Factors affecting the building glass market during the forecast period:

  • The glass increases the amount of natural light in the building; therefore, it is considered to be the most cost-effective option in the renovation of the conventional building made up of brick, wood and polycarbonate.
  • Advances in building glasses, such as solar control glass, self-cleaning glass, insulated pane glass, have increased the demand for building glass in commercial applications.
  • With the introduction of smart city initiatives in emerging economies, rising spending in the construction sector is further driving the growth of the building materials market, in turn delivering growth to the building glass market in the construction of commercial buildings as part of smart city initiatives.
  • Poor access to raw materials and volatility in raw material prices are some factors restraining the growth of the structural glass market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Building Glass Market:

The COVID-19 outbreak has disrupted the global economy, leading to a financial impact on companies in various sectors, namely building and construction, chemicals, automotive and others. The construction glass market will experience a considerable drop after the COVID-19 outbreak due to the postponement or cancellation of large-scale construction projects. Lockdowns in developed and emerging economies have halted the construction of high-rise buildings, leading to lower demand for building materials, including building glass. Additionally, a huge rift in the supply chains, closure of manufacturing units amid the crisis has led to the decline in the market value of the building glass market in 2020.
