players to gain a competitive edge in the market.
