The global market for smart glass-based products increased from $883.1 million in 2009 to $1.2 billion in 2010, and was valued at nearly $1.6 billion in 2011. The market is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 21.6% from 2011 to 2016, reaching global revenues of nearly $4.2 billion in 2016.

The transportation and aerospace sector accounted for 91.4% of the market in 2011 with revenues of $1.4 billion. This segment is estimated to expand at a CAGR of 22.1% during the next five years and reach a value of $3.9 billion by 2016.

The construction sector accounted for 7.2% of the market in 2011 with revenues of $113.3 million. This segment is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 14.6% during the next five years and reach $224.3 million by 2016.

Introduction

The origins of smart glass can be traced back to the year 1704, when the first electrochromic material was discovered, but interest in smart glass technology only started to gain significant momentum in the early 1970s, when the number of research activities resulting in patent applications and issued patents increased rapidly. This led to the development of improved fabrication processes, advanced properties and an increased number of applications spanning many industrial sectors.

BCC published its first report on smart glass in February 2009. Since then, the market for these materials and related products has continued to expand. New technological developments and industry changes have also taken place.

The primary goal of this report is to provide new insights into current smart glass technology, as well as to outline technological trends and offer an updated market analysis for these materials.

Specifically, the major objectives of this study are:

- To provide an update review of smart glasses, including a description of their types and fabrication technologies.
- To highlight new technological developments in smart glass manufacturing while outlining technical issues.
- To review current fields of application for smart glass and investigate emerging applications.
- To estimate current global markets for smart glass based on type, application and region, with growth forecasts through 2016 for each market segment.
- To identify important technology and market trends within each market segment.
- To offer an updated review of current producers of smart glass.
- To determine trends in U.S. patents issued during the period from 2009 to 2011.
