Advanced flat glass products’ market in U.S is estimated to augment by 2012 added a new report that provides information on paints and coatings industry forecast in U.S

Market penetration and the increasing acceptance of a variety of advanced flat glass products are forecast to be reflected by the growing demand for advanced flat glass, 5% annually. The demand is expected to reach $7.2 billion by 2012 in U.S. The advanced flat glass products include laminated glass used in glide vehicle sidelites and sunroofs, and antiburglary or ballistic glass; smart glass for solar control applications; self- leaning glass; and heads-up display glass.

Smart glass, which has been held out the most promise among the advanced flat glass products, can automatically change its light transmission qualities as a means of saving energy and reducing heat gain in structures. While the expected impact of these products has been slow to develop, it appears that commercialization is finally beginning to materialize.

Laminated glass products, used in a variety of applications, including safety glass, ballistic glass, anti-burglary glass and hurricane glass, are increasing their share of total flat glass demand. These products possess much greater strength than competing tempered or annealed glass, offering performance advantages to a variety of flat glass users, including builders and manufacturers of motor vehicles, aircraft and other transportation equipment.

Although motor vehicles will remain the largest single market for advanced glass products, more rapid gains will be posted in architectural markets. This will derive from a recovery in new home building activity, albeit from a weak 2007 base, coupled with the wide variety of new advanced flat glass products which are now penetrating the market. On the motor vehicle side, growth will be driven by the increasing inclusion of laminated sidelights, electro-chromic mirrors and heads-up display screens, offset in part by slow growth in vehicle production and competition from plastic film products, particularly in solar control applications. has included a new report titled “ Advanced Flat Glass forecasts for 2012 & 2017” which presents historical demand data and forecasts for the years 2012 and 2017 for security and safety glass (tempered and laminated vehicle safety glass, fire-rated glass, ballistic glass, burglary resistant glass and hurricane glass); solar control glass ( lowemissivity glass, reflective glass and smart glass ); and other advanced flat glass products (heads-up display windscreens, ultra clear and colorless glass, self-cleaning glass and miscellaneous products). In addition, the study considers market environment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles leading competitors.
