Smart glazing has been adopted in industries, such as, building and construction, and automotive. Research and development in the field of smart glazing is expected to reduce the costs involved in manufacturing and use of carbon fibers across industries. The successful research activities and technologies are expected to be scaled up to commercial scale between 2016'2018.
Growth in the end use industries and higher prospects of adoption and commercialization are going to be the major drivers for adoption of smart glazing.
In technology adoption and research activities, North America is leading, followed by Europe, and countries such as Japan, Australia, and China in the Asia-Pacific region.
The maximum number of patents have been filed by smart glazing manufacturers in USA in end-use industries, such as, building and construction, and automotive.
North America is the leading region in funding technology and product developments, closely followed by Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. Both governmental and private funding are seen in the industry.
Improvement in the processing techniques, and consequent reduction in costs involved in manufacturing of smart glazing, is going to significantly drive adoption across industries, especially the automotive and construction industries.
With rising concerns about global warming and environment protection, technologies in alternate energy sector is expected to be adopted in wider scale in emerging economies and in developing countries. This growth will lead to wider adoption of smart glazing technologies.
Smart glazing is touted to be the next big thing in the construction industry as it can offer a sustainable solution for issues related to effective management of temperature, heat, and other environmental factors.
Stakeholders, including research institutes and manufacturers, are expanding the future scope of smart glazing. The interaction between these stakeholders has been conducive for the overall growth of the industry and has resulted in strategic and research-oriented partnerships that aim at bridging the gap between research and commercialization.
