Glass coating can help save energy and reduce carbon emissions. Glass coating provides long lasting durable protection, scratch resistance, water, dirt, ice and snow repellence. They also provide solar protection, corrosion resistance and self-cleaning properties.
Glass coatings take two main forms; nano coating and liquid glass coating. Nanocoatings are non-stick coatings used to reduce the contact of dirt particles with the glass. Nanocoatings have good permanence and longevity, with good UV stability. They also have excellent abrasion resistance with the substrate.
Two of the major usages of the global nano glass coating markets are within the construction and automotive industries. Growing demand in the construction industry is the main reason for the rise in demand for these glass coatings, basically, construction growth in the developed countries and also in developing countries is also anticipated to drive the market exponentially, even though increasing raw material prices have somewhat restrained the market.
The market can be categorised on the basis of coating technology:
Nano glass coating
Liquid glass coating
It can also be categorised based on the types of coating:
Magnetron sputtering coatings
The market can be categorised on the basis on end-use applications as:
Building and construction
The global glass coating market is segmented into seven key regions on the basis of geography; North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Japan. Asia Pacific is the largest market in terms of value share.
