Global Low E Glass Market: Snapshot

Today various industrial application make use of low emissivity glass or usually known as a low E glass. This glass restricts the amount of UV and infrared light that can enter penetrating through glass walls without hampering sunlight to enter the premises. These glasses usually have a transparent and microscopically ultrathin coating that restrict heat to enter the room. The low E glass is an effective alternative for the air conditioners as they limits the power consumption and cost associated with them. These factors cumulatively influence the growth of global low E glass market in the projected time frame. Moreover, the fact that it can save huge money spent by the businesses in installing and maintaining HVACs, also propels the growth of global low E glass market.

Industries that Use the Low E Glass Maximum

  • Manufacturing: It is evident that the manufacturing businesses are one of the hottest places to work at. There are various machines that are constantly running and producing heat. Above this the sunlight containing the UV and infrared rays can also elevate the bar of temperature. It is because of this reason that manufacturing businesses are using low E glass these days. This is one of the major factors boosting the growth of global low E glass market.
  • Oil and Gas: Due to consistent drilling and churning of other generators in the oil refineries the temperature rises rapidly. Using low E glass can reduce the temperature. Hence oil and gas is also using low E glass extensively which is further boosting the growth of global low E glass market.

Low E or low emissivity glass is commonly used in various industrial applications to limit the amount of ultraviolet and infrared light that can enter through glass in a premise, without compromising on the sunlight. Low E glass windows usually have a transparent and microscopically thin coating, which reflects heat. Use of low E glass coatings can help the end users to maintain temperature inside a building and also supports energy efficient construction by limiting the electricity consumption of air conditioning units.

Low E Glass Market – Notable Developments

  • Vitro Architectural Glass – a leading player in the low E glass market – announced, in May 2018, that announced that it will preview a new low E glass product – Solarban® at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) conference on architecture in New York. The company further declared that it is focusing on previewing the high-performance solar control low-e glass coatings along with seven units of large insulating glass (IGUs) to highlight its unique range of low E glass and gain a competitive edge in the low E glass market in coming future.
  • Compagnie de Saint-Gobain S.A. – a French multinational company in the low E glass market – announced in January 2019 that it will be divesting regional glass business Glassolutions Norway and Sweden, as a part of company’s strategy to sell glass businesses representing sales of €3 billion or more by 2019. Meanwhile, the company also announced that it will be strengthening its position in emerging countries to capitalize on excellent opportunities by expanding its production in developing countries, including India and Colombia.
  • Schott AG – a German manufacturing and technology group in the low E glass market – announced that it will be investing in a Swiss artificial intelligence (AI) group – NNAISENSE – to incorporate advanced levels of control and efficiency during complex processes of glass production. The company declared that the investment is mainly aimed at the company’s broader strategy of expanding its global presence through strategic acquisitions.
