- Opportunity and Forecast, 2016-2025
Solar control window films play a significant role in reduction of carbon footprints by acting as a protective sheet on windows. These films help to maintain cooler conditions, which in turn, saves energy costs by lowering air conditioning needs. Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) is used to manufacture these window films owing to its strength and optical properties. Temperature imbalance is corrected to provide more comfort and deflect harsh glare from sun. In addition, more than 99% of the harmful ultraviolet rays that cause fading in furnishings and fabrics are filtered out.
The global solar control window films market is driven by rise in concerns to reduce carbon footprint, growth in construction industry in Asia-Pacific, and increase in need for safety & security. However, emergence of smart glass and issues about warranty & installation limit the growth of the market. Technological innovation creates new opportunities in the industry.
