Solar Control Window Films Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Construction Activities With the growing construction activities, the demand for solar control windows is also anticipated to boost. The large number of buildings which is estimated to be constructed in the forecasted period is anticipated to make use of solar control window films. This is since, they radiate solar heat but along with this it also gives an aesthetic view to the building.
  • Rise in Effects adverse of UV Rays According to the World Health Organization, there were about 15 million cataract-related blindness cases globally, 10% of which may be linked to UV radiation exposure. Moreover, it also has an adverse effect on the furniture in the house since they make them fade. Hence, solar control window film stops practically all of these dangerous UV rays from entering your building through the windows.
  • Aid in Preventing Break-Ins Along with filtering dangerous UV rays, there are films that are estimated to act as a security feature for your home. These films are more durable and could shield the valuables from theft and vandalism owing to a heavy-duty polyester compound.


  • Availability of Alternatives - On the global solar control window films market, the availability of substitutes including solar control glasses is projected to have an adverse impact. To reflect and radiate a significant percentage of the heat from the sun, different types of solar control glasses are produced. Additionally, some glasses let in solar light while blocking solar heat. Also, glare could be controlled with the use of solar control glasses. Due to this, solar control glasses are set to be used instead of solar control window films.
  • Lack of Awareness Among People
  • High Price of Solar Control Window Films
