Global Bulletproof Glass Market 2016-2020

About Bulletproof Glass

Bulletproof glass, also known as ballistic or bullet-resistant glass, is a composite of thermoplastic and glass-laminated layers. The combined substance is used to resist or absorb the impact of bullets or similar ammunition. Bulletproof glass is prepared by inserting a layer of thermoplastic in between the laminated glasses, and different layers are stacked together. Depending on the purpose of the application, the thickness of the bulletproof glass range from 0.25 to 3.5 inches.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global bulletproof glass market to grow at a CAGR of 9.48% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Bulletproof Glass Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global bulletproof glass market: Asahi Glass, China Specialty Glass, Guardian Industries, NSG, and Saint-Gobain.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Apogee Enterprise, Binswanger Glass, China Glass Holdings, Guangzhou Sky Tiger Tempered Glass, Jiangsu Yongxiang Glass Technology, Qufu Shenglu Bulletproof Glass Engineering, PPG Industries, SCHOTT, Şişecam, and Taiwan Glass.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The global bulletproof glass market is witnessing the increased adoption of polycarbonates compared with acrylic in the manufacturing of bulletproof glass. Acrylic has a thickness of over one inch and is 50% lighter than glass. Even though it is lighter than glass, it is more brittle and can easily shatter upon the impact from a bullet. Acrylic is also more likely to get scratched and is almost as expensive as polycarbonate.”

According to the report, the global bulletproof glass market is witnessing the increased use of bulletproof glass in the luxury automobiles worldwide. Automobile giants like BMW, Audi, and General Motors have started producing armored vehicles to meet the customized requests from the high-profile customers. This is creating the demand for bulletproof glass, which will increase the revenue of the global bulletproof glass market during the forecast period.

Further, the report states that bulletproof glass can be affected by environmental factors such as exposure to ultraviolet radiation, extreme temperature, or certain solvents. For instance, below-zero temperatures can sometimes cause the polycarbonate used in bulletproof glass to break off. The polycarbonate can also be affected by ultraviolet radiation as well.
