Increasing need for energy-efficient temperature management and increasing demand for low cost raw materials to drive the growth of Global Construction Glass Market in the forecast period, 2022-2026.

According to TechSci Research report, Construction Glass Market - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition, Opportunity and Forecast, 2016-2026”, The global construction glass market is anticipated to grow at CAGR of over 4%, in volume terms, during the forecast period to reach 148.52 million tonnes by 2026. Surging demand for durable and low-cost raw material is elevating the demand for construction glass through 2026. Increasing construction activities to accommodate growing population and properties of glass, such as excellent insulation, high strength, soundproof, fire-resistance, make it a perfect choice for construction material, thereby, driving the growth of the market through 2026.

The use of construction glass allows for more natural light to enter the building. This glass feature is exploited in advanced glazing systems to reduce the requirement for heating and cooling in buildings, lowering energy consumption and CO2 emissions as a result. Furthermore, technological improvements such as solar control glass, self-cleaning glass, sound-reducing glass and insulated glazing glass have raised the demand for construction glass products in residential and non-residential buildings.

Rapid increase in construction of commercial structures and residential buildings due to rise in urban population is anticipated to boost the demand for construction glass market globally. Additionally, several private construction companies and governments’ thrust across the world to develop residential and commercial infrastructure in their respective countries is expected to aid the construction glass market in the next few years.
