  • Eastman Performance Films, LLC had launched the LLumar® IRX™ series of automotive window tints. IRX series aims at targeting infrared rays and raises heat-blocking performance through its advanced technology to an entirely new level for its LLumar brand.

Introductory Overview

A window film comprises of a polyester laminate sheet that is treated with reflective coatings in order to enhance the look of existing windows after its application, with one side of the film containing a scratch-resistant coating, while the other side contains an adhesive for bonding of the film to the glass surface. It is a highly thin film that is made up of polyester, plastic or any other material that permits the light to move across the other side. The primary aim of installing solar window film is to help save costs for the user as well as to protect the interior works or fabrics and furnishings from harmful ultraviolet radiations. Window films are normally applied to the interior surface of a glass window either at home or commercial building or in a car. These films are also formulated to withstand any scratches. Currently, as per the report of WHO, it is estimated that about 2 to 3 million individuals are reportedly suffering from non-melanoma skin cancers globally every year. Hence, solar control window films are now being considered as the next best alternative to mitigate the impact of environment on human-beings.

Market Size and Forecast

Solar control window films are estimated to generate high demand globally, owing to various factors performed by them such as reducing and controlling heat, saving energy, protection from fading and sun glaring and blocking ultraviolet radiations that can cause harm and damage to all human-beings. By installing solar window films, the interior of the rooms of homes or other buildings can be protected from the ultra-violet radiations of the sun that can cause fading. According to a report published by World Health Organization (WHO) on its website, it states that the number of cases of individuals reported with non-melanoma (skin cancer) was pegged at 1.04 million worldwide in 2018.

The global solar control window film market is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period i.e. 2020-2027. The market is segmented by component type, product type and by application, out of which, the application segment is anticipated to occupy the highest market share on account of heavy demand generated from increasing number of residential and commercial buildings globally, as this technology is being seen as a sustainable environment friendly alternative that can protect the lives of individuals globally. DOWNLOAD FREE SAMPLE REPORT HERE

Growth Drivers

Laying Stress On Reduction Of Co2 Emissions

There are a growing number of medical cases related to skin related diseases that are being reported across the world. In the light of that, there is a growing number of measures being taken up by governments across the globe to find out various ways to reduce Co2 emissions in order to mitigate the effects of climate change on human-beings. While on the search for alternative ways, many market players are coming up with new products that are technologically environment friendly and would sustain for a longer period of time. Solar control window films which is having several advantages to its credit such as preventing excess heat from causing any damage to the humans or environment whether at homes, offices or any other place.
