Global self-cleaning glass market is expected to grow at CAGR of 4% during the forecast period. Self-cleaning glass is a low maintenance glass that is made by depositing a thin layer of chemicals which has photolytic and hydrophilic properties. The glass surface keeps it protected from dirt and other environmental conditions. These glass does not need to be cleaned as regularly a normal glass. Self-cleaning glass is mainly used in facades and areas with higher elevation that are hard to reach for manual cleaning.

With growing infrastructure, the demand for durable, scratch resistant and self-cleaning windows, and facades is also increasing. Apart from construction industry, the usage of self-cleaning glasses is increasing in many other industries as well, such as energy sector, healthcare and medical devices. Apart from these factors, the other advantages that are fuelling the growth of self-cleaning glass market include low maintenance time & cost, eco- friendly abilities and growing awareness about aesthetics & appearance.

The global self-cleaning glass market is segmented based on product type, application, end-user industry, company and region. Based on product type, the market can be bifurcated into hydrophilic coating and hydrophobic coating. The hydrophilic coating self-cleaning glass segment dominates the market owing to its increasing use in windows, facades, solar panels, etc. Based on end user industry, the market can be segmented into residential, commercial and industrial. The residential segment is estimated to hold the largest market share and prominence during the forecast period. This can be accredited to the rising demand for advanced glass coatings for a wide range of applications in residential sector.

Regionally, the self-cleaning glass market is gaining traction and expanding to various regions including Asia-Pacific, North America, South America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. North America dominates the market owing to various technological advancements in the region. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period due to the rise in demand for solar panels in the region.
