Over time, there has been a steady trend in the demand of high-rise buildings and the interior insulation packages. Insulating glass, which is often referred to as "double glazing" or "triple glazing", mainly consists of two panes (of glass with a spacer between them and a gas filled space and tempered glass) that are encased in metal or plastic frames. The most common type of insulating window is Low-E glass, which perfectly balances all three properties: Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC), Visible Light Transmittance (VLT), and Thermal Resistance (R-Value).
Demand for insulating glass window has increased over time due to an increase of high-rise buildings and the interior insulation packages. This is due to the benefits of insulating glass windows such as reduced heat loss, increased comfort and thermal insulation. As a result, the demand for this type of specialized window has increased and is projected to continue growing during the forecast period.
Key Factors Compelling Consumers to opt for Insulating Glass Windows
Rapid Urbanization in Developing Countries to Offer Opportunity for Insulating glass Window Market
Rapid urbanization and major demographic shifts will drive growth of insulating glass window market in developing countries. For instance, housing sector in India is anticipated to see strong growth, with the Indian economy projected to grow at 8.2% CAGR over the next five years. Over the same period of time, it is estimated that household spending on construction will reach US$69 billion per annum.
Currently, most homes in developing countries Like China, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, and Colombia are built using traditional methods with walls consisting of bricks and mortar. However, this method has many disadvantages such as poor insulation properties and high vulnerability to external elements like earthquakes or cyclones. On the other hand, insulating glass windows provide an alternative solution for building homes that enhance comfort levels while preventing heat loss during winters and excessive heat gain during summer. They also improve the aesthetics of a home and can be customized according to the specific requirements of a customer.
Insulating glass window Market in India is currently small but is expected to grow at a fast pace in the coming years. Players in this market are focusing on expanding their product offerings and improving their distribution channels in order to cater to the growing demand.
Commercial Sector to Remain the Largest Consumer of Insulating Glass Windows
The global insulating glass window market is expected to witness healthy growth due to factors such as increasing population, rise in commercial sector, and growing demand for energy efficient products. The industry is witnessing technological developments which include smart glass technology, low emissivity (Low-E) glass, and photochromic glass. As a result, the commercial sector is anticipated to be the largest end user of insulating glass windows, followed by the residential sector. The demand for insulating glass windows in the commercial sector is mainly driven by the need for energy efficiency and security. In the commercial sector, growth in office spaces and hotels is expected to fuel the demand for insulating glass windows.
The residential sector is also expected to witness healthy growth in the global insulating glass window market due to factors such as growing awareness about energy efficiency and rise in disposable income. In the residential sector, North America is expected to lead the market due to increasing demand from new construction and renovation projects. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market for insulating glass windows due to increasing demands from the residential and commercial sectors.
High Demand for Double-Glazed Insulating Glass Windows
As global temperatures continue to rise, the demand for energy-efficient building materials and technologies has never been higher. In particular, double-glazed insulating glass window market is growing rapidly as the product is becoming increasingly popular as it provide superior thermal insulation and noise reduction. Due to their many benefits, double-glazed insulating glass windows are being used in a variety of applications, from homes and offices to hospitals and schools. They are also ideal for new construction or renovation projects, as they can be installed in both retrofit and replacement situations. One of the main reasons for the growing demand for double-glazed insulating glass windows is that they can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In fact, by replacing a single pane window with a double-glazed window, a building can save up to 30% on its energy consumption.
