The global anti-reflective (AR) glass market is expected to display huge growth in forthcoming period. Usually, there is small percentage of every glass that is reflective, but an anti-reflective glass has no reflectance as viewed from any angle, thus achieving 100% transparency. The anti-reflective coatings bring down reflectance to the bare minimum, thus producing crystal clear glass finish.
Low iron glass which when dipped in scores of metallic oxides solutions, it gives rise to anti-reflective glass. The metallic oxides solutions add a coating to all sides of the glass making it almost virtually free of all visual reflectance, if any. The AR glasses have its applications lined up in projector lenses, display windows and showrooms, VIP enclosures and Television and recording studios and lobbies.
The market drivers for anti-reflective glass (AR) market are its expansive use in various end-user sources including electronic instruments, architectural high-rise windows and telecommunications, automotive and solar panels. The versatility of the AR glass is its ability in blocking 60-70% of UV rays and boosts growth of AR glass in the industrial market.
A proliferation of electronic gadgets and innovations has greatly increased demand for AR glass in countries such as India and China. The proliferation of landscapes with high rise buildings and skyscrapers in growing economies has come to fuel market growth of anti-reflective (AR) glass market. The automotive industry has significantly boosted anti-reflective glass industry with application of AR glass in passenger and luxury sedans.
Restraints to growth of anti-reflective glass industry are the exorbitant cost in production of AR glasses resulting in low market growth. Segmentation of anti-reflective glass market by type includes one-sided and two-sided. By application, segmentation of anti-reflective glass market includes LCD Displays, Architectural Windows, front panel displays, electronic displays and others.
