Global Impact Resistant Glass Market: Brief Overview

The global demand for impact resistant glass is increasing on account of its ability to stay close together even when shattered or being broken. The impact resistant glass remains tight in place by an interlayer which is made from polyvinyl butyral (PVB) and is laminated between two or more glass layers. The thickness of the glass and multiplicity of interlayers are responsible for the strength of the impact resistant glass, bolstering its demand from across applications.

Some of the applications for this glass include automotive windshields, skylight glazing, and it is also used on railings, staircases, fences, shower rooms, floors, window, table top, glass partition, glass sliding door, glass curtain wall, and glass façade, in geographical areas that are prone to hurricanes. They are also used in bullet proof glass, high speed train windshield, and explosion proof glass. While the market is challenged by the high cost of materials required for the manufacturing of impact resistant glass, the growth of this market is nevertheless anticipated at a healthy pace.
