Architectural glass is a building material used as a transparent glazing material in windows, home & office doors, external walls, among others. The rising urbanization is contributing to the growing construction activities across the globe. Increasing population growth, migration of people from rural to urban areas for career opportunities, and strategic business investments are boosting the construction sector, driving the architectural glass market growth.
In 2020, various industries had to slow down their operations due to disruptions in value and supply chains caused by the shutdown of national and international boundaries. The COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected economies and industries due to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. Disruptions in the supply chains of key raw materials and irregularities in manufacturing processes due to restrictions imposed by government authorities had a direct impact on the chemicals & materials industry, which hampered construction material production and demand. These factors negatively impacted the architectural glass market during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, in 2021, the marketplace witnessed a positive recovery as the governments announced the relaxation of previously imposed restrictions. The manufacturers were permitted to work at full capacity, leveraging their profitability. This factor is expected to drive the market in the coming years. For instance, according to Eurostat, after an unprecedented decline in March and April (-25.9%), construction activity in the European Union increased by 20.4% in May 2020. It recovered some of the losses of the crisis. Since then, construction activity has increased in most months but not very dynamically. In January 2022, the production level was only 1.9% higher than in February 2020.

With growing economy, increasing living standards and modernization among the population globally, the use of decorative glass, such as printed and colored glass, in designing the interiors of residential and commercial buildings is increasing. The demand for screen printing glass in the construction industry is growing as it offers various aesthetic advantages over traditional building materials. Screen printing glass expands its uses in industrial, commercial, and architectural applications such as display windows, building exterior landscaping, architectural space partitions, mosaic glass, furniture decoration, and other 3D objects. Such advancement in glass manufacturing varieties is further expected to boost the demand for architectural glass.
Based on type, the architectural glass market is segmented into tempered glass, annealed glass, laminated glass, and others. The laminated segment is projected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Laminated glass is a good alternative to traditional glass, as it offers a rigid, robust, and durable structure and provides a solid, transparent layer. It is used in buildings that are at high risk of hurricanes or other natural disasters, in windows of residential and commercial buildings at higher risk of break-ins, in display cabinets for valuables such as jewelry, aquariums or animal enclosures, glass floors, glass stairs, skylights, and glass roofs. Additionally, owing to the rising demand for security, sound reduction, shatter resistance, and protection from adverse weather conditions, the market is expected to witness steady growth during the forecast period.

Based on application, the architectural glass market is segmented into hurricane impact, balustrades/glass railings, overhead and canopies, security/bullet resistant glass, acoustics, decorative/colored glass, structural facades, and others. The structural facades segment held the largest share of the market in 2021. In structural facades, architectural glass is widely used in glass wall cladding and glass wall partitions. Wall cladding is used to provide a degree of thermal insulation and weather resistance, and to improve the appearance of buildings. Glass cladding is a widely used technique in architecture where glass panes are used on the exterior surface of buildings. Toughened glass is the most common type of glass used in wall partitioning. This glass is toughened by heating it, which makes the glass four to five times stronger and more durable than annealed glass. These factors are expected to drive the segment.
The key players operating in the architectural glass market include AGC Inc, Compagnie de Saint-Gobain SA, Guardian Industries Holdings LLC, Nippon Sheet Glass Co Ltd, Qingdao Morn Building Materials Co Ltd, Asahi India Glass Ltd, Turkiye Sise ve Cam Fabrikalari AS, Schott AG, Jinjing (Group) Co Ltd, and Vitro SAB de CV.
