This market research study identifies ASAHI GLASS, Gentex, PPG Industries, Saint-Gobain, and View as the leading players in the global electrochromic glass market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by application (building and construction, automotive and transportation, and others) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global electrochromic glass market

As per the Technavio’s market research report, the global electrochromic glass market will grow at a moderate rate and post a CAGR of more than 12% during the forecast period. The increasing adoption of green or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) buildings will drive the growth prospects for the global electrochromic glass market during the predicted period. The growing concern of government agencies and municipalities towards environmental issues have encouraged the construction of green buildings to reduce the negative impacts on climate and natural resources by increasing the installation of electrochromic privacy glass.
