Coated Glass Industry Overview
The global coated glass market size was valued at USD 32.32 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 71.71 billion by 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.3% during the forecast period.
The rising penetration of green buildings and the need to improve energy efficiency and rising awareness associated with it are projected to benefit the market growth over the coming years. Coated glass is used in residential and commercial buildings to keep the inside rooms cool and allow maximum visible light. By reflecting the infrared energy, the temperature inside the building is cooler and therefore it reduces the dependence on air conditioning systems. The product is also used in colder regions, to maintain the warm temperature of the room. In the building & construction industry, coated glass is generally used in the form of insulated glazing units in façades and windows. As a result, the growth of the construction industry in the U.S. is predicted to benefit the market.

The growth of the U.S. market is likely to be supported by the USD 1.2 trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill in the country, which is projected to drive the put-in-place construction value for transport infrastructure at an average rate of 8.9% from 2020 to 2025. This is anticipated to benefit the expansion of bridges, rails, ports, water transport, telecommunications, broadband, EVs, and energy. The construction industry has recovered well since the beginning of 2021, as the COVID-19 cases have reduced significantly, benefiting the resumption of industrial activities. The residential sector in the U.S. is likely to benefit from low mortgage rates and strong demand for bigger homes.
However, lack of skilled labor and rising costs for building materials remain short-term challenges for market players. Jumbo-coated architectural glass is the major trend in the U.S. market. As a result, companies are establishing jumbo coaters to serve their demand. For instance, in 2021, Guardian Glass started production of super jumbo coated glass with the dimension of 130” x 240”. The production has started at the company’s Carleton, Michigan facility.
Coated Glass Market Segmentation
Based on the Coating Insights the market is segmented into Hard and Soft
Soft coating segment held the largest revenue share of over 68.0% in 2021 and is also projected to grow at the fastest rate over the forecast period. In colder regions, to retain the heat inside the room, sputtered coating is applied to the outside face to re-radiate the heat inside the room. This type of glass is typically employed in double-glazed units and can be used in all climates.
For hard coated glass, special handling procedures and equipment are not required. This type of product is shipped and handled using the same equipment as that for non-value-added float glass. The significant factor contributing to the growth of this segment is the durability of hard coated products.
Based on the Application Insights the market is segmented into Architecture, Automotive, Optical, Others
The architectural application segment held the largest volume share of over 92.0% in 2021 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period.
The automotive segment is expected to grow at a rate of 3.7% from 2022 to 2030, in terms of volume. Coated products, particularly Low-e coated glass, are used in the windshield of automobiles.
Based on the Regional Insights the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Central & South America, & Middle East & Africa
The Asia Pacific held a revenue share of 35.0% in 2021, of the global market. China, Japan, and South Korea are significant markets in the Asia Pacific. Also, developing economies such as India and Southeast countries including Indonesia and Thailand has huge potential.
Europe coated glass market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.2% from 2022 to 2030, in terms of revenue. Heating & cooling, insulation, lighting, and self-powered building are the key areas of focus in the green construction industry in the region. Low-E coated solar control glass is used in many high-efficiency buildings where the heat is reflected from the windows leaving cold air for ventilation during the summers.
