Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Tempered Glass Market 2018-2022

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global tempered glass market: Asahi Glass, Cardinal Glass Industries, Koch Industries, Nippon Sheet Glass, SGG, and Vitro.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is anticipated use of tempered glass in photovoltaics. Tempered glass has a long-term growth opportunity in the PV industry. The PV industry is highly cost-sensitive due to the unprofitable nature of photovoltaics. Tempered glass could bring in changes in the PV industry because of its lightweight benefits. Lightweight PV panels reduce the cost of transportation, thereby reducing the final cost of solar panels.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing demand for smartphones and laptops. The smartphone market is growing at a rapid pace due to technological progress such as high-speed internet browsing, personal data management, and innovative applications. A decrease in the price of smartphones is also promoting the demand. The market has not recorded any negative effects due to the economic recession.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is processing challenges. The tempering process, which includes heating (over 1,000 0F), quenching, and energy loss from the furnace, requires high energy to reach the tempered state. It requires a minimum energy of 4.76 kWh/m² (kilowatt hour per square meter) to manufacture a glass of 10.2 mm thickness. This is expected to result in an escalation of manufacturing costs.
