Polycarbonate Glazing Market Is Fragmented on the Basis of Application, End Use, and Region


Pune, India -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/15/2017 -- Synopsis of Polycarbonate Glazing:

Polycarbonate Glazing are heat-blocking sheets that reduce heat buildup as well as condensation control in skylights and architectural glazing for the treatment of greenhouses and garden centers. This material permits around 85% penetration of light, heats up less than glass and withstands mechanical blows. This material is flexible in nature which make it suitable for utilization in the manufacturing of curved surfaces. These sheets are of different size and shapes, ranging from typical flat sheets to multiple layers and some more specialized panels including standing steam or tongue and groove design. Polycarbonate glaze possess cellular polycarbonate arrangement that cause a lightweight sheet with high impact durability and high class thermal insulation. Polycarbonate is also available in solid form ranging from 3mm to 12mm. This product seems to be virtually indestructible and provides endless opportunities for usage in those areas where security and safety issues are paramount.

As per analysis, some of the market factors and trends identified in the Global Polycarbonate Glazing Market includes growth of construction sector, increasing automotive production, and favorable government regulations. Furthermore, growing urban population, escalating investments, and rising per capita disposable income in emerging economies is anticipated to give new impetus to the polycarbonate glazing demand over the forecast period. The benefits of these sheets percolated across commercial, industrial, and institutional sectors finding wide application scope in overhead glazing and greenhouse glazing which will further boost up the market growth. Moreover, shifting consumer preference towards green & sustainable construction is expected to benefit the Polycarbonate Glazing demand in the upcoming years. Additionally, rising demand for lightweight automobiles coupled with adoption of strict emission reduction norms are predictable drivers of the market. Moreover, significant increase in automotive production sales in developing and developed regions is expected to fuel the market growth. However, high cost associated with the Polycarbonate Glazing material along with the regulations prohibiting the usage of polycarbonate in automotive windscreens is predicted to hinder market growth over the forecast period. According to MRFR analysis, cumulatively the Global Polycarbonate Market was valued at USD 3,789.0 million in 2016 and is expected to reach USD 6,629.4 million by 2023 with 8.43% CAGR during the review period.
