About the Report:

From the perspective of materials suppliers, n-tech believes that the smart windows market continues to offer important opportunities.  The firm is seeing older technologies – such as photochromics – become more competitive with the dominant SPD and electrochromic materials and there are also entirely new materials such as hydrogels and versioned display materials that are beginning to play in the smart windows space.  n-tech is also impressed with the recent willingness of deep pocket investors and other well-known firms to get involved in the smart windows space.

This report identifies and quantifies the opportunities in the smart windows materials space and provides granular eight-year forecasts of the market expressed in volume and value terms.  The report also examines and assessed the strategies of notable firms operating on the market. The technologies/materials addressed include electrochromic, photochromic, hydrogel, thermochromic. PDLC, SPD, hydrogels, pixel-based technologies and microblinds.   The forecasts and analysis cover not only the active smart materials used in these technologies, but also the substrate materials; both plastic and glass.

The report also examines changing manufacturing patterns within the smart windows sector. In addition, this report analyzes a number of different business models being used in the smart windows sector and shows how materials play into the total smart windows value chain.

Under the name of NanoMarkets, n-tech has been covering the smart glass business for almost seven years and has therefore acquired a deep understanding of the dynamics of the smart windows sector and of materials selection within that sector.
