In 2020, Asia Pacific held the largest revenue share of the global laminated glass market. The growing number of residential and commercial construction projects is the major factor contributing to the growth of the market in this region. The consequent growth of the construction industry is fueling the demand for laminated glass in the region. Moreover, Asia Pacific has a dominant automotive industry, and it records the highest production of vehicles among all regions. The laminated glass is extensively used in windshield covers in the automotive industry, which creates favorable business opportunities for laminated glass manufacturers.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Laminated Glass Market

The COVID-19 pandemic had affected economies and industries in various countries due to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. The chemical and materials industry was one of the major industries that suffered serious consequences such as disruptions in supply chains and shutdowns of production plants. The laminated glass market shortfall is expected to last until 2021, causing disruptions in various businesses. Further, many factories and manufacturers had to suspend or slow down glass production, making it exceedingly difficult to satisfy current demands. The building industry has been the major victim of the glass scarcity. During the shutdown, residents invested both time and money in rebuilding or remodeling their homes, propelling the demand for materials. Moreover, due to difficulties in procuring glass, the laminated glass business has suffered a significant setback. Thus, a low demand from end-user industries during the COVID-19 pandemic has led to slowdown in the growth of the laminated glass market.
