Glass coating techniques and applications
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. Nano coatings are non-stick coatings used to reduce the contact of dirt particles with the glass. Nano coatings have good permanence and longevity, with good UV stability. They also have excellent abrasion resistance with the substrate.
The major share of the global glass coating market is is within the construction and automotive industries. Growing demand in the automotive industry is the main reason for the rise in demand for glass coatings, but construction growth in the developed countries and developing countries is also anticipated to drive the market. However, increasing raw material prices may restrain the market.
It can also be categorised based on the types of coating:
- Pyrolytic coatings
- Magnetron sputtering coatings
- Sol-gel coatings
- Other coatings
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.
