Inflation and Looming Recession to Haunt Businesses:

In 2022 & 2023, market players expected to sail in rough waters; might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain. Further, U.S. economy is expected to grow merely by 3% in 2022. Purchasing power in the country is expected to fell nearly by 2.5%.
On the other hand, European countries to see the worst coming in the form of energy crisis especially in upcoming winters!! Right after COVID-19, inflation has started gripping the economies across the globe. Higher than anticipated inflation, especially in western world had raised concerns for national banks and financial institutions to control the economic loss and safeguard the interest of the businesses. Increased interest rates, strong USD inflated oil prices, looming prices for gas and energy resources due to Ukraine-Russia conflict, China economic slowdown (~4% in 2022) disrupting the production and global supply chain and other factors would impact each industry negatively.

Global Advanced Glass Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Higher Utilization of Advanced Glass in Solar Panel Manufacturing - In 2018, approximately 25 exajoules of renewable energy were consumed across the globe while the demand for solar PV is projected to reach around 100 gigawatts by 2024. Photovoltaic cells collectively make up solar panels which are being highly installed across the globe. Photovoltaic glass is the main technology behind the functionality of solar panels. Other benefits of solar control glass are cutting off the sun’s heat, allowing optimum light transmission, and others.

  • Growing Demand for Safety Glasses - It is estimated that nearly 75% of eye injuries are caused by sparks striking the eye. Moreover, around 1500 sustain job-related eye injuries in the United States every day.

  • Rising Sales of Optics & Lighting Across the Globe - As of 2022, the global lamps & lighting segment was estimated to generate a total revenue of approximately USD 70 billion.

  • Spiking Inclination of the Global Population and Sales of Television - In 2022, the television segment was anticipated to hit around USD 150 billion.


  • Massive Price for Raw Materials and Their Limited Availability - It is projected that the market will be hampered by the rising price of advanced glass, its limited accessibility owing to the widening gap between supply and demand, and the unreliable supply of raw materials.
