Sun control films are plastic films that are applied on glasses of windows to lower the heat transfer from outside. These are extensively utilized in vehicles to prevent excessive heat from entering inside. These can reduce the load on air conditioners at homes by blocking heat from the outside.

Increasing concerns associated with the harmful effects of UV rays are estimated to augment the global sun control films market share in the future years. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), UV rays can often lead to non-melanoma skin cancers and photoconjunctivitis. Hence, the need to prevent these serious health issues related to UV exposure is a significant factor that is set to propel the market.

On the other hand, the booming construction industry worldwide is likely to boost the demand for sun control films as these can create a comfortable ambiance inside buildings. These can also hold the glass together even after the appearance of cracks.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading Sun Control Films Market Growth?

The rising number of several energy-conservation initiatives by government and private agencies, such as environmentally friendly structures and green buildings across the globe is expected to boost the demand for smart glass, thereby propelling the adoption of sun control films.

Governments of numerous developed countries are also offering incentives and mortgage schemes for encouraging people to buy green homes and adopt eco-friendly products, including smart glass. These glasses have excellent 3D design proposition and high acoustic, as well as thermal insulation.

These are often fitted in place of the usual glasses into skylights, windows, partitions, and doors. These deliver better sunlight control and are capable of preventing high indoor temperatures throughout the summer season, thereby lowering the building’s overall energy cost. These factors are anticipated to push the sales of sun control films in the evaluation period.

What are the Challenges Faced by the Sun Control Films Industry?

In emerging economies, many homeowners are skeptical of various benefits that sun control films provide. Thus, the lack of awareness about these products may hamper the growth in future. These films are sometimes difficult to install in case of varied frames, latches, and window lites. Wrong installation can leave the glass looking uneven and bubbly. Spurred by the aforementioned factors, the demand for sun control films may get obstructed in the coming years.

Why is Asia Pacific Emerging as an Opportunistic Sun Control Films Market?

Asia Pacific is anticipated to dominate by procuring the largest sun control films market share in the upcoming years. This growth is attributable to the rapid expansion of the construction sector in China and India.

The high demand for residential and commercial buildings in these countries is expected to augur well for Asia Pacific. As per the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), after the agriculture sector, the real estate industry is the second-largest employment generator in India. The industry is estimated to exceed US$ 9.30 billion in 2040 from US$ 1.72 billion in 2019. This trend is set to continue throughout the forthcoming years, thereby bolstering the market in Asia Pacific.
