Introduction to Heat Resistant Glass

Heat resistant glass are the glasses that are capable of withstanding either very high or low levels of temperature fluctuations without shattering. The heat resistant glass contains lime soda or silica in order to resist heat. This glass is produced by heating silica at a high temperature for large time intervals and subsequently the molten form is processed into different glass, depending on the application and the property required. The heat resistant glass are basically crystalline compounds that are heated to such high temperatures  that they melt, thereby resulting in breakage of their molecular structure. When this broken structure cools, the molecules get relocked in the desired form, before they could recrystallize themselves. Some of the  properties of the heat resistant glass such as  melting point, brittleness, thermal resistance and few others depend on the chemical composition used during the manufacturing process.

Market Size and Forecast

The heat resistance glass market is anticipated to record a CAGR of around 15% over the forecast period i.e. 2019-2027, owing to increase in awareness regarding safety measures coupled with rules & regulations formulated by the governments. The inherent property of glass to resist heat and refract light is anticipated to increase the glass usage as an insulator. This property of glass is even improved by applying different thermal and chemical coatings which makes it appropriate for use in  different applications. The increasing awareness about green technologies and environmental concerns  is expected to witness a rise in demand for green building constructions.. The new enhancements in glass technology has made it possible to improve the properties of glass by focusing on improvement of aesthetics, safety and comfort levels, thereby increasing the application areas of heat resistant glass. The versatility in the heat resistant glass ranging from very low temperature to high temperature accompanied by  research and development is anticipated to increase the demand for heat resistant glass, thereby helping the growth of the market.   The rapid industrialization and urbanization followed by  increased investments in safety measures are anticipated to drive the  growth of the market.

The market is segmented by material type, application type and heat resistant temperature type out of which, the material type segment is further segmented into tempered glass, borosilicate and glass-ceramic. The tempered glass segment is anticipated to witness significant growth, on account of its wide applications both for residential as well as commercial purposes. The tempered glass contains heat resistant property coupled with toughness, owing to which it finds a huge application in mobile phones, laptops, coffee machines, shower doors. On the basis of the application, the construction and buildings segment is anticipated to register the leading market share on the back of necessity to ensure  safety, security and environment sustainability, coupled with increased demand for buildings and other construction to accommodate the growing population and other factors such as industrialization.
