Market Overview:

The global heat strengthened glass market is estimated to be valued at US$ XX Mn in 2018 and is projected to reach US$ XX Mn by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of X.X%. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for heat strengthened glass from the building industry.

Global Heat Strengthened Glass Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Heat Strengthened Glass is a type of glass that has been heat treated to increase its strength. It is about twice as strong as regular glass and can withstand temperatures up to about 400 degrees F. Heat Strengthened Glass is often used in windows, doors, and other applications where high strength is required.

The 3mm heat strengthened glass market size was valued at USD 5.6 billion in 2016 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% from 2017 to 2022. The growth can be attributed to the growing construction industry, especially in Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa regions due to rapid urbanization as well as rising disposable incomes of consumers.

The global construction industry was estimated at USD 957 billion in 2015.


3-5mm is the range of heat strengthened glass that can withstand high temperature. The 3-5mm thickness is ideal for solar panels as it provides maximum energy output and minimum shade. It also has applications in architectural glazing, automotive windows, cookware & ovens and building facades among others.

Application Insights:

Building industry was the largest application segment in 2017 and is projected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The product is used in buildings, residential as well as non-residential, for a variety of applications such as window panels, doorframes and skylights. Rising construction activities across the globe are expected to drive demand over the coming years.

Heat strengthened glass can be manufactured using various types of raw materials such as soda ash, lime and silica gel; however; soda ash process dominates overall consumption due to economies of scale associated with it.

Regional Analysis:

North America was the leading revenue contributor in 2017. The region is projected to maintain its position through 2030, with the U.S being a major contributor. The growth of the building and construction industry in North America on account of increasing investments in infrastructure development is expected to augment demand for heat strengthened glass over the forecast period.

The Asia Pacific regional market accounted for a share of more than 30% in terms of volume as well as revenue, owing to high product demand from end-use industries such as automotive and electronics across countries such as China, India, Japan and South Korea among others will drive growth over the next eight years  (2018-2030). In addition, rapid industrialization coupled with government initiatives aimed at promoting domestic manufacturing output is likely to have a positive impact on market development over this period.

Europe also held a significant share both in terms of volume.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for heat strengthened glass from the automotive industry as a result of increasing production of vehicles.
  • Growing demand for architectural and interior design applications, owing to the unique aesthetics offered by heat strengthened glass products.
  • Rising investments in research and development activities by key players to develop new and innovative products that can cater to specific needs of different end-use industries.
  • Proliferation of online retail platforms that offer a wide range of heat strengthened glass products at competitive prices, thereby aiding in market growth.
